According to PWinsider.com, Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore has signed a deal to bring regular, weekly content to streaming content provider Twitch. The promotion will be airing live streams of many of their events as well as a regular TV series on Twitch.TV.

The site adds that the deal was actually signed several weeks ago with the plan being to announce it last Monday, but after the tragedy in Las Vegas, Dreamer felt it was disrespectful to announce it and waited a week. Dreamer announced the deal during a live stream press conference that took place during the New York Comic Con several days ago. Dreamer has been waiting for the right platform for the promotion and with the Twitch deal, the plan is to release a weekly House of Hardcore TV show (the day the show will air is still being decided) that will allow HOH to transition to more of a storyline-oriented promotion. They will begin building to the crowning of the first House of Hardcore champions next year.

They will live stream the November 18 Philadelphia, PA return at the 2300 Arena and the December 2 return to Waukesha, Wisconsin. The November 17 Long Island, NY event will be filmed, but will not streamed live.

Dreamer will also be running HOH events more often, including the first-ever HOH event in New Orleans over WrestleMania 34 weekend. That was been something he has always been personally against, but with the Twitch opportunity, he is finally giving in to the annual requests he’s received to have a show that weekend.

The plan is to also sign wrestlers to contracts, not to lock anyone into long-term deals, but to contractually hold them to a series of dates in order to protect the sanctity of the weekly storylines and to ensure that they are able to utilize everyone to their fullest extent.
