From NWA Southwest promoter Ken Taylor
12th NWA Southwest Anniversary Show
With slightly less than two months away the National Wrestling Alliance – Southwest’s (NWA-SW) 12th Anniversary Show Spectacular was announced today. It will be held in Robstown, Texas at the 2600-seat Central Pavilion of the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds on February 26, 2010. Bell-time will be 8 p.m.
The event is already taking shape impressively with two of NWA’s top Superstars signed in NWA World Heavyweight champion Blue Demon, Jr. and NWA 9-time Texas Heavyweight champion Kevin Northcutt.
The signing of Demon and Northcutt means the Anniversary Show will have two of the top 10 ranked NWA wrestlers according to Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) magazine’s latest release of December 25, under the same roof. Demon will be defending his belt and showing why he’s ranked Top 10 Overall in the World by PWI, which includes WWE and TNA wrestlers.
Blue Demon needs no introductions. He has been a fighting World Champion all over the globe since winning the belt in Mexico City on October 25, 2008. He is the first Mexican and first masked luchador to win the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in its storied 62 years. He has the charisma and ring ability to put on incredible matches showcasing Lucha Libre style.
The 6-6, 255-pound Northcutt is arguably “Mr. NWA” of this decade. His resume includes being both a former TNA star and a 2-time NWA World Tag Team champion, 2-time National Champion, North American Tag Team champion, and current 9-time Texas Heavyweight champion.
“We wanted to go ahead and announce these signings right away,” said Ken Taylor, NWA-SW Commissioner. “We’re working hard to make this Anniversary Show a big success, and it starts by signing the best. We will be releasing more stars in the coming days.”
Taylor said the celebration will have live band music headed up by recording artist Hilda Lamas. “We’re adding live band music to further enhance an exceptional entertainment experience from the time the fan walks through the door to the final bell,” he added.
