HAAS NEW TEXAS CHAMPION!
Charlie Haas pinned 2-time Texas champion Michael Faith to become the NWA Texas Heavyweight champion September 4, at NWA Southwest affiliate Panhandle Wrestling Federation in Amarillo, Texas.
After his win, Charlie said the moment was also for his late friend Lance Cade, who was scheduled for the same date to get a title shot but passed away on August 13. He pointed to the sky both in the ring and post match photos
“Let this be known now,” said Haas. “I now hold one of the most honored belts in NWA, and I’m also ranked number five in NWA by Pro Wrestling Illustrated so what that means Phil Shatter, Sheik, and Adam Pearce you’re all within reach now. I am coming for your belts!”
HAAS vs. FAITH for Texas Heavyweight Title
Two-time NWA Texas Champion Michael ‘The Largeador” Faith will make his first title defense September 4 versus the challenge of former WWE star Charlie Haas at NWA-SW’s Panhandle Wrestling affiliate in Amarillo, Texas.
Faith, who weighs 340 pounds, is one of the biggest wrestlers in Texas but extremely agile for his size. He is so agile he has toured Japan many times over the past two years as an American beast. He defeated the Texas legend Kevin Northcutt in 2009, and just recently Chad Thomas who won a match over Lance Cade in his final NWA appearance.
Cade was suppose to get a Texas title shot but passed away before the opportunity so his close friend Haas said he will win for both of them in Amarillo. “I don’t care how big Faith…..he has what belongs to us (Cade) and I am coming for it.”
