Tonight, on the season finale of MLW Fusion, backstage correspondent Alicia Atout announced that MLW will begin an Open Draft starting next week.
Atout happened to mention that, currently, the company is in talks with “free agents, top international wrestlers and some phenomenal prospects.”
Last week, it was reported that MLW is in talks with other global promotions such as Dragon Gate Pro-Wrestling in Japan and Revolution Pro Wrestling in the U.K., who happen to be part of MLW’s Championship Committee. There is the possibility that AAA in Mexico will continue their working relationship with MLW since the head of AAA’s creative team, Konnan, is part of the MLW roster.
Not to mention former Lucha Underground owner/proprietor Dario Cueto made his debut earlier tonight on MLW and hinted towards creating “a new temple.” That, too, could play a factor in who’s involved in this Open Draft.
The Open Draft will be available to watch on MLW’s YouTube and social media pages. More information about this will be revealed in the coming days. Stay tuned.
