Bully Ray is a man in demand. When Bully comes knocking, the NWA and Impact answer. The Hall of Famer has two PPV matches over the next two weeks.
First up is an exhibition bout at the NWA 312 PPV in Chicago on Friday, April 7. Bully will compete against Thom Latimer.

Frankly, the booking of this match as a PPV attraction stinks. There is no heated story. Latimer’s NWA World Television Championship is not on the line. Bully and Latimer are actually somewhat cordial to each other with Kamille as the common link. Bully trained Kamille to be a wrestler, and Kamille is married to Latimer.
It is more interesting to note the absence of Matt Cardona from the card. He was last seen engaged in a bitter rivalry with Bully.

- NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship: Tyrus (c) vs. Chris Adonis

Bully’s PPV date with Impact is Sunday, April 16 in Toronto for Rebellion. His feud against Tommy Dreamer is kicking it up a notch for Hardcore War. The Busted Open match at Sacrifice settled nothing, but it did make Dreamer lean into his Innovator of Violence persona. The concept dictates that Bully and Dreamer pick up recruits for a violent team fight.
