Court Bauer’s MLW is moving all of its epic premium live events to a new home on FITE’s subscription service, making its hybrid wrestling more accessible worldwide.

New York, NY (May 2, 2023): FITE announced that all of Major League Wrestling’s (MLW) premium live shows will now be exclusively shown on FITE+, included as part of the subscription. The promotion joins the rapidly expanding world of live and on demand content on the most exciting and reliable streaming platform. The first MLW event on FITE+ will be Never Say Never ‘23 on July 8th, live from Philadelphia.

“To have MLW’s premium live events available – for no extra cost – on FITE+ gives fans maximum quality and value, which is what we’re both about,” said MLW Founder and CEO Court Bauer. “We’re going to be an amazing tag team and the winners are the fans.”

MLW features an electrifying mix of world class fighters including MLW World Champion Alex Hammerstone, John Hennigan, Jacob Fatu, Alex Kane and the Bomaye Fight Club, Delmi Exo, “The World’s Greatest Wonder” Microman and more.

If you think about talent like Satoshi Kojima, CM Punk, Terry Funk or even MJF and Tom Lawlor having spent time at MLW, you know you cannot risk missing out on what comes next.”
