An update on how Major League Wrestling contracts are changing to fit the evolved wrestling landscape as they gear up for their restart.
As Major League Wrestling inches closer and closer to their restart, there are new details regarding updated MLW contracts and how talents such as Brian Pillman Jr. where are allowed to appear on AEW television while also being contractually obligated to MLW, as originally reported by Fightful Select:
MLW has been a hot topic over the last week, as they're about to resume their tapings. We mentioned that several wrestlers who had contract disputes will still be there, but we're also working to find out details on the new MLW contracts being offered. For some reason, the language in many MLW contracts didn't prohibit their wrestlers from wrestling in AEW, simply because it didn't exist at the time they signed. Many other companies outright prohibit wrestlers from appearing on North American televised wrestling shows. We're told that some people were offered new contracts earlier this year that would have changed that, but one ended up passing on the deal before it even got to them.
Even though Brian Pillman Jr. very excited about a potential future in All Elite Wrestling, he and Davey Boy Smith Jr. plan on fulfilling their commitments to MLW. Learn more at this link.
