Last Night in Kingsport, TN, Chase Owens shocked the pro wrestling world on the live audience by turning his back on his mentor, Ricky Morton and joining the Illuminati!
Morton was competing in the main event of the evening against NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, Rob Conway. The match was billed as Morton’s last ever shot at the legendary “10 pounds of Gold”.
As this epic battle drew to a close, NWA Smoky Mountain Senior Referee, Smoke Carver accidentally collided with Conway. With the official laid out and the champion knocked outside of ring, Illuminati members Tony Givens and Chris Richards made their way to the ring to attack Morton. NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion, Chase Owens ran from the locker room and slide into the ring to seemingly even the odds, only to betray Morton by hitting him with a devastating “Roaring Elbow”!
Owens then went to the floor and threw Conway back into the ring, while Givens and Richards revived the referee. Conway, unaware of what had happened, covered Morton for the pin fall victory, retaining his title.
Afterwards, Richards assaulted Conway while Owens put the boots to his former mentor, Morton. Givens announced that Owens was the newest member of The Illuminati and that he would be sending Chris Richards after Conway’s NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title in the near future.
