Despite having their hands in many television pots, Court Bauer is still searching for the a steady home.

“In some ways, we’re still a free agent,” Bauer said of a TV deal when speaking to the Associated Press.

MLW has been the home of talents such as MJF, Lio Rush, Brian Pillman Jr, and more. Bauer believes that when they land a big television deal, the company will be able to hang on to such talents.

"We couldn’t afford to keep them,” Bauer said. “But as our rights deals get better, we’ll pay the talent. We always tell the talent, we’ll grow with you. If you believe in the system, trust the process. This is why all the promoters want you, because we’ve got you.”

MLW is set to air its Fightland special on VICE TV at 10 p.m. ET on Thursday.
