Report: MLW Streaming Deal With FOX Up In The Air Following Negative Response From WWE
Interference from WWE
Major League Wrestling's streaming deal with FOX is "in question" following an unfavourable response from WWE.
While FOX's streaming service TUBI did not secure the rights to be the exclusive home of the WWE Network in the United States, with NBCUniversal's Peacock instead picking up the contract, FOX did look to add professional wrestling to their streaming platform and they had reportedly come to a deal with MLW, according to Fightful Select.
The deal was set to be officially announced in August, but WWE reacted negatively to the agreement after they were made aware of it. As a result, the future of the MLW-FOX deal is now up in the air.
It emerged back in early August that MLW had agreed to a deal with a streaming service, which is why the promotion had removed episodes of Fusion from their YouTube channel. PWInsider noted at the time that the deal was a "big one" for MLW, but if FOX and the promotion will press ahead with their agreement remains to be seen.
