)-- TVS Global Media, owner of the TVS Television Network and owner of the IWA Wrestling franchise and library, has named long time reality TV producer- director Darren Ewing Executive Director of IWA Wrestling Future Stars – Making the Cut TV show.

In 1976, TVS founded the IWA and became the first company to present pro wrestling on a national basis. Until then, all pro wrestling had been on regional ‘circuits’. The IWA featured the top wrestlers in the business including Mil Mascaras (still the reigning IWA Heavyweight Champion), Rip Hawk, Ernie Ladd, Tex MacKenzie, Dino Bravo and Gino Brito, The Mighty Igor, Ivan Koloff, and Hacksaw Reynolds.
IWA Wrestling Future Stars - Making the Cut will be produced by Chad Solocovitch and will consist of wrestling hopefuls competing for prize money and an IWA contract.
Among the WWE stars from the Darren Ewing tenure at Tough Enough were Kurt Angle and Mick Foley.
IWA Wrestling resumes production in May and will launch in June on cable, broadcast, mobile, and IPTV platforms. The TVS Television network has distributed TV programming since 1961, including NCAA Basketball, NCAA Football Bowl Games, PBS and LPBT Bowling, Boxing, NASCAR and INDY Car Racing, NASL Soccer, and Pro Tennis and Golf.
