The Faction Is No More

Last night, the reigning and defending NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion returned to Ohio Valley Wrestling to put an end to the faction he once belonged to. Known as the Faction The Faction was made up of Joe Mack, Certified Luke Kurtis, Shannon the Dude, Mahabali Shera, Mr. PEC-Tacular, and EC3. With a video package from his auntie Dixie, EC3 rechristened the group The OVERMEN and dispatched Jessie Godderz. Godderz has made overtures to the NWA in the past. Godderz challenged Chris Adonis last year for the NWA National Heavyweight Championship. And defended his OVW National Championship against Da Pope (while in the NWA) in 2021. OVW has gained notoriety over the past few weeks as it has been announced that they will be releasing a docuseries through Netflix. OVW also has a television taping on Saturday, Hard Rest at the Davis Arena at 7PM, which should feature the NWA Worlds Champion, EC3.

Pollo Del Mar Guest Hosts Busted Open

The show airs Monday through Friday at 9-Noon on Sirius XM Radio and is often featured as one of the top sports podcasts on iTunes and Spotify. One highlight of many was NWA National Champion Silas Mason calling in. Pollo did a great job of bringing the conversation back to the NWA. The program can be listened to live on Sirius XM Radio’s Fight Nation or via podcast.

The Sky is Falling

Velvet Sky announced via X that moving forward she would no longer be a part of the National Wrestling Alliance going forward. No specific reason was given for her departure, however, she did thank Billy for the opportunity. And mentioned she learned so much from Joe and Time on Commentary. Velvet Sky joined the commentary team after the pandemic pause. Sky would become the 4th commentator in the Lightning One Era as she and Tim Storm replaced the departing Wade Barret

Velvet Sky also twice hosted NWA POWERRR SURGE under the name Velvet After Dark. Velvet was last seen calling the action at the NWA 75th Anniversary Pay-Per-View. Danny Dealz worked with Joe Galli on commentary for this season’s POWERRR tapings.

EC3 backs out of Devotion Championship Wrestling’s Controlled

Prior to becoming NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, EC3 was scheduled to appear at Salt Lake City, Utah’s DCW. He was scheduled to face the Manny Lemons. This was coming off the heels of him surrendering the NWA National Championship to pursue Tyrus and the Ten Pounds of Gold. Once EC3 became champion, it was expected he would defend his new title against Lemons. However, due to the championship obligation, EC3 is not able to defend the title on September 16th as he has other responsibilities. Therefore, the champion has agreed to a title defense against Manny Lemons on December 9th at their 5-Year Anniversary Event.
