Grant Gordon, sports editor of the Glendale News-Press in Glendale, CA, devoted extensive coverage to NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, writing two stories AND a personal column.
The article starts:
SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — With body slams, suplexes, dropkicks and hurricanranas taking center stage, there are curtains on opposite ends of the Glendale Studios.
On one end, the likes of National Wrestling Alliance world champion “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce, archrival Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana, Shaun Ricker, Scorpio Sky and a parade of other glammed-up gladiators make their way through en route to the squared circle.
“You walk through that curtain, the adrenaline just hits,” Cabana said, “and that’s what takes you through the ride.”
On the opposite end, the likes of Chloe Cosette, Edwin Sanchez and Brandee Garvin emerge into an afternoon of action, drama and hard-hitting theater.
“It’s really fun to watch,” said Cossette, 22 of Arizona. “It’s like a soap opera.
“I like the atmosphere here. The fans are really into it, they’re very loud.”
And on this sleepy Sunday afternoon on Glendale Avenue, the professional wrestlers who burst through one curtain and the frenzied fans who make their way through the other are seemingly equal parts of the experience.
And this is very much the atmosphere and appeal when “NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood” hosts its monthly television tapings at Glendale Studios.
