On December 13, 2008 at McKeesport, PA for NWA EAST’s PWX Christmas Chaos Show, a NEW NWA National Champion was crowned. In a 6-Way Christmas Chaos match that was filled with a champion as every participant. All of the belts were up for grabs. 1/2 of the NWA North American Tag Champs; Brandon K, 1/2 of the NWA East Tag Champ; Ashton Amhurst, NWA East Brass Knuckles Champ; Chris Taylor, NWA East Three Rivers Champ James Ross, NWA East Heavyweight Champ Scottie Gash, and lastly the NWA National Champion Crusher Hansen. Brandon K finally got his hands on Hansen and defeated his rival for the National Title.
Hansen, a mainstay in NWA East’s PWX has proudly held the title since April 18th 2008by besting Pepper Parks. Hansen held some key victories over the likes of Tracey Smothers and most recently former National Champion Chance Prophet.
Brandon K’s dual championship status will be in jeopoardy for the big NWA show in Ohio on Dec. 20th. Originally slated to be a Crusher Hansen defense of his National Championship against former NWA Anarchy Heavyweight Champion Phillip Shatter. It is being rumored that Brandon K will fufill Hansen’s title defense against the “Universal Soilder.”
NWA Excutive Director Bob Trobich has removed the title and returned the championship to Crusher Hansen. Brandon K in the course of the Chaos had used the title against Hansen. In the past the referee’s decision was final, noted as recently as Blue Demon Jr. defeating Adam Pearce for the World Title, where under video review Pearce can cleary be seen being under the bottom rope thus should have stopped the pinfal. Trobich cleary wants to to avoid title changes admist controversy, however I do not believe this will be the end of this discusion. I feel that this might be all for nothing, when the National Champion battles Phillip Shatter this weekend.
