The South Broadway Athletic Club and MMWA Wrestling embark on a unique half-year long journey to crown a new MMWA Champion on Saturday, January 14 at MMWA Launch.
The Super Six MMWA Championship Series is a dual-stage tournament. It locks the promotion’s six best wrestlers into round robin combat through May. The contestants are:
