On the first a Power of Season 2, they announced that every tournament match will have a time limit of 6:05 and both competitors will be eliminated if there isn’t a fall within that time. 

I like the idea of time limits for a TV title, but 6:05 is just a little too cutesy honestly. 

Last night in a qualifying match to enter the tournament, Zicky Dice beat C.W. Anderson and Sal Rinauro in a 3-way in less than 3 minutes (C.W. looks exactly the same as during his ECW days so I guess that's the advantage of looking 50 when you're 20).  That was a long match by NWA standards.  Last night's show was the longest ever at about 70 minutes, and there was maybe 8 minutes of wrestling on it.  

Next week the tournament will begin with Colt Cabana vs. The Question Mark and Ricky Starks vs. Eddie Kingston. 

NWA World champion Nick Aldis is also in this tournament for some reason.


There is a great Ric Flair promo where he puts over basically the entire roster, including stating his desire to become the first man to hold both the world's heavyweight and television titles at the some time. If it's good enough for Flair...

Was that in Georgia? I know he challenged Ron Garvin when he was TV champ there.

About 10 years later the value of the NWA title was far less, but after Barry Windham beat Muta for the belt at Super Brawl he cut a promo saying he wanted to win all championships.
