As of right now that match shakes up to be “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce taking on the “Living Legend” Larry Zbyszko. Zbysko is a former two time AWA Heavyweight Champion defeating the likes of Jerry Lawler and Masa Saito. Zbyszko was awarded the AWA Superstars of Wrestling Heavyweight Championship when the AWA Superstars of Wrestling parted ways with Zero-One MAX and striped Masato Tanaka of the title, since Zbyszko was the last AWA Heavyweight Champion. “The Living Legend” has a scheduled defense at an Superstars of Wrestling Event, one week before the Collision Course, at Wrestle Race 8.0 which will take place in Indianapolis, Indiana. His opponent has yet to be named.
Pearce is no stranger to the AWA Superstars of Wrestling. Pearce cut his teeth in the Midwest competing early on in some of the AWA Superstars or Wrestling earliest events. But before Pearce can take part in this uneasy homecoming he has to get through some stiff competition. As previously reported Pearce has a scheduled defense against former Worlds Champion “Shooter” Brent Albright. This will mark the 5th time the two wrestlers have faced off for the title. Pearce’s history with Albright one could liken to the history of the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and “Handsome” Harley Race. Pearce has a big opstacle facing him in Corpus Christi Texas, but a victory against Albright will lead him to this epic match.
All of this takes place At the 4th Annual AWA Meeting of the Territories, AMF Lanes and Family Entertainment Center, The Home of AWA Brew City Wrestling 901 Northview Road, Waukesha, Wisconsin with a 7:30 p.m. Bell Time.
