— Former WWE star Big Daddy V is now going under the name “King V.” The NWA sent out a press release noting his new ring name. He is scheduled to grapple at an NWA show on Saturday, October 4th at the RMB Fairgrounds in Robstown, Texas.

— Ric Flair, who was originally scheduled to receive the NWA Hall of Fame award alongside a number of other former NWA stars back in June will finally be receiving the award at the same October 4th NWA show in Robstown, Texas. “I’m happy that we are able to present our Hall of Fame honor to Ric in person. We were worried that he would never be able to display our medal with the rest of his accolades. It also pleases me to know that Ric is very enthusiastic to accept it. I’d also like to thank the Gillespie Agency for their cooperation in making this presentation a reality,” said NWA Executive Director Robert K. Trobich. Flair was originally scheduled to attend the June event, but WWE prevented it from happening. {RIC FLAIR TO ACCEPT HIS NWA™ HALL OF FAME AWARD}
