|ZBYSZKO RE-NAMED AWA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
Minneapolis, MN - February, 5, 2008 - While the nation is turning
out in record numbers for what's been called "Super Tuesday", the
management team of the AWA has announced that the AWA World Heavyweight
Championship, stripped from Zero-1's Masato Tanaka in late 2007 due to
irresponsible leadership by the fledging Zero-1 MAX's Yoshi Nakamura,
has been rightfully returned to "The Living Legend" Larry Zbyszko.
Zbyszko started rallying for what he claimed was rightfully his
since mid-2007. The situation heated up immediately after the then AWA
Board of Directors stripped Masato Tanaka of the World's title.
Zbyszko, through his newly named "representative" Mister Saint Laurent
and legal representation, started filing documentation, to the new AWA
Management Team, proving he had never lost the title in 1991 when Verne
Gagne's AWA entered into bankruptcy. After considerable deliberation
and review of the bankruptcy file from the early 90's, the AWA agreed
with Zbyszko that he did indeed never actually loose the title.
Accordingly, Larry Zbyszko is once again the recognized and current AWA
World Heavyweight Champion.
As the celebration started with Zbyszko and "Team Vision"
(Zbyszko's running pals' "Not Cocky" Chasyn Rance and Mister Saint
Laurent), the AWA also announced that Zbyszko's first title defense
would be April 18th in Fayetteville, West Virginia against two of the
top 10 contenders in a 3-way dance.
