Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated revealed that MLW will host its very first pay-per-view event on November 2 in Chicago, IL. Saturday Night SuperFight will hail from the Windy City’s Cicero Stadium, the very same venue that will be hosting this weekend’s Kings Of Colosseum show that has World Heavyweight Champ Tom Lawlor up against CONTRA Unit’s Jacob Fatu in the main event. MLW CEO Court Bauer announced the price for Saturday Night SuperFight will be $19.95 and will be on all cable and dish carriers in the United States and Canada. Bauer also broke the news that all world titles will be on the line. Quotes from the CEO are below:
“This year has been about expanding into live programming,” said Bauer. “The evolution of a promotion is to produce more live content, and another milestone for us is pay-per-view. And now, we’re going to get there with Saturday Night SuperFight on November 2.”
No matches have been announced for the pay per view, but Bauer promised that the card will develop organically throughout the next two months.
“Watch carefully this summer,” said Bauer. “This card isn’t going to be thrown together in late October. All the seeds will be planted. And all of the championships will be on the line.”
“I have a lot of goals for MLW. After hitting live television, we are moving to another goal in pay-per-view,” said Bauer. “And now the onus is on us to deliver something that feels different, especially in such a competitive environment. So we’re going to bring a legitimate superfight to pay-per-view with Saturday Night SuperFight.”
