"Capital Carnage II"
Saturday, November 22nd - Topeka, KS
"Capital Carnage II" started with the entire NWA-KS locker room present for ten tolls of the ringbell to commemorate the passing of Janice Estes, wife of Kansas promotor Steve Estes.
The show then featured acting NWA Representative, "Chatterbox" Chad Phillips reading the folowing statement from the NWA-KS Board of Directors:
From: NWA Kansas Board of Directors
Due to the fact that NWA Kansas Heavyweight champion, "Mr. Saturday Night" Michael Barry has missed two consecutive title defenses and compounded by the fact the title has not been defended in the allotted 30 day time period, the NWA Kansas Board of Directors has no choice other than to strip Michael Barry of his championship and render the NWA Kansas championship vacant.
At this time I would like to ask the #1 contender for that title to join me in the ring, so that he may hear the next part of this statement, which pertains to him. Ladies and gentlemen, the man who was to compete against Michael Barry for the NWA Kansas Heavyweight title tonight: Griz
The NWA Kansas Board of Directors realizes that Griz, the #1 contender for the KS Heavyweight title, has been unfairly cheated of his scheduled title shot tonight; however the NWA-KS Board of Directors cannot see fit to award a prestigious NWA State Heavyweight Championship to a competitor based on a champion's forfeiture of his title.
Therefore, stipulations have been made so that tonight, the vacated NWA Kansas Heavyweight Championship will be decided. Tonight's event will now feature a Gauntlet for the Gold match and a new NWA Kansas Heavyweight champion will be crowned here in Topeka. The competitors in that Gaunlet for the Gold match will include winners of tonight's matches.
Before the final part of this statement is read, the NWA-KS Board of Directors would request one more athlete to join me in the ring; another man who the Board of Directors feel was unfairly cheated out of a deserved NWA title match tonight. Ladies & gentlemen please help me welcome to the ring one half of the Midwest Express, "Mr. Dynamic" Mark Sterling.
After an extensive investigation, led by myself, "Chatterbox" Chad Phillips, along with other members of the NWA Kansas Board of Directors, we have come to the conclusion that the other half of the Midwest Express, "The Specialist" Mason Hunter, is unable to appear tonight due to injuries caused at the hands of Strength In Numbers, in an attempt to eliminate the Midwest Express from competing in the tournament to fill the vacant NWA Midwest Tag Team titles.
Therefore three different courses of action will be taken to rectify this situation. First, Strength In Numbers, as a whole, is to be fined $1500, and each individual member of the group will be fined an additional $250 each, for their roles in the assault. Second, in the interest of fairness, "Mr. Dynamic" Mark Sterling, will be offered a choice as to which title he will compete for at "Capital Carnage II".
Mr. Sterling may decide to maintain his team's position in the semi-final round of the NWA Midwest Tag Team title tournament, however if he chooses to do so, will not be permitted to name a replacement partner, and must compete alone in the tournament. If Mr. Sterling chooses not to remain in the tag team title tournament, our third and final course of action is to be be implemented. "Mr. Dynamic" Mark Sterling will be allowed a place in the Gauntlet for the Gold match to crown a new NWA Kansas Heavyweight champion. This will cause a predetermined "wild card" team to replace the Midwest Express in the tournament , and the Midwest Express to be named as #1 contenders to the NWA Midwest Tag Team titles after the conclusion of the tournament to fill the vacant titles.
This statement would serve to set the tone for the evening as only the winners of each match were allowed entry into the Gauntelt for the Gold match to crown a new NWA-KS Champion. For full match results from NWA-KS "Capital Carnage II" visit the Results page.
