On January 11, 2022, MLW filed an anti-trust lawsuit against WWE, accusing them of interfering in television and streaming deals and poaching talent.

The lawsuit went through multiple amendments and motions. It was dismissed in February 2023, but MLW filed an amendment. A judge denied WWE's motion to dismiss MLW's amended lawsuit in June. MLW argued WWE was engaging in unfair practices, including blocking ROH and AEW events. MLW also stated that WWE's Stephanie McMahon interfered with a MLW deal with FOX-owned streaming service Tubi.
