MLW Fightland one-hour special to air on Vice TV

New MLW content will finally be coming to Vice TV as the network will air a one-hour Fightland special, headlined by a title vs. title match between World Champion Jacob Fatu and National Openweight Champion Alexander Hammerstone.

The news was first reported by The Wrap.

Taped the prior Saturday in Philadelphia, the special will air on Thursday, October 7th at 10 PM Eastern following that night's premiere episode of Dark Side of the Ring focusing on Johnny K9, a pro wrestler and the leader of a biker gang.

The special will also feature the four-way Middleweight title match between champion Myron Reed, Aramis, Arez and the debuting Tajiri.

In a quote in the story, MLW founder Court Bauer seemed to indicate the show's format will be different than traditional pro wrestling, saying the show "offers viewers a transparent, unfiltered all access look into the smoke-filled arenas of wrestling. We will present big fights and big stories with investigative reports giving viewers a raw, inside look at the very real world of wrestling.”

MLW and Vice TV announced a deal in April, but this will mark the first new content as part of the agreement. MLW's new Fusion: Alpha show debuts next week on YouTube and BeIn Sports.
