David Dexter reports on a recent NWA Champion Rob Conway interview, where Conway discussed being the champion, his lack of push in WWE and more….
On Being the NWA Champion: “It brings a smile to my face just hearing it. Guys I grew up watching and knowing the history of the NWA, a lot of pride goes into just hearing those words. It is like having an action figure, being a champion, being an NWA World Champion. It almost feels like it is happening to someone else. I’m just a guy from New Albany, Indiana who has worked real hard. A lot of things have happened that I never would have dreamed would have ever happened in real life.”
David Dexter reports that NWA World Heavyweight champion Rob Conway had an interview with the PW Torch Livecast where he revealed that he had been offered a deal to return to the WWE.
“They talked to me about becoming a trainer and moving down to Florida and training the new guys and not really traveling on the road or being on television. We never really got to the point where we talked money and all that. We just kind of talked about it. I live in Indiana and the plan is to one day maybe run for mayor here, so for me to move to Florida – at the time, I still have a lot left in my tank to be a wrestler. I still like to wrestle and travel. I’m not ready to start coaching yet.”
Conway’s next match will be a title defense against Chris Masters, who he has never wrestled in a single match before. The match will took place last night in Houston at the “Parade of Champions: Paul Boesch Memorial Show.” The card also included an NWA Tag Title vs. IWGP Tag Title match.
