“Dan the Man! Dan the Man!” fans at the Oceanview Pavilion chant lovingly at the man who has captured their hearts as well as the United Television Championship. That is the one and only Dan Joseph. With a grin on his face, the native of Buffalo, New York, steps into the ring ready to lock horns with anyone looking for a title shot. A True Hollywood Story.
As the first graduate of the United Wrestling Network International WrestleCenter, Dan had big shoes to fill. The rookie joined forces with experienced CWFH wrestler Todd Chandler to form the dance-crazed team Footloose. The duo was popular with fans, but fell short of championship aspirations. After Chandler and Dan parted ways, Joseph was recruited by Coach Flexo to join PAC 3. As a proven super-athlete, Joseph fit in well with Flexo’s team of like-minded jocks Dicky Mayer and Dylan Bostic. The unit was a success, becoming the longest-reigning United World Tag Team Champions at the time. It was obvious that Dan was breakout star of the bunch, now set to prove himself in singles competition.
Following a promising start in the Singles Division, Dan Joseph suffered an injury that sidelined him for many months. Doctors diagnosed him with a torn ACL with partial tears in his meniscus and medial meniscus. Where most wrestlers saw a disadvantage, Dan saw an opportunity. Possesing a talent for providing colorful descriptions of the world around him, Dan Jospeh found a new home at the commentary table. On both Championship Wrestling from Hollywood and Championship Wrestling from Arizona, Joseph made fans hang on his every word thorugh true sports analysis and undeniable charm. Before long, fans clammored for his return to the ring and Dan was happy to oblige.
The surgically repaired Dan Joseph attacked the United Singles Division like a man on fire. He began putting down opponents like Ty Matthews and Ray Rosas on his quest to prove himself as a bonafide commodity in the squared circle. There was one prize that Dan had his eyes on. One that he hadn’t challenged for in nearly five years: the United Television Championship. The man sitting on the television throne was one of the most decorated men in the United Wrestling Network, Royce Isaacs. HollywoodWrestling.com caught up with Dan Joseph to see just how he beat the captain of Jamie Iovine’s Upper Class to become Television Champion.
We can’t believe it and neither can @Yes_that_dan!
AND NEWWWW UNITED TV CHAMPION!

“Well I pinned him is how I became champion,” banters Joseph, “But if you’re asking how I got there, it took everything I had and more. Royce is a big boy and he throws hands as hard as anybody I’ve been in the ring with. I had to dig deep to places I wasn’t sure I had. It took everything in me and more to win the title and that’s what I’ll give every time to keep it.”
The title win was not a fluke victory and holding the United Television Championship is something that Dan takes very seriously. His powerslams will land, even if his puns do not. Dad jokes aside, Dan Joseph is the man to beat on television.
Last week we celebrated 2 years since the superstars of the United Wrestling Network journeyed to Wenzhou, China to take the country by storm. In this first-ever professional wrestling broadcast for American television emanating from the People’s Republic of China, you will see then United World Tag Team Champions Reno SCUM defending against Alex Chamberlain and current Hollywood Heritage Champion WATTS, a competitive Women’s Division Bout pitting Barbi Hayden against the “Killer Bae” Heather Monroe, and Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana challenging the “National Treasure” Nick Aldis for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship. Here is the replay, courtesy of Championship Wrestling Presented by Amarillo Venom:
2019 was a rising year for fan favorite Adrian Quest a.k.a. “Young Fuego.” The fiery competitor with a world of potential had several huge matchups, including facing Bateman in the 2019 PP3 Finals, taking then Heritage Champion “Uptown” Andy Brown to the limit in a breathtaking title bout, and finally capturing the United Television Title only for it to be taken away by Nikko Marquez. Despite his best efforts, frustration bled through and fans began to wonder if Adrian Quest could win the “big one.” On an episode of Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, Quest described that he felt leftover, static, and deserted by people who he thought had his back.
When tasked with choosing a partner to challenge the United World Tag Team Champions, Quest smartly picked one of the most decorated contenders in the United Wrestling Network. “Uptown” Andy Brown is a former Hollywood Heritage Champion, 2018 Red Carpet Rumble Winner, and has competed in more television Main Events in the last eighteen months than any other active member of the roster. With a certifiable ringer in his corner, Adrian set the challenge to the Soul Burners, determined to take their titles by any means necessary. And we mean by any means necessary. What happened next, you’ll have to see to believe.
The newly crowned United World Tag Team Champions have now joined up with Arizona State Champion and 2020 PP3 Cup Bearer Ray Rosas. The trio, collectively going by the moniker “STATIC,” have shown that a change in tune is just what they needed to move their careers forward. But what approach will Quest and Brown take for their upcoming title defenses? Take a look at this comment from STATIC:
After weeks of anticipation, the Percy Pringle III Tournament Finals are here! The PP3 Blockbuster kicked off last weekend, saying farewell to Vermin in the Main Event at the hands of the Wolf Zaddies. This week, viewers will witness the match that gives the event its namesake. For Ray Rosas and Anthony Idol, winning this match will grant them Percy’s Privilege: the ability to have a title match anytime, anywhere, for any championship defended in the United Wrestling Network. Here is a look at the paths that led these men to the Finals, courtesy of Championship Wrestling Presented by West Coast Pro Wrestling:

Last Saturday night, the people of Amarillo, Texas were treated to the premiere edition of Championship Wrestling Presented by Amarillo Venom. For anyone who missed it or lives outside of the “Yellow Rose of Texas,” HollywoodWrestling.com has the exclusive replay, courtesy of the United Wrestling Network. Join host Jon Roberts as he welcomes viewers into week one of the PP3 Blockbuster Event on Championship Wrestling Presented by Amarillo Venom:
The Bay Area of Northern California has a storied history with professional wrestling. Stars like Pat Patterson, Ray Stevens, and “Superstar” Billy Graham were huge box office draws for live events in San Francisco, Oakland, and beyond. Competitors like these men helped bring pro wrestling to television in the Bay Area, but a local wrestling program has not gained momentum in the market in decades. Thanks to West Coast Pro Wrestling, there is finally a localized pro wrestling broadcast on the air in the Bay Area.
Championship Wrestling Presented by West Coast Pro Wrestling is a weekly broadcast airing Saturdays at 1:30AM on ABC7. In order to familiarize new viewers with the action of the United Wrestling Network, the program needed to find hosts who could represent the market while incorporating local events into the hour. “Timeless” Levi Shapiro is a bonafide star and the right man for the job. If you don’t believe us, don’t worry. He’ll tell you himself. Mr. Shapiro is balanced out at the desk by a seasoned broadcaster with a laundry list of accolades. “Bimbo Jimbo” James Kincaid is well established in the Bay Area, having called NBA games for the Golden State Warriors for years. Can Jimbo present the facts for the viewers without sparking the ire of Levi’s colorful analysis? Find out for yourself on the latest episode of Championship Wrestling Presented by West Coast Pro Wrestling, courtesy of the United Wrestling Network:
