WWE doesn’t usually play well with other pro wrestling companies. They are looking to change that perspective. They are also looking into how to fix an issue they have with such a loaded NXT roster.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE is looking into forming a partnership with MLW. They reportedly “don’t like the rep” that they don’t work with any other companies in the pro wrestling world. This has sparked the possible deal.
It is said that the idea is for NXT to send MLW some talent who aren’t getting a lot of television time. This will be a way for them to get some experience. It was said that the idea would be akin to the deal that WWE had with EVOLVE or ECW back in the day. That was before EVOLVE and ECW was bought out by WWE.
They are in talks with MLW and it’s along the lines of the old Evolve deal or to a degree the 90s ECW deal. The idea is to get some of the developmental guys who aren’t working on NXT television some work.
We’ll have to see if anything comes of this idea. There are a lot of NXT stars who don’t get an opportunity to work every week. MLW could provide them with a different environment to learn a bit and get some television exposure at the same time.
