The storyline for the NWA Championship is about who will be Demon’s first challenger with Adam Pearce and Brent Albright both fighting for the shot. Pearce had his foot under the rope when he lost the title to Demon in Mexico, so the angle is that he was “cheated out of the title”. Albright challenges Demon in a segment where they both show respect for each other. The NWA board of directors will naturally book Pearce vs. Albright in a top contender’s match.
A tag match featuring Albright and Bryan Danielson vs. Adam Pearce and Oliver John takes place with the winning duo getting to pick the referee for the singles match. Albright and Danielson win and Albright chooses Danielson to be the special referee, so now Danielson is at odds with Pearce as well.
In the singles match, Pearce nails Danielson with an elbow by accident. That leads to Danielson going to hit Pearce, who moves out of the way and Albright takes the hit. Pearce ends up getting the win, so there’s heat between Albright and Danielson now as well.
There is also a five team round robin tournament featuring Los Luchas, The Border Patrol, Native Blood, The Young Bucks, and Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch with the winners earning a title shot against NWA Tag Team Champions, The SkullCrushers.
The NWA North American championship angle involves Mike DiBiase (Ted’s other son) using the nickname “The Legacy” pushing his family’s history in wrestling.
DiBiase has a storyline with TJ Perkins, pushing the idea that Perkins isn’t in his league because he doesn’t have the legacy that DiBiase has. In the end, when they have the match, DiBiase wins but Perkins proves to be a threat.
