MLW Owner Court Bauer Comments on Potential of a Wrestling Supershow Being Possible in Future
Fightful held a recent interview with Major League Wrestling owner Court Bauer. One of the topics discussed included Bauer’s thoughts about the potential of a several notable wrestling promotions uniting together to hold a wrestling supershow event being possible in the future.
“Most promoters, in their idealistic way, would like to think that’s possible.
Ego, finishes, logistics, sensitivities get in the way of those things. I, myself, really was an isolated organization domestically by design from 2017 to basically the last few months because when I started out in wrestling, I was broken in by the Samoans, Gary Albright, son-in-law of Afa, got me in. I somehow convinced All Japan, through Gary, to be an American scout for All Japan. I was like a teenager, I don’t know how I conned myself into that, but it worked. In any event, I really loved All Japan. Baba’s way was to be an isolated state. He was kind of on an island to himself. I thought that was interesting. The philosophy was, it’s All Japan first and foremost, and you don’t deal with any of the politics. It’s a big drain, it becomes complicated, it’s a mistake. I kind of practiced that virtually my whole run as a promoter. Internationally, I had great relationships with Dragon Gate, New Japan, NOAH, IWA Puerto Rico, at one point AAA, now CMLL. It’s always been there, but domestically, I just always stayed isolated. My emerging philosophy, as changes are in the wind in MLW, part of that is, I want to change that.
We flirted with that thanks to Conrad Thompson and the Ric Flair retirement show. You had this serendipitous thing where everyone kind of came together for a funky Woodstock in Nashville. It was cool in that you got to see TNA vs. MLW, New Japan on the card, legends on the card, NWA, all these things happening and everything was great. It was like the accidental guinea pig of what could be, and it’s been floating in my mind ever since. Why not? How does that work? As I look to 2024, I think there is opportunity there. You need the other side to come to the table, but the international partners are cool. It’s just, domestically, can that part of the Rubix cube get figured out? From our end, we would welcome those conversations in the event that there is interest on the other side. I can’t read their minds, you don’t know what’s going on. For fans, they are kind of almost there but they’re getting it on a hyper-local level when you see a local independent show and there are guys from MLW at AEW and IMPACT, and they’re kind of wrestling each other, but without the juice, hype, connective storylines that you’d get from all the groups cooperating. It’s kind of happening, you just need to streamline that thing and everyone needs to sit in a room, have a few slices of pizza and some beer and figure this out.”

Kazarian stated “In January I made a difficult, but VERY necessary decision. I decided to bet on myself. It resulted in the most rewarding, successful & overall fun years of my career. I urge all of you who may be in a similar situation that action speaks louder than words. Don’t talk it, walk it.“
In a recent interview with Fightful’s In The Weeds podcast, indie wrestler EFFY gave his thoughts about recent comments he made regarding him turning down an offer from the NWA to work for them. EFFY stated “I understand that for most of my career, I’m going to have to have dweebs as my temporary bosses. I worked for 40 companies last year, a lot of them were fantastic. A few times you’re going, what am I doing with my life? It’s sad to see how bad [Billy Corgan] fucked up a pretty easy silver platter of things. This is a guy who has been on record telling the talent, ‘I picked that girl because she’s really awkward to watch, and that’s what I like about it.’ I’m going, ‘are you purposely trying to make a bad product?’ It’s confusing. Everyone had to stick it to me. ‘Oh, we ruined our TV deal?’ As they were bragging about being unceremoniously slapped on the fucking CW app, which has like 100,000 downloads. Granted, 100,000 is more than has signed up to watch Ring of Honor and it’s behind a pay window. Getting slapped on the CW app is not the same as being a press release announced as being a huge part of the CW’s future expansion and programming like NXT got. Clearly, you guys were put on some sort of a backburner and if you want to brag about that, that’s fine, but this isn’t where the future of wrestling is going to go. This isn’t what’s going to be the big national breakout for NWA. Maybe you guys should focus on trying to have good matches.” (Transcript h/t: Fightful.com)
