Grappling is about to go primetime on Reelz: the channel has become the official U.S. home of Major League Wrestling. It’s the biggest platform yet for the professional wrestling organization. The weekly block of MLW programing will kick off Feb. 7 at 10 p.m. ET with a new flagship series called MLW Underground Wrestling.
Major League Wrestling is accusing WWE and its CEO Vince McMahon of forcing Tubi to scuttle a streaming deal with MLW in a new lawsuit. The lawsuit, which was filed on Tuesday in California, also goes on to accuse McMahon of intimidating Vice TV, which had a programming deal with MLW, out of airing more content from the upstart wrestling league.
