In today’s news and notes we have information on CZW joining UWN and what it means for CZW talent coming to SoCal and SoCal talent in CZW, PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles, Flamita making a SoCal appearance, and more.
United Wrestling Network, which is the governing body for Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, designed after the old NWA, has announced that CZW has joined the United Wrestling Network. CZW promoter DJ Hyde has been featured on recent CWFH TV shows.
“CZW has been a dominate wrestling promotion for many years and they’re not new to the television game. I know many may think that CZW and Marquez don’t mix, but I assure you they’d be incorrect. For close to a year I have been meeting with CZW management and we both have the same mission and together I believe we’ll achieve those goals starting with their upcoming TV taping.” said acting United President and Championship Wrestling from Hollywood Owner David Marquez.
When asked if this will lead to an increase in CZW talent appearing in SoCal, Dave Marquez stated “It started with [Drew] Gulak and we’ve added DJ Hyde, so it is safe to say you’ll see more talent from them on CWFH and our other participating partner promotions. You will see CWFH regulars in CZW and in the rest of our system“.
“With the combined efforts of Mr. Marquez’s staff and ours, we look forward to bringing a unique product back to television. My belief is that we can make something great. With our combined efforts, we can bring forth a new age of entertainment.” said Combat Zone Wrestling owner, David John Markland (DJ Hyde).
CWFH can be seen weekly on Saturdays at 4:00 pm on KDOC in Los Angeles and at 9:00 pm PST on Youtoo America. it can also be viewed on the Fite TV app. Their next TV taping is this Sunday.
As most people are no doubt aware already, PWG has announced Cody Rhodes for Battle of Los Angeles taking place in September. There could be more names announced in the lead up to their July 29th 13th anniversary show.
Oddity Wrestling Alliance will have Flamita, previously of Dragon Gate and AAA, on their June 25th show in San Diego. He will be facing Aeroboy for the OWA US title. Also announced so far for the show are Donnie Suarez versus Jarek 1:20 and Black Mamba versus Matt Twizted.
On June 18th there will be a free event to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the film Nacho Libre in Los Angeles. This will be a free event that will include a screening of the movie, live lucha libre action from Santino Bros Wrestling Academy, vendors, food, celebrity hosts and more. The film starred Human Tornado as El Snowflake, also I believe Jack Black was in it.
The event will take place at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, which is located at 501 N Main St. in Los Angeles.
