MLW Underground debuted on Reelz, and CEO, founder, and promoter, Court Bauer returns to talk about his promotion’s new TV deal and how it all came together. He’s also shedding light on the antitrust lawsuit he filed against his former employer, WWE, and why this David vs. Goliath battle is so important for the wrestling industry as a whole. And Court shares more stories from his time on the creative team at WWE. He gives a behind-the-scenes look at the big Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio feud that involved Rey Mysterio’s then 8-year-old son Dominik and some of the ideas that Eddie brought to the table. He explains why this particular storyline featured a lot more Eddie on the mic than Eddie in the ring. Court talks Taboo Tuesday, Cyber Monday and discusses what he learned working alongside Dusty Rhodes, Bruce Prichard, Paul Heyman, and Vince McMahon. Plus, he talks about MLW’s luck in signing generational talent like Hammerstone and Jacob Fatu and why he’s so excited for everyone to see the up-and-coming Microman.
