UPDATE: It was reported yesterday that Paragon Pro Wrestling informed their locker room that they would be announcing a TV deal with Pop TV, a national cable network that was formerly the TV Guide Network. Between cable and satellite systems, the channel is available in 98 million homes. The official announcement is said to be coming at any time.
At this time the plan for the show is to book a very old school style show, which will be taped on the second Tuesday of every month. The tapings will take place at Samstown in Las Vegas, which had been the home of Future Stars of Wrestling.
ORIGINAL: Paragon Pro Wrestling informed their locker room last night at a TV taping that they would be announcing a TV deal with Pop TV, a national cable network that was formerly the TV Guide Network. Pop TV launched in the summer of 2014. It is available in more than 80 million households and is owned in part by Lion’s Gate and CBS. The promotion has been running out of Las Vegas for a little under one year. While no specific launch date has been announced, word is that the locker room was told that they will debut the new show over the summer.
Former TNA announcer Todd Kenely has been tapped to do the announcing for the show. The promotion has been featuring southern California talent, along with performers such as former TNA star Jesse Sorensen (who is their current champion), former WWE star Gangrel, former WWE Diva and TNA Knockout Lisa Marie Varon (Victoria/Tara) and EVOLVE star Caleb Konley.
The promotion is owned and operated by Jeff Manning, who’s been running the Portland area under the West Coast Wrestling Connection banner for years. Len “The Grappler” Denton serves as the Director of Wrestling Operations and is reportedly booking the promotion. Matt Striker has been working as a producer and director for the promotion.
