TCW TELEVISION - FAN APPRECIATION WEEK
It's Fan Appreciation Week at TCW Wrestling. We show how much we appreciate the fans by giving them a match with a Hall of Famer and two main event caliber matches!
Hall of Famer Bushwhacker Luke speaks to the TCW fans about respect. And Boyd Bradford shows none toward the legend. Luke faces Roosevelt to open our show.
A Six-Man Elimination Tag Match pits the Empire's Matt Riviera, Golden Boy Greg Anthony and Jon Omari against Sigmon, John Saxon and a wrestler trying to make a name for himself, Barrett Brown.
In our other Main Event, Titan squares off against Carlito, but not until Carlito reminds Lily about what's cool...and what's not cool.
Matt Rhodes and Brian Thompson host, along with broadcast partner Jason Jones.
Features "Blind Faith" by Method of Doubt and "Cornbread" by Frank Ed Thornton - both available for download on iTunes.
Closed Captioning for TCW™ Wrestling is provided by Big River Materials - Go Big, or Go Home!

REALITY TV STAR A HIT ON MILLIONAIRE MATCHMAKER
Reality Star Matt Riviera recently appeared on Bravo's hit television series, Millionaire Matchmaker. Millionaire Matchmaker follows Patti Stanger and her staff as they give their big-bucks clients complete transformations with the help of personal shoppers, date coaches and therapists.
In each episode, two wealthy clients are set up on dates hand-picked by Stanger based upon their beauty and intelligence. "The experience was everything I hoped it would be. Millionaire Matchmaker and the Bravo Network really rolled the red carpet for me." Matt's appearance aired on February 19.
After the show aired and he discussed the aftermath of his dating experience, he says (about host Patti Stanger), "Patti was stunning and I'd like to personally ask her out on a date. She needs a younger man."
Professional wrestler Matt Riviera has lived a lifetime in just a few short years. With an estimated net value of more than $5.5 million, Matt was one of 17 cast members vying for the affection of Megan Hauserman on the VH1 reality series "Megan Wants a Millionaire." It was during this series that Matt demonstrated his unique ability to play to his audience, inspiring and entertaining the VH1 crowd by playing to the very talents he has cultivated for more than five years in the ring.

As part of the fabulous new look of TCWWrestling.com, I get to continue with this column (at least until they kick me off of here)! I do love my job! There is just no other way to put it.
TCW Wrestling is coming to a town near you...you hear that from a lot of different promotions and but in few cases does it really happen. I know that TCW was seen as a "regional" promotion for a long time but that has changed, my friends!
Not only is our live event map expanding, but TCW Television is truly international with the news that we are now on in Kenya! We have joined the lineup of Kenya's K24 and could not be prouder. And in the same paragraph, we announce that we begin on the air in Monroe, Louisiana and Eldorado, Arkansas this weekend on Fox 14. These listings are being added to the 35 million homes that TCW is available in right now.
Speaking of the live event schedule, we have been ALL OVER THE MAP recently as in the span of 16 days we had shows in Springfield, Missouri, Fort Smith, Arkansas and Las Vegas, Nevada. After that, a lot of us old timers needed to rest and recharge, but we are ready for the next TCW Live Event in Meridian, Mississippi at the Frank Cochran Center. We are continuing the promotion of offering a ten percent discount for all tickets purchased through our web site. Tickets for TCW's Mississippi Meltdown are now on sale. The only way to take advantage of the discount is by purchasing them on our tickets page.
Over the next few weeks, you may notice that TCW Television will be getting a bit edgier. This is in response to what you fans have asked for. But we ask a favor of you as well. If the only way you get to see TCW Television is on this page, take time to contact your local TV stations and tell them that you want your TCW Television. We are making inroads back into Arkansas and it won't be long before we show up on your television set in your homes once again. We thank you for all the effort you have put in so far, but the fight is not over yet.
TCW™ Television was called the best independent promotion with the best production values for their television show. That didn't come from me, but from some folks who are well respected in this business. We are thankful for that praise, but even more thankful that the fans of TCW™ have chosen to come along for the ride. It is very obvious from the number of calls on the TCW Hotline, that our fans are the best and aren't shy about giving us praise and suggestions for improvement. Keep the calls coming at (501) 463-4227 because we listen to each and every message you leave. With 2013 firmly entrenched, I can speak for everyone in TCW™ when I say that we appreciate the fans and the folks who have helped make TCW™ what it is now. Just another reason that I LOVE MY JOB!!!!
And as part of my commitment to you, the great TCW Fans, I will be trying to update this column on a more frequent basis going forward. Same with the hotline...(501) 463-4227. Talk to you this Tuesday night on TCW Radio!
