MLW Teases An Island Event In 2021
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Major League Wrestling hasn’t been holding live events. Instead, they’ve gotten creative with their efforts to produce new content with shows like MLW Pulp Fusion. MLW has also made headlines, as they’ve resigned several top stars and reached a deal with DAZN, a sports streaming service. Now, MLW is also focusing on 2021. A post on the company’s official website hinted that MLW may hold an event on an island next year:
“While the league continues to work towards a resolution to regain key aspects of its operations from CONTRA Unit, MLW remains open for business.
While the on-going COVID-19 pandemic continues, there is optimism that a vaccine is on the horizon and as such, the league is having meetings to push forward on expanding MLW into new territories.
MLW.com can confirm that league officials have been having discussions to bring an event to new shores in 2021.
The two locations in the mix for landing an MLW event in 2021 include: Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
With the World Tag Team Champions Ross and Marshall Von Erich calling Hawaii home these days, there’s been “immense enthusiasm” from the entertainment sector in the 50th state.
As for Puerto Rico, it was revealed on this week’s Pulp FUSION via Savio Vega that MLW’s CEO met with Puerto Rican government officials about hosting a Caribbean Heavyweight Championship title fight.
“’We are cautiously optimistic about this project,’” said an anonymous league official.”
