Willamston, North Carolina – Lou Marconihas defeated Phil “Nitro” Monahan for the NWA National Heavyweight Championship at an NWA Rage event on Saturday.
The rivalry between Marconi and Monahan began in December when Monahan interfered in then-NWA Eastern States Champion Marconi’s defense against the Human Predator, costing Marconi the title. Marconi regained the title in January, but in February during Marconi’s defense against Gideon Malice, Monahan struck again to cost Marconi the Eastern States title for a second time in three months.
“Every day of my life I do what is necessary to be a champion!” Marconi said. “Tonight I just proved that fact!”
Monahan held the National championship since defeating Damien Wayne in Toledo, Ohio on September 14, 2013.
