Showtime Network Interested in MLW?

Showtime Network Interested in MLW?
According to Wrestling Inc., sources close to the situation confirm that there is interest in MLW from Showtime.

As previously noted, there has recently been talk of some big news breaking regarding MLW and a major partnership, so that can be the case. While Showtime has not aired any wrestling programming, they have had interest in the genre in the past. The network was in talks with AEW just last year.

Former WWE producer Court Bauer founded MLW as a wrestling promotion in 2002. MLW returned in 2011 as a radio network, which featured popular podcasts from Bill Prichard, Tony Schiavone and Eric Bischoff.

MLW relaunched as a wrestling promotion in 2017. Just one year later, they signed a television deal with beIN Sports, where they air on Saturday nights. They also have a deal with FITE TV for streaming content.
