MAJOR LEAGUE WRESTLING TV SERIES MOVING DAY, TIMESLOT

By Mike Johnson on 2019-02-11 15:06:00

Major League Wrestling issued a press release this afternoon announcing that starting this week their weekly series MLW: FUSION will be moving to Saturday evenings on the BeIN Sports Network at 9 PM.  The series had previously been airing Fridays at 8 PM.  With the change, the Spanish language edition of the series will now air Monday evenings on beIN SPORTS en Espanol.

We are told part of the reason for the move is so that MLW can incorporate more live specials and intend to run more on Saturday evenings going forward.  The special from Philadelphia earlier this month being the top rated program on BeIN Sports that day only helped to faciliate the move.

MLW's next live special will be Saturday 3/2 from Chicago.

The official press release reads:

 

For Immediate Release

Fusion moving to Saturday nights on beIN SPORTS
 

NEW YORK - Starting this Saturday February 16th, MLW will move to Saturdays on beIN SPORTS and to Monday nights on the Spanish network, beIN SPORTS en Espanol.

"With the majority of our cards on Saturday nights and beIN interested in doing more live broadcasts in 2019, it made sense to move the show to Saturdays," said MLW CEO Court Bauer.  "Saturday night wrestling has a history dating back decades. It's an honor to bring that tradition back starting this Saturday night on beIN."

Watch MLW Fusion this Saturday at 9pm ET only on beIN SPORTS.
