Major League Wrestling has been around for quite a while now and has provided fans with solid in-ring action and engaging storytelling over the past several years. Stars such as MJF cut their teeth in MLW before becoming major stars elsewhere. MLW is going strong as ever and now it appears the company will finally go live this year.

Major League Wrestling has provided continuous content through quite a few platforms over the years including YouTube, DAZN, VICE TV, Reelz and others. However, fans complain about the lack of live content as events are taped and matches air weeks or months later.

While speaking with Busted Open Radio, MLW founder Court Bauer revealed that MLW will finally be going live this year. The company has been working towards making this a reality even before the pandemic started back in 2020.

Initially, they were collaborating with DAZN to achieve this objective, but DAZN’s business model shifted from a US-centric approach to a more international focus. However, MLW has now progressed significantly in discussions, and Court Bauer can confirm that the live broadcast of MLW will happen this year.


“The number one thing fans have been asking is, ‘How can I see MLW live?’ That’s been one of the things we’ve been working on since pre-pandemic. It was something we were working on with DAZN, and then DAZN’s whole model changed and they went from attacking US to being more of an international business. Now, we’re finally at that point where we’re pretty deep in our conversations and I can tell you that MLW is going live this year. We’re developing a few tentpoles. We have established some such as War Chamber, Battle Riot, or SuperFight.

For us, the next step is adding super cards to a lineup where you can watch live worldwide. We’ve had conversations and have now received bids. We should be announcing something before the summer. Now fans have a chance to not just hear about results and see it a few weeks later on TV. They’ll have a weekly TV show, and they’ll have this unique window to see MLW and see those fights only there. Wherever there is, we’ll be talking about that soon. That’s basically what I’m consumed with now, besides putting together this weekly show, is finishing off this deal. We’re pumped and being able to get into the mix with MLW live is a huge part of our future.”

MLW Underground currently airs Tuesdays on REELZ and fans are certainly happy to know they will finally be able to see live shows this year. We’ll have to wait and see whether MLW will see more growth in the coming months.
