Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE officials are in talks with MLW officials.
WWE does not like the reputation it has of not working with anyone in the modern pro wrestling world so they want to make a deal that would see MLW be what EVOLVE and ECW were for WWE in the past.
The idea is to give some of the NXT talent, who aren’t working, to have some work on TV. There is also the idea of WWE creating their own EVOLVE-like group as a weekly streaming show.
This would also help out alleviating the frustration of so many talents who aren’t being used.
WWE wants to make it look like they are not set in their old ways and uncooperative unlike AEW, who has partnerships with NJPW, Impact Wrestling and AAA.
