Three NWA World championships will be at stake and the 2011 NWA Future Legends Cup winner will be crowned when live wrestling matches return to this August’s NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend!
New NWA World Heavyweight Champion The Sheik has three challengers looking to get a shot at the famous “10 pounds of gold.” Former champ Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana, 3-time former champ “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce, and current TNA Television champion Gunner are the three top contenders, and each has a compelling case for why he should get the opportunity to fight for the championship. All have confirmed they’ll be in Atlanta as well!
The final rounds of the 2011 NWA Future Legends Cup competition will also take place, featuring eight of the very best young talents in the country. Last year’s winner, the former Phill Shatter and current TNA Television champ Gunner, will present the beautiful cup to this year’s winner.
This showcase of the very best the National Wrestling Alliance has to offer takes place Saturday night, August 6 at the VFW Fairgrounds in Carrolton, Georgia (a regular stop during the glory days of Georgia Championship Wrestling.) The all-star card is being held in conjunction with this year’s NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend in Atlanta August 4-7.
NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion Craig Classic will defend against longtime Alabama Junior Heavyweight Champion “Action” Mike Jackson, and the NWA World Tag Team Championship will be defended on the card, as well.
Charter buses will be available for a nominal fee to provide roundtrip transportation from Atlanta’s Airport Marriott (site of this year’s fanfest activities,) to Carrolton’s VFW Fairgrounds, for any fanfest attendees that would like to attend the matches. It’s about a 50-minute drive each way. The buses will leave Atlanta’s Airport Marriott at 5:30 p.m. and return by 11 p.m. (just in time for “All My Rowdy Friends” with “Rowdy” Roddy Piper!)
As in previous years, those with fanfest VIP “All Access” Passes will be admitted to the matches free of charge and prior to non-VIPs.
More details on the night of wrestling will be forthcoming, as well as an opportunity to signup for the charter bus service to the matches. For more info, please visit http://www.NWALegends.com/
