Bill Behrens NWA Notes for 7/23/07

7/21 NWA Anarchy Report by Larry Goodman

——————————————————————————–

Last night’s NWA Anarchy television taping at the NWA Arena in Cornelia, Ga was one of their best ever.

This was pro wrestling as a legitimate art form.

This was one of those rare nights when every segment met or exceeded expectations and it all meshed, and you had a crowd of 191 that was totally immersed in what they were witnessing.

This was gold. Clearly, a lot of thought went into the booking of this show, and it paid handsome dividends. The new storylines and character twists developed beautifully. The execution in the ring was top notch. And the hard work by the entire crew was there as always.

The company has taken things to a new level. The success of Hostile Environment has injected the entire operation with a boost of confidence.

I seriously doubt there is another indie promotion on the planet that could match Anarchy’s quality and professionalisim with Anarchy’s limited resources. And if there’s a better indie TV wrestling show in the US, I need to see it to believe it.

The show opened with the finish of the Chad Parham/Ace Rockwell NWA Anarchy Heavyweight Title match and postmatch interviews on the the WrestleVision screen It was phenomenal footage. The heat was off the hook. It appeared that Rockwell was done for, but he fought off Parham’s piledriver. Parham taunted him. Again, Parham went for the piledriver, and Rockwell countered with the Aces High to win the title and become the first triple crown winner in NWA Anarchy history. Parham was distraught in defeat. The audio was such that it wasn’t possible to make out what he was saying. Rockwell said Parham was the best wrestler in the locker room, but he had proven that he was the best fighter, and the guy with the most heart.

(1) Kory Chavis (with Jeff G. Bailey & Abomination) defeated Sal Rinauro in 12:18. This was a beautifully constructed match to set up a double turn, and the crowd response was awesome. For the first time in forever, the NWA Elite have taken their focus off of Devil’s Rejects and vice versa. Bailey did mic work glorifying his team. Bailey mentioned he was disappointed that Jeff Lewis didn’t see fit to be there. Bailey pumped up Chavis. “Hatred is purity and weakness is disease.” Rinauro made a serious but babyface-shaded entrance. The crowd was loud and split pretty even. Rinauro used leglocks to force Chavis to the ropes. Rinauro pie-faced him. They traded blows. Chavis got the best of it and connected with a corkscrew dropkick to the mouth. Rinauro kicked out at one. Chavis went on the attack. Rinauro responded by escalating the violence. The crowd got hotter. Chavis converted a Rinauro springboard attempt into the Dark City Bomb for a near fall. “The Soul Assassin” made Rinauro suffer. At 7:20, Rinauro hiptossed Chavis into the turnbuckles for a double down spot. On the comeback, Rinauro hit an enzuirgiri for a two count. Chavis used a Shining Wizard for a near fall. Nice to see that move back in play. They went back and forth with pin attempts. Chavis did a spiral faceplant for a near fall. Rinauro hit the Orton inverted backbreaker, but Bailey put Chavis’ foot over bottom rope. Rinauro spit on Bailey, and Chavis capitalized on the distraction with the Spinesplitta for a great false finish. Rinauro scored with a jawbreaker and a kick in the face. Chavis barely kicked out of it. Moments later, Chavis ended it with the Dark City Street Cutter. Helluva way to start the show. Normally, all the near falls would be overkill for an opener, but it was the only match all night with that type of layout, so it worked just fine.

Following Bailey’s orders, Abomination left Rinauro laying with a Tree Slam from the heavens. The ref crew came out to check on Rinauro’s condition. The crowd popped, as Rinauro slowly struggled to his feet.

Greg Hunter was backstage with NWA Anarchy owner Jerry Palmer discussing the upcoming match between three time former champions Urban Assault Squad and Awesome Attraction for the Anarchy tag team titles. They were interrupted by Hollywood Brunettes, World’s Prettiest Tag Team, and Anger Alliance all claiming to be the rightful number one contenders. Palmer halted the bickering by ordering an 8 man tag. Tony Santarelli showed up to ask Palmer about getting a shot. His couldn’t have picked a worse time. “You just don’t get it,” said Palmer.

(2) Anger Alliance (Brodie Chase & Brandon Phoenix & Adam Roberts & Don Matthews) beat World’s Prettiest Tag Team (Seth Delay & Adrian Hawkins) & Hollywood Brunettes (Andrew Alexander & Kyle Matthews) in 9:56. Brunettes took punishment at the hands of Chase, who was greeted by a chant of “oversized Ric Flair” from the bleachers. World’s Prettiest were the clear fan favorites. They had things going their way until Delay hit a pescado and suffered a beatdown at the hands of the Alliance. Massive heat ensued. Delay survived a ton of near falls, some with the help of his partners. Delay finally scored with a huracanrana and was straining to make the tag when Alexander clubbed Hawkins. Brunettes beat up Hawkins, while Matthews proceeded to decapitate Delay with The Lariat to score the pinfall.

“Manager of Superstars” Al Getz swaggered into the ring to Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” Getz said he had brought a real woman to the NWA Arena, a woman that could beat a man 1-2-3. Getz presented famed fitness model and body builder, Melissa Coates. The smart mark section chanted “she’s a man.” Getz said his open challenge had been accepted by a man making his NWA Anarchy debut. “See if you’re a bigger man than a woman.”

(3) Melissa Coates (with Al Getz) beat Wes Grissom in 5:35. Grissom, whose previous Anarchy appearances were in the role of referee, got a great pop. Coates was very effective here. This was probably the best I’ve seen her offense look. She decimated Grissom with impressive power moves including a sidewalk slam and a standing spinebuster slam. The smart marks switched their chant to “Al’s a woman.” Just when it looked like he was dead meat, Grissom exploded with a satellite headscissors and a picture perfect running SSP for a near fall. The crowd went nuts for it. Coates recovered and deliver a fierce lariat that sent Grissom into orbit. Truly a bump for the ages. Coates then pinned Grissom with a sitout facebuster and did push ups on his lifeless, little body. Todd Sexton came out to check on Grissom. Mega appreciation from the crowd for Grissom’s efforts.

(4) The NWA Anarchy Tag Team Title match between Awesome Attraction (Austin Creed & Hayden Young) (C) and Urban Assault Squad (Shadow Jackson & Nemesis) ended as a double count out (10:43). Attraction got a good pop but it paled in comparison to the one for UAS, who did a fantastic job of telling the story. Jackson wrestled Young cleanly to a standoff. They bumped knuckles. Nemesis tagged in and immediately started throwing punches. Then, he got on Jackson for not doing the same. Nemesis fired his wicked chops and went down after taking one solid punch from Creed. Nice. UAS got heat on Young. Nemesis dropped him on his head with a high angle back suplex, knocking him for a loop. Jackson went 80s style with a kneedrop and a fist drop. Young rallied with a spinning neckbreaker and made the tag. Creed had Jackson set up for the Montefisto, but Nemesis shoved his partner to safety and ended up taking the blow. Jackson nailed Creed with a lariat, caught Young with a sitout chokeslam, and made the tag. But Nemesis got preoccupied yelling at the ref and took a flatliner from Creed. Nemesis capped of a series of dives to the outside with a mad human missile deal that bowled over the other three. Back inside the ring, Jackson pinned Young with a spinebuster slam, but the ref correctly ruled he wasn’t the legal man. Nemesis lost his cool and got counted out with Creed. A look of disgust flashed across Jackson’s face. Jackson signaled to Attraction that UAS came within an inch of taking their titles. The crowd still popped for UAS, albeit at a diminished level, as they were obviously disturbed by Nemesis’ actions.

Intermission. The first half had all the makings of a great hour of wrestling television.

(5) Devil’s Rejects (Azrael & Shaun Tempers & Patrick Bentley with Reverend Dan Wilson & Dominous) beat Caleb Konley & Derrick Driver & Steven Walters in 8:27. Prior to the match, Wilson anointed his newest acolyte, Bentley, with the Staff of Righteousness. Rejects started to give Konley a shellacking. Walters and Driver came to the rescue with stereo dropkicks on Tempers and Azrael, and Konley took out Bentley with a back suplex. No pop for them though. Azrael lit Driver up with chops and no sold his weak nuts. Rejects were grinding on Driver bigtime. Bentley drilled Driver with a multitude of crossface blows and stretched his ass. Azrael made a kneeling one foot cover. Tempers hit a gutbuster the likes of which might have Driver on a liquid diet today. Konley stole the hot tag away from Walters. Konley hit the Homewrecker on Azrael but Tempers saved. Walters finally got in the match and quickly went flying over the top. Tempers and Azrael wasted Konley with a brutal double team. Bentley then pinned Walters with the Dark Driver (Canadian Destroyer).

After the match, Slim J came out and told Bentley they weren’t done yet. “All that’s between us is air and opportunity, Buhhster.” J went one on two against Tempers and Azrael. He was holding his own until the odds were just too much. Rockwell hit the ring to save J. But Bentley broke Wilson’s staff across Rockwell’s knee. Azrael and Tempers left J laying with a sick assisted spike reverse DDT. Palmer and refs came to Rockwell’s aid, a day late and a dollar short. Rockwell was unable to put any weight on the knee as he was being helped him to the back.

Ring announcer Eddie Rich threw it backstage for an update on Rockwell’s condition. Bill Behrens said Rockwell was unavailable because he was being worked on by the trainer. Santarelli showed up again. Behrens read him the riot act. Santarelli said he was just as good as A. J. Styles or Jimmy Rave, so he should get a shot. Behrens told hi to get the hell out of there. Santarelli has camera presence in abundance.

(6) Truitt Fields pinned Jeremy Vain (with Rob Adonis) in 12:08 in a match where Vain’s NWA World Television Title was only on the line for the first 10 minutes. Fields had defeated Adonis at the last taping to get another shot at Vain. Fields was killing Vain with pure power, so he took a TO. While Vain distracted referee Harold James, Adonis leveled Fields with a lariat. Vain took over with Adonis continuing to inject himself into the match. Adonis started giving Vain time calls at the 5 minute mark. Adonis distracted referee Harold James, so Vain could beat Fields up on the floor. Vain countered a backslide with a mule kick to the nutsack. Vain busted out a sweet reverse roll up into a camel clutch. At the 9 minue mark, Fields hit a flying forearm that left both men down. Fields was on fire. He hit a powerslam for a near fall. Adonis interfered to distract Fields, and Vain smoked him with superkick. Fields kicked out the folding press just before the bell. The crowd called for five more minutes. Vain signaled OK as he continued to pound on Fields. This was a bit muddled. The bell never rang for the restart, which flattened the crowd response. Vain hit the VKO and applied a sleeper. Truitt fought up from the bottom and hit the Truitt Slam to score the pin. The crowd popped huge when Eddie Rich announced Fields as the new champion. Then, the bottom dropped out. Rich informed the crowd that the five additional minutes were non-sanctioned, so Vain was free to go merrily on his way with the belt.

(7) Phil Shatter (with Jeff G. Bailey & Abomination) beat Don Juan in 5:22. Bailey noted that this was “Universal Soldier” Shatter’s first Anarchy match since the destruction of Iceberg at Hostile Environment. Bailey made a point of mentioning Lewis’ lack of support again. Hmm. Bailey said it Juan was going to get a dose of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. That was pretty much the size of it. Juan made the long drive from Texas to get the hell beaten out of him and took it like a man. Juan tried to use his quickness, but that just pissed Shatter off. Shatter grounded Juan’s ill-advised aerial maneuvers with a crushing sidewalk slam and a DVD. He kept pulling Juan up at the count of two. Shatter was woozy after absorbing a charging chest bump into the turnbuckles, but that was as close as Juan got to mounting a comeback. Shatter caught Juan with a nasty powerbomb to get the 1-2-3.

(8) Ace Rockwell (with Jerry Palmer) beat Chad Parham to retain the NWA Anarchy Heavyweight Title in 8:10. <B> As if the fans didn’t hate him enough already, Parham came out wearing a Michael Vick jersey. Palmer came to ringside to inform Parham that Rockwell’s knee injury was serious enough that he wasn’t going to allow him to wrestle. Parham threatened legal action. “You signed a contract. That’s my championship.” Rockwell limped out to the ring. Palmer tried to talk him out of it, but that was a waste of words. Rockwell was fighting on one leg. He did a Thesz Press and backdrop but the knee was killing him. Parham zeroed in with a sadistic attack on the injured knee. He removed Rockwell’s boot and protective wrap to inflict more damage. Parham used a spinning toe hold and a trailer hitch type maneuver. Rockwell was screaming bloody murder. At 5:00, Rockwell managed to pull himself up using the ropes. Parham was all icewater in his veins and cut him down with a chop block. The perfect spot to ensure that the crowd was feeling the pain and hopelessness of the champ’s predicatment. Parham applied a figure four and used the ropes for extra leverage, but ref Brent Wiley caught him. Parham reapplied the hold in the center of the ring. Rockwell was in desperate straits, but somehow made it to the ropes. Parham paused to fully express his miserable. lazy, whiny crybaby attitude. When Parham finally got back down to business, Rockwell kicked him off, sending him chest first into the turnbuckles, and rolled him up on the rebound. The building exploded. Parham was grief-stricken.

Iceberg entered the ring for an ominous confrontation with Rockwell, who was still down like a wounded animal. No physical contact. Iceberg grinned and laughed before leaving the ring.

The second hour was every bit as good as the first. Just a terrific show. It was the first time I’ve really had fun at a pro wrestling event since the Benoit tragedy.

NOTES: The 8/4 television taping with feature a Mega Rumble to determine the number one contender for the NWA Anarchy Heavyweight Title…Here’s wishing a speedy recovery to Krazy K (Kirby Mack).

NWA Anarchy
Episode 72
July 16, 2007

There’s nothing like a refreshing vacation in Buffalo, New York and enjoying the cool breezes that blow at night time. Everyone needs to visit the Great Lakes and Niagara Falls. On the news front, NWA Southern Pro announced Chad Parham and Seth Delay for the August 25 show in Tarboro, NC.

WRESTLING: (n.) \’res-ling\ A sport of contest in which two individuals face off in unarmed combat.
ANARCHY: (n.) \an-ar-key\ (1) A state of lawlessness due to absence of authority. (2) A complete lack of order.
What happens when you mix the two together? NWA-Anarchy!

– On last week’s edition of Anarchy TV, Mikki Free bleached Shadow Jackson’s eye, Phil Shatter went ballistic and dumped Truitt Fields as a tag team partner, Delay played shenanigans long enough with the Brunettes to allow Hawkins to eliminate them to become the #1 contenders to the NWA Anarchy Tag Team Titles.

– John Johnson reflects upon Chad Parham wanting to confront Ace Rockwell, but facing and stealing a victory from Patrick Bentley. This week, Delay & Hawkins take on the Awesome Attraction for the NWA Anarchy Tag Titles and Jeff Lewis challenges Ace Rockwell. The question is: what condition is Jeff G Bailey after receiving a devastating Ground Xero splash?

1. Devil’s Rejects (Azreal & Shaun Tempers) vs. Kris King & Amien Rios
THE MATCH: Dan Wilson joins our favorite broadcasting team to deliver his special blend of evil humor. Wilson insults his handpicked announcer Greg Hunter and the Reject’s opponents. I was impressed with Rios when he wrestled Sal Rinauro for another promotion that I won’t mention here and even more impressed with the stiff beating he’s taking tonight. After commercial, King receives the hot tag and eats a dropkick by Azreal. The Rejects concludes the carnage by simultaneously pinning the faces with the Ted Bundy and tigerbomb.
WINNER: The Rejects.
POSTMATCH: Wilson instructs the Rejects to dispose of those disrespectful pukes in the ring. He relishes Bailey’s ultimate humiliation with special thanks to the Ground Xero splash. Wilson promises to kidnap everyone for ransom, including the mayor of Cornelia. Wilson appears to have everything under wraps until Phil Shatter walks out. Shatter might be a fool, but he knows he must go through the Rejects to reach the pinnacle of Anarchy. Wilson accepts the Soldier Boy’s challenge and promises that the “Being of Inconceivable Horror” will slaughter him.
COMMENTS: There’s nothing like a fun squash. With typical Anarchy style booking, Shatter was pushed into a situation where he has opportunity to become a singles star. It is subtle booking like placing emphasis on shooting to become the number one man in Anarchy is what makes for a successful promotion.
RATING: *

– Slim J wonders what Patrick Bentley’s d**n problem is. Slim claims he has lost a ridiculous amount of matches and asks Bentley what is his problem. Bentley can’t answer Slim’s questions regarding his past. So, Slim brags about his past and found professional wrestling to keep himself out of trouble. Slim lists his accomplishments and challenges Bentley to a match.

2. Slim J vs. Patrick Bentley
THE MATCH: Hunter corrects Johnson that the Rejects squash was the opening contest. After commercial, Bentley ducks a roundhouse and lands an enziguri for a two count. Slim catches Bentley heading to La La Land and executes a huge superplex. After recuperating, Slim connects with a float over half nelson DDT for a near fall. Bentley escapes Anger Management and surprises Slim with a victory roll for the victory.
WINNER: Patrick Bentley.
POSTMATCH: Slim is particularly pissed off that Bentley beat him, so he challenges Bentley to a best of 5 series.
COMMENTS: Bentley’s character needed an added extra dimension to push him to the next level and Slim J can do it. Ultimately, this is setting up for Bentley’s heel turn and setting a major feud with Slim. The commercial cut off a portion of the match, but the storyline had its desired effect.
RATING: *½

3. NWA Anarchy Tag Team Titles: Awesome Attraction (ch.) (Austin Creed & Hayden Young) vs. Seth Delay & Adrian Hawkins
THE MATCH: Alejandro has an urgent announcement from CNN Headline News: Amelia Earhart’s crashed airplane and body was found in Creed’s afro. Alright, now that would make Austin Creed at least 80 years old. This would most certainly make Gypsy Joe extremely jealous because he would no longer hold the title of oldest living professional wrestler. In all honesty, Creed has no chance in hell of defeating Joe. I mean, how can you beat a 70 year old man who took a baseball bat to the dome from New Jack? Sigh. I guess you really do learn something new everyday. By the way, don’t forget to check out Alejandro’s new myspace page. Speaking of shout outs, one Mr. John Johnson directs his comments to a certain reviewer who used to be employed in Lawrenceville, Virginia. It is my understanding that this man watches Anarchy over at thesuperstation.net. I tell you, there’s nothing more flattering than having my own ego stroked. After commercial, Delay & Hawkins show total disdain toward Young. Creed receives the hot tag and he displays his pugilistic skills on Delay. Creed nails Delay with the rolling clothesline for a two count. Creed shows off a little too much and Hawkins yanks him down by the ‘Fro. Delay smashes Creed with a chair while Young argues with the referee. Well, this prompts the Brunettes to attack Young and cause Delay & Hawkins the tag titles. Now that was an interesting turn of events.
WINNER: Awesome Attraction retain via DQ.
COMMENTS: Can anyone say three way dance? Again, this match was more about storylines than actual wrestling. Creed has a great physique and could have a great career with more seasoning. Delay’s hilariously devious antics continue to help his persona grow. Was it me, is Hawkins starting to grow under Delay’s wing?
RATING: N/A

4. Ace Rockwell vs. Jeff Lewis w/Abomination
THE MATCH: This is the main event, which is between two former NWA Anarchy TV champions. By the way, Johnson still has no idea about the difference between the FAA and the FCC. Rockwell frustrates Lewis early on by pummeling him with fisticuffs and focusing on his left arm. After commercial, Lewis counters a head scissors attempt with an Eddie Gilbert Hot Shot. Lewis follows Rockwell to the floor and rams his back onto the apron. Lewis follows up with a Tully Blanchard slingshot suplex for a two count. Rockwell escapes a belly to belly superplex and almost wins with a cross bodyblock. After trading two counts, they pull a trick out of Marcus Alexander Bagwell’s book, a double cross bodyblock. Rockwell atomic drops and clotheslines Lewis for a near fall. Lewis counters the Ace’s High with the Final Curtain. Lewis makes the cover, but Rockwell’s leg was underneath the bottom rope. Lewis gives Rockwell valuable time to recoup when he argues with referee Harry Jim. Rockwell takes advantage with a spinebuster for a near fall. Lewis goes to the eyes, but Rockwell has other ideas and counters a second Final Curtain with the Ace’s High for the victory.
WINNER: Ace Rockwell.
POSTMATCH: Azreal & Tempers launch a heinous attack on Lewis. They bury his head on the mat. Abomination heads in to make the save and carries Lewis back to the locker room. With the complete devastation that the Reverend has unleashed upon the NWA Elite, you would think that no one could top the Rejects. Well, you certainly forgot about the most chicken nuts not a very nice person in Anarchy, NWA Anarchy Heavyweight Champion Chad Parham. Parham greets Rockwell on his way back to the locker room. Parham gives Rockwell the Red Carpet treatment by unleashing two nasty piledrivers. Parham decides he wants to permanently injure Rockwell. He sets up the ring stares and piledrives Rockwell straight to Hades on them. Rockwell is going to need more than Tylenol 3 for his achy breaky neck.
COMMENTS: There’s nothing like having both participants getting their carcasses handed to them after a grueling match. So many objectives were accomplished in this match: (1) Lewis was more worried about Jeff G Bailey’s well being than wrestling, (2) Rockwell earning a clean victory over an established name, (3) continuation of the Rejects annihilation of the NWA Elite and (4) setting for the ultimate showdown between Parham and Rockwell. This was a good TV match where both participants understood their rolls and played them perfectly. The payoff to both feuds will have to be huge considering how much time has been devoted to them.
RATING: **¼

– OVERALL: This episode continued to build up several major feuds heading into June’s big show in Gainesville. Hostile Environment is slowly becoming a can’t miss show for an professional wrestling fan. During the show, it seemed like significant points of the matches were cut off by commercial, but that’s just what I saw. It took away from the wrestling, but the most of the postmatch drama made up for it.

NWA WRESTLING LEGENDS FANFEST

Another match just added to the Sunday night wrestling card…
 
NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion Lightning Mike Quackenbush defends his championship against “Technical Perfection” Chad Parham

In case you needed someone to remind you, we’re three weeks away from this year’s NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest in Charlotte, North Carolina. Three huge days of fun for wrestling fans of all ages; Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 10-12, at the Hilton University Place hotel.

The Horsemen Q&A

I’m happy to announce Sunday afternoon’s question-and-answer session will focus on one of the legendary factions in pro wrestling, the Four Horsemen. Our Q&A host Chris Cruise will sit down for a two-hour, no-punches-pulled discussion with original Horsemen Ole Anderson, Tully Blanchard and James J. Dillon, and they’ll be taking questions from fans, as well.

The Featured Guests

In years past, we’ve typically had 30+ featured guests at fanfest weekend, all of whom signed free autographs for fans. This year, that number will be 28, and I’ll tell you why below.

I’ll be honest and tell you all I had intended on our final two guests being The Fabulous Moolah and Mae Young, but that won’t be happening. I’d like to ask each of you to remember “Miss Lillian” (the name I’ve always called Moolah.) She is going through a very difficult time at the moment. Her brother is not doing well and she and her family could definitely use all the prayers we can muster. I spoke with Miss Lillian Wednesday to let her know we’d have her next time, that we all realize family is much more important than wrestling, and she thanked me for that. This is a real special lady that has survived in a male-dominated “sport” for many years. I know she’s tough, and I’m a big fan of her accomplishments. Let’s just please remember her and her family in these tough times.

Remember JJ

Please remember our good friend, James J. Dillon. Some of you may know that JJ’s mother passed away earlier this week in Delaware. JJ is a real special friend and is going through a difficult time. Our prayers are with he and his family. Any of you that would like to send email wishes to JJ, you may do so at [email protected] and I’ll be happy to forward them.

King and Queen

There will be two empty seats at fanfest this year. Literally, there will be two empty chairs on our Autograph Stage for the duration of fanfest weekend. These will honor and show our respect for two previous fanfest guests that have passed recently, “The King” Ernie Ladd and “Queen” Sherri Martel.

These two sweet people are sadly missed, and I’m glad we all had a chance to spend some time with them at last year’s fanfest weekend in Maryland. We all know of their tremendous professional accomplishments and, after spending time with them at previous fanfests, we all know how gentle, sweet and kind they both were as humans. It still saddens me to think they’re no longer with us.

We’ll be collecting notes and letters at fanfest that I’ll personally forward to the King’s and Queen’s families. We’ll never forget them.

Even More Guests

Although there won’t be any more featured guests, there are still a few additional “legends” that will be joining us in Charlotte. Some you’ll know. Some may have been around before you were born. It all adds up to a truly remarkable experience we call fanfest weekend.

If you haven’t made plans to be with us yet, please do so today. Fanfest weekend is like no other. Come relive your childhood memories, and make some new ones. All the info is at http://www.NWALegends.com

I hope you guys are looking forward to this as much as I am!

Please make plans now to be with us for 3 HUGE DAYS celebrating wrestling tradition!

This will make a great summer vacation!

Bryan Danielson has been one of the top stars in indy
wrestling almost since his 1999 debut, and has
competed in numerous indy promotions, holding a number
of different championships over the course of his
career. He is a standout star in the highly acclaimed
Philadelphia-based Ring of Honor (ROH) promotion,
where he is currently locked in a feud with ROH World
Heavyweight Champion Takeshi Morishima. Bryan is a
former ROH World Heavyweight Champion himself, having
won the belt in September 2005 from former WWE star
James (Jamie Noble) Gibson, and held the belt for 15
months before losing it to Homicide in December 2006.
Following is a list of some of the championships that
Bryan Danielson has held:

– All Star Wrestling World Heavy-Middleweight
Championship

– East Coast Wrestling Association Tag Team
Championship (with Low-Ki (Senshi))

– Full Impact Pro Heavyweight Championship

– Memphis Championship Wrestling Heavyweight
Championship
– Memphis Championship Wrestling Southern Tag-Team
Championship (with Spanky (Brian Kendrick))

– NWA Canadian Junior Heavyweight Championship

– NWA Southern Junior Heavyweight Championship

– New Japan Pro Wrestling International Wrestling
Grand Prix (IWGP) Tag Team Championship (with Curry
Man (Christopher Daniels))

– Ring of Honor World Heavyweight Championship
– Ring of Honor Pure Heavyweight Championship

– Texas Wrestling Association Tag Team Championship
(with Spanky)

Fergal Devitt may not possess quite the impressive
list of championships held that his opponent Bryan
Danielson does, but he is nonetheless considered to be
a top-level competitor in NWA wrestling circles. A
native of Ireland , Devitt has been wrestling
professionally for seven years and competes mainly in
two UK promotions, NWA UK Hammerlock Wrestling and NWA
Ireland, the later of which he co-founded in 2002.

Devitt has held the NWA British Commonwealth
Heavyweight Championship on two different occasions,
and has made several tours of Japan for prestigious
New Japan Pro Wrestling over the past three years. In
2005 Fergal was invited to train at New Japan’s Los
Angeles training facility, and after impressing the
right people there he moved on to New Japan’s main
training facility in Japan. He graduated from their
Japan training facility in 2006, becoming the first
foreign wrestler in many years to graduate from New
Japan’s facility in Japan .

Brian Danielson and Fergal Devitt have been competing
in the Jack Brisco Bracket of the NWA Reclaiming the
Glory: World Heavyweight Championship Tournament.
Danielson defeated Nelson Creed in the first round
while Devitt defeated Mikey Nicholls. The winner of
the match between Danielson and Devitt at NWA Empire’s
Red, White & Bruised will be the Jack Brisco Bracket
winner, and will move on to the third round of the
tournament, facing the winner of the tournament’s
Harley Race Bracket, “Scrap Iron” Adam Pierce.

Plan to be at NWA Empire’s Red, White & Bruised for
the rare opportunity to see not only two world-class
wrestlers in competition, but to also be a part of
wrestling history as “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson
and Fergal Devitt strive to advance in the tournament
to crown a new NWA World Heavyweight Champion.
