In a recent interview with Fightful, MLW CEO Court Bauer discussed his promotion’s new deal with FITE and how it all came together.
MLW announced a deal with FITE for pay-per-view events earlier in May. Bauer said,
“Mike Weber and our side have had conversations for like five or six years about doing something big. The stars didn’t align for it. Finally, we have the right conversation at the right time this spring, and it just locked. It made sense for both sides to do it, so we did it. We’ve been very close over the years with doing something with FITE. I first worked with Mike when we were both at Ring of Honor in 2013 or 2014, so we’ve known each other for a long time.”
