Major League Wrestling set to return this November after hiatus due to COVID-19

Major League Wrestling Company CEO Court Bauer recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated revealing that the company will make its return this November after an eight-month hiatus. 

MLW, like many smaller promotions had to shutdown operations this past March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The company will begin a new set of television tapings this October.

Bauer stated that MLW programming will air on a weeknight in primetime on Fubo Sports Network.  He also said that MLW content will also be available on the subscription based sports streaming service DAZN. He also reasured fans that MLW programming will also continue to air Saturday nights on beIN SPORTS.  

Bauer did not disclose where MLW will tape their new shows, as in doing so “would just cause a wave of complications with the COVID protocol.”  Bauer did go on to say that the company is very excited to return for its fans. He also noted they have hired a COVID-19 compliance officer, who will help enforce safety protocols.

Bueer also said in the interview that the company is considering changing the name of its weekly series Fusion to Underground due to the  success of their MLW Underground shows that have aired during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

MLW has posted a teaser trailer entitled “The Restart” to their YouTube Channel promoting for their upcoming return, which can be viewed above.

Bauer also commented on Twitter (see below) regarding MLW returning from hiatus.
