The Gathering of the Champions proved to be a night that no one will forget.
The crowning of a new NWA National Heavyweight Champion made it a night to remember for Vordell Walker.
Walker, who had been chasing the NWA National Championship and the now former champion Damien Wayne, finally had Wayne where he wanted him: in a steel cage.
Walker and Wayne had fought previously at NWA Southern All-Star Wrestling with Walker not getting the outcome he fought so hard for. However, after getting Wayne in a steel cage, Walker knew that it was going to be another hard fight on Friday night.
Both men fought hard to show that neither were ready to give up. However, Walker would walk away with the victory and the championship that he worked so hard to gain.
At the end of the match, Walker would have his hand held high with his newly won title and showed his true emotion on what he did and how long of a road that he would have had to travel. But Walker would show that a champion is not above giving thanks for the hard work and for the backing of the fans. Damien Wayne showed true grace with even after losing the NWA National Heavyweight Championship, he would walk back into the ring and into the cage and shake the hand of Vordell Walker.
The Gathering of Champions was also a night of amazing matches for the fans of Millersville, Tennessee.
Seeing before the main event, Chase Stevens and “Iron Man” Rob Conway battled it out in the ring for a thirty minute time limit draw. Conway and Stevens showcased their experience and showed that their talent is what champions were made of.
With each of the other matches that were on The Gathering of the Champions, each person that walked to the ring showed that the night was made for dreams and each of these wrestlers were living the dream.
