United Wrestling Network to host a Television Special in China

When they say that the United Wrestling Network has a worldwide reach, that isn’t just a turn of phrase. From the competitors to the promotions, United has collected a system of moving parts that have resulted in the most unique professional wrestling happening in the most unique locations around the globe. After United presented two radically different major events in New Orleans last week (CZW and Main Event Pro Wrestling), the Network is now tasked with topping those in a completely different fashion. The aforementioned worldwide reach has touched down in Wenzhou, China, and a stacked lineup of stars is set to make their China debuts during a television broadcast on April 14. Already signed:

NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis

The Aldis Crusade Shines in United

Aldis bends James Ellsworth in half with the King’s Lynn Cloverleaf.

The Aldis Crusade with the Ten Pounds of Gold is now in full swing. With the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion racking up successful title defenses, Nick Aldis is well on his way to being talked about among the greats – Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, and Harley Race – that is if he can win them all.

The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion extends a hand to his Challenger, David Starr.

Two of the highest profile title defenses so far took place on United Wrestling Network soil. Possibly the farthest apart of any two United companies, the NWA selected Championship Wrestling From Hollywood and IPW: UK to each host a major title defense. Hollywood saw Aldis defend against the popular James Ellsworth (who earned the opportunity by defeating former Worlds Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles) and the United Kingdom saw Aldis choose international attraction David Starr to challenge for the gold. Here is the full story, courtesy of the National Wrestling Alliance:

Nick Aldis is scheduled to make defenses at Xcite Wrestling on March 16 and, if still Champion, at Rocky Mountain Pro on March 17. For updates on United, the NWA, and The Aldis Crusade, make sure to check back with UnitedWrestlingTV.com.

2018 PP3 Cup Bearer: Suede Thompson

“When I heard that three count, the only thing that went through my mind was, ‘I did it. I finally did it. No more doubts.’” An extremely proud Suede Thompson has been strutting around Sin City with the PP3 Cup in his grasp. Landing a 450 Splash onto PP3 Finalist Royce Isaacs and scoring a pinfall victory has bigger implications for the “One Man Show” than just winning one Main Event match. Coming out on top in the Percival Pringle III Memorial Cup Tournament is a career-making moment for Suede Thompson and one he doesn’t intend on letting slip through his fingers.

For former PP3 Cup Holders, winning that Tournament has been a launching pad to stardom and, for some, certain gold. In the past, Cup Winners like Ricky Mandel (2014) and YUMA (2015) have elected to use their title opportunity to challenge for and win the Hollywood Heritage Championship. Other Cup Holders like Watts (2016) and Dicky Mayer (2017) have found partners and have gone after the United World Tag Team Championship. 2018 is the first year that the Cup allows the Holder to challenge for any title defended in the United Wrestling Network. That opens up a whole world of possibility for Suede, because if he successfully challenges the right opponent at the right time, he could be on the fast track to title defenses all over the United Wrestling Network and all over the world. With that in mind and United set to crown its first World Champion this year, the “CEO of Suederade” has a lot of options when it comes to his title opportunity. UnitedWrestlingTV.com asked Thompson if he has any United Champions already in mind when the time comes to use Percy’s Privilege.

Nikko Marquez presents the prize to the 2018 PP3 Cup Bearer.

“As far as focusing on one certain title,” says Suede with a contemplative expression, “I’m keeping my options open and will be scouting the very deep talent pool that United has to offer.” Patience is a virtue and one that will hopefully pay off in a big way for the 2018 Cup Bearer. “Top Guy” is no longer just a nickname for Suede Thompson. Fanfare for Suede has been overwhelmingly positive and his victory in the finals of the PP3 Cup Memorial Tournament proves that he is the man to watch in 2018. Everything’s looking up, so turn down for what?!

“Ten Pounds of Gold” defended at IPW:UK

Upon winning the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship from Tim Storm at CZW: Cage of Death, Nick Aldis declared that he would bring honor back to that Title and prestige to the entire National Wrestling Alliance. As a part of what the Champion is calling the “Aldis Crusade,” the NWA has selected a number of United promotions to host a title defense putting the “Ten Pounds of Gold” on the line. After his first successful defense in Los Angeles where he defeated James Ellsworth, Nick Aldis returns home to the United Kingdom to remind his countrymen what that championship means.

“The Ten Pounds of Gold is not a prop. It is not just a strap. It is a symbol of values and if you’re good enough to hold it, a way of life.” The next person in line to hoping to make the Worlds Heavyweight Championship his way of life is United Wrestling Network standout David Starr. A frequent competitor at Combat Zone Wrestling, Starr has made an international name for himself over the last two years with a worldly appeal across every fanbase he’s stepped in front of. It is for these reasons combined with his technical skills that have put him in line for a shot at Nick Aldis. We caught up with David Starr to get his thoughts on the biggest opportunity of his career.

An NWA licensed official explains the rules of the Title Bout to Nick Aldis and David Starr.

“I have dreamed of being NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion since I was little watching tapes of Dusty and Flair,” says a determined David Starr. “Nick Aldis is an admirable Champion.” Fans of either man know that Aldis and Starr will stop at nothing to accomplish their goals. This match will be a manifestation of that resolve at the highest level.

Reno Scum Defends the United World Tag Team Championship on Feb 25

After ridding the United Wrestling Network of former World Tag Team Champions Pac 3, Luster the Legend and Adam Thornstowe have declared that they will defend their titles anywhere in the world. With a television broadcast emanating from Shanghai, China on the horizon, the men collectively known as Reno Scum are soon to make their promise a reality. But before their flight for the Far East takes off, they must put those titles on the line one more time at Championship Wrestling From Hollywood. But who will step up to challenge the Champs?

CWFH’s Minority Owner Nikko Marquez has been scouting tag teams from across the United Wrestling Network to find a duo that will bring the most exciting fight to television. With touches of “old school” brawling in the repertoire of Reno Scum, Nikko’s task to match that skill set struck an idea in his head to push the matchup forward – or Retro Forward. The team that Nikko has signed for the next World Tag Team Title opportunity is none other than The Office’s own Classic Connection.

Levi Shapiro and Buddy Royal, The Classic Connection.

“Buddy and Levi have been doing a great job representing The Office in their time away from Championship Wrestling From Hollywood,” says a swamped Nikko Marquez. “From what Peter Avalon has told me, Classic Connection has been a pillar of contribution on the Championship Wrestling from Arizona roster. Since synergy is a focus of The Office’s re-org, seeing their attention to making other United promotions function shows me that they are deserving of a title opportunity against Reno Scum.”

The matchmaker has spoken and Classic Connection will challenge the United Wrestling Network World Tag Team Champions Reno Scum on February 25th at the Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, CA. Don’t miss it!

Tim Storm Discusses His Future in the NWA

Former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Tim Storm

Every night since December 9, 2017 has been filled with an internal debate for Tim Storm. That is because on that frigid night at CZW: Cage of Death, NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Tim Storm became the former Worlds Heavyweight Champion. On the road to his rematch with new Champion Nick Aldis, Tim Storm was forced into putting his shot at the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship on the line against Jocephus. Storm fought Jocephus in a grueling Empty Arena Match at the Impact Zone in Orlando, Florida and when the dust settled Tim Storm was left laying without his title match to look forward to. So where does that leave the former Worlds Heavyweight Champion?

On Sunday, January 28, 2018, Tim Storm returned to United promotion Championship Wrestling From Hollywood to talk publicly about the internal struggle that has kept him up at night. Is it time to hang it up? See the full story here, courtesy of the National Wrestling Alliance:

The Aldis Crusade comes to the United Wrestling Network

NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis

“This isn’t just my mission,” exclaims NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis, “This is my life.” The holder of the “Ten Pounds of Gold” has been carefully deciding how to make the wrestling world understand that he belongs at the top of the mountain. In doing so, the Champion has created The Aldis Crusade: A series of title defenses over sixty days to prove that his name belongs in the same conversation as past Worlds Heavyweight Champions like Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, and Ric Flair.

The United Wrestling Network is excited to announce that the NWA has chosen United promotions to host four of Aldis’ upcoming title defenses. Beginning on February 11 at the Championship Wrestling From Hollywood Television Event, Aldis will put the “Ten Pounds of Gold” on the line against a premier list of challengers. If still champion, additional scheduled defenses will take place on February 21 at IPW:UK “Parade of Champions,” on March 2 at Xcite Wrestling “6″ and on March 17 at Rocky Mountain Pro.
