This time last year this section was still a new feature of the website and a stone that hand yet to be turned over cause I really didn't know if I would be able to find enough content to keep this section updated. Over the last year I've surprised myself with how updated this section has been kept and this is just a testament to how much things have changed in recent years for the NWA that they have enough going on to be talked about. With that being said it's time to go to the vault:
Now since the change over in ownership of the National Wrestling Alliance I have offered a lot of praise to the current owner Billy Corgan. Since becoming the owner of the NWA he has drastically improved the social media presence of the company with the incredibly unique Ten Pounds of Gold series. This series has provided an interesting opportunity to see inside the NWA especially in the build up of the Nick Aldis & Tim Storm feud. For those who may not be aware Nick Aldis the man formerly known as Magnus captured the NWA World Title last December at CZW Cage of Death. Though at first his stock within the wrestling world was pretty low following his departure from Impact Wrestling, but it finally seems he is tapping into the potential that everyone thought he had.
Though some might point to someone who has gone All-In, but that's not what we are talking about here this man made his debut in the former NWA territory Championship Wrestling From Hollywood. For those who might not be aware the NWA does actually have a partnership of some kind with the company which allows the World Champion to appear on the companies events. The man who made his debut is former WWE star PJ Black formerly known as Justin Gabriel. This was a shocking debut for Championship Wrestling due to this being PJ's return from a debilitating injury from last year that he sustain base jumping. The injury he sustained tore a part his legs and ankles basically breaking every bone possible, but now after his match with the champion it's clear he is 100 percent.
Following his five minute challenge which PJ Black accepted and conquered the challenge which now raises the question of if PJ will now get a title shot against Nick Aldis at a later date. Overall don't get me wrong I haven't seen much of the NWA, but Nick Aldis has come into his own as a heel & is becoming the perfect foil for a variety of challengers which makes things amazing to watch. Take a look at this episode of "Ten Pounds of Gold" below:
With the rise of a social media presence for the NWA. It was fitting to move things for the site.
