According to the press release, REELZ is available in 40 million homes between the various cable systems it is on including DirecTV, DISH Network, and AT&T U-verse.
REELZ has delved into professional wrestling programming in the past including its Celebrity Autopsy series that has produced episodes on Joanie Lauer, Chris Benoit, Andre the Giant, and Eddy Guerrero.
MLW is in the middle of an antitrust lawsuit against WWE over a failed streaming deal involving the promotion and DAZN, which WWE has been accused of blocking according to the lawsuit.
