WWE holds talks with Major League Wrestling for talent appearances

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. It’s 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.
