By Mike Johnson on 2012-08-14 13:00:00
With this weekend's WWE Summerslam PPV in Los Angeles, WWE will be hosting a number of events around the greater Los Angeles area in support of Sunday's PPV at the Staples Center.

WWE will hold Summerslam AXXESS at LA Live over the course of the weekend with signings, photo opportunities, an in-ring event where THQ will announce the official roster for the WWE '13 videogame, a Mattel exhibit showing off WWE action figures, a "Money in the Bank" photo set for fans to take a photo, a WWE Studios "Walk of Fame" exhibit showing off material from past WWE movies, a WWE title belt exhibit and more. WWE is selling tickets via Ticketmaster including a VIP ticket that will include a guaranteed autograph with the top roster names, including CM Punk and John Cena.

On Saturday 8/18, WWE also will hold a free screening of their film "The Day" at Regal Cinemas at LA Live at8:30 PM. Summerslam ticket-holders will get first access to the screening and the first 50 ticket-holders will receive VIP seating. David Otunga and Randy Orton will introduce the film while The Miz will host a post-screening Q&A with actors from the film, including Dominic Monaghan and Ashley Bell.

Meanwhile, NWA Championship from Hollywood will present a live event this Saturday 8/18 in Huntington Beach, CA. Here is the official press release for that event:

NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood in association with Pappy Pineda Promotions presents Live Pro Wrestling on Saturday August 18th, 2012 with an 8:00pm bell time in Huntington Park, CA!

Hi friends, it’s your old pal Joey Ryan here. I know this is short notice, but a few of us at the NWA got together and decided it might be fun to throw a show in Los Angeles the night before SummerSlam is here in LA. Without a formal television taping taking place in August, this will give the regular NWA fans a place to see some of their favorites in action. Plus, it will give some fans that are traveling from out of town for the big WWE show a chance to see some local Los Angeles flavor. On top of all that, it’s only $10 for admission. ONLY $10. $5 if you’re a kid. So come out and support your local wrestling scene or check us out for the first time. Really, we just want an excuse to hang out with each other and you guys and do what we love. Come say hi and share some nachos with us at intermission or after the show. Think of this like a barbeque at the beach but with less sand and more wrestling ring. You can help us out too by sharing this on your Facebooks and Twitters. We already know you’re the best fans in the world, but we’re short on time and could use the help! Thanks!
