Well this is certainly something. The Wrestling Observer (grain of salt) is reporting that WWE is looking to go through the “forbidden door” and cross-promote with another wrestling company that has TV, specifically MLW.
From the WON:
“We’ll see if this goes somewhere, but WWE doesn’t like the rep that it doesn’t work with anyone in the modern wrestling world. They are in talks with MLW and it’s along the lines of the old EVOLVE deal or to a degree the 90’s ECW deal. The idea is to get some of the developmental guys who aren’t working on NXT television some work.Dave Meltzer, Wrestling Observer via Cageside Seats
MLW just recently announced that Fusion, their flagship TV program, would be shifting to VICE TV as part of a wrestling double-shot with Dark Side of the Ring. The idea of WWE not liking their image is certainly something to keep an eye on as well.
