Quick Thoughts on Major League Wrestling

Major League Wrestling is a professional wrestling promotion started in 2002 by Count Bauer. These days it features great talent such as Jacob Fatu, LA Park, and Lio Rush. When I tune in to MLW to see these talents clash I am always left with one thought. Why is this so boring?

It was recently reported that MLW is in talks with Discovery for a broadcast deal. This made me ponder one of the great mysteries of wrestling. Why is MLW's product so mind numbingly dull? Honestly I don't have a great answer for you. I tried watching some of their stuff on YouTube again today and got the same feeling I did the previous times I watched MLW.

One aspect that I believe to be a big contributor is that the way they run angles feels so behind the times. At least that's the way it seems to me. Or is it the fairly muted fan reactions they appear to get? Well perhaps the great mystery of MLW will never be solved. If it ever is though I will try and write another blog post!
