The show was originally booked by Adam Pearce, who was in January 2011 replaced by Joey Ryan. On August 4, 2011, Ryan was relieved of his duties. After Ryan, David Lagana and Joe Franciosi were the bookers until Lagana was hired by TNA in late 2011. Angelo Trinidad joined Franciosi after Lagana's departure and the duo has booked the program since. The show is produced by Mike Coughlin, Peter Hernandez, Andrew Pulido, Stu Stone and Angelo Trinidad.
On August 13, 2013, CWFH moved to the Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, California, with tapings held on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. That same day, Matt Striker joined the announce team and The Grappler made his initial on-camera debut as a manager. On October 22, 2013, nine wrestling promotions created a new wrestling body, the United Wrestling Network.
CWFH announced that on November 3, 2013, the new CWFH, "Open Door Challenge", would begin. A non-televised house show event featuring wrestlers from other promotions being held at the Commerce Casino. The first other promotion wrestler was TNA star Samoa Joe.
On June 15, 2014 CWFH Held their second annual Red Carpet Rumble, which included X-Pac, Matt Hardy, AJ Styles, and Jake the Snake Roberts, among others.
