MLW has officially announced the return of Underground.
The company announced that the Underground television series that ran years ago will start airing as a limited engagement on beIN SPORTS, MLW’s YouTube channel and all MLW platforms. The first of these episodes will air on July 11.
NEW YORK — Major League Wrestling’s (MLW) Underground TV series returns to airwaves this summer starting on Saturday July 11.
The episodes will air in their original unedited form in sequential episodic order and feature the touchstone moments that established Major League Wrestling.
“Since MLW returned in 2017, fans have demanded the return of the Underground and it finally happens this summer,” said MLW CEO and Founder Court Bauer.
Originally premiering in April 2003, MLW Underground launched the league into national and international prominence. The series features MLW originals, legends and luminaries such as: CM Punk, Terry Funk, Steve Corino and the Extreme Horsemen, Satoshi Kojima and dozens of the sport’s greatest wrestlers across multiple generations.
The first episode will feature the rise of Major League Wrestling, headlined by Vampiro vs. Christopher Daniels from the historic 2300 Arena, formerly known as the ECW Arena in South Philadelphia.
Joey Styles serves as the play-by-play man calling the action each and every week.
MLW Underground will air as a limited engagement on beIN SPORTS, MLW’s YouTube channel and all MLW platforms.
Back in April, MLW announced that it was currently in the process of transferring the MLW Underground series from tape to digital. The process began on April 20 and the company's goal was looking to digitize the entire series, which ran from 2003 to 2004.
