Promotion owner, Cout Bauer, also recently asked his followers on Twitter where they would like to see MLW run a show next.

For those unfamiliar with the Blues Brothers, it’s a hint that Chicago will be the next city MLW expands their territory into.
Major League Wrestling in 2018
It’s been an eventful year for Major League Wrestling. From 2002-04, the company produced 34 television shows in a period when alternatives to WWE were scarce.
Bauer would eventually go on to work in creative at WWE and MLW went on hiatus for 13 years. In the summer of 2017, however, Bauer promoted MLW “One Shot.” The success of that event then led to them announcing they would run a more frequent schedule the next year.
MLW signed a television deal with BeIN Sports and began producing episodes of Fusion earlier this year. Full episodes of Fusion air on BeIN Sports on Friday nights and are posted to YouTube the following Saturday at 6 PM.
The episode which aired last night on the network and will be posted to YouTube later today features a two-ring steel cage War Games match.
