DAZN’s streaming service hosts Boxing, Bellator and Futbol content. Both F4WOnline and PWInsider provided additional details about the deal and per F4WOnline, the amount of years on the deal and the financials have not been disclosed. Episodes of MLW Fusion and the recent Opera Cup event went up on DAZN today. MLW will be a part of the weekly schedule and their live shows will stream on DAZN as well.
PWInsider was informed that the DAZN deal is not a replacement for beIN SPORTS. MLW has also had talks with ESPN dating back to early 2020 about MLW content streaming on their platform. Once ESPN began airing WWE content leading up to WrestleMania 36, the conversations between MLW and ESPN slowed down.
Court Bauer did an interview with MLW.com about the state of the organization with the COVID-19 pandemic going on and Bauer said that MLW has enough content to carry them into mid-2021.
