WWE’s Executive Vice President of Strategy and Global Talent Development Triple H apparently plans to join forces and work with other wrestling promotions, something the company is not a fan of.
Does Triple H plan to work with MLW?
With AEW partnering with other companies like AAA, Impact Wrestling, and NJPW, it seems like WWE doesn’t want to be left behind. However, WWE could finally be starting to change the old perception.
In the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer revealed details of WWE’s conversations with Major League Wrestling (MLW).
WWE is unhappy with the other promotions that perceive them as reluctant to work with them in the ‘world of modern wrestling’. Meltzer added that WWE’s deal with MLW could be similar to what EVOLVE had served or like a ’90s ECW deal. WWE’ Eliminates’ Sasha Banks from Smackdown
WWE aims to use the talents of NXT to work in MLW. If the plan goes well, many fighters would get more exposure on television than on Peacock. He stated that the company also wants to “ease the frustration” of many underutilized fighters.
This is what Meltzer said:
“WWE doesn’t like the reputation that it doesn’t work with anyone in the modern wrestling world. They’re in talks with MLW and they’re going along the lines of the old Evolve deal or, to some extent, the ECW deal of The 90s. The idea is to get some of the development guys who aren’t working on NXT TV to work. “
MLW has been an American national wrestling promotion for several years. It was founded in 2002 by Court Bauer. MLW disbanded in 2004, and after nearly 13 years, the promotion was revived in 2017.

It is also noted that Antocelli also requests first-class airfare, two hotel nights plus all meals, and covered ground transportation.

Does AEW ‘cancel’ the debut of the former WWE champion?

Tony Schiavone on What Happened When with Tony Schiavone recently revealed that Mark Henry’s interview from the latest episode of Dynamite was originally planned for Pay Per View when Mark Henry made his first appearance. However, they had to cut it off because time was running out.
Schiavone also said that he spoke to Henry backstage before leaving and asked if he knew what he was going to say, to which Henry replied “I always know what I’m going to talk about. “
Then when it was time to do the segment, Henry pointed to his watch when he left and did so to tell Schiavone to finish the segment as they were short on time.
Henry will become the color commentator on a new AEW show called Rampage that will air on Friday nights starting August 13.

His next court date is likely August 2, but he has an event that he will be a part of on September 31 at Made In Mexico TakeOver.
Did Roman Reigns inspire Alberto Del Rio’s poster?
A poster of that event has started circulating on Twitter and has caught the attention of fans. They immediately pointed out that the poster had some similarities to the SummerSlam 2019 poster. The Undertaker ‘calls out’ for a major layoff from WWE
