Major League Wrestling (MLW) have today confirmed that they’ve reached an agreement to form a strategic partnership with the International Wrestling Association of Puerto Rico.
Founded in 1999, IWA Puerto Rico features the likes of Savio Vega, Manny Ferno, Los Fujitivos and some of the island’s top-ranked wrestlers. Meanwhile, it’s stated in a press release that a first step will be the addition of select IWA Puerto Rico wrestlers in MLW, as well as MLW athletes showcased in Puerto Rico.
MLW states that the partnership between the two organisations continues the league’s aim to create a unified global system to help introduce the sport to new markets, exchange and pool talent, collaborate on content and develop opportunities for fans, athletes and the sport. MLW state that their mission is to present dream matches, easily accessible high-quality content and advancements in the sport while collectively growing partners’ international footprint around the world through these efforts.
MLW CEO and Founder Court Bauer comments:
“We will share resources with the aim of helping each other on the fight and business sides of our two leagues. Our goal is to promote the sport and help athletes and fans live their dreams with big fights in both organizations and collectively grow the global awareness of MLW and AAA.”
The agreement comes as MLW’s Richard Holliday enjoys a controversial reign as the IWA Caribbean Heavyweight Champion.
