Vice TV is set to air their first-ever pro wrestling event – MLW’s Fightland event.
As we’ve noted, MLW is set to tape Fightland on Saturday, October 2 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia. The show will feature a big Title vs. Title match, plus the beginning of the 2021 Opera Cup Tournament.
In an update, it was announced today that Fightland will air as a one-hour Vice TV special on Thursday, October 7 at 10pm ET, following the “Dark Side of the Ring” episode that airs that night, focusing on the controversial life and career of Ion Croitoru (aka Johnny K9, Bruiser Bedlam).
“’MLW Fightland’ on Vice TV blows up the tired, old wrestling format. Everyone has played it safe in presenting wrestling the same way for 25 years,” MLW CEO and founder Court Bauer told TheWrap. “‘MLW Fightland’ offers viewers a transparent, unfiltered all access look into the smoke-filled arenas of wrestling. We will present big fights and big stories with investigative reports giving viewers a raw, inside look at the very real world of wrestling.”
