The National Wrestling Alliance has come to terms with former NWA World Heavyweight Champion Royce Isaacs. Isaacs joins an increasingly growing list of talent who have left the NWA since the start of Covid-19 and the inactivity of the wildly popular NWA POWERRR. We sat down with Isaacs back and April and discussed his experiences in CWFH and the NWA.
On September 23rd, Isaacs confirmed via twitter that he had in fact been released from his contract. “Now that its public; After a little over a year with the NWA I asked for and was granted my release. I’m excited for my next adventure and what the future holds, but I’m leaving with a lot of memories and friends and I will miss the awesome fans at GPB Studios. Stay tuned.”
Isaacs entered the National Wrestling Alliance as part of the Crockett Cup 2019. Teaming with Thomas Latimer in the WildCard Battle Royal, the duo shocked many by not only advancing past the tournament, but by defeating the heavily favored War Kings (Jax Dane and Crimson). They would go on to defeat Bandito and Flip Gordon in the 2nd Round. Latimer and Isaacs would go on to compete in the finals with Medusa as their manager, however they would be bested by the Ring of Honor duo of PCO and Brody King Villains Enterprise.
Before joining the NWA ranks, Isaacs was a dominant fixture in Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. He was a former Hollywood Heritage Champion and a two time United Wrestling Network Television Champion. While not wrestling in Hollywood, he would partner with Jorel Nelson as the One Percent. The On Percent would win tag team titles at Future Stars of Wrestling in Las Vegas and later the tag team titles at DEFY, in Portland.
Before NWA POWERRR launched Isaacs along with partner Latimer would venture to Ring of Honor and defeat the Villains to capture the NWA World Tag Team Championship. The duo would find themselves in a feud with the Rock N Roll Express, while forming a strategic alliance with Nick Aldis called Strictly Business. The Wildcard would never recapture the World Tag Team Titles, but were often in the conversation as potential challengers for the titles.
