David Marquez has announced that he’ll be lessening his role in Championship Wrestling From Hollywood after 17 years to focus more on the United Wrestling Network and other Championship Wrestling programs.
Marquez made the announcement on Twitter where he briefly reflected on his time promoting the brand and announced his successor.
Today I officially hand the Championship Wrestling from Hollywood keys off to Nick Bonanno (sitting across from me in the photo). He the show's new Executive Producer and currently (like right now) supervising the production of the next slate of episodes. For the first time in maybe 17 years, I'm not at one of my TV events by choice. I've given Nick and his team full reign of the broadcast. A little history; Nick came to me as a Referee. Over time he proved his ability to adapt and excel. After a few years, he became our Head Official, TV Editor, Line Producer, Creative Team Member, and now, EP. I'll still be involved in the program of course, but I feel the time is right to allow the next generation to create and tell their stories.
In the meantime, my attention will be on United Wrestling Network Primetime Live and expanding our "Championship Wrestling" television format. Very soon you'll see our Las Vegas version with Future Stars Of Wrestling.
Congratulation to Nick & Co. It's your time!
After 17 years of directly supervising weekly TV Events I’ve found a successor in @NicholasBonanno, the new Executive Producer of @CWFHollywood. You and your team will do great! pic.twitter.com/vhhoRfKIvZ— David Marquez (@CWFHMarquez) October 3, 2020
The brand was once known as NWA Hollywood and played host to the Adam Pearce vs. Colt Cabana rivalry from 10 years ago which would see both men trade NWA Championships in one of the first feuds that was given an amplified viewing and anticipation due to positive buzz on social media.
Marquez is still working with the National Wrestling Alliance all these years later. He acts as an on-screen broadcaster for NWA POWERRR and is helping keep the brand strong through the UWN Primetime Live series.
