MLW Owner Calls Out Promotion Attempting To “Raid” Talent

Major League Wrestling owner Court Bauer has been vocal about companies attempting to get talent from his promotion. Bauer took to Twitter today to state that two attempted talent “raids” happened in days leading into tonight’s MLW live TV debut on beinSports.

Bauer hinted that Ring Of Honor may have been the promotion looking to acquire talent from Major League Wrestling. ROH is trying to get some surprises for their Final Battle pay-per-view tonight in New York, and based on Bauer’s tweet it seems that they tried and failed.

Ring of Honor recently signed Brody King and PCO to exclusive deals, and both wrestlers pulled out of this weekend’s MLW shows due to the signings.

Court Bauer, who is a former WWE creative writer spoke recently on WWE setting up a meeting with Ultimo Ninja and Garza Jr. this past spring while they were working with MLW. Both were allegedly offered deals while the duo was supposed to be doing work for MLW. WWE executives apparently met with them in an Orlando location while the duo was supposed to do pre-tapes.

The on-going war between AEW and WWE took quite the turn Monday night on Twitter.

It all started when CM Punk tagged both Vince McMahon and Tony Khan in a tweet promotion tomorrow night’s episode of WWE Backstage. Khan responded with a tweet taking shots at WWE’s travel issues in Saudi Arabia.

Randy Orton defended WWE , and posted a 2018 article about Tony Khan’s father, lead AEW investor Shahid Khan. The article spoke on Shahid Khan being investigated in the United Kingdom for corruption.

Tony Khan held nothing back in his reply to Orton, speaking on the Viper “grasping for leverage” in tagging him in posts in the past. He was referring to Orton being vocal about being interested in AEW, as well as making cryptic social media posts. Khan seemingly feels Orton did this to get a better deal when re-signing with WWE.

Khan didn’t stop there, he brought up the recent Twitch stream where Randy Orton used the N-word.

Tony Khan stated, “I thought you only tagged me in your posts when you were grasping for leverage. That article’s over a year old + is about baseless claims made about my dad years ago. That’s the best you can do, nothing. Meanwhile in the time since that was written, you used the N word on twitch.”
