NWA Week in Review for March 7th, 2009

The Showcase returns to Hollywood CA at the Columbia Square Studios. The NWA plans on two big television tapings on March 7th and 8th. Scheduled to appear are; NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Blue Demon, Jr., NWA Worlds Tag Team Champions “The Skullkrushers”, NWA North American Champions Mike DiBiase, NWA National Heavyweight Champion “Universal Soldier” Phil Shatter, “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce, Oliver John and the Boarder Patrol, Puerto Rico’s Apollo, “Shooter” Brent Albright, Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch, Muscle Gang, Joey Ryan, Canada’s Nelson Creed, The Young Bucks, and “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson. NWA Pro officials also confirmed none other than Tristan Gallo the self-professed “Half-Breed Heart Throb.” This is great news for the ladies! I will be in attendance and I will try to bring you some of the action here.
In recent weeks we’ve talked about some of the biggest names in wrestling history. Ric Flair making an appearance for NWA Mid-Atlantic. Shawn Michaels attending the EWF’s school of Hard Knocks. Even the man who disrespected the legendary 10lbs of gold has been re-connected to the NWA. Add Bill Dundee and the “King” Jerry Lalwer as they bring their feud of nearly 3 decades to NWA Main Event. Lawler has appeared a few times in association with NWA Main Event several times this year and last. When Lawler isn’t making appearance for the NWA he still does commentary for the WWE.
Speaking of WWE, recently released Super Crazy has come to a multiple date agreement with the Management of Pro Wrestling Revolution. Pro Wrestling Revolution brings some of the hottest luchadores to Northen California. Including appearances from Los Misterios (El Hijo De Rey Misterio and Rey Misterio Sr.), Sicodelico Jr., El Hijo de Sicodelico, Rayman, and even Worlds Heayvweight Champion Blue Demon Jr. The Demon defended his title in Pro Wrestling Revolution against Oliver John.
And now Blue Demon Jr. proudly defends his NWA Championship against fellow NWA Champion, Ryan Taylor. A dual title holder, holding his home promotions American Championship and the NWA Heritage Title, Taylor has made a career of being an underdog. Even holding victories over the King of Underdog, TJ Perkins. Blue Demon Jr. will have to keep his guard up. This match is scheduled for this Sunday regardless of his matches for the showcase tapings. This could be a fatal judgment error for the champ.
If Blue Demon can leave this weekend title intact, he will have a future defense in Charlotte, North Carolina. As Bob Trobich and JD Costello announced that a Worlds Title match will be taking place in May or June. The schedule is being worked out and contracts are being finalized. On the live event the show announced that they would be running weekly 30 minute long shows. The first one being made available at http://digitaltuxedo.com/.
Lastly NWA Southwest’s NWA Oklahoma has announced its plans to run on Tribal Lands and Indian Owned Casinos. The staff at OK had mentioned that they have been getting requests from lots of Tribes to promote shows in these venues. The relationship with these venues will likely give NWA OK more dates and already allowed them to help book the NWA Southwest’s 11th Anniversary show. NWA OK has also expressed interest in competing in joint shows with NWA Arizona’s Impact Zone Wrestling to promote joint shows in Oklahoma.
