MLW will finally be airing new content on VICE beginning with Fightland and the major title for title confrontation between Fatu and Hammerstone.
As first reported by Tony Maglio of TheWrap, MLW Fightland, which will be held on October 2 from the former ECW Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania will air on TV the following Thursday, October 7 on VICE. The special will be preceded by the Johnny K9 episode of Dark Side of the Ring.
“’MLW Fightland’ on Vice TV blows up the tired, old wrestling format. Everyone has played it safe in presenting wrestling the same way for 25 years,” Court Bauer, CEO, and founder of Major League Wrestling, told TheWrap. “‘MLW Fightland’ offers viewers a transparent, unfiltered all-access look into the smoke-filled arenas of wrestling. We will present big fights and big stories with investigative reports giving viewers a raw, inside look at the very real world of wrestling.”
Major League Wrestling and VICE came to an agreement earlier this year and the promotion has been airing previous content on Saturday afternoons on VICE.
