I have raised this issue a few weeks ago. And when you take a look at the heavier guys they consist of ace romero and Hughes who are more for fast matches and short fill ins. One guy though who is a heavy weight and still entertaining is Davey Boy Smith Jr. Since Tedy Hart has the middle weight title they could maybe look to get Davey Boy involved in thw Heavyweight mix and build up the heart foundation even more.Having the two championships differentiated by weight class is strange to me. I have zero issue with smaller guys challenging for heavyweight titles, but when 90% of the roster is a lightweight it seems odd to then introduce a Middleweight belt. It clearly is intended to be more midcard, but the division makes little sense. And both Teddy Hart and Gringo Loco look to be larger than middleweights perhaps?
I love MLW - quickly has become one of my favorite promotions - but there are still a lot of head scratchers when it comes to the booking. The in-ring product is really good though, and the talent roster is one of the best going.
I like the skits he has been doing lately but I understand the controversy behind him.Low Ki vs Lawlor (Y)
If there is one wrestling resurgence today I can do without, it is 100% Teddy Hart. Just...no.
https://www.wrestlinginc.com/news/2019/01/how-many-fans-did-major-league-wrestling-draw-in-2018-649647/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).
