Sam Adonis Signs With MLW, Debut Set For Fightland 2022

Samo Adonis will compete on the upcoming MLW Fightland card.

As Major League wrestling continues to gear up for its next season, more talent signings have been made. Sam Adonis, the younger brother of Corey Graves, has also agreed to terms with the promotion. MLW issued the following press release:

Mexico top star Sam Adonis signs with MLW, debuts in Philly 10/30 at FIGHTLAND
Get tickets starting at $15 at

(PHILADELPHIA, PA) – Major League Wrestling today announced the signing of Sam Adonis, who will debut at MLW FIGHTLAND ’22 on Sunday, October 30 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.

— Tickets start at $15 at and the 2300 Arena box office.

The card is a FUSION TV taping, airing on beIN SPORTS nationwide on cable and dish and in over 60 countries around the world.

A perennial main eventer in CMLL and now AAA, Sam Adonis was once described by a Mexican tabloid as “the most hated man in Mexico.” Now he’s gone Major League.

Standing 6’4″, the Pittsburgh showboat’s big mouth and unapologetic attitude have helped launch him into stardom.

Flagrantly breaking the rules in bouts, Adonis can back up his trash talking, unleashing 450 splashes, brainbusters and his signature Orange Blossom Thunder Driver.

Forever hated by Mexican fans for defeating Blue Panther and taking his hair in a high profile Luchas de Apuestas, Adonis thrives on the shock and scandal of his fame and success.

This would prove true with Ultmo Dragon. Adonis spent time at the Toryumon Mexico promotion, where he feuded with Dragon. The feud would would cross continents, with Dragon and Adonis clashing in All Japan, where Adonis would shockingly rip the mask off of the Japanese icon.

Ruthless in and away from the ring, this abrasive heat seeker can switch-up styles from lucha to brawling to whatever it takes to get the win.

Now Mexico’s top rudo enters Major League Wrestling ready to ignite a trailblazing path like only the “American Arrogant” can.
