With TNA iMPACT! having just scored their lowest ratings in their history (with a 0.5), the latest wrestling organization that will try to rival TNA and become the #2 organization in America will be WFX Wrestling with their new weekly show, “WFX OVERLOAD”.
WFX Wrestling just announced that with their latest television deals, they will reach well over 60 million homes throughout the US beginning later this month!
This will shake up the U.S. wrestling scene like never before!
WFX Wrestling boasts many superstars on their roster such as Mr. PEC-Tacular Jessie Godderz from CBS’ Big Brother, Christopher Daniels, Charlie Haas, KIP (formerly known as Billy Gunn), U-Gene Dinsmore, Jonny Fairplay, Hardcore Holly, Tajiri, Bushwacker Luke, Sabu, Gangrel, and “The Living Legend” Larry Zbyszko.
Other superstars that are rumored on their way in include Shelton Benjamin, Buff Bagwell, Sid Vicious, Trevor Murdoch and Lance Cade.
The surprising news is that ever since they signed Mr. PEC-Tacular Jessie Godderz as a Headliner back in March, WFX’s mainstream popularity has substantially increased and that looks to be the primary impetus for their latest television exposure.
Mr. PEC-tacular starred on CBS’ Big Brother the last two years (averaging anywhere from 6 -10 million viewers per episode), and he has also been prominently featured numerous times on CBS’ Early Show, CBS’ Late Late Show, MTV, E!’s The Soup, Entertainment Weekly Magazine, PEOPLE Magazine, TV Guide, CBS.com, Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness Magazine, Men’s Exercise, Exercise For Men, and in many other mainstream publications.
That seems to be making a huge difference in how potential television outlets are viewing WFX as opposed to other organizations.
Now, here is all of the info on WFX Wrestling’s next major event called, CODE RED, that takes place this FRIDAY:
