This Friday at 3XWrestling the former MWR Wrestler of the Year Jeremy Wyatt will take on the NWA World Champion Adam Pearce in Des Moines at ALL-Play.

Fans have been e-mailing me, texting and calling me the past two weeks with the same question. Can Wyatt actually defeat Pearce for the title?  One fan stated that they saw Pearce had title defenses after the 3XWrestling card and felt like it was just going to be another match . That my friends is normal, the Champion in the past has always had dates lined up to defend the title.

Take a look back On September 17, 1981, when Ric Flair reached the top of the mountain when he beat Dusty Rhodes for his first NWA World Heavyweight Championship. At the time Rhodes was on tour to defend the belt, and after that night Flair was to take over Rhodes title matches.

NWA President Sam Muchnick quickly contacted Flair to let him know that the then champ Rhodes was to defend the title against Harley Race on Oct 2nd at the Checkerdome. Flair always the fighting champion agreed to the take the title defense that the old champion had agreed upon. Therefor the title match was changed to the new NWA World Champ Ric Flair defending the title against Harley Race.

So wrestling fans there you have it, has it been done before? Yes.

How will the NWA brass deal with such a change as the next night in Magnum Pro Wrestling NWA World Champion Adam Pearce is set to defend the NWA title against Tony Cortez?

Will it be NWA World Champion Jer,emy Wyatt defending the title against a former foe in Tony Cortez, or will it be Wyatt vs Pearce 2, or even a three way with the new NWA Champ Wyatt, Pearce and Cortez?
