First Step of the Road to Riptribution

We’re on the road to Riptribution.

Next month will see Monster Pro Wrestling host its biggest event of the year, with the promotion set to host it’s annual “Ripper Royal,” a match which will see MPW fans bring the weapons for the evening’s main-event battle royal.
