This afternoon, a “breaking news” video announcement was posted on YouTube by the National Wrestling Alliance. On the video, NWA Executive Director Robert ETrobich said that effective immediately, Christian Cage & Team 3D have been stripped Of their respective NWA World Titles.
NWA has officially ended its working relationship with TNA Wrestling, which has existed since 2002. There have been reports for months that the partnership was coming to an end. TNA recently had new TNA World, Tag Team and X-Division title belts created. It is expected they will be introduced at this week’s television tapings.
At tonight’s TNA Sacrifice PPV, Team 3D retained their titles and Christian Cage lost his title to Kurt Angle in a 3-way match that also involved Sting. Neither match was sanctioned by the NWA and neither match outcome has any standing on the vacated NWA World and NWA World Tag Team Championships.
