Wednesday October 27th in Cardiff, Wales saw Psycho Steve crowned the NWA-UK Junior Heavyweight Champion as he was victorious in the Last Man Standing Riot Match. Hugh Mungus was as mean as ever.

Friday October 29th say us return to Mote Park Leisure Centre in Maidstone, Kent. In a Submission Match, Americas Jack Thriller overcame Danny Garnell. Fergal Devitt retained the NWA British Commonwealth Title over Danny Williams and Psycho Steve also retained his NWA-UK Junior Heavyweight title. Chamera and Sean ‘Maxer’ Brennan overcame JP Monroe and Jezebel in Mixed Tag Action. ‘Son of Abdullah’ defeated Paul Tracey in an Anything Goes Match to become the new NWA-UK Hammerlock Heavyweight Champion. There was a clause in the contract however that if ‘Son of Abdullah’ was victorious he had to give Tracey a rematch the following night at the Stour Centre in Ashford, Kent. However ‘Son of Abdullah’ was already booked to take on Tracey’s tag team partner Fergal Devitt at Ashford for the NWA British Commonwealth Title and was booked to take on Psycho Steve on the last night of the tour in Steve’s hometown of Rugby in Warwickshire. Tracey and Devitt claimed that ‘Son of Abdullah’ would have to wrestle twice the next night in Ashford. However the new NWA-UK Champion responded that rather than wrestle twice that he would take the Irish team on in a 2 on 1 Handicap Match in a ‘Winner Takes All Match’ – if ‘S.O.A.’ pinned either Devitt or Tracey he won the NWA British Commonwealth Title but if Devitt or Tracey pinned ‘S.O.A.’, the Irish Team would not only have Devitt’s NWA British Commonwealth Title, but also they would have the NWA-UK Hammerlock Heavyweight Title back in their camp. The Irish accepted these stipulations and the match was on for Ashford the following night. In 1995 Andre ‘Sledgehammer’ Baker battled Dan ‘The Beast’ Severn in New Jersey, USA, for the NWA World Heavyweight Title – in the main event at our recent show in Maidstone one of Baker’s top talents squared off against one of Severn’s top talents when ‘Vigilante’ Johnny Moss battled CJ Otis.

There was a clause with the NWA-UK Hammerlock Heavyweight Title however that ‘S.O.A’ had to give either Tracey or Devitt a NWA-UK Hammerlock Title rematch within 30 days. ‘S.O.A.’ was booked to take on Psycho Steve on the final night of the tour and was then scheduled to leave the UK and wrestle in Australia so he since he was unable to defend the title within the designated 30 days, Tracey and Devitt demanded that ‘Son of Abdullah’ be stripped of the NWA-UK Hammerlock Heavyweight Title. Referee Mike Hunter obliged and stripped ‘S.O.A.’ of the title and took the Championship belt from him leaving the Ashford audience very unhappy at the outcome.
