TRENTON, N.J. ““ Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) has signed an exclusive agreement with Locomotive Vision for worldwide release of its DVD titles.
“Locomotive is extremely excited to be working with CZW Wrestling,” said US Managing Director for Locomotive Tom “Smitty” Smith. “Their rapidly growing popularity and rabid fan base makes this a very attractive partnership. Now entering their ninth year, CZW has shown that they have what it takes to succeed in the ultra-competitive world of sports entertainment. We are looking forward to utilizing our strengths to maximize the presence and sales of CZW Wrestling video at all levels and further increase their position as a premiere wrestling division.”
“It’s exciting to know that Locomotive is planning to really get behind CZW and help push the company to the next level,” said CZW founder John Zand ig. “This deal will enable us to reach many more fans throughout the country and around the world. It will help CZW grow as a whole. As DVDs sell, we will increase our market which, in turn, will allow us to expand our live events. We’re thrilled to know that Locomotive is as excited to work with us as we are with them.” The first title will be available in all DVD retail outlets by this summer.
CZW was founded in 1999. The company originally built its reputation on a strong roster of homegrown talent, many of whom were culled from its own wrestling school, and a “hardcore” reputation. Shedding some of the hardcore in favor of a balanced mix of high-flying action, technical wrestling, and its tried and true hardcore style, CZW has earned itself a reputation as one of the top independent wrestling organizations in the world.
