Major League Wrestling has gotten near-national clearance on the BEin Sports Network for a weekly TV show that will debut this Friday at 9:00 PM.  Anyone with Verizon FIOS, Dish Network, DirecTV, and AT&T Uverse should be able to find it.  You'll have to search to find the channel but I have FIOS and I tracked it down. 

Court Bauer is the promoter, using the same name he used in the early 2000s for another indy he ran.

They got Tony Schiavone as the lead announcer with former WWE D-level announcer Rich Bocchini (Rich Brennan) as his color man. 

Looking at spoilers from TV tapings, it seems like they have a decent roster of top indy talent combined with a few WWE cast-offs and current Lucha Underground stars.  MVP, Jack Hager (Jack Swagger), Low-Ki, ACH, Matt Riddle, Sami Callahan, Simon Grimm (Simon Gotch), Pentagon Dark, Fenix, Santana Garrett, Shane Strickland (Killshot), Jeff Cobb (Matanza Cueto), Fred Yehi, and Joey Janela are all involved. 

In addition, Col. Robert Parker (Robert Fuller) is being used as manager and has a new Stud Stable.

Definitely seems good enough for me check it out and hope for the best.

How old is Robert Fuller now?

I know we have that channel. I don't think it is part of an additional package. Might check it out.

Robert Fuller is 67.    He was only 43 when he debuted that gimmick in WCW.  He's another guy like Johnny Valient who looked like he was in his 60s when he was in his early 40s.

Pretty sure it's Maxwell Jacob Feinstein, at least that's his name on the indy circuit.
