– Official this afternoon, Claudio Castagnoli has signed to face Scorpio Sky on October 6 television tapings at the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana, CA. Castagnoli made his disdain for Willie Mack known at the last tapings, and in addition to facing Mack, “Very European” will now contend with perhaps the best athlete in all of professional wrestling in Sky. “I respect Claudio’s talent,” said Sky. “But not his attitude. I’m ready to adjust it for him.” It’s Sky versus Castagnoli on 10/6!
– NWA North American Champion The Sheik and “Hollywood’s Own” Joey Ryan have engaged in their own personal war of words as of late, hot on the heels of the announcement that they’ll face off on October 6.

Check out Ryan’s comments at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTyNDeuKplg, and Sheik’s rebuttal at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maCCKOBq_PE. Things are heating up around the World’s Title!
– Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana, coming off of a pinfall victory over Pearce on September 4 in Mexico City for IWL, has been granted a shot at the NWA World’s Title and that championship match will take place on October 6th at the Galaxy Theatre. Pearce and Cabana have known each other for almost 15 years, even having competed against each other on the gridiron, as both men were standout High School football players in Illinois. Pearce has been credited by Cabana for being an early mentor in his career, and now all of the intimate knowledge will come into play when these two former friends collide for the title.
