For some time now Major League Wrestling has been looking for a streaming home. Now, according to PWInsider.com, Amazon and Major League Wrestling are in talks to stream MLW on Amazon Prime.
Amazon has reportedly been working hard to grow its sports lineup. In the United States, NFL football has been Amazon’s big deal. Now Amazon has slowly been reaching even more streaming deals to bring sports to Amazon Prime. The addition of Major League Wrestling will give Amazon even more sports content.
PWInsider has also reported that Amazon may be looking at Major League Wrestling as a way to offset a possible Writers Guild strike. Right now, the Writers Guild who represents writers of many popular shows is getting close to locking out companies like Amazon out over a contract dispute. If that happens, most of the writers working on Amazon Prime shows will no longer be allowed to do so. Content like Major League Wrestling do not rely on the Writers Guild for content creation meaning they could continue to produce new content during a contract fight with the Writers Guild.
Amazon is reportedly in talks to add more sporting events. For now, no deals have been announced, but look for official news from Major League Wrestling to come soon.
