MLW Returning This Autumn With New Content
Another promotion shakes off the cobwebs...
For the first time since March, Major League Wrestling will be holding television tapings.
It was announced in Sports Illustrated that MLW will return in the autumn, with tapings taking place at "an undisclosed East Coast venue" in October. The programs will begin airing in November.
“The hibernation is over,” MLW CEO Court Bauer says. “We’ll air in November on a weeknight in primetime on Fubo Sports Network, and our content will also be available on DAZN, which includes exclusive content, and Saturday nights on beIN. As for the filming, we’re not going to publicly announce our location. If fans were to show up, it would just cause a wave of complications with the COVID protocol, but we are very excited to return for our fans."
Bauer also confirms that the company has hired a COVID compliance officer, and there will be frequent testing, as well as adherence to recommended distancing guidelines.
In the wake of the pandemic shuttering production, MLW (in lieu of its weekly Fusion series) aired an Anthology series, featuring past and present talents. After that, the company began re-airing broadcasts from their original 2002-04 run.
Listed for the tapings are World champion Jacob Fatu, Tom Lawlor, National Openweight champion Alex Hammerstone, Middleweight champion Myron Reed, Salina de la Renta, Richard Holliday, Brian Pillman Jr, and Calvin Tankman.
