Is a New Wrestling Promotion Coming to Las Vegas?


The United Wrestling Network announced last night that Championship Wrestling from Hollywood (CWFH) will be debuting here in Las Vegas this Saturday night at 11PM after Ring of Honor (ROH) on MyLVTV. It begins with Coastline Clash and features David Arquette vs “Professional” Peter Avalon and Royce Isaacs vs Bateman among others. CWFH books several top stars from Future Stars

of Wrestling (FSW)already like Chris Bey, Suede Thompson, Shaggy McLovin (as Sketch), Adriel Noctis, Damian Drake, and the aforementioned Isaacs who was recently Double-Champion while Bey and Suede wore Tag Gold.
What’s the big plan here for UWN Owner David Marquez? Is this just a new market to explore or does UWN have bigger plans in Southern Nevada? Quietly they began Silver State Wrestling which has an Instagram and Twitter account and is profiled as their “newest promotion debuting this summer in Las Vegas.” Are they planning a new promotion here? Rajah News announced they’re holding a second show in town June 29th, and we already have Versus Pro, Big Valley, and very popular Lucha Libre Las Vegas to go with FSW. This wouldn’t be the first time plans for a new promotion haven’t materialized as Championship Wrestling from Louisiana has yet to begin.
 The UWN has a partnership with FSW although outside of talent they do nothing together promotionally, so it’s unclear how deep the relationship actually is. Would it make sense to create competition against yourself, or is it a relationship of smoke, mirrors, and convenience? I reached out to Silver State Wrestling to find out about Live Events and whether or not we can expect any this summer but they have not replied. A source close to the situation indicated to me that nothing is concrete (my words)but that signs point to a whole new promotion in Las Vegas this summer. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
