Major League Wrestling is reportedly ready to announce a new streaming deal.
Throughout the global pandemic, Major League Wrestling continued to announce several new broadcasting deals that would see them grow their distribution channels while they continue to formulate a strategy to develop new content during and after the pandemic.
One of these deals was with DAZN. It was recently announced that Major League Wrestling made the decision to opt-out of their deal with DAZN while that partnership was still in the early stages.
Now, a new report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter states that MLW is ready to announce their next streaming deal with a “major distributor” within the next week. The streaming platform will be home to not only MLW Fusion but the new project surrounding Azteca Underground. Reportedly, both shows are still set to be one hour long.
In accordance with Azteca Underground, The Crash and MLW are working together for a September 11 show in Tijuana, Mexico which would be a taping for the Azteca Underground concept. WrestlingInc noted earlier this week that MLW was planning on a potential MLW Azteca series.
Court Bauer recently stated that MLW’s time on YouTube was coming to an end and he was hoping to make an announcement shortly.
News of Major League Wrestling signing a streaming deal was first reported by PWInsider. PWInsider also reported that MLW was in talks with Discovery. Learn more about that here.
