Echoed with the Facebook Live announcement by the National Wrestling Alliance and Nick Aldis, it was made official by WrestleCade of the match they are hosting at the SuperShow in the Winston-Salem area in North Carolina on Saturday November 24th. NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship Nick Aldis will defend his title against the All-American Jack Hagar.
At the NWA 70th Anniversary Show, “The National Treasure” regained his NWA Championship by defeating Cody two out of three falls. Prior to his loss at All In, Nick Aldis had defended the title successfully across four continents, defeating 33 challengers representing promotions like Ring of Honor, House of Hardcore, IPW UK, and Championship Wrestling from Hollywood.
According to Aldis, this match was one of three matches his management team were quick to agree to. Aldis would foreshadow who he’d face in North Carolina by decreeing “I’m the Worlds Champion. I’m not All-American. I’m a citizen of the World.” This will mark the second time that Aldis will defend his NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship in North Carolina.
Two years ago the former two time World Champion parted ways quietly with the WWE. Hagar immediately started to compete Internationally. He also competed at last years WrestleCade SuperShow, Hagar participated in a three way match for Impact Wrestling’s Global Title, which also included Johnny Impact, that Eli Drake ended up winning. Since then he won the short lived 5 Star Wrestling Championship in the UK, signed to fight with Belator, and has become a regular for MLW and Lucha Underground.
WrestleCade, much like this year’s All In will feature their super show in conjunction with live podcasts “Something to Wrestle With, with Bruce Pritchard”, meet and greets, and a general convention atmosphere. The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship Match will be available on FITE TV via PPV at 5PM Eastern. You can still purchase your tickets to the event by visiting WrestleCade.com/tickets
