Major League Wrestling told Sports Illustrated that they will hold their first pay-per-view event later this year. MLW SuperFight will be held on Saturday, November 2 in Chicago, Illinois at Cicero Stadium and will be available via all cable and satellite services. “This is a chance for MLW to make a statement,” MLW CEO Court Bauer told SI.com. “We want to give value to our fans. That’s why we’re charging only $19.95.”
Powell’s POV: Cool news for MLW. It will be interesting to see how they do in the crowded market. I like the lower cost of the event, as it may entice some to sample the product for the first time. I felt MLW did its best work in building up the last SuperFight event in February, as they created a big event feel for the show that was headlined by Low Ki vs. Tom Lawlor for the MLW Championship.
