He’s worth keeping. AEW has burst onto the wrestling scene like few other wrestling companies ever have in history. They only started earlier this year and yet they are already the second biggest wrestling promotion in the United States. However, one consequence to their rise that has gone unnoticed so far is the impact they will have on independent wrestling. It turns out that it might not be so bad though.
Major League Wrestling CEO Court Bauer recently spoke with Wrestlinginc.com and discussed the idea of wrestlers being forced out of their independent contracts as soon as the AEW TNT show debuted. This includes Maxwell Jacob Friedman, who has worked for Major League Wrestling since the beginning of their television series. There is no word on when Friedman’s contract with Major League Wrestling expires.
This man is a treasure. Check out Friedman’s work in Major League Wrestling:
Opinion: That’s a good thing to know for the company’s future, along with the futures of various other companies. AEW just making a lot of their talent disappear almost overnight would be a near disaster for most of them and Friedman is a big deal in Major League Wrestling. Hopefully he can appear on both shows for a long time to come as he is quite the gem no matter where he is.
Do you think Friedman will stay with Major League Wrestling? How well can he do in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
