MLW women's division launching next month


MLW has announced when their women's division will be launching.

The division will begin at MLW's Blood & Thunder television tapings in Orlando, Florida on the afternoon of Saturday, November 9. Zeda Zhang will be in the division's first match, though her opponent hasn't been announced.

MLW unveiled Zhang as the first member of their women's division earlier this month. She's signed a "multi-year exclusive contract" with the promotion.

Zhang took part in the first Mae Young Classic and wrestled for NXT prior to being released by WWE in 2018. She previously appeared for MLW after her release from WWE.

MLW initially featured women's matches when it relaunched starting in 2017.

The Blood & Thunder tapings are taking place at GILT Nightclub in Orlando. Davey Boy Smith Jr. vs. Tom Lawlor, Low Ki vs. Timothy Thatcher, and a mystery box battle royal have also been announced for the tapings.

The tapings are being held one week after MLW's first pay-per-view. Cicero Stadium in Cicero, Illinois is hosting Saturday Night SuperFight on November 2.
