Dave Prazak Signs With MLW To Help Launch Their Women’s Division

Women’s wrestling in 2021 is arguably more popular than it’s ever been. Now Major League Wrestling is getting in on the action by introducing their own women’s division this summer, spearheaded by Dave Prazak.

Prazak founded the all-women’s wrestling promotion SHIMMER back in 2005, a company that was well ahead of the curve when it came to the popularity of women’s wrestling within the industry.

The following is a press release from Major League Wrestling regarding Dave Prazak’s hiring and their newly launched women’s division:

NEW YORK — Major League Wrestling® today announced that Dave Prazak has joined the league’s office of wrestling operations.

Prazak, recognized as one of the foremost promoters of women’s wrestling, will focus on spearheading the launch of MLW’s women’s division, set to premiere 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. 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.”

Prazak, one of the most successful women’s wrestling promoters in American history, founded SHIMMER in November 2005.

Mainly based in the Chicago area, SHIMMER has presented live cards throughout the United States and has been the forerunner in giving women athletes a stage to compete before the world.
