Major League Wrestling was an American Professional Wrestling promotion based out of Orlando, Florida that existed from 2002-2004. It held its first show, MLW Genesis in Philadelphia and its second, MLW Reload, in New York City, before settling into Florida and doing shows in Orlando, St. Petersburg and Fort Lauderdale. It advertised itself as featuring "hybrid wrestling," combining a variety of different styles. MLW featured a wide-range of talent, from Ring Oldies Terry Funk, Dusty Rhodes, Abdullah the Butcher and Jerry Lawler, to 1990s stars such as the Sandman, Sabu, Chris Candido, Dr. Death Steve Williams, Mikey Whipwreck, Raven, La Parka, Norman Smiley, Mike Awesome, Devon Storm, Steve Corino, Masato Tanaka, Jerry Lynn, and, at the time, stars on the rise such as Christopher Daniels, Samoa Joe and CM Punk. It aired a weekly television show, MLW Underground TV. Unfortunately, the promotion was not financially successful and shut down in 2004.As a note, in re any references to Joey Styles' commentary, do see the Trivia page.As usual, you can find the basics at The Other Wiki.
