WOW and MGM Partnership

A recent press release sent out by the promotion reads as follows:

“By challenging the status quo in transforming women’s wrestling for the past two years, we feel WOW is now positioned for tremendous growth,” said WOW Owner Jeanie Buss. “We are very excited to have MGM’s incredible management team, headed by Chairman and CEO Gary Barber and Mark Burnett, in place to grow our business model.”
They continued to note MGM Television’s work producing Lucha Underground, and how the experience will help the WOW brand.
“Barry and I witnessed first-hand the enormous global fan base of professional wrestling with our team’s production of Lucha Underground,”  Burnett noted. “We were looking to expand on our experience doing Lucha, and WOW felt like a natural progression in the space.  We love what Jeanie has developed and share in her vision of transforming this entertainment landscape. Together, we will look to elevate the WOW brand through creative production and enhanced character-driven storytelling.”
