MLW POST-PPV NEWS AND NOTES: AAA AGREEMENT, FORMER MLW CHAMP'S DEAL COMING TO A CLOSE, MLW THANKSGIVING SPECIAL, WHAT PPV BOUT RECEIVED A STANDING OVATION IN THE LOCKER ROOM & MORE

Major League Wrestling's Saturday Night Super Fight PPV is now available for replay buys on all PPV providers and on FITE.TV.  The early word on the PPV is that the numbers were in line with what MLW expected and they will move forward with another PPV next year.  A date and venue for that has not been locked down yet.  FITE was very happy with the numbers.  There is a possibility of doing more than one PPV but that decision won't be made until the final Super Fight PPV numbers are in and the promotion decides its course of action.

During the PPV, MLW announced a partnership with Mexico's AAA.  We are told that Court Bauer and Dorian Rodan have always been on good terms, which opened up the door to discussions.  PWInsider.com can exclusively confirm so MLW has ended their working relationship with The CRASH. 

Tom Lawlor's current MLW deal is coming towards its end.  The two sides are in discussions for a new deal and we are told discussions are going well.

Former WWE Creative Team member and Lucha Underground Co-Executive Producer Chris DeJoseph officially started backstage with MLW at the PPV and was well received.  

MLW will be producing a special Thanksgiving night edition of their FUSION TV series, which will stream exclusively on their YouTube channel at 6 PM EST.  The idea is to make it an annual event that brings pro wrestling back to Thanksgiving night.

There were no major injuries from the Chicago PPV.  Timothy Thatcher was busted open hardway against Tom Lawlor as they were working a snug, tight style. 

When LA Park broke the ring bell over Jacob Fatu's head, it was a legitimate bell, not something that was worked to break.

Teddy Hart and Austin Aries received a locker room standing ovation after their MLW Middleweight Championship bout.

We are told there were several TV executives in attendance at the PPV as MLW is seeking to add additional partnerships beyond BeIN Sports and are in discussions.

Expect a big push for the Injustice stable going forward.

MLW tickets for their 2/29/20 Chicago return go on sale this Thursday 11/14.

The promotion returns to Orlando this Saturday for a TV Taping.  If anyone is attending, PWInsider.com is seeking live reports.
