Kojima is ready for war with CONTRA

MLW have announced MLW World Heavyweight Champion Satoshi Kojima will be in action at the beIN SPORTS TV taping portion of MLW Blood & Thunder’24, from the Coliseum in St. Petersburg, FL on Friday, July 12.

Prepare for an unforgettable night of high-octane action as the legendary Satoshi Kojima, the only 2-time MLW World Heavyweight Champion, returns to the ring at the BeIN SPORTS TV taping portion of MLW’s spectacular event on July 12 in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Kojima, revered as one of the most beloved wrestlers in the history of MLW, is not one to remain silent about the injustices faced by him and his friends. Following the brutal attack by CONTRA Unit at War Chamber, Kojima is set on avenging the ambush that left him and his allies reeling. Now, he is returning to the very scene of that crime, more determined than ever.

In recent months, Kojima has found camaraderie in fellow wrestler AKIRA, bonding over their mutual love for dogs and humorously forming a “Canine Club” within the MLW locker room. However, their friendship was ruthlessly targeted when CONTRA Unit struck again at Battle Riot VI, viciously putting AKIRA through a table from the stage. This heinous act has only fueled Kojima’s fury, as he seeks to bring justice to those responsible.

Will Satoshi Kojima cross paths with CONTRA Unit on July 12? Fans in attendance July 12th won’t have to wait much longer to find out. With tensions at an all-time high, the anticipation is palpable as Kojima sets his sights on avenging AKIRA.

Kojima’s opponent for the evening will be revealed live on the night of July 12, adding another layer of excitement and unpredictability to the event. Known for his unwavering dedication and tireless effort for his fans and friends, Kojima promises to deliver a performance and bring his iconic fighting spirit to St. Petersburg.

Don’t miss this chance to witness Satoshi Kojima, the indomitable MLW World Heavyweight Champion, as he takes to the ring with a mission.
