Major League Wrestling is coming to pay per view.

Sports Illustrated has learned from MLW CEO Court Bauer that the promotion’s debut pay per view will take place on Saturday, November 2 with the “Saturday Night SuperFight” card.

The show will take place near Chicago at Cicero Stadium, and Bauer revealed that all of MLW’s world titles will be on the line.

“This is a chance for MLW to make a statement,” said Bauer. “We want to give value to our fans. That’s why we’re charging only $19.95.”

Available on all cable and dish carriers in the United States and Canada, Bauer is also in ongoing conversations for a deal to stream worldwide.

Filled with a dynamic roster of emerging stars in “Filthy” Tom Lawlor, MJF, Brian Pillman Jr., Alex Hammerstone, and the Von Erichs, MLW differs from a number of other promotions through a combination of talent and presentation. Those seeking an alternative from sports entertainment have found a haven in the physical, sport-based MLW.




Bauer first began promoting shows under the MLW banner in 2002 but took a 13-year lay-off before reigniting the company in 2017. A former WWE writer, Bauer has assembled a talented team to lead MLW in the vastly competitive world of pro wrestling, and has even brought in sponsors and landed a television deal with beIN Sports, where MLW: FUSION airs every Saturday.

“This year has been about expanding into live programming,” said Bauer. “The evolution of a promotion is to produce more live content, and another milestone for us is pay-per-view. And now, we’re going to get there with Saturday Night SuperFight on November 2.”

No matches have been announced for the pay per view, but Bauer promised that the card will develop organically throughout the next two months.


“Watch carefully this summer,” said Bauer. “This card isn’t going to be thrown together in late October. All the seeds will be planted. And all of the championships will be on the line.”

MLW also tours, with its “Kings of Colosseum” show this Saturday in Chicago. In addition to its younger talent, MLW’s roster also includes Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Teddy Hart, as well as brings in stars from all over the world.

Timothy Thatcher, who is a former EVOLVE champion and one of the most technically-sound wrestlers in the world, will make his MLW debut at the July 25 show in New York. That show will also include famed luchador LA Park, as well as Savio Vega, who was a legitimate draw for WWE in the mid-90s with memorable feuds against Steve Austin and Goldust.




“I have a lot of goals for MLW. After hitting live television, we are moving to another goal in pay-per-view,” said Bauer. “And now the onus is on us to deliver something that feels different, especially in such a competitive environment. So we’re going to bring a legitimate superfight to pay-per-view with Saturday Night SuperFight.”
:fuckyeah MLW ON PPV

MLW for 19.99 is an absolute steal if you are a wrestling fan I think. They have been putting out some of the best weekly TV for ages now. Sure it can look a little rough on TV depending on the venue, and some promos can be abit rushed ect but it feels real and legit. They usually describe themselves as a 'fight league' and it feels like one.

Some of the talent they have is just great, and if they are all working for like $200 per night as mentioned that is insane!

I've felt like MLW could do with their own network or something for a while, they have weekly Fushion, MLW Radio, Cornette and co podcasts and their Main events. Currently we get to enjoy it all free on YouTube which, just doesn't seem fair! I'd pay like I do for Impact+ to support them.

I posted for another reason so here it is..

Fatu is great, its nice Contra are champs, I'm sure it will be very interesting now but Filthy Tom.. He's got charisma, he can cut his promos, he is likeable but.. I don't find him so fun to watch in ring, which is a shame and why I'm happy he's not champ anymore. Maybe he could do with going away and working on some movesets for a while then returning? He seems to have everything else but not the wrestling!

Wow 200 a night? More power to them. Hell I would do the same whatever it took me to get attention from bigger markets ie...WWE or AEW. Fatu is an awesome big man. Has they Samoan heritage and will sign I'm sure with AEW or WWE. Also, as for that pay-per-view I'm definitely down to buy it I decided as I get a little bit older and I'm blessed to have a little more money I will support this type of wrestling

There was a tweet recently about Impact and MLW and paying their roster. Basically saying they 'only pay $200' per night. Maybe some of the top end of the roster get abit more but, they are putting on shows for basically no money, I have nothing but respect for that! I hope they all can make it where they want to go to.

Fatu is definitely a star in the making isn't he? He has everything and is currently on fire!

I love MLW’s whole aura. It feels so fresh. I only knew a handful of the roster before i decided to start watching a few weeks ago but I’m really liking all of their talent (aside from Teddy Hart).

Putting contra in control really sets MLW up to have an exciting new few months

I was also in the same situation re: Teddy Hart, I thought he was too cocky and what not, but man he's awesome! He can really work in the ring.

I believe he has a lot of history that people dislike though so fair play.

I know he has a shitty history and i like his ring work but i cant get invested into his look.. not sure what’s going on there. I havent seen alot of the earlier episodes but is there a reason why dresses like someone from two decades ago? Is the fact that he loves to dress like a 90’s hip hop reject a character quirk of his? It confuses me more than it probably should

Mlw needs to start building up a credible babyface to dethrone Fatu. Its looking like Rey Horus getting a push. Not really a big Horus fan.

Haha, yeah the diamond chains, the pajama like suits. Somebody, literally last night on reddit, explained that he just does not care what people think, he just does what he enjoys. So I'm guessing that is out answer?
