Qualified: A CWFH Weekend Preview

As 2018 comes to a close, Championship Wrestling from Hollywood is already looking forward the New Year. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and cuddle up with your favorite blanket as you catch this week’s episode! This edition kicks off with Fidel Bravo stepping into the ring with “Uptown” Andy Brown. Two weeks ago we saw Bravo qualify for the 2019 PP3 Cup Tournament by picking up a win over Vintage Dragon. Andy Brown is focused on his Hollywood Heritage Championship Ladder Match next week at Milestone. Is Fidel getting too big for his chones or will “Uptown” Andy Brown be too distracted thinking about Royce Isaacs to defeat “El Bravo”?

Pinx chokes Andy Brown on the ropes while Bravo has the referee’s attention.

Next we will see a featured Women’s Division matchup as Ayoka Muhara takes on Australian stand out Indi Hartwell. Hartwell recently picked up a sweet win against the confectionary competition of Zaida. As Muhara looks towards her Milestone opponent Heather Monroe, a win on an international star would surely drive home a message to “The Killer Bae.” Will Hartwell continue to live up to her “impressive” moniker or will Ayoka Muhara leave her opponent laying with the Powerslam?

In our Main Event, the next entrant into the 2019 PP3 Cup Tournament will be decided in a Four Way Dance! It will be former Hollywood Heritage Champion Bad Dude Tito versus former United Television Champion BHK versus former CWFH Triple Crown Winner and the first PP3 Cup Bearer Ryan Taylor vs “Young Fuego” Adrian Quest. Quest has the biggest hill to climb in this Main Event, as he must take down a who’s who of Hollywood. Taylor knows the inner workings of Bad Dude Tito and BHK, but could he be too concerned with the disappearance of his partner Tomaste to focus? Is BHK too wrapped up in the investigation of Vermin to capitalize on this opportunity? Will Bad Dude Tito be able to set aside thoughts of NWA gold that await him at Milestone and qualify for a chance at a guaranteed title shot of his choice? Tune in to this week’s edition of Championship Wrestling from Hollywood and find out!

Last Chance: A CWFH Weekend Preview

There’s a lot to be thankful for this week including a brand new episode of Championship Wrestling from Hollywood! We kick off this program with “Young Fuego” Adrian Quest stepping into the ring against New York’s Vinny Pacifico. The big slugger from the Big Apple looks to score a win on one of Hollywood’s brightest stars today. What will happen when East Coast meets Quest Coast?

On this television hour, we will hear from former Hollywood Heritage Champion Bad Dude Tito. Animosity has been running high between the Bad Dude and “Relentless” Douglas James since the Red Carpet Rumble. What will Tito have to say to James when our broadcast correspondents get a word with “The Baddest Dude in Professional Wrestling”?

In our Main Event, it will be Ray Rosas’ last chance at the United Television Championship as he challenges Royce Isaacs. After chasing Scorpio Sky for the first half of 2018, Rosas captured the United Television Title this summer at Coastline Clash. Rosas had several successful defenses before falling victim to a fireball to the face at the hands of Oliver Grimsly at Championship Wrestling from Arizona’s AZ100, which cost him the Championship. Ray’s one-on-one rematch against Grimsly was muddied when Jamie Iovine struck a deal to insert Royce Isaacs into the match as well. Royce was able to capitalize on Rosas’ hard work in the match and got away the new Television Champion. Despite Ray’s best efforts, he keeps coming up short. Never to be discouraged, Ray Rosas asked for one more opportunity at becoming Champion. Ray got what he asked for, but it came with a price. This will be Ray Rosas’ last opportunity at competing for the United Television Championship. Will Rosas pull out all the stops to reclaim the Television Title or will Royce Isaacs silence him once again with Hush Money? Tune in to Championship Wrestling from Hollywood this week and find out!

The Best, The Mack, and The Scum

Coastline Clash is set to shine a spotlight on Championships visiting Hollywood from around the world. In the final stretch before the Blockbuster Event on June 10, let’s take a look at three huge Title matches that have a home in Championship Wrestling From Hollywood.

United Television Championship
Scorpio Sky is the only four time United Television Champion in history. Capturing the title from Rocky Romero at Milestone under questionable circumstances, Sky has had a mark on his fourth Television Title run. The Challenger Ray Rosas has been on a steady climb of momentum leading into this Sunday. After defeating both Watts and Dicky Mayer in a number One Contender’s Match, Rosas has been on a tear of huge wins in Hollywood, including a non-title victory over Scorpio Sky himself. If “The Next Best Thing” Chris Bey doesn’t get involved, we could be looking at a new United Television Champion.

United World Tag Team Championship
Reno Scum defeated the longest reigning Tag Team Champions Pac 3 to win the United World Tag Team Championship. To one-up that accomplishment, Adam Thornstowe and Luster the Legend made the Tag Team titles true World titles by successfully defending their championships in the historic CWFH broadcast from Wenzhou, China. Scum have a tall order in front of them on June 10, because at Coastline Clash they will put their titles on the line in a Four-Team Elimination Match. With teams like the RockNES Monsters, Soul Burners, and The Rancheros all vying for the richest team prize in the United Wrestling Network, Reno Scum’s days as World Tag Team Champions may be numbered.

Hollywood Heritage Championship
“Why Willie why?” wailed fans, aghast at what they saw the day that Willie Mack won the Championship that had always eluded him. Several weeks ago, viewers witnessed the impossible – Willie Mack cheated by putting his legs on the ropes to score a three count on the now former Hollywood Heritage Champion Bad Dude Tito. Tito hasn’t forgotten that and has invoked his rematch clause for a shot at Willie Mack at Coastline Clash. Can Bad Dude Tito contain himself long enough to become a two time Champion or will Willie Mack be bringing the title home safe to South Central Los Angeles?
There is nothing like seeing your favorite Championship Wrestling From Hollywood stars live, so come out to the Oceanview Pavilion on June 10 for Coastline Clash!

CWFH to Host the Silver Spotlight Tournament on May 5

Ryan Morals has made a lot of promises over the last several months. He has kept two of them for sure. The first was usurping Peter Avalon as the Head Matchmaker for Championship Wrestling From Arizona. The second promise Morals has made good on is taking his show on the road. On Saturday, May 5, 2018, the newly renamed Ryan J Morals Championship Wrestling Hour for Good Boys will hold its first ever Silver Spotlight Tournament at the Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, CA. The Silver Spotlight winner will be granted a title shot at any time that he chooses on a future episode of program. With stakes that high, this surely will be a can’t-miss event. Make sure to be at the Oceanview Pavilion on May 5th as The Ryan J Morals Championship Wrestling Hour for Good Boys presents the Silver Spotlight Tournament! Special 5pm belltime.

What happened to Bateman?

Here at Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, one name strikes fear and intimidation into the hearts of competitors from all across the globe. When the bell tolls, that name belongs to the man called Bateman. A man of many monikers, Bateman has spent years cementing his name as one of the deadliest strikers in CWFH history.  With an attack like the Death from Above, it’s not uncommon to see the “Main Man’s” opponents left unconscious in the ring. Despite his aggressive nature, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who would claim that Bateman has ever gone too far. That is until a recent turn of events with Hollywood favorite, Dicky Mayer.

Dicky Mayer has been on a run like no other the last several months from the United Wrestling Network to the world over. In his rookie year, we saw the grappler clad in blue win the PP3 Cup and the United World Tag Team Championships before his mentor Ryan Taylor sent Mayer to the land of the rising sun to further his training. When Mayer returned to CWFH, one thing was certain: He was ready for action and hungry for competition. They say you should be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. Mayer’s call for competition was answered in the form of the Handsome Devil himself, Bateman.
In recent weeks we’ve seen several confrontations between the “King of the Crossroads” and “American Thunder.” No matter what the pairing, the two seem to gravitate towards each other, much to the annoyance of Mr. Bateman. It seems that Dicky has had Bateman’s number on more than one occasion, scoring multiple quick roll up victories on the man with the mustache. Each loss dug further and further under Bateman’s skin until finally driving him over the edge as we saw on a recent episode of the program. The usually calculated Bateman snapped, unleashing a hate-filled barrage of forearms onto the unsuspecting Mayer. The heinous, vicious attack on Dicky left him in a broken pile under the stairs.

Championship Wrestling From Hollywood Minority Owner Nikko Marquez elected to suspend Bateman for 30 days in light of the unsportsman-like conduct. Dicky has been on rest since suffering head trauma at the hands of the “Main Man.” As Bateman prepares to return to Hollywood in the next few weeks, we have to ask ourselves: Was it worth it? How will Dicky respond? What will Nikko Marquez do to keep these men under control?

The weekend is here and it’s time to find peace with a brand new episode of Championship Wrestling From Hollywood! Speaking of peace, the mindful duo of Ryan Taylor and Tomaste are looking to find peace by defeating the team that snuck away with a victory the last time they met: Classic Connection! Buddy Royal and Levi Shapiro step back into the ring intent on stomping out the open-toed technicians and bring yet another victory home for The Office? Who will get their hands raised and jump ahead in the CWFH tag team division?

In our Main Event, a long anticipated matchup for the Hollywood Heritage Championship takes place. In what many consider a match that can only happen in Championship Wrestling From Hollywood, Kevin Condron challenges Bad Dude Tito for the richest prize in the company. Spectators claim that Condron has been handed everything that Tito had to work for, including a shot at the Hollywood Heritage Championship. Will Condron’s mettle prove that a kid from the West Side is truly better than a street fighter from Whittier? Bad Dude Tito puts everything on the line in the Main Event of this week’s Championship Wrestling From Hollywood!

Oliver Grimsly returns April 15

Scorpio Sky can be a tough man to pin down. The United Television Champion has made a habit out of finding excuses not to defend his title as of late. Anything from a painful eyebrow threading to just not feeling like showing up to the building have kept Scorpio Sky out of dodge and have inflamed his contenders. The Television Championship is defended at all United Wrestling Network promotions, so when Sky isn’t even interested in leaving Hollywood, his title contenders are left without the opportunity that they have earned. If Sky won’t come to them, well, they have resolved to go to him. Oliver Grimsly returns to Championship Wrestling From Hollywood on April 15 in search of Scorpio Sky.

“I’ve hurt men worse over smaller things,” screams a tormented Oliver Grimsly while waving a crowbar, “Scorpio Sky has what’s mine and I’m coming to take it away!” Grimsly hasn’t been seen in CWFH since the summer of 2017. He has spent that time away decimating opponents on Championship Wrestling From Arizona with his trusty crowbar, leading to suspensions on more than one occasion. If he isn’t able to take the Television Title away from Scorpio Sky, there very well may be a team of men in white coats coming to take Oliver away.

Oliver won’t be the only man in Hollywood on April 15 with a rightful claim to a shot at the United Television Champion. Viewers will note that Ray Rosas has been chomping at the bit for all of 2018 to get the title match that he earned by beating both Watts and Dicky Mayer. Rosas has been made aware of Grimsly’s presence at the Television Event this Sunday and has personally asked for a match against the “Circus Freak.” If he wants to get to Scorpio Sky, Oliver Grimsly will have to square off with Ray Rosas on April 15. Make sure to be at the Oceanview Pavilion this Sunday to see it live!

Adrian Quest vs. Chris Bey April 15

Championship Wrestling From Hollywood is a place for young talents to make a name for themselves on television. Wrestlers like Peter Avalon and Dicky Mayer (to name a few) began showing their bright young faces on the program years ago only to ascend the ranks through their determination, grit, and chutzpah. On April 15, two of CWFH’s current bright young stars lock horns in an athletic contest that will send a message to the whole roster as Chris Bey steps into the ring against Adrian Quest. But what makes these men the ones to watch?

CWFH newcomer Chris Bey studies under the tree of Scorpio Sky – arguably the most athletic competitor in the United Wrestling Network. Sky’s athleticism has lead him to victories over the best in the world, evidenced by his fourth (and current) reign as United Television Champion. Sky is also a powerful striker, a tactic that Bey is smart to pick up if he wants to pick off his opponents in a timely fashion. If Scorpio Sky’s prowess is any indication of his protege’s skill set, Adrian Quest has his work cut out for him.

Quest on the other hand is no slouch himself. Fans will remember that before being unmasked, Adrian Quest spent the better part of two years wrestling as the luchador Astro Viajero. Wrestling a Lucha Libre style not only makes one quick and athletic, but also instills in its students ways to avoid crucial strikes. As effective as dives and arm drags can be, perhaps Adrian Quest’s most useful skill against Chris Bey will be knowing how and when to evade attacks. Learned from his time spent training and wrestling in Mexico, Quest’s evasive agility will both confuse and wear down any opponent he stands across from. If Chris Bey wants to call himself “The Next Best Thing,” he better not get frustrated by his opponent’s strategy, for Adrian Quest shines brightest when his opponent feels in the dark.

You won’t want to miss a second of action in this one, so make sure to be at the Oceanview Pavilion on April 15 to see it live!

Nick Aldis Defends This Sunday

NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis

The Aldis Crusade – a series of title defenses over the next sixty days – begins this Sunday at Championship Wrestling From Hollywood’s Television Event. For NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis, this schedule of matches with the “Ten Pounds of Gold” on the line will be the defining factor in whether or not he will be talked about among the greats. For this reason, the Champion has set specific parameters for who is able to challenge him for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship.

The seal of the Aldis Crusade

“Every challenger must be a former World Champion or have beaten a World Champion,” says Aldis, dead-set on defeating the best of the best as the Crusade marches on. When HollywoodWrestling.com asked what his reasoning is for demanding such a high caliber of opponents, the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion replied calmly, “Fortune favors the brave.” Listen here for Nick Aldis’ full official address, courtesy of the National Wrestling Alliance:
