World Jr. Heavyweight Champion added to The World is a Vampire | NWA News
The NWA World Junior Heavyweight Championship has never been defended in Mexico. This changes on March 4th, 2023, in Mexico City, Mexico. The World is a Vampire Festival that will bring “The Future Legend” Kerry Morton to Mexico.
Kerry Morton won the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion at Hard Times 3 defeating Homicide. Since winning the championship, Kerry Morton has become quite the fighting champion. In a short amount of time, Morton has defended against Colby Corinio, Brian Pillman Jr., Jimmy Lloyd, Alex Taylor, and most recently former champion Chase Owens. Many of these matches land outside of the National Wrestling Alliance.
Originally a scheduling conflict precluded the Jr. Heavyweight Champion from attending this event. On February 23rd, Morton confirmed he would indeed be in Mexico. Morton joined NWA boss Billy Corgan in Mexico for the Press Conference. Morton is scheduled to face AAA’s Jack Cartwheel and NWA’s Sal The Pal.
