Live Wrestling Action Returns To The Queen City In The Spring,“New Beginnings!” Series To Showcase Top Young NWA Talent!Something old, something new, something different. Wrestling simplified. That’s what you’ll experience when the very best young talent the National Wrestling Alliance has to offer converge on the Carolinas for NWA: New Beginnings! — a series of four, monthly Sunday afternoon events that get started on Sunday afternoon, February 14, 2010.Dedicated to providing a fun, family-friendly atmosphere, and a return to the values that for generations made the Mid-Atlantic area the “hotbed” of pro wrestling, each of the monthly cards — February through May — will take place at the beautiful Hilton University Place hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina, also home to the yearly NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekends each August!For too long, area fans have been denied an opportunity to see quality wrestling action, free of the filth and profanity that you see nowadays on television. But that will change — in a BIG WAY — in 2010!Each month, you’ll see the champions and top young talent of the NWA, the oldest and most respected sanctioning body in wrestling. One of those already signed is the 27-year-old reigning NWA National Champion, Phil Shatter. A former Marine, Shatter grew up in Hickory, NC and is a graduate of Saint Stephens High School there. He’ll be defending his championship belt on Valentine’s Day in Charlotte against a soon-to-be-named opponent.29-year-old Chase Stevens, one-half of “The Naturals,” is another incredibly talented young wrestler that has also signed on with NWA: New Beginnings! One-half of the NWA World Tag Team champions three times previously, Stevens looks forward to establishing himself as a singles competitor here in Charlotte.Another of the top young talents headed this way is Caprice Coleman, who is not only an accomplished athlete but also an ordained minister. “I love the Lord and I love people,” said the Southern Pines native. “I know that many people have been turned off by ‘Christian hypocrites.’ I have made a vow to live a life in front of people, that will provoke them to give Him another chance.” Coleman brings a great, positive outlook to NWA: New Beginnings!Many more gifted young athletes will showcase their skills here. Included are the “Queen City Killer” Zack Salvation, the “Man Scout” Jake Manning, Caleb Konley, Josh Magnum, Damien Wayne, and Brad Attitude. More competitors, and specific matches for the Valentine’s Day event, will be announced here in the coming weeks!It’s an exciting time. Please help us by telling your friends, telling your neighbors — especially those that have been turned-off by TV wrestling for so many years.Hope you can be with us each month in Charlotte to share in the fun of being a wrestling fan again!Should you have any questions or comments to share, please feel free to email us at NWANewBeginnings@aol.com
The Folks of Charlotte just got a teriffic Christmas present. It looks like Greg Price is serious about bringing in some of the good, young, talent from the Mid-Atlantic. Former NWA North American Champion Wayne, Konley, Manning, former NWA World Tag Team Champion Stevens and NWA National Champion Phil Shatter is a great core roster to build around. The decision not to saddle Shatter with a tag team partner or stable is a great move. Shatter has an awesome ring presence and shouldn’t be wasted sharing the lime light with anyone. With any luck, Shatter will get the spotlight in New Beginnings. Who do you think should be the focus of NWA New Beginnings? Do you like the roster announcements? Leave a comment and let us know.
