Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE
has held talks with Major League Wrestling to get some of
the NXT talent who are not appearing on television to work
the MLW shows.
WWE ran several non-televised live events around Florida
with NXT and WWE Performance Center talent to give their
trainees experience performing in front of a live crowd,
usually of a few hundred. But since the pandemic started,
these live events are no longer taking place, leaving the
majority of the talent without an outlet.
The company also recently taped a pilot episode titled NXT:
EVOLVE which features these individuals. Its unknown if
plans for that show remain in the pipeline but a partnership
with MLW would probably end up cheaper to run.
Major League Wrestling was founded in 2002 in Philadelphia
by former WWE writer Court Bauer. MLW currently airs on DAZN
and BeIn Sports and will soon air its Fusion television
series on Vice TV.
