As previously reported, there has recently been talk of some big news breaking regarding MLW and a major partnership that would be “transformative to MLW’s immediate and long-term future.”
We have heard from sources close to the situation that there is interest in MLW from Showtime. We do not currently have any other specifics.
While Showtime has not aired any wrestling programming, they have had interest in the genre in the past. The network was in talks with AEW just last year.
We reached out to MLW CEO Court Bauer, who had no comment.
Bauer founded MLW as a wrestling promotion in 2002. MLW returned in 2011 as a radio network, which featured popular podcasts from Bruce Prichard, Tony Schiavone and Eric Bischoff.
MLW relaunched as a wrestling promotion in 2017. Just one year later, they signed a television deal with beIN Sports, where they air on Saturday nights. They also have a deal with FITE TV for streaming content.
Stay tuned for more updates on MLW.
