It was announced that Battle Riot would air as MLW's first two-hour television special on July 27 on beIN Sports; the card consisted of matches that resulted from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches, with results predetermined by MLW's writers.

Lawlor eliminated Hager by tossing him over the top rope to win the Battle Riot; the feud between Team Filthy and Stud Stable which had begun before Battle Riot escalated due to Tom Lawlor's elimination of Jake Hager to win the Battle Riot.
