BILL BEHRENS NWA NEWS & NOTES
Colt Cabana versus Adam Pearce
Seven Levels of Hate
For the NWA World’s Heavyweight Championship
Stage One: May 13, 2012 – NWA Hollywood – Glendale, CA
Colt Cabana beat Adam Pearce Sunday night at the NWA Hollywood TV tapings in Glendale, CA in a first blood match in the first of their best of seven matches series for the NWA heavyweight title. Match No. 2 takes place on 6/8 in Bridgewater, MA for New England Championship Wrestling in a Boston street fight. Match No. 3 will be 7/7 in Hopkins, MN for Steel Domain Wrestling (where both wrestlers worked early in their careers) in an “I quit” match.
Stage Two: June 8, 2012 – New England Championship Wrestling – Bridgewater, MA
The NWA World’s Heavyweight Championship was on the line as Colt Cabana (Champion) faced “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce (Challenger) in a Boston Street Fight. It was clear early on that the ring would not be able to contain this war as the action spilled to the outside and all over the Knights of Columbus. No chair, table, or wall was safe as these two warriors battled to every corner of the building. In the end, a bloodied Pearce fell victim to Cabana’s Billy Goat’s Curse submission hold, and despite not submitting, passed out from the pain and the blood loss, giving Cabana another victory and a 2-0 lead in the best of seven series.
Stage Three: July 7, 2012 – Steel Domain Wrestling – Hopkins, MN
Stage Four: July 21, 2012 – Metro Pro Wrestling – Kansas City, KS
Stage Five (if necessary): August 18, Boston, MA
Stages Six and Seven, if they become necessary, will be announced as scheduled.
Ticket information, stipulation details, and more will be released as it becomes available.

June 30 NWA Anarchy Hostile Environment Report
Meet the new boss of NWA Anarchy…same as the old boss.
The NWA Elite won the 12 man elimination match that headlined Hostile Environment 2012. Per the stipulation of the match, former owner Jerry Palmer is the new general manager. If that wasn’t bad enough, Shadow Jackson, the most beloved babyface in the promotion, is now a card carrying member of the Elite.
The babyfaces won every match except for the one that mattered the most.
Hostile Environment 2012 was about as good a show as it could be under the severe conditions, which will likely go down as being more memorable than the show itself.
After soaring to an all-time record temperature earlier in the day (106 in Atlanta), it was still a scorcher at bell time – easily over 100 degrees in the building.
Attendance was 120, identical to what Anarchy has been drawing at their regular TV tapings. My guess is they would have drawn 50% better under more humane conditions. The fans wilted as the night progressed, and crowd reactions were notably muted in spots.
The big summer show in Cornelia traditionally features the War Games match. Anarchy’s creative team wisely chose a different route this year. A cage match for the heavyweight title (Azrael vs. Shaun Tempers) headlined Hardcore Hell, and they came back with a rematch in the cage in May, so the timing would have been all wrong.
(1) Joey Rhymer & Todd Sexton defeated Brandon Parker & Vandal in 8 minutes. Zach Daniels, who started the match as Rhymer’s partner, blew his knee out on a flip dive. Ref Dee Byers gave the X signal. Bill Behrens and Todd Sexton rushed to ringside to help Zach to the back. The heels beat on little Joey until they made the big screw up. Sexton, lily white body and all, ran out to take the hot tag. He got Vandal and Parker in submissions, but they managed to save each other. Rhymer pulled Vandal out and Sexton superkicked Parker, then gave Rhymer the honor of hitting the swanton bomb to score his first pin in an Anarchy ring. Because the crowd was fresh, the finish got one of the biggest pops of the night.
(2) Anthony Henry defeated Adrian Hawkins to retain the NWA Anarchy Young Lion’s Title in 11:45. This was framed as a battle of submissions – Henry’s cloverleaf vs. Hawkins’ sharpshooter. Hawkins had crowed about being able to submit Henry, and was being a real dick about it, too. The story of the match was each guy trying to soften up the other’s guy leg to set up their submission. Hawkins got the sharpshooter. Henry powered out and reversed into the cloverleaf, but Hawkins made the ropes. Hawkins hit Extreme Makeover (Unprettier) and acted like he had it in the bag. As he casually went for the sharpshooter, Henry hooked him with an inside cradle. The match was fine, although the crowd was pretty quiet. A slower, psychological match like this would have been more effective as a change of pace. Slotting it between the tornado tag and the four-way would have been ideal, because back-to-back, those matches were too similar in nature.
After chasing referee Ken Wallace to the back, Hawkins returned and put Henry in the sharpshooter. The refs surrounded the ring admonishing Hawkins until he gave up the hold. Hawkins gloated about making Henry tap. Evidently there’s more to come from this feud.
(3) Jacob Ashworth & Skirra Corvus defeated CB Gibson & Tommy Daniels in a Texas Tornado match at 10:10. Ashworth and Corvus got off to a strong start but it didn’t last. Their slimy former friends dominated the rest of the way. No shock given where they were going. The odd thing was the heels didn’t need devious tactics to pull it off. They handled the babyfaces straight up. Corvus especially was taking a major beating from Gibson. Corvus kicked out of double team front suplex. They did a tower of doom spot with Corvus taking the big bump. Ashworth made a comeback against both heels. The finish was a double finishers – Ashworh with Ashes to Ashes on Daniels and Corvus with the Graveyard Shift on Gibson for a double pin.
Daniels appeared to have suffered a serious injury and needed legit help getting to the back. Ring announcer Bret Wolverton reminded fans not to try these maneuvers at home.
(4) Seth Delay defeated Mike Posey and Johnny Dangerous and Andrew Pendleton III in a Gold Rush Match at 9:20. The Gold Rush stip earned the winner a shot at any title along with his choice of stipulation. It was every man for himself and all action. Delay was clearly the people’s choice. Dangerous is allegedly a babyface, but he’s not over at all. The match was an excellent showcase for Posey’s formidable skills. Delay connected with the Shawn Michaels top rope elbow on Posey. Dangerous went for a superplex on Delay, but AP3 broke that up, and both babys crashed and burned. Posey and AP3 collided leaving all four down. AP3 hit the Stock Market Crash on Delay, but Posey broke up the pin. Dangerous hit a moonsault on AP 3, but Posey broke that up as well. Posey’s guillotine leg drop on Dangerous was right on the money. Posey paused to direct nasty comments towards Anarchy owner Franklin Dove, who was out watching the match. Delay pulled out his trusty brass knucks and clocked Posey for the 1-2-3.
Delay said he had unfinished business with TV Champion “sister” Bro Newsom. Delay said he wanted Newsom in a ladder match with the knucks hung from the ceiling. First to get them uses them, and you can’t win the title without ‘em. Delay said Newsom’s days of running from The King of TV were over. Delay did his “sexy party” swivel hips dance, which is ridiculously over with the fans. Posey was just coming around from the first knuck shot, so Delay put his lights out with another one before sprinting to the back. Posey had to be carried out. Very entertaining.
Jeff G. Bailey, Jerry Palmer and John Johnson came to the ring. Bailey said Bryan Casanova wasn’t there for the main event because his car had been vandalized. Bailey blamed it on special enforcer Brodie Chase. Bailey said that if Chase had any common decency, he would drop one guy from Team Anarchy to make it five on five. Chase said the Elite made the stipulation and wasn’t about to let them off the hook. They had two options – forfeit or pick another guy, and they had 30 second to decide. Palmer announced that Johnson was their pick. Chase cackled at the idea. Bailey said Johnson was the size of three Slim J’s. Chase said Johnson may have eaten three Slim Jim’s before the show. Johnson looked none too happy about the situation.
(5) Billy Buck defeated Bobby Moore in a Bunkhouse Match at 20:25. Violent with a capital V. The crowd was more alive for this match, which was a wild, weapons-filled brawl. Moore tried to smother Buck with one of the dreaded Barney dolls that fans have been torturing him with for months. Buck repeatedly bashed Moore in the head with the metal trash can. Moore bled bigtime. Moore blocked the superkick and took over. Moore was a mess. He gave Buck the Raven drop toehold onto a chair, and waffled his back with it. Moore taped Buck to the ropes and beat the crap out of him with an extra helping of verbal abuse. Moore looked like he was having a psychotic episode. He drew an X on Buck’s forehead with his blood, and was ready to split Buck’s wig with the chair, but Buck kicked him in the nuts. Buck got free and ran wild. Moore was bumping like a pinball wizard for Buck’s punches. The kids chanted for Billy. Moore went down after taking running headfirst into a wedged chair. Buck set up a table in the ring, but took too much time. Moore hammered Buck with stiff forearms to the base of the skull. Moore started talking to the Barney doll, saying it caused him nothing but trouble. Moore climbed a 10 foot ladder with Buck right behind him. Thank God referee Wallace had the presence of mind to stabilize the ladder. In the death defying spot of the night, Buck put Moore through the table with a Samoan Drop off the ladder. Neither guy was moving a muscle. Buck made an agonizing one-armed cover and Moore kicked out. Moore’s body was quivering. Buck superkicked Moore. It was sweet chin music indeed. Moore took a desperation swing with the Barney doll. Buck ducked and hit Moore with Barney for the pin. It looked dumb….until Buck pulled out the rock that Moore had stuffed inside Barney. They pulled out all the stops. It was a sick match and way, way better than what I imagined it would be.
(6) The NWA Elite (Se7en & Shaun Tempers & Bro Newsom & Jacoby Boykins & Jagged Edge & John Johnson with Jeff G. Bailey & Jerry Palmer) defeated Team NWA Anarchy (Mikal Judas & Dany Only & Stryknyn & Azrael & Slim J & Nemesis with The Rev & Brodie Chase) in an elimination match in 29:45. Stryknyn had his eye bandaged from a fireball he took the night before at APW. Just like 3 weeks ago, Azrael and Nemesis lit Tempers up with chops. It was all Team Anarchy until Newsom went after Stryk’s eye. Only took over for his Hate Junkie partner and abused Tempers some more. The momentum turned when Tempers caught Only with the Tiger Driver. The monster Se7en tagged in. Only’s offense barely made a dent. Se7en bludgeoned the hell out of Only and pinned him with a choke bomb at the 10 minute mark. Johnson waited until J was in a bad way to tag in. Johnson pulled the straps down on his singlet, exposing his hideous rolls of flesh to the world. J put Johnson in a submission and he tapped in a heartbeat. Hey, a little comedy relief never hurts. Azrael used a cutthroat piledriver to eliminate Newsom. Nemesis and Azrael rained more chops on poor Tempers, but he managed to roll Nemesis up using the tights. Jagged Edge eliminated Stryknyn with a massive chokeslam. Boykins challenged Judas to bull of the woods contest. Boykins managed to put Judas down, but Judas leveled Boykins with a big boot and pinned with a top rope leg drop. Seeing a guy that stands 6-7 cover ¾ of the ring on the fly is enough to take your breath away. Edge squared off with Judas for the first time, and battled him on even terms. There was a glitch where Edge was supposed to spill over the top rope and it didn’t happen, but Judas go things back on track and it was good stuff. They battled outside the ring until both were counted out. Azrael nailed Se7en with the superman punch to take him out of the match, but Tempers immediately hit the hangman neckbreaker on Azrael to eliminate his arch rival. It was down to Slim and Tempers. Slim ran off a string of near falls on the champion. Slim kicked out of hangman neckbreaker of the ropes. Tempers was in shock. Tempers kicked out a double underhook piledriver. Slim went for Screwdriver on the Rocks. Tempers countered with the cobra clutch, but couldn’t put Slim away. Slim hit Screwdriver on the Rocks, but referee Dee Byers got decked in the process. Palmer blinded Chase with the powder and got in the ring with his trusty axhandle. The light went out….Lights on, Shadow Jackson was in the ring, and the crowd exploded. Jackson had been out of action after taking a beating from the Elite. Palmer backed off. Jackson turned and gave Slim a stunner. Tempers covered J, and ringside referee Brent Wiley (who had turned a blind eye to all of the Eite’s crap) jumped in to make the three count. The booking of the match covered a whole lot of bases, and covered them well. The crowd would have been going nuts for it if they weren’t drained by the sweltering heat.
Nemesis hit the ring to confront Jackson. At least it started out that way. Nemesis decked Chase and Urban Assault Squad is now part of NWA Elite. They celebrated by beating Chase down. “I am back and you’re welcome,” said Palmer. Azrael and Judas came out to tend to Chase and J. Palmer said if they laid a hand on any of the Elite, they would be suspended forever. Judas glared at Palmer. If looks could kill Palmer would be a dead man.

June 29 NWA APW Report from Royston, GA
From Jonathan Feltner:
First of all, I want to clear up my typing error from last week. Dustin Knight was Shadow Jackson’s partner on the Untouchable Talent Tag Team Tournament final. For some crazy reason, I failed to put him in it. I do apologize. As for this week…
The night started off with Yasir Akbar taking my introduction of the show hostage. Akbar said 4th of July was coming up and that it may mean freedom to Americans, but it was just a bad reminder of September 11, 2001 and how he and his people were being treated. Akbar moved on to Freedom Fight 2012 and how the APW Arena fans cheered for an old fossil like Ricky Morton, and how he was better than Morton ever thought about being. Enter Shadow Jackson to tell Akbar that he had no right talking about a legend like Morton, who wasn’t just a former 5-time tag champion of Georgia, or any other state, but the entire world. Shadow began to pursue Akbar telling him he was going to whip his you-know-what, when from behind, Brandon Parker hit Shadow in his previously injured knee. Parker and Akbar beat Jackson down, however, Jackson left under his own power, calling Parker and Akbar cowards.
JC Walker defeated Kevin Blue by pinfall in 5:42.
APW Tag Team Champions Revolution & Ballenger defeated Just 2 Dudes (Jamie Cruz & Chris Spectra) by pinfall in 7:50. Post match, Heavy Metal (Shane Hexxon & Cali Cannon) came to ring to congratulate their fellow Heavy Metal members, and to tell them that they should wear the belts with pride, because at Freedom Fight, it would be them they were facing for the titles. Enter JT Talent. He said it wouldn’t be Hexxon and Cannon that the champions would be facing, because Untouchable Talent were scheduled for a rematch. Hexxon then reminded Talent it was his fault that they lost the belts in the first place. Talent reassured Hexxon that what happened last week was purely an accident and that Vain would be there to back him up. Hexxon then tried to attack Talent.. Talent retaliated and said Vain may not be there, but he was ready to fight.
JT Talent defeated Shane Hexon by disqualification due to interference by Cannon.
Post match, Hexxon and Cannon began to beat on Talent. Vain came down and cleared Heavy Metal out of the ring. Vain helped Talent up but left with a more than disgusted look on his face. Talent was perplexed by Vain’s attitude.
Anthony Henry talked about how he and Stryknyn have had match after match, spilling blood, and how at Freedom Fight, it would come full circle. Henry said he would emerge as the winner just like last year. Stryknyn came out and said that even though the fans didn’t know it, he already knew last year how much of jerk Henry really was. Stryknyn said it was around this time last year that Henry injured his eye with a fireball. They went back and forth about leaving Freedom Fight as the NWA Southern States Champion.
NWA North Georgia Champion James Boulevard & Skirra Corus defeated Gavin Cross by pinfall in 9:34. Before the match started, Boulevard told Corvus that because he cost him a match with Delay last week, he was now going to have to defend his title against Delay on July 6, so Corvus was to wrestle the match for him tonight. Corvus was about to deliver the curbstomp when Boulevard grabbed the mic and said he had the power to stop any of Corvus’ matches at any time, and he was stopping this one right now. Boulevard told Corvus he was fired. Corvus left the ring dejected. Boulevard easily defeated the already beaten Cross.
Jacoby Boykins & Anthony Henry & Scott Mayson defeated Dustin Knight & Kameron Kade & Eli Evans by pinfall in 10:23.
Cali Cannon defeated Jeremy Vain by disqualification in 6:34. Hexxon came down to interfere and Talent came to Vain’s rescue, but the ref disqualified Vain because Talent was the first to get physical. Vain got upset. He sneaked up behind Talent as if he was going to attack him, but when Talent turned around, Vain just gave him an evil grin and exited the ring.
Brandon Parker & Yassir Akbar defeated Shadow Jackson & NWA Southern States Champion Stryknyne by countout. Jackson’ partner wasn’t known until time for the match. The finish saw Parker distract Jackson, who was the legal man at the time, causing Dee Byers to count him out. While Stryknyn was arguing with the ref, Henry hit the ring and threw a fireball in his face. Stryknyn went down screaming in agony. All of the babyface ran out to aid Stryknyn, who was carried to the back.
Freedom Fight July 27th

EWF brings the action live with iPPV and ON-Demand products
Empire Wrestling Federation of San Bernardino, the longest running independent professional wrestling promotion in southern California is launching a new avenue for which EWF fans can view the high-impact shows they might not be able to attend, every month. Starting with the XVI Anniversary Extravaganza hosted on May 4, EWF will be streaming multiple shows on iPPV for fans to view at their convenience, for a charge of $5. With this venture, EWF hopes to continue the years of success and tradition as it is known for throughout the southern California region, but also nationally. Currently the EWF roster carries 30 single wrestlers, six tag teams and six women wrestlers. Their events are hosted every month in Covina, CA at the Knights of Columbus and in San Bernardino, CA.
“We are very enthusiastic about the venture we’re entering with iPPV and ON-Demand,” EWF owner and founder, Jesse Hernandez said. “This is going to give all of the guys and gals in the back so much more exposure they could imagine and the fans that are no longer local, can still enjoy the EWF from wherever they are.”
EWF’s former wrestlers such as Melina Perez, Rico Constantino were signed with WWE for several years. Talent such as TJ Perkins and Christopher Daniels, who’ve graced the canvas of Ring Of Honor and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling are also EWF veterans.
