The NWA X-Division Champ Oliver Cain was faced with his biggest challenge to date when he was set to defend his title against former Ring of Honor World Champion Eddie Edwards.  In a battle that saw Eddie Edwards chop the living daylights out of the champ from ring post to ring post, the fans were seen shrieking from the sounds of the blows to Cain’s chest.  
Midway through the match Oliver Cain was on the ropes, bleeding from the chops and a clothesline that looked to take Cain out of the matchup for good.  Cain  could have easily of given up, a lesser  man would have.
 With the heart and dedication of a champion Oliver Cain stepped up his game to show Eddie Edwards why he was the NWA X-division Champion. 
With an flying elbow, from the top rope, and some vicious kicks to Edwards the fight was on. Edwards still looked in control  as the match heated up. It would be one mistake from Edwards during the match that would have the fan favorite Cain have hope. As Edwards went  for the pin, Cain hooked a triangle choke on the ROH Starwhile getting his own shoulders off the mat to escape the pin.
At first it looked as if Edwards would be able to escape himself but as Cain adjusted his body and put on the pressure, Edwards had no other choice but to tap out to the NWA X-Division Champion.
Fans came to their feet as the two men shook hands in middle of the ring.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 21, 2011

Brandon Espinosa shocked the fans at PWP/NWA Supreme when he cashed in his guaranteed title shot that he won when he defeated TNA and ROH Star Jay Lethal earlier this year.

In Mattoon Illinois, during a title match for the Pro Wrestling Prestige title, EL Generico was able to defeat Ring of Honor World Champion Davey Richards, Oliver Cain and the 2010 MWR Wrestler of the Year Mike Sydal in a fatal fourway.

Before the masked luchadore El Generico could celebrate, Espinosa cashed in his title opportunity to PWP commissioner DA Morrison, and sneaked attacked the new champ. El Genreico would show a lot of heart but in the end, Brandon Espinosa would add the PWP title to his trophy case.

NWA Board of Directors grant Tony Kozina a shot at Craig Classic’s NWA World Junior Heavyweight Title

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 6, 2011

National Wrestling Alliance- Midwest
St.Louis, MO.

Two days after a May 28th victory in Streator, IL. over Shank Barzini and Jimmy Karryt to become number one contender to the NWA Midwest X Championship, currently held by Oliver Cain, Tony Kozina got the news he had been waiting for since February.

The NWA Board Of Directors had reviewed his appeal of the Feb. 4-5 weekend and granted him another match against NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion, Craig Classic.

“In regards to the disputed dates of Feb. 4th and Feb. 5th, the NWA Board Of Directors finds the following.

DISPUTE OF FEB. 4th: Craig Classic misses flight due to weather. Planned championship match between Tony Kozina and Craig Classic is canceled.

CONCLUSION: Contract states that the terms of this agreement are void in the event of an “act of God”. Mr. Classic was delayed in New Jersey on Feb. 4th, due to weather. Therefore, on grounds of “act of God” this rematch request is denied.

DISPUTE OF FEB. 5th: Kozina is pinned, but has foot visibly on ropes. Referee doesn’t see this and counts to three. Referee is made aware of the situation by Kozina, but stands by his decision, and awards the match to Craig Classic via pinfall.

CONCLUSION: After reviewing the footage, the claims are found valid, therefore the NWA Board Of Directors grant a championship rematch of Tony Kozina and Craig Classic for the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Championship.”

When asked about the Midwest X title, Kozina politely answered “Let me say that I’ve had my eye on the NWA Midwest X title since I moved to St.Louis. But it was always as a stepping stone to getting the World Junior title back. That’s been my goal from day one. I’m certain Oliver Cain has no shortage of hungry contenders. I’m going to start making the calls to secure a date and a city for the world title match and then it’s back to training harder than ever before, so there’s no point in looking at the X title right now.”
