HOLLYWOOD, CA (July 11, 2017) – This fall, America’s fastest growing pro wrestling television promotion will celebrate its 7th year of broadcasting with its biggest expansion yet!
On Saturday, October 7th at 7AM (Alaska 6A), Championship Wrestling from Hollywood (CWFH) premieres on 110 of The CW Network’s CW Plus affiliates. Since 2010, CWFH has broadcast more than 350 consecutive weeks of televised pro wrestling and the program has featured the very best talent on the pro wrestling scene, including popular personalities and current WWE Superstars.
“CWFH has come a very long way. Our company has been around for 14 years and we’ve always have had some sort of television presentation, but it wasn’t until KDOC-TV in Los Angeles gave us the chance to shine 7 years ago that we hit our stride. Today, I’m proud to add these new CW Plus television stations to our existing distribution. Over the years we’ve been able to establish a loyal fan base and many of those people live in the areas where we’ll be premiering on Oct. 7th. I’m also excited because of the timing. We’ve been planning our upcoming United Wrestling Network World Championship Tournament and this coverage will help us build anticipation to that event. I’d like to thank everyone for their continued support and to everyone who helped craft this syndication.” said CWFH Executive Producer David Marquez.
