There will be a Best-of-Seven series of matches between Adam Pearce and the defending National Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight Champion Colt Cabana. The following is the official press release:
Cabana ready for Pearce’s “Seven Levels of Hate”
Champion has requirements of his own
TOKYO, Japan — April 24, 2012 — After taking a few days to fully digest the challenge issued by former four-time NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce (viewable at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJJuX1254Uw), current two-time champion Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana has issued his response to Pearce’s call for a final Best-of-Seven series: “You want it, you got it!”
Cabana, currently on tour in Japan with Pro Wrestling NOAH, had some firm comments for his nemesis and former friend. “I think Adam Pearce is sick,” said Cabana. “He is obsessed with this vendetta, and now he’s taking it too far. But if he thinks putting his career on the line is going to change my outlook, he’s wrong. Sometimes a man has to lose everything to truly appreciate anything.” Cabana has twice defeated Pearce to take the legendary NWA championship and is the only man to pin Pearce when the title is at stake. “I’ve got nothing more to prove against Adam,” Cabana added. “I’ve beaten him twice for the ‘ten pounds of gold’, and I can do it again. He knows it; I know it; the wrestling world knows it. We could wrestle a hundred times, and a hundred times I win. I will beat him four-straight in this best-of-seven.”
Cabana also had a requirement of his own for this colossal war-ending series. “I know Adam better than anyone is the wrestling industry. He’s hurt; he’s desperate; he’s against the wall. And because of that I know he will literally do ANYTHING to hurt me. And I’m game, the fans know I’m game, and I know his mind. If he really wants to do this, it’s gotta be like this: Since each match is for the title, then each must have a SPECIAL STIPULATION. That way we’re both on level ground and we both have the same advantages. That way Pearce can’t sneak anything past anyone.”
Pearce, through his manager Stu Stone, immediately accepted this caveat without comment and the first series dates in this monumental NWA feud have been set!
