Legendary wrestling broadcaster Tony Schiavone has signed a multi-year deal with Major League Wrestling (MLW).
Schiavone’s voice has been the backdrop for some of the biggest moments in the history of our sport. After taking a hiatus from wrestling since the demise of WCW, Schiavone resurfaced in 2017 via MLW. In addition to his weekly “What Happened When” podcast on the MLW Radio Network along with Conrad Thompson, Shiavone returned to the broadcasting both last fall with the reboot of Major League Wrestling.
Along with Rich Bocchini, Schiavone calls the action each week on MLW’s new weekly 1-hour series, FUSION. The show premiered last week to critical acclaim. Click here to check out our recap of Episode 1.
“I am grateful to MLW for the opportunity to call matches again and am excited about the chance to watch and hopefully help the careers of many young wrestlers grow,” Schiavone said in a press release. “This sport has always been my home.”
MLW CEO Court Bauer said, “For three decades, Tony has been one the most prominent voices calling the action. His work is the soundtrack that fans grew up listening to and today we are thrilled to know he will continue in this high visibility role for years to come. Tony’s standards, historical knowledge of the sport and enthusiasm for sharing the backstories of the wrestlers who enter the ring enriches the broadcast experience for the MLW and beIN SPORTS audience.”
