Major League Wrestling will be introducing a new championship.

Jim Cornette will be doing a meet and greet before the MLW events in New York City on 4/4 and 4/5 at the Melrose Ballroom in Long Island City, Queens.   Those will be Cornette's only appearances Wrestlemania weekend.

Puma King is done here.  MLW was unhappy with him double booking himself on dates he also had MLW commitments.  He was well liked but the feeling was that it's impossible to push him if they couldn't be assured MLW was going to be his priority on their dates.  King was booked for other shows over the course of Wrestlemania weekend, so that may have been the issue.

Officially added to the Battle Riot match on 4/5 are Barrington Hughes, Hijo del LA Park, Mance Werner.  That match will air on the live special on BeIn Sports that evening.

Salina de la Renta, who works in the office beyond her on screen roles, is working as a liaison with Mexican talent and was recently in Mexico for meetings. 

George Carroll, formerly with Ring of Honor and New Japan, has been hired here as senior coordinator.

The promotion has been working on several international deals of late.

MLW will be releasing the first CONTRA Unit t-shirts.  The company is thrilled with how well received the unit has become.  It's been noted that the unit are picking up independent bookings left and right since debuting on TV.  They will also be working in Mexico soon.

The company will be releasing LA Park shirts and doing additional merchandising going forward.  Park has become one of the top draws for the company's live events.
