In a recent interview with Scott Fishman of WrestlingINC, Major League Wrestling superstar Davey Boy Smith Jr revealed that his current contract with the promotion will expire this December.
“If there was a happy medium where MLW could run shows in an empty arena with no fans and people getting COVID testing, I think that would be the right approach. Unfortunately, they don’t pay talent when they are sitting at home, bored out of their mind, which isn’t good either. My deal is up with them in December, they’ve reached out to me about renewing my deal, the only problem is renewing a deal when you don’t know if the company is running again.
With all due respect and what I think with what is all going on right now, I think what we’re looking at is the new normal for a while for the next year to 18 months. We keep seeing these waves of COVID, so I hope MLW can come back, it would be great for me to fulfill my commitment to them in October and December if they’re back on TV and back rolling.
Unfortunately, due to the circumstances from COVID-19 in their situation, you take a look at these small businesses, they’re all down and not coming back from this. I hope MLW comes back, that would be great, but at the same time I’m unsure about that.”
