MLW announced earlier today that they were in negotiations with “one of the preeminent free agents” in the world of professional wrestling. The promotion states that founder Court Bauer was sitting in on these meetings, although a deal has yet to be signed. MLW teases at who the superstar could be, leaving a hint “that the athlete in question fits in with MLW’s ‘rise of the renegades’ era.” See their full press release below.
One of the preeminent free agents in the sport was spotted arriving at MLW’s new headquarters last week for meetings.
A source can confirm key personnel from the office of wrestling operations met with this free agent and that the boss, Court Bauer, sat in on these confidential meetings in New York.
As to who the free agent in question is, well, MLW.com is under a temporary gag order until a deal has been inked. A league official did offer a hint: “The athlete in question fits in with MLW’s ‘rise of the renegades’ era.”
