Championship Wrestling from Hollywood (CWFH) formerly (NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood) is a professional wrestling television program that airs on KDOC-TV Los Angeles & MAVTV in the United States.[1] The series premiere was on September 17, 2010.[2]

History[edit]

CWF Hollywood debuted on MAVTV on May 1, 2013.[3]

The promotion shoots a live TV taping, twice monthly. Starting with the December 4, 2011 taping, the promotion started filming at the Glendale Studios in Glendale, California. Before that, the Regent Showcase Theater in West Hollywood had been their home since November 2010. Previously, the Galaxy Theater in Santa Ana[4] was their home venue. On 12 May 2012, NWA Hollywood ran its first non-TV event in its history, with Scorpio Sky vs. Nick Madrid as it main event.[5]

Promotion President and on-camera interviewer is David Marquez, who has been promoting NWA events for at least 6 years.[6]

The show was originally booked by Adam Pearce, who was in January 2011 replaced by Joey Ryan.[7] On August 4, 2011, Ryan was relieved of his duties.[8] After Ryan, David Lagana and Joe Franciosi were the bookers until Lagana was hired by TNA in late 2011. Angelo Trinidad joined Franciosi after Lagana's departure and the duo has booked the program since. The show is produced by Rod Dovlin, David Marquez, Mike Coughlin and Adam Pearce (credited as A.J. Pearce).[9]

Originally a member of the National Wrestling Alliance, David Marquez announced on September 9, 2012, that the promotion had left NWA.[10]

On August 13, 2013, CWFH moved to the Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, California. Tapings will be held on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. Also on August 13, Matt Striker joined the announce team and The Grappler made his initial on-camera debut as a manager. On October 22, 2013, nine wrestling promotions created a new wrestling body, the United Wrestling Network.[11]

CWFH announced that on November 3, 2013, the new CWFH, "Open Door Challenge", would begin. A non-televised house show event featuring wrestlers from other promotions being held at the Commerce Casino. The first other promotion wrestler was TNA star Samoa Joe.
