Match Line Up

Current NWA World Tag Team Champions, The Dark City Fight Club (Jon Davis & Kory Chavis) and partner Vordell Walker, go up against the trio of DX's "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn and former World Wrestling Entertainment and National Wrestling Alliance World Tag Team Champions, Mosh & Thrasher, the Head Bangers.

Current NWA National Heavyweight Champion, "The Dark Child" Chance Prophet faces the Tokyo Monster Kahagas in a Return Match with Lumberjack Rules! The last time these two squared off, the match ended in a wild double disqualification with both men brawling out of the ring and into the crowd and neither gaining the upper hand; reminiscent of the historical NWA battles between Abdullah the Butcher and the Original Sheik more than 30 years ago.

Second round Semi-Final pairings for the NWA Ring Warriors Grand Championship Tournament pitting "The Marquee" Bruce Santee against "The VIP" Cassidy Riley; and Steve "The Moose" Madison versus the 7-foot 315-pound Giant Titan.

In other matches, the self proclaimed "King of Florida" Francisco Ciatso, managed by longtime tag team partner Pete Cannon locks horns with local favorite and former WWE performer Pablo Marquez; The Beast, accompanied by longtime South Florida veteran Snake Master Jeff takes on Tommy Vandal; and Santana Garrett battles the mischievous Christina Von Eerie in the first ever NWA Ring Warriors' Ladies Division match.

In addition to the great matches and the special online ticket offer, there will be door prizes too including: Two (2) Reserved Front Row Tickets for the next NWA Ring Warriors event, Gift Cards, Wrestling Books, Wrestling DVDs including several classic Ring of Honor DVDs and Two (2) Tickets to WrestleMania 28 which takes place April 1, 2012 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami and features The Rock vs. John Cena!
