NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — Major League Wrestling (MLW) management Wednesday that they have a new addition to the front office. That person is none other than wrestling veteran Dave Prazak.
Prazak is one of the foremost promoters of women’s wrestling. He will be spearheading the launch of MLW’s women’s division, which is scheduled to premiere later this summer.
“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,” states Prazak.
“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,” Prazak continues. “I’ve loved the way that MLW has provided its audience with a roster of amazing talent from around the 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,” he closes. “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.”
Prazak and SHIMMER
SHIMMER Women’s Professional Wrestling, also known as SHIMMER Women Athletes, was founded by Prazak in November 2005.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SHIMMER has not held shows from their home base in Berwyn, Ill. However, a tweet Tuesday from SHIMMER’s Twitter page states that they are looking at their options in getting back to business later this year.
The last show SHIMMER held during the pandemic was in October 2020 in Indianapolis, SHIMMER 118.
More information about the women’s division will be available soon.
