For the first time in more than 37 years, the NWA National Championship returns to Georgia.
Champion James Storm will return to Viral Pro Wrestling on August 10. “The Cowboy” will have the NWA National Heavyweight Championship in tow as he puts it on the line against EVOLVE Superstar Anthony Henry.
Last seen on the WWE Network in an intense battle with Arturo Ruas, now turns his attention to “Infection IV’,” the biggest show off the year for Viral Pro Wrestling, where he will take his shot at Storm in an effort to become the National Champion.
It also helps that Henry has home field advantage. “Infection IV” emanates from Thomson,GA – roughly 30 minutes away from Henry’s hometown of Augusta.
No matter who leaves Viral Pro’s “Infection IV” with the National title, both men will be making history. The last time the NWA National Championship was contested in the Central Savannah River Area in Georgia was 1982. Tommy “Wildfire” Rich and Buzz Sawyer, en route to the “Last Battle of Atlanta,” traded the title during their violent feud.
Nearly four decades later, the National title returns to Georgia. The match between Storm and Henry was already signed in July when the National Wrestling Alliance sanctioned the bout for Storm’s championship.
The NWA National Championship is the latest accolade collected by James Storm. A former Impact Wrestling World Champion and multiple-time tag-team champion across the globe, Storm won the National title back on June 29 by defeating Colt Cabana.
Henry also brings an impressive resume to “Infection IV.” A former Pro Wrestling Xperience Heavyweight Champion, Henry – as much a tag-team specialist as Storm – is a former EVOLVE Tag-Team Champion with his WorkHorsemen partner, JD Drake.
The two now leave partners behind and collide in Thomson, GA on August 10 at Viral Pro Wrestling’s “Infection IV” for the NWA National Heavyweight Championship.
