According to a report by Fightful Select, MLW announced a new partnership with DAZN in June, with the wrestlers having been optimistic about appearing on a new platform. They’re hoping the new deal will bring the company new fans from the boxing and MMA side.
The MLW roster doesn’t believe the deal will be a game changer, but they think it’s a ‘significant foot forward’ and they have more confidence in MLW. There had been some issues with the brand after they didn’t run shows for months and some wrestlers have been limited in their negotiations. MLW is obligated to fulfill dates on many of their contracts and are supposed to do so within a set amount of time.
The latest MLW Underground is now available featuring the late “Dr. Death” Steve Williams.
