MLW issued the following press release to announce that the weekly MLW Fusion television series is moving to Saturday nights on beIN Sports.
NEW YORK – Starting this Saturday February 16th, MLW will move to Saturdays on beIN SPORTS and to Monday nights on the Spanish network, beIN SPORTS en Espanol.
“With the majority of our cards on Saturday nights and beIN interested in doing more live broadcasts in 2019, it made sense to move the show to Saturdays,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “Saturday night wrestling has a history dating back decades. It’s an honor to bring that tradition back starting this Saturday night on beIN.”
Watch MLW Fusion this Saturday at 9pm ET only on beIN SPORTS.
Watch MLW Fusion on beIN SPORTS Saturday nights.
Powell’s POV: The move is logical with Smackdown moving to Friday nights beginning in October. For that matter, Fridays are crowded now with Impact Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and WOW all airing shows that night.
