Santana Garrett continues to be RED hot in the world of pro wrestling. In her young career she has been featured in many of the top wrestling promotions in the country including WWE: NXT, TNA PPV’S, SHIMMER and SHINE. Fans have been thrilled to see Santana G grace the pages of Pro Wrestling Illustrated and with her being featured as the cover girl for the Ring Sirens December issue the magazine has been selling like crazy.

With the popularity and beauty of Santana Garrett, it can be easily forgotten that she is a women that is very focused on being the top female wrestler in the world today. She possess all three qualities that every wrestler would like to have, talent, charisma and the looks. That has led to success in single victories and tag team championships at WOW with partner Amber O’Neal.

Yet, her biggest test is set to come as she is seeking to capture a title that she has yearned to have for years, the NWA Women’s World Championship currently held by the talented Barbi Hayden. If Santana G is to accomplish her goal to be the NWA Women’s Champion, she will have earned it as Hayden is as good as they come. Hayden has been a fighting champion ever since defeating Kacee Carlisle at NWA Houston and has a victory against Santana Garrett early on, but Santana Garrett has shown that she is able to recover from a loss and return even better.

The NWA is on the upswing with a NWA President Bruce Tharpe regaining a presence in Japan and classic matches that include the likes of SATOSHI KOJIMA defeating the “IRONMAN” Rob Conway for the NWA World title, and quite possibly the most talented group of wrestlers in the NWA top 10 in years.

Many believe that Santana Garrett is the future of the sport, but she can only be as good as her opponents and the feuds that she has. Flair had Steamboat, Hogan had Andre and Stone Cold had Vince…….Is it only fitting that Garrett has Hayden…. .

Could 2014 be the year for Women’s wrestling in the NWA? If Santana Garrett has anything to say about it, it will.

Look for NWA World Champion Barbi Hayden vs. Santana Garrett to heat up this spring near a ring near you.

Could the future of the NWA include a little Harley Race tradition with Rob Conway vs. Trevor Murdoch and Kacee Carlisle vs. Heather Patera ?

Rob Conway has defended his NWA Title around the world including multi trips to Japan.

The NWA returned to the Midwest in 2013 with a huge NWA World Championship match between the current NWA World Champion Rob Conway and the NWA Central States Champion Evan “Money” Morris on August 31st. For the first time Money got to feel first-hand the power and talent of one of the Champion of the World . Though the outcome was a loss, the match should provide experience for Money as he looks to defend his Central States Championship and prove to the NWA that he is deserving of another shot.

Till then Rob Conway is on the road taking on all challengers that feels if they are man enough to take on “The Iron Man” one on one.

Evan Money feels the power of the Champ Conway

In less than two weeks Rob Conway is set to defend the title against former ECW Champion and WWE, TNA star Rhino in San Antonio, Texas at “Showdown in September” on September 21st in a battle between two true monsters of the ring. This match promises to be a bruising affair that will leave even the winner beat and battered. ‘

If Conway can survive the onslaught of Rhino, life will not get any easier and he will be on his way to meet wrestling legend Liger on September, 29th in Japan in what promises to be a classic. If Conway is able to retain the title from the legend in his home country, there is one man that has his eyes set on the NWA Title and that is former 8-time NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Harley Race’s own student Trevor Murdoch.

Murdoch, a former 3-time WWE Tag Team Champion has wrestled around the world thrilling fans in the main event against the very best. Murdoch a former 4-time Harley Race owned World League Wrestling champion would be a true threat to the NWA World title, and would have extra desire to add his name to his mentor in the record books of the historic NWA.

NWA President Bruce R Tharpe and the NWA World Champion Rob Conway

Missouri Wrestling Revival caught up with the NWA President Bruce R Tharpe to ask him for his thoughts of possibility of a match between the NWA World Champion Rob Conway and Trevor Murdoch and the President was quick to say that “Both Murdoch and Patera are formidable challengers and these would both be great matches!”

Yet, Murdoch is not the only champion that is letting it be known that they have been seeking an opportunity to add their name to the NWA dynasty.

No woman has won the WLW Ladies Championship more than Miss Natural, is she poised to win the NWA Women’s Championship?

The daughter of Ken Patera, “Miss Natural” Heather Patera have been traveling the country seeking a challenge that is capable of matching up with her skills, something that very few are able to do. Trained by her father, as well as Harley Race, she has been the WLW Ladies Champion 6 times, while appearing at SHIMMER and capturing huge wins against the former NWA Women’s champion MsChif in her hometown.

Kacee Carlisle captured the NWA Women’s title from the 3 –time NWA Women’s champion Tasha Simone on October 20, 2012 and has not looked backed ever since. She is in the Pro Wrestling Illustrated for the 34th week in a row and is now number 4 in the world.

If this match was to happen the fans of the Midwest wrestling would be witness to two of the hardest hitting females in the sport today. Miss Natural would be the hunter seeking to pounce and add the NWA Women’s World title to go along the many accolades of her father Ken Patera and become the 22nd women to hold onto a title that was first held by wrestling great Mildred Burke.

Trained by the 8-time Former NWA World Champion Trevor Murdoch and Miss Natural have been capturing huge wins around the country.

If Harley Race’s most decorated students invade the NWA will anyone be able to stop them?

Introducing Ohio Valley Wrestling Trainee Michael Hayes

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 7, 2010

Last month at Pro Wrestling Epic we were on hand to watch the PWE Champion the Mississippi Madman team up with former WWE’s Eugene to take on “The Future” Donovan Ruddick and Mason Beck.

During the evening I had the chance to sit down with a young Michael Hayes. Hayes is just beginning to train under Eugene (Nick Dinsmore )and the rest of the staff at Ohio Valley Wrestling.

The website says it best

Ohio Valley Wrestling is recognized around the world as one of the finest professional wrestling training facilities in the industry. OVW counts among its many accolades that it was once one of the official developmental programs for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), the sport’s leading promotion.

Over the years, OVW has trained over one hundred superstars for the WWE, including many current and past WWE Champions: Batista, John Cena, Victoria, Doug and Danny Basham, Shelton Benjamin, Charlie Haas, Randy Orton, plus many more including Rob Conway, Eugene, Sylvan Grenier, Bobby Lashley, and Lance Cade.

Located in Louisville, Kentucky, OVW‘s training center is under the supervision of OVW owner “Nightmare” Danny Davis, a former pro wrestler with nearly 30 years’ experience in wrestling, managing, promoting, and training, with Rip Rogers as lead trainer – who is a veteran pro wrestler and trainer in his own right.

Let me share with you a special interview I did with Hayes.
