Here is your Fight Size update for the morning of Mar. 7.
- Eric Bugenhagen performed another encore on last night's episode of NXT. You can view his performance in the video above.
- Jungle Boy paid tribute to his late father, actor Luke Perry.
He was a lot of things to a lot of people. To me, he was always Dad. He loved supported me in everything, and inspired me to be the best that I could possibly be. I’ve learned so much from you, and my heart is broken thinking about everything you won’t be here for. I’ll miss you every day that I walk this earth. I’ll do whatever I can to carry on your legacy and make you proud. I love you Dad.
- Jungle Boy will no longer be appearing at Bar Wrestling in Los Angeles on Mar. 13 or PCW Ultra in Wilmington, California on Mar. 29. Penelope Ford is replacing him at the Bar Wrestling show and will team with Luchasaurus against Taya Valkyrie & PJ Black.
- Championship Wrestling sent out the following press release announcing their television debut in Memphis:
United Wrestling Network is thrilled to announce CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING presented by Pro Shingle! Premiering on Saturday April 6, 2019 at high noon on WLMT-TV/CW30 – catch brand new weekly episodes hosted by Dustin & Maria Starr. CW30 viewers already know Dustin and Maria as the stations hosts “CW30 STARRS”, and now they’ll see them every Saturday afternoon for one full hour of CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING presented by Pro Shingle.
CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING has tremendous support from sponsors including Pro Shingle – a professional roofing company, Sonic Drive-In, Crosstown Dental Group, V3FIGHTS, Platinum Jewelers, Gent’s Formal Wear in Arlington, 745-CASH, Crossroads Arena & more to be announced soon. Please, support our partners if you are a fan of professional wrestling.
“Just like the good ole days, growing up watching Memphis Wrestling – now it’s back! Every Saturday at noon”, said Dustin Starr. “We cannot wait to introduce our brand of CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING to all the great fans in Memphis. Maria and I are so excited to be hosting together! I’ll try to do my very best Lance & Dave impression!”
“Everyone knows that Memphis is the undisputed capitol of professional wrestling and I couldn’t be more excited to be producing this version of Championship Wrestling. Having Maria and Dustin in the studio tossing to the matches allows us a unique opportunity to create relationships with local businesses on the sales front while giving the ‘canned’ show from Los Angeles a local voice. If this model works, we hope to contract with other TV Stations and duplicate the format and in time produce a stand alone, market specific broadcast like our “Championship Wrestling from Arizona” program which airs in all three Arizona television markets.” said United Wrestling Network Executive Producer David Marquez
Tune into CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING presented by Pro Shingle every Saturday at 12PM on CW30 starting April 6. The show will also air on NBC39 for wrestling fans in Jackson, TN.
