A little history: Hoyt’s last title defense was on May 21 of 2011 against Scot Summers. The now defunct NWA Southwest failed to run any shows or sanction any title matches at NWA associate member or affiliate events after that defense. When NWA Lone Star (NWA Houston management) and NWA – World Class Championship Wrestling were awarded full NWA membership on October 7, the two management groups were quick to discuss the possibilities of sanctioning matches by which Hoyt would once again resume his reign with the historic title. We look forward to Hoyt’s return to the USA…Texas…and the NWA!
This topic of discussion came up recently. Apparently there is the answer. With the recognition of Hoyt as the reigning Texas Champion, NWA Houston and NWA World Class will continue the legacy of a championship that dates back to 1997. Hoyt has been spending most of his time working in New Japan Pro Wrestling and it will be very interesting to see when Hoyt returns whom NWA Houston will line up for his first defense in nearly 6 months.
