That would be an upgrade. The wrestling world tends to revolved around AEW and WWE with the two major promotions taking over just about everything in the industry. However, there are a lot of other wrestling promotions around the country with a lot to offer and that is the kind of thing wrestling fans can always use. Now one of those companies might wind up being on a much bigger platform.
Despite everything that AEW and WWE have done, another promotion has managed to thrive for the better part of two years. That would be Major League Wrestling, which has gone from nothing (save for their thirteen year hiatus) to a regular weekly promotion with some interesting stories and talent. It turns out that another company has noticed this and might want in.
According to Wrestlinginc.com, Showtime is interested in Major League Wrestling programming. This comes after rumors came up of a potential partnership between Major League Wrestling and an unknown broadcaster, though it is not clear if that would be Showtime. At the moment there is no word on what Showtime would be airing. This comes after Showtime showed interest in airing AEW programming, which never took place. There is no word on what this would mean for the company’s deal with beIN Sports.
There have been some great things in Major League Wrestling. Check out a few of their better matches:
Opinion: I’m not sure if this is going to work but at the same time it could be quite the upgrade for Major League Wrestling. They have a great deal with beIN Sports and hopefully they don’t mess that deal up. Hopefully this goes well for everyone involved as it could mean something new for a lot of wrestling fans. Major League Wrestling has done well so far and maybe it can get even better on a bigger stage.
