-- Joey Ryan issued the following statement today: "On the afternoon of August 4th, I was informed that due to internal conflicts between myself and the company, I was being relieved of my duties as Senior Producer of NWA Championship Wrestling From Hollywood. I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the cast and crew who worked so hard for me during my tenure there. I also wanted to thank the fans because without them, there is no show. Lastly, thank you to the NWA and KDOC-TV Los Angeles for the opportunity they provided me. I was also informed that I would no longer be utilized as talent for the program. I wish everybody remaining there the best of luck and hope you as fans will continue to support the brand. I hope I can count on your continued support for me as well. You can keep up with me by following me on Twitter at twitter.com/JoeyRyanOnline or on Facebook at facebook.com/JoeyRyanOnline and promoters looking for booking info can contact me at [email protected] as well. Thank you, Joey Ryan"
