The Los Angeles Gladiators are keeping their shields up with some familiar faces on their Overwatch Contenders team, Gladiators Legion.

The team announced the name of their Contenders squad today. They also revealed the roster, which contains players that long-time Overwatch esports fans will know well.

The full roster consists of Byong Ho “Panker” Lee, Corey Nigra, Daniel “gods” Graeser, Jeffrey “Blase” Tsang, Mark “Pookz” Rendon, Randal “Roolf” Stark, and coach Gannon “RaptorZ” Nelson.

Gladiators Legion is the second official Contenders team announcement of the day, after London Spitfire revealed their affiliate team, British Hurricane, this morning.

New York Excelsior, Houston Outlaws, Florida Mayhem, and San Francisco Shock, all have Contenders affiliate teams as well, with announcements of those rosters and team names expected in the coming days.
