January 6, 2017, Shane & Shannon Ballard will attempt to claim an unprecedented fourth NWA Western States Tag Team Championship in Santa Maria, California. The question is, which team will they be facing?
HZK (pronounced Hazuki) and Momo Watanabe, both members of Io Shirai’s new “Queen’s Quest” faction, recently challenged Holidead and Thunder Rosa for their NWA Western States Tag Team Championship at a World Wonder Ring Stardom event. The challenge was accepted, and with Stardom having been awarded temporary provisional control of the title by Vendetta Pro Wrestling, the match is authorized and sanctioned.
The NWA Western States Tag Team Championship will be at stake on December 22, 2016 at the legendary Korakuen Hall in Bunky?, Tokyo, Japan as part of the Stardom Year End Climax!
In the event that Watanabe & HZK are successful, they will have conquered both sides of the Pacific, with Io Shirai in her second reign as World of Stardom Champion. However, in order to win the titles, they must defeat the first women’s team to win any version of the NWA Western States Tag Team Championship. The Twisted Sisterz–Holidead & Thunder Rosa–defeated the team of Alexander G. Bernard and Jimi Mayhem at NWA Vendetta Pro’s “September To Remember VII” event in Santa Maria, California, and they also have a successful title defense against the team of El Mariachi Loco and former NWA Vendetta Pro Heavyweight Champion Little Cholo at Sabotage Wrestling’s debut event in Covina, California back on October 7, 2016.
The winners will face Shane & Shannon Ballard on January 6, 2017 in Santa Maria, California!
