Reality of Wrestling
|Formerly||Pro Wrestling Alliance|
Pro Wrestling AllianceEdit
The Pro Wrestling Alliance's first show was held in December 2006. Owner Booker T has stated that the promotion was opened with the intent to give professional wrestlers the opportunity to properly train, as well as to keep the legacy of Paul Boesch's Houston Wrestling alive. The money made at shows is donated to Booker T. Fights For Kids Foundation, which helps kids stay off the streets and shows them the benefits of a better life.
Reality of WrestlingEdit
On March 9, 2012, after seven years as the Pro Wrestling Alliance, the promotion was re-launched as Reality of Wrestling (ROW). The name change was a spontaneous decision of Booker T. In December 2013, the promotion almost closed with Christmas Chaos planned as the last show. However, last minute investors and partners helped the promotion continue to run.
The promotion produces a weekly YouTube show with tapings taking place once monthly at their live events in Clear Lake. ROW later launched a local television program in Houston, Texas that originally aired on KUBE-TV Channel 57 and currently airs on Sunday mornings on KIAH-TV Channel 39. In February 2014, ROW partnered with the Soul of the South Network to air the show in 20 cities. They aired their first internet pay-per-view in July 2014. Episodes are aired on the website fite.tv.
The promotion also includes a school that has a two-year training program for beginning professional wrestlers, as opposed to the more traditional three and six month programs at other schools.
