According to a report by ESPN.com, Major League Wrestling (MLW) has signed heavyweight champion Jacob Fatu to a new long-term contract extension. Fatu’s new contract extends his new deal through 2025, keeping him away from WWE and AEW.
PWInsider added some additional details about Fatu’s contract status. Previous contracts signed by MLW wrestlers would only prevent them from working for WWE, but the newest MLW contracts have reportedly been to become “more exclusive in nature” due to the recent emergence of All Elite Wrestling (AEW). Other talents who recently signed new MLW contracts include Alex Hammerstone, Richard Holliday, Myron Reed, and Salina de la Renta.
