NWA 74 adds EC3 debut, Angelina Love vying for title shot, and more!

NWA 74 is scheduled to be a two-night extravaganza to celebrate the 74th anniversary of the National Wrestling Alliance. There are a lot of spots to fill for Night 1 on August 27 and Night 2 on August 28 at Chase’s Khorassan Ballroom in St. Louis, MO. The most surprising addition is EC3 debuting for the NWA.

EC3 is booked to do battle against big, strong Mims.

NWA is bringing back the Mildred Burke Invitational gauntlet match to earn a shot at the NWA Women’s World Championship. Several interesting names are jumping in. None is more accomplished than six-time Knockouts champion Angelina Love.

The most intriguing competitor of the bunch is Samantha Starr. She is a third-generation wrestler as the daughter of Sam Houston and Baby Doll. Starr’s mother will be present for support at NWA 74.

Other participants in the Burke Invitational include KiLynn King, Tootie Lynn, Missa Kate, Max The Impaler, Madi Wrenkowski, and Jennacide.

The NWA 74 card currently stands as:

Night 1 (August 27)

  • NWA Women’s World Championship: Kamille (c) vs. Taya Valkyrie
