*** NWF BREAKING NEWS ***
Diamond Dallas Page has officially left the NWF. No word on where he’s headed, but he may be stalking King Kong Bundy & Rick Rude. While the fans did take to DDP, who worked with a bunch of different injuries during his tenure, he was never a big hit in the locker room. Most of the other wrestlers saw him as self-centered and egotistical.
The Samoan Island Tribe has been unceremoniously dumped by Sir Oliver Humperdink! It took all of seven weeks for Humperdink to determine that the Samoans would never live up to the potential he originally saw in them. Humperdink disappeared after the March 28th show in Cleveland, and could not be reached for further comment. Samu & Alofa have decided to remain in the NWF, and hope to have an impact on the tag-team division on their own.
In more shocking news, the Riviera Playboys and Sherri Martel are leaving the area as well! The Playboys were cult favorites and one of the most flamboyant acts on the NWF scene. Recently, they were even enjoying a little mainstream fan support. They leave with an overall record of 18-18-1, but had a big year in 2007, when they were ranked in the Top 5 for several months, garnered a couple title shots and led all NWF tag-teams in wins with 14.
STEEL BELT CLASH News!
It looks like the Heenan Family will make one last stab at the NWF Title! Curt Hennig has been named as Steve Williams’ next challenger! That title match will take place in Erie, PA the week after the CLASH – but you know Bobby Heenan will try to do some damage to the champ beforehand! Doc will team with Ted DiBiase to take on Ray Stevens and Heenan himself! Both fan favorites will be looking to tee off on “the Brain” - assuming he ever tags in!
As expected, The Sheik will defend the North American Championship against Red Bastien! Red handed the Syrian madman a rare loss (by DQ) in their first meeting last week! Can NWF stalwart Bastien finally end the Unholy Reign of Terror?
It’s the match the Hennig family hoped would never have to take place! The family struggle between father and son will wind up in the ring! Larry Hennig will face his son Curt Hennig one-on-one for the first time! Larry had promised he would not step into the ring against his son, but now he feels he has no choice!
As previously announced, the biggest special attraction match in company history is signed, sealed and delivered! Andre the Giant will face Big John Studd inside a 15’ high steel cage!
It’s official! For the first time since April 2006, Harley Race and Nick Bockwinkel will meet in a singles action to headline the show! These two started out as a team when the NWF began in January 2003, but it didn’t last long. Bockwinkel turned on Race after just two months, and the two have been bitter enemies ever since! It’s a huge main event between the two biggest rivals in NWF history to cap off what will certainly be a great show in Buffalo!
