MLW Fusion is moving to Saturday nights. Major League Wrestling recently presented a live show on Saturday, February 2nd from the 2300 Arena and are now making the move to Saturdays permanent.
BeIN Sports’ and MLW’s desire for more live specials played a role in the move.
“With the majority of our cards on Saturday nights and beIN interested in doing more live broadcasts in 2019, it made sense to move the show to Saturdays,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “Saturday night wrestling has a history dating back decades. It’s an honor to bring that tradition back starting this Saturday night on beIN.”
The show will begin airing at 9 PM est.
MLW Fusion’s Spanish broadcast will move to Monday nights on BeIN SPORTS en Espanol.
WWE Smackdown Live! is currently scheduled to debut on Fox’s Friday night schedule beginning October 4th. It is not clear if they will remain in the Friday night slot long-term, however.

They defeated the Lucha Bros in the show’s opener. Tom Lawlor then won the MLW World Championship from Low-Ki in the night’s main event.
“Starting this Saturday February 16th, MLW will move to Saturdays on beIN SPORTS and to Monday nights on the Spanish network, beIN SPORTS en Espanol,” states an MLW Press Release.
