Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

Konnan vs Low Ki was entertaining.

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

Low Ki vs Lawlor

If there is one wrestling resurgence today I can do without, it is 100% Teddy Hart. Just...no.

I like the skits he has been doing lately but I understand the controversy behind him.

MLW just updated their attendance figures from last year.

Quote:
A revitalized Major League Wrestling ran 13 shows in 2018. The first half of the year included six shows in Orlando while the second half of the year included a more ambitious slate outside of Orlando, with only 1 show running in the city, while two events were held in Queens, NY, one in Fort Lauderdale and two back to back events in Miami to close out the year.

In numbers verified by Court Bauer of MLW, the company drew 9,322 fans in 2018 for an average of 717 fans per event (Court notes that there is a VIP section at every event but those complementary seats are never counted in the final figure). In the second half of the year, the company averaged 1,008 fans per show. 5 of 13 events sold out for the year (38%). The average for the second half is competitive with Ring of Honor, which averaged 964 fans per show (although ROH ran 18 shows over that period).

Just want to edit in, don't know how much to trust those numbers since promoters can always inflate them.

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

Hart's matches have never really been my thing. These days he still hasn't worked out the kinks and in some regards, he's a bit worse than in years past.

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

I need for these promotions to start doing wide crowd shots to verify these numbers.

I love the roster but the tv show is lackluster.

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

I'm loving the new stuff! But I found one of the 2002 episodes and I want more. Anyone know where I can find those shows? And no, I'm not talking about underground TV. I already have that.

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

Superfight wasn't as good as I expected. The build up and the hype was great but it was so rushed it was such a shame! Still loving MLW but I hope they don't make that mistake again

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

Watched their Super Fight show. Had a great venue with the 2300 arena (I think that's where they were?).

Pentagon/Fenix vs. Teddy/Davey was a really fun spot fest. And that finish of a Doomsday Device into a Canadian Destroyer. Damn. Now that's how you finish a match.

I don't know enough about MLW's stories or Tom Lawlor to know why the main event went 5 minutes. So yeah, not much to comment on that one.
