This past Friday night in Tampa, Florida, Craig Classic became the NWA Florida Junior Heavyweight Champion by defeating Chris Jones. Jones, who demanded this match take place after being attacked and left laying by Classic on October 17 in Ft. Pierce, Florida, battled to the end but eventually fell victim to the Blue Thunder Driver.
Chris Jones is going to have to wait for his rematch because Craig Classic was just offered and has accepted another tour of Big Japan Pro Wrestling. This tour will be Craig’s 10th tour of Japan since 2006. Upon receiving word of Craig’s returning to Japan, he has received offers from multiple wrestling organizations throughout Japan. Craig is taking the NWA Florida Junior Heavyweight Title with him to defend it against any and all junior heavyweights in Japan.
