Major League Wrestling has locked up another member of their roster to a new deal. The promotion has announced they have signed current Middleweight Champion Myron Reed to a long-term deal. Terms and length of the contract have not been revealed.
“Myron has emerged as an extraordinary athlete and important voice in the sport,” said Court Bauer, MLW CEO and founder. “We look forward to seeing the champ showcased in MLW as he enters his prime.”
Reed defeated Teddy Hart to win the promotion’s middleweight title on November 9th, 2019 on a show from Orlando. He’s just the third wrestler to hold the title with Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Hart being the other two.
Reed is currently a member of the “Injustice” trio in MLW along with Kotto Brazil and Jordan Oliver. The group has stated that MLW’s referees and management are biased against them.
“Establishing the Injustice movement earlier this year, Reed has been an outspoken advocate with a powerful message. Now consisting of Reed, Jordan Oliver and Kotto Brazil, the trio are one of the most powerful and prominent teams in the league,” an MLW Press release for the signing reads.
The 22-year-old from Louisville, Kentucky made his pro-debut in 2016.
