MLW is headed to Orlando.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that Major League Wrestling will hold 'Blood & Thunder' from Gilt Nightclub on Nov. 9. The event will be part of MLW Fusion television tapings. Gilt was the home of MLW for the first nine months following its relaunch in 2017.
“We’ve been trying to make this happen for more than a year,” MLW CEO Court Bauer told the Sentinel. “So much of our DNA is anchored in Orlando. The fanbase is incredible, and the longer we were away, the more I thought, ‘We’ve gotta get back.' So I have a lot of good feelings about returning. I’m excited for Orlando to see some new faces. Jacob Fatu had just barely joined us before we left Orlando, but he has just blown up this year. The Von Erichs get huge reactions everywhere they go. It’s fascinating to see how wrestling has changed and how we’ve had to find new ways to stand out.”
Bauer continued, saying about Gilt, “It’s this great mashup of retro and modern. With that staircase, it always reminded me of the old Sportatorium in Dallas, where the Von Erichs ruled. To see a new generation of Von Erichs coming down that kind of walkway is going to be really cool.”
Tickets for the event go on-sale Monday, Sept. 16.
MLW sent out the following press release:
