In the world of professional wrestling sometimes a title can change hands without the champion ever stepping into the ring. Unfortunately NWA Southwest Commissioner Ken Taylor had to make the announcement that former WWE Superstar and reigning NWA Texas Champion, Charlie Haas would be stripped of the NWA Texas Title. Taylor officially stripped the belt from Charlie Haas on January 2, 2011 for failing to make a title defense within 90 days so now the belt is up for grabs at the Livestock Show Spectacular at the RMB Fairgrounds.
Taylor did announce that in four days, Friday January 7th at Robstown Texas, Sicodelico Jr. and Lance Hoyt will square off in the ring to determine the new NWA Texas Champion. Sicodelico Jr. has been one of the biggest names in Lucha Libre in the United States working between Mexico and the Lone Star State. Sicodelico Jr. is one of very few wrestlers with victories over the NWA Worlds Champion, Adam Pearce. Lance Hoyt has spent the past seven years wrestling for TNA Wrestling and recently in the WWE. With Lance’s departure from the WWE announced recently, it seems Hoyt is focused on making NWA Southwest his new home. Hoyt a native of Texas plans to prove to the world that he is a superstar and hopes to do so at the expense of Sicodelico Jr.
