"Championship Wrestling from Hollywood" is making a move to national cable and satellite distribution on MAVTV, starting in May. David Marquez, the owner of CWFH, assured fans that the popular show won't change. "I don't want to change anything. I want to put the same show on the air, the same one that's on KDOC," Marquez told SLAM! Wrestling.
The KDOC-TV show, which airs at 1 a.m. locally in Southern California, has developed a following beyond the state since its 2010 debut. That led to the national deal.
"We felt it was time, only because we were getting requests. People said they wanted to see it outside of California," said Marquez. "So I said okay. I knew we could get on with them. I made a call and made a deal."
MAVTV means that "Championship Wrestling from Hollywood" has access to 40 million homes in the United States. It will air on Wednesdays, 6 p.m. ET, and the show will continue on KDOC-TV. What should fans unfamiliar with the product look forward to?
"I think they can expect a fun hour of entertainment, entertaining characters. That's all we ever tried to do," said Marquez.
Talent involved with the promotion include Adam Pearce, Shaun Rickert (who Percy Pringle III managed, and is expected to sign a WWE deal soon), Scorpio Sky, Colt Cabana, and Ryan Taylor ("a controversial type guy who says what he wants, and we try to censor him, but we can't," said Marquez).
