Powell’s POV: Based on the press release, this will not be a replay of the Fusion episode that premieres Wednesday night. Rather, it appears that MLW will be airing classic footage, which is a logical way to let new viewers watching via Vice get familiar with the product before presumably shifting to first-run episodes in July. MLW has announced that May 5 will be its “season finale” and the next listed show is July 10 in Philadelphia at 2300 Arena.
