Promotions outside of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) continue to align up to create bigger shows for the fans and more, high-profile opportunities for non-WWE talents.
An example of this is evident in the latest announcement made by Major League Wrestling (MLW) CEO Court Bauer late Saturday evening / early Sunday morning on social media.
On his official Twitter feed, the MLW founder posted a graphic that shows the MLW and Dragon Gate logos aligned with text beneath it that reads, “Coming soon.”
Bauer included a caption along with the photo that reads, “The gate to the Americas has been opened.”
In addition to the announcement tease, PostWrestling.com is reporting the following details regarding MLW and Dragon Gate USA partnering up for future joint-business ventures.
“MLW and Dragon Gate had been in talks with the deal signed over the past week with the plan to bring Dragon Gate talent over to the U.S once they complete the process of securing visas for the talent.
“It is not known what the time frame is for the first wave of Dragon Gate talent to appear in the U.S. as the process of securing visas is said to be longer in the current climate. MLW will begin the immigration process immediately.”
