Pro Wrestler Makes Official Comment about NWA Event Incident

(Tampa, Fl.) – Sunday, August 8th, 2010 was the day, NWA North American Champion, The Sheik decided to make a point.

It took place in the hotbed of Pro Wrestling, Charlotte, NC in front of fans and legends of Pro Wrestling alike at the NWA Fanfest.

He’s tired of being disrespected by the NWA and tired of being denied a match with the NWA World Heavyweight Champion.

He made that point, the only way he knows how; in a violent fashion!

Through an Interpreter, The Sheik had this to say about his actions:

“Adam Pearce paid the price, but the true culprits are those infidels, Bob Trobich and the NWA Board of Directors. They are the cause of the knot on the head of Adam Pearce.

They are the reason the Middle Eastern Madman has taken matters into his own, blood thirsty, hands.

For over a year The Sheik has been denied his destiny. A denial that started when The Blue Demon refused the Sheik a title match, claiming he wasn’t worthy. Sheik’s response was to conquer Florida, The Midwest, and ultimately the North American Continent itself, but still he is denied.

Next, the NWA holds a “Future Legends” tournament and invites many top contenders including the National Heavyweight Champion, Phil Shatter, but where is The Sheik?

Why is The North American Champion denied? Why is the most dominant and feared man in the NWA, again, insulted? The truth is clear.

The NWA Board of Directors is protecting its World Heavyweight Champion and in doing so, keeping the title out of the reach of The Sheik.

NO MORE! The NWA and it’s World Champion must answer to The Sheik now. Pearce will force The NWA Board of Directors to make the match, and by doing so, will seal his own fate. The Sheik WILL destroy Adam Pearce. The Sheik WILL become NWA World Heavyweight Champion. The Sheik WILL realize his destiny and Rule the Wrestling World!”

The NWA Board of Directors declined to comment at this time on these statements but one thing that is for sure is not whether it will happen BUT when it will happen.
