MLW Fusion is a professional wrestling television program produced by Major League Wrestling (MLW) that originally premiered on April 20, 2018 on beIN Sports USA.
In 2020, the series moved to MLW's YouTube channel, with Bein Sports airing replays on Saturday nights. From November 10, 2022, to February 2, 2023, the series would stream on Pro Wrestling TV.
A thirteen-part mini-series, titled MLW Fusion: Alpha (stylized as MLW Fusion: ALPHA), aired from September 22 to December 16, 2021. It would be followed by a second mini-series, MLW Azteca, which aired from Thursday January 6, 2022, to February 3, 2022.
Major League Wrestling announced their partnership with beIN Sports on March 30, 2018, in which the network would air a weekly television series. Subsequently, MLW announced their television tapings would take place at Gilt Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. MLW Fusion would air on Friday nights beginning on April 20, 2018. On September 19, it was announced that MLW signed a deal for the show to be streamed through FITE TV, and to air on beIN Sports in Spanish.
On November 29, it was announced that Fusion would be broadcast live for the first time on its December 14 episode, during MLW's Zero Hour event. Since then the company would continue to air periodic live specials.
In January 2019, Fusion added its first international broadcast partner, EGO TV in Israel. In February 2019, MLW announced that Fusion would be moving from Friday to Saturday nights.
After the conclusion of the MLW vs AAA Super Series on the May 9, 2020 episode, Fusion would go on a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A spinoff series, titled Pulp Fusion, was uploaded weekly on MLW's YouTube channel in the interim beginning on May 29, 2020.
On September 10, MLW announced that Fusion would move to Wednesday nights on fubo Sports Network. On October 10, it was revealed that Fusion would return on November 18 at 7pm EST and new episodes would also premiere on MLW's YouTube channel on the same night. With the move to YouTube and Fubo Sports, Fusion abandoned its original year-round, weekly format; a special "season finale" aired on May 5, 2021.
During the premiere of Battle Riot III on July 24, 2021, MLW announced a new season of Fusion to air on "a new home" in the Fall, and a new, four-part mini-series titled MLW Fusion: Alpha (stylized as MLW Fusion: ALPHA) to lead into the new season. Initially announced to air in August, Fusion: Alpha was later re-announced on September 6, 2021, as "a new season and series from MLW" to premiere on September 22 on MLW's YouTube channel, and would also air on Saturdays and Mondays on Bein Sports. Beginning October 19, 2021, Fusion: Alpha would also stream on FITE TV.
On December 7, MLW announced that the series finale of Fusion: Alpha will air on December 15, 2021, though the final episode would instead air on December 16. MLW also announced a new "anthology mini-series" titled MLW Azteca, which was taped during the MLW Azteca/The Crash show in December 2021. The series premiered on Thursday January 6, 2022 on MLW's YouTube channel and FITE TV, and aired for five episodes.
During the January 27, 2022 episode of MLW Azteca, it was announced that MLW Fusion would return for a new season on February 10. On the June 23 episode, it was announced that the current season would end with the Kings of Colosseum special on July 14, 2022. During the finale, it was announced that Fusion would return for a new season in the Fall.
On October 11, 2022, MLW announced a partnership with streaming platform Pro Wrestling TV (PWTV), bringing the promotion's programming library to the service beginning November 3. The new season of Fusion premiered on PWTV on November 10. On January 20, 2023, MLW announced a broadcast deal with U.S cable channel Reelz to produce a new flagship show titled MLW Underground Wrestling, which premiered on February 7 and featured matches and segments that were originally taped for Fusion. Following its premiere, Bein Sports ceased airing Fusion, and the show's February 9, 2023 episode would be postponed.
On the April 11th episode of Underground Wrestling, it was announced that MLW Fusion would return and would feature the 2023 Super Series. On May 11, MLW's website revealed that the new season of Fusion would premiere on Bein Sports and Bein Sports Xtra in the U.S and Canada, on Friday, May 26. The following day, it would be announced that the season would air first on the MLW YouTube channel, beginning on Thursday, May 25. On May 16, 2023, it was announced that Fusion would also be included with a FITE+ subscription, as part of a larger partnership between MLW and FITE announced on May 2. It would later be announced on May 24, 2023, that MLW Fusion would return to Bein Sports on June 16; airing Fridays on Bein Sports Xtra, and Saturdays on Bein Sports in the U.S and Canada. Fusion would instead return to Bein Sports on Saturday June 24, 2023.
Initially, Fusion had been taped at Gilt Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. In May 2018, MLW announced they would be holding television tapings at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City, New York on July 19, marking the first time tapings were held outside the state of Florida. Subsequent tapings have been held at various venues around the United States.
From Fall 2020 until 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MLW would return to Gilt Nightclub to tape their programming behind closed doors. From July to December 2021, MLW programming was taped at the 2300 Arena from the promotion's home base in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
