MAIN EVENT – THREE WAY DANCE
FOR THE NWA BRITISH COMMONWEALTH TITLE!
After several days of tough negotiation, NWA Executive Director Bob Trobich has granted Karl “Machine Gun” Anderson’s demand for a 3-way title defense. Anderson, who went on a tirade after last Sunday’s weekly NWA Pro show at the Inoki Dojo, insisted that he be given a chance to prove his greatness by taking on the two men deemed top contenders for his title at the same time. Here is a look at the three men in this monumental bout:
Champion: Karl “Machine Gun” Anderson – 6’1” 228 – Pipestone, Minnesota
On January 4th, 2006 a young man who had been known in parts of the MidWest as Chad Allegra showed up at the Inoki Dojo to hone his skills. For years he had worked under the Allegra name in order to make his mark without living off his family name. Upon entering the Dojo, he realized that in order to reach his full potential, he could no longer hide who he was and Karl “Machine Gun” Anderson burst onto the SoCal wrestling scene. In six short months not only did all the fans on the West Coast know who he was, but Anderson had also reached international superstar status, capped off with his defeat of Ireland’s Fergal Devitt for the NWA British Commonwealth Title! Since then Anderson has successfully defended the belt against opponents of all shapes and sizes. Love him or hate him, Anderson’s skill and determination are unquestionable and both will be put to the test this Sunday in Santa Monica.
Challenger: Alex Koslov – 5’8” 197 – Moscow, Russia
In a story similar to Anderson’s Alex Koslov also changed his name upon entering the LA Inoki Dojo. After previously using his middle name of Pinchek, the “Russian Hooligan” began using his proper last name to indicate the new attitude and approach that he had learned under the New Japan training. Koslov has proceeded to go on a tear, quickly becoming one of the most popular wrestlers in every company he worked for. In that time Koslov has had several memorable matches, most notably his victory at NWA Pro’s Alternative Wrestling Show over Scorpio Sky in a submission match that culminated a 5 month feud between the two. Koslov’s earlier shot at Anderson’s NWA British Commonwealth Title ended in controversy as Alex won the match by DQ but insisted that the contest be restarted, which it was, only to fall to Anderson’s piledriver after questionable tactics from the Champion. After working his way back to another title shoe, Koslov feels that this time he is prepared for anything that the Machine Gun is ready to throw at him.
Challenger: Mikey Nicholls – 6’1” 209 – Perth, Western Australia
Mikey Nicholls is living proof of the power of determination. Beginning his training at age 14, Nicholls slowly but surely climbed the ranks of Australia’s premier wrestling organization EPW to claim their heavyweight championship at the tender age of 20. Never complacent with his successes, Nicholls, along with EPW rivals Hartley “Jag” Jackson and Davis Storm, crossed the ocean to come to Los Angeles and train at the world famous Inoki Dojo. After three months of training Nicholls was called back home to Australia to defend his EPW Championship. Unable to successfully retain against the monster Havok, Nicholls immediately set his sights on a different title rather than attempting to reclaim his Australian belt. Nicholls began an intensive training program to prepare himself for a run at the NWA British Commonwealth Title. Upon his return to the Dojo, Nicholls was said to be happy to see that Karl Anderson still had the title as Mikey believes he has the Machine Gun’s number due to previous encounters between the two that Nicholls came out on top off.
Koslov and Nicholls both believe this is their time. Anderson doesn’t believe there is anyone who can beat him. The entire NWA will be watching as the coveted British Commonwealth Title is decided in this incredible encounter!
Also on the card…
Bobby Jo Marshall vs. Lil’ Cholo
Last week’s brutal encounter between newcomer Bobby Jo Marshall and SoCal favorite Human Tornado didn’t sit well with a lot of people. Marshall’s words and actions infuriated both fans and wrestlers alike and this Sunday NWA Pro/AWS Light Heavyweight Champion Lil’ Cholo has decided to step up to the Australian menace. Cholo called the Inoki Dojo offices and had this to say: “In recent weeks I have seen and been through more than I can tolerate. First I had Lionheart’s cowardly actions at AWS and now I hear that some skinhead has tried to take out my friend Tornado. Well if the Dojo officials are hesitant to put those two back in the same ring any time soon, then let me at him! Lionheart can run from me all he wants, but I will catch him someday and someday soon! Billy Bob Dundee or whatever your name is, I’m gonna make you run from me too!”
The Return of Fergal Devitt!
In late 2005 the Inoki Dojo helped the world to discover a new superstar in Ireland’s Fergal Devitt. Shortly after wining the NWA British Commonwealth Title from Quebec’s Dru Onyx at the NWA 57th Anniversary Convention in Nashville, TN Devitt began defending the belt all over the East Coast of America when he got a call from the Inoki Dojo. Dojo representatives had seen him at the convention and wanted him to bring his talents to Santa Monica. Devitt boarded a plane and his life changed forever. Not only was the Inoki Dojo the perfect place for him to sharpen his already impressive skills, but it also provided an incredible opportunity for him to be seen all over the world. When Devitt lost the NWA BC title to Karl “Machine Gun” Anderson in March, his loss was a bitter pill to swallow made easier the very next day as he was handed a contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Devitt signed on the dotted line and was off to make his mark in the land of the rising sun. Devitt, known in Japan as “Prince Devitt”, has quickly begun climbing the ladder of the most elite organization in the sport today. This Sunday marks Devitt’s final scheduled appearance at the place that helped make his dreams come true. Please join us at the show in supporting our friend, the newest superstar on the international wrestling scene, Fergal “Prince” Devitt!
All of this plus TJ “Pinoy Boy” Perkins, American Balloon, “Iceman” Webster Dauphiney, Brawlin’ Bo Cooper, Tommy Wilson and more in action! Come on out and support the NWA Pro family as the weekly action at the Inoki Dojo heats up this Sunday!
