MLW Reportedly Working on Long-Term Plans for an All-Women’s MLW Show
Newsweek held a recent interview with Major League Wrestling owner Court Bauer and one of the topics discussed included the company’s long-term plans for their upcoming Women’s division.
“My goal is to have Major League Women, an entire spin off of MLW, that’s my end goal. There’s Major League Wrestling and then there’s Major League Womens and that’s their own full-hour of programming and they go out and don’t have to share the stage. In terms of programming it’s a different kind of presentation that would be fun to do, so that’s our long-term strategy.”
La Parka Update
As noted before, La Parka suffered a serious neck-related injury at an event for KAOZ Lucha Libre last month in Mexico. La Parka underwent a lengthy neck surgery to relieve pressure in his neck and fix his fractured vertebrae following the event.
Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s Observer Newsletter that La Parka’s son, Karis La Momia Jr., has denied recent reports stating that his father underwent a second neck surgery this past week. The source of those reports was El Hijo del Santo who stated that he had talked to La Parka’s daughter who mentioned a second neck surgery was performed on her father.
