Court Bauer has officially clarified MLW's current standing with Pro-Wrestling NOAH after MLW started working with Dragon Gate.
Months ago, MLW announced that it has started a working relationship with Dragon Gate. However, there are some who wondered what that meant for the future of the MLW/NOAH relationship. In an interview with MLW, Bauer made it clear that MLW is still in touch with NOAH.
"Surprise, surprise. We remain in business with NOAH. We actually had some talent teed up to come in and vice versa before the virus hit Japan. I understand it’s come back pretty bad in Japan which is dispiriting. I should also give a quick update on Dragon Gate, as many fans are excited for their introduction. Because of the pandemic, visas and the process which enables them to legally be able to work in America has been significantly delayed. Things will pick up in due time but we’re at the mercy of the realities of the world and government processing applications," Bauer said.
MLW isn't only working with Japanese wrestling promotions as he is also in a working relationship with Mexico's AAA and Bauer said he's excited for the upcoming MLW/AAA Super Series that will air on Fusion.
"Beyond Japan, I also want to praise Dorian Roldan and his team at AAA in Mexico. It’s been an incredibly positive relationship. We’re planning on some exciting collaborations on the horizon. I can’t wait for everyone to see the MLW/AAA Super Series on MLW Fusion," Bauer said.
