NEW YORK — Major League Wrestling (MLW) today announced that it will take the league to a whole new level of action with the launch of MLW pay-per-view broadcasts. MLW: Saturday Night SuperFight, which takes place Saturday, Nov. 2 live from Cicero Stadium, will be the first MLW event available to fight fans on pay-per-view.
“We are very excited to bring MLW fans a new, more intense Major League Wrestling experience by presenting MLW pay-per-view events,” said Court Bauer, MLW CEO and Founder. “We are committed to giving fans new ways to enjoy MLW. We are offering our live events at an affordable price and giving viewers at home the feeling like they’re sitting ringside for every fight.”
Major League Wrestling pay-per-views will be available on all major cable, satellite and telco systems as well digital pay-per-view via iN DEMAND, Vubiquity DIRECTV, DISH and FITE TV.
MLW: Saturday Night SuperFight starts at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST and will be offered in HD for a suggested price of $19.95. The expected runtime for the broadcast is approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes.

Powell’s POV: The addition of FITE TV and the show length are new details since MLW released the news on Friday via Sports Illustrated. I like low pay-per-view price, as hopefully that will make it affordable enough for the existing audience as well as fans looking to sample the product for the first time.
