Major League Wrestling has announced a match between Taya Valkyrie and Billie Starkz for MLW Superfight 2023. The event happens this Friday at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia. Valkyrie was originally set to face Delmi Exo, who will get a new opponent later today. The announcement reads:

Major League Wrestling today announced a World Featherweight Championship bout: Taya Valkyrie (champion) vs. Billie Starkz at MLW SuperFight’23 this Saturday, February 4 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.

🎟 Tickets start at $15 at MLW2300.com and the 2300 Arena box office.

AZTECA Lucha promoter Cesar Duran is once again living up to his reputation as a cunning powerbroker, having orchestrated a change in this Saturday’s World Featherweight title fight.

The reasons behind the matchmaking machinations remains unclear, however, Duran met behind closed doors with league officials and ultimately got what he wanted: a remixed line-up for this Saturday’s SuperFight card in Philadelphia.

The World Featherweight Champion Taya Valkyrie will now defend her title against Billie Starkz.

Starkz, whose star is rising seemingly higher and higher with each outing, is one of wrestling’s most promising up-and-coming competitors.

There are whispers that there’s been static between the champ and the teenage phenom. MLW.com confirmed a recent verbal exchange at an MLW event between the two.

A standout star on the midwest independent circuit, Starkz is already 4-year veteran of the squared circle, having debuted in her mid-teens. Fresh off her first tour of Japan, Starkz’s momentum will be at an all-time high as the Louisville native fights for her first world title.

Meanwhile, Delmi Exo, who many found to be a “significant threat” to Taya’s title reign, is protesting the remixed line-up. League officials are expected to announce her new opponent later today.

Will Taya trounce another pretender to the throne? Will Billie become the youngest world champion in MLW history?
