Currently, MLW airs their weekly show, Fusion, on their YouTube channel on Wednesday nights. The company went on hiatus at the start of the pandemic, but returned to action in October of 2020.
Heydorn’s Analysis: MLW has turned in a sneaky good product since they returned from hiatus near the end of last year. This deal confirms two things. First, MLW is a product that is marketable and that people want to watch. Second, pro wrestling continues to be a commodity with value for television companies looking for content.
