Major League Wrestling announced during their Fightland event and television tapings in Philadelphia, PA last night the company has entered into a working relationship with the Japanese promotion Dragon Gate.
Court Bauer also made the announcement on Twitter and noted that “The gate to the Americas have been opened.” The post also noted that more details are coming.
Dragon Gate was founded by Takashi Okura and is owned by parent company Gaora. The company’s headquarters are in Kobe, Japan.
According to a report from POST Wrestling, it is not known what the time frame is for the first wave of Dragon Gate talent to appear in the U.S. as the process of securing visas is said to be longer in the current political climate. It is also being said that MLW will begin the immigration process immediately.
MLW also recently announced that they have signed and agreement with ICM Partners for the agency to shop around MLW’s broadcast and streaming rights.
MLW currently broadcasts their weekly Fusion show on beIN Sports and beIN Sports Espanol, in addition to streaming the show on their YouTube Channel.
