Major League Wrestling (MLW) is in talks regarding a streaming service, according to CEO Court Bauer.
MLW was founded back in 2002 after the demise of WCW and ECW. The league ran shows for two years before suspending operations nearly two years later. Wrestlers who competed during MLW’s first incarnation include CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Dusty Rhodes, Terry Funk and ECW originals Raven, Sabu, Shane Douglas and Steve Corino.
MLW was revived in late 2017 and is now one of the fastest growing promotions in the world. MLW is selling out shows across the United States and has a healthy audience for the weekly MLW Fusion series on beIN SPORTS (and with other TV distributors overseas). It all amounts to a lot of great wrestling content in the archives that league officials are working on bringing to fans (and monetizing).
Fans have been asking Court Bauer about classic MLW content. Bauer revealed that talks are underway for the next phase of MLW’s digital distribution.
