May 22nd, 16 men were announced as potential suitors for the Heavyweight Championship of the World, after the title being stripped away from Christian Cage. Of the 16 competitors Brent Albright was highly favored to win out his brackets and face the winner between Adam Pearce and Bryan Danielson. And although Danielson won that match, Pearce would face Albright. Danielson who was injured in another title match for Ring of Honor, was made the special referee. Albright and Pearce battled back and forth but it was Pearce who would have his hand raised at the end. Albright disgusted by the decision seemingly disappeared from the NWA. Pearce would go on to defend his title against notable opponents Damien Wayne, Sean Waltman, and a handful of talented wrestlers from the Southern California area. It wasn’t until the NWA Showcase, that Albright made his intentions clear. That he wanted Adam Pearce. Albright battled through the rankings in the NWA to earn his title shot at Pearce. Pearce began attacking the challenger week after week. Unaffected by the cheap shots , was has been building for 9 months finally comes to a head.
