[Indy Wrestling News] NWA Championship Vacated; New Champ to Be Decided in November
Over the weekend, Colt Cabana and Adam Pearce ended their months-long “Seven Levels of Hate” with a cage match taking place in Australia. However much had changed since the series began and when it came time for the final contest, the National Wrestling Alliance decided to not sanction the match, effectively taking away the belt both men had been fighting over for most of 2012. Well the match went on anyway and Cabana emerged victorious, and afterwards Pearce and Cabana both decided they didn’t want the belt and they left it laying in the center of the ring. *(EDITOR’S NOTE: Check out the video below for what went down)*
Although this gesture effectively vacated the NWA World Heavyweight Title, the NWA made it official on their website today via president Bruce Tharpe. Here’s what he had to say.
The NWA™ World Heavyweight Title has been vacated. The Board of Governors wish former champion Adam Pearce the best in his future endeavors. There will be a new NWA™World Heavyweight Champion crowned on Friday, November 2nd in Clayton, New Jersey.
So there you have it. The NWA World Heavyweight Title will once again have a new home come Friday and with Cabana and Pearce gone, I have no idea who they’re going to move to that spot. I won’t even venture a guess because I’m not informed enough to make an opinion of that stature. But it will be interesting to see who ends up with the title and who Tharpe and company decide to have represent the new NWA going forward.
