Filthy Island is officially an interpromotional extravaganza at sea with Rocky Romero confirmed to compete in one of the prizefights from paradise this Wednesday.
Representing New Japan Pro-Wrestling, Romero will take on lucha veteran Gringo Loco in singles competition.
While Lawlor claims there will be $10,000 purse for each and every winner, Filthy Island has been plagued with sponsors dropping out with rumors of financial woes persisting going into this week’s event.
“With what I’ve heard about the state of Lawlor’s preparations for Filthy Island, I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends MLW’s relationship with New Japan,” states Court Bauer.
