Dave Prazak joins MLW, will spearhead women's division launch


MLW is launching a new women's division this summer.

MLW announced on Wednesday that SHIMMER promoter Dave Prazak has joined their office of wrestling operations. Prazak will be spearheading the launch of MLW's women's division.

Prazak founded women's wrestling promotion SHIMMER in 2005.

“During my twenty-five years working in the sport thus far, I’ve had the opportunity to serve in a number of different capacities, for many companies which have focused on different types of professional wrestling," Prazak said.

“It is that variety of styles, and the right mix of different elements which makes me most excited to join the team at Major League Wrestling. I’ve loved the way that MLW has provided its audience with a roster of amazing talent from around world, and I look forward to offering my own contributions to the company going forward. Having focused greatly on the promotion of women’s wrestling over the years, I value the chance to assist some very deserving SHIMMER athletes in receiving opportunities to grow by entering the MLW ranks. The addition of more women to MLW events in the future will only add to the wonderful variety already featured as part of the MLW product.”

MLW previously attempted to launch a women's division in fall 2019.

A new season for MLW will kick off at their Battle Riot tapings this Saturday. The tapings are being held at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and will be headlined by the 40-man Battle Riot match.
