TWA HOMECOMIING on Sat June 5th in PLYMOUTH MEETING, PA & TWA TAG-TEAM TITLE TOURNAMENT on Sun June 6TH in VOORHEES, NJ

BRYAN LOGAN TO MISS JUNE TWA SHOWS…

Due to complications from a leg injury suffered at the hands of T.J. Cannon & Bruce Maxwell, the Best Around, at the TWA April 11th show, Bryan Logan will be unable to compete on the TWA shows on June 5th & 6th. After the unprovoked attack, Bryan continued to work hurt and made all of his scheduled bookings not wanting to disappoint promoters and fans, but did further damage to his leg in the process. His doctor strongly recommended letting his leg heal properly to avoid any further complications. While Bryan Logan will not be present June 5th & 6th, the brothers have a back-up plan.

“The Best Around thought they had it all figured out,” Bryan recently told TWA Commissioner Joel Goodhart. “They thought they were going to eliminate their toughest competition in the Tag Team Tournament for the TWA Tag Titles, but they didn’t have all their bases covered; they didn’t count on our brother Nick Logan. When you go after one Logan, you go after all three. Bottom line is their little plan didn’t work, and the Logans will be in the tournament on June 6th and win the TWA Tag Team Titles!”

Nick Logan is an accomplished amateur wrestler as well as a decorated pro. He is a former East Coast Wrestling Association (ECWA) Mid-Atlantic Champion and he is also the 2009 ECWA Super 8 Champion. Nick’s repertoire consists of a blend of both genres as he is a tough grappler but he also incorporates an impactful pro style-offense.

Be there June 5th as Nick will make his TWA debut in the Triple Threat Tag-Team Tournament Preview Match against Logan Brothers perennial foes “The Platinum Poppa” Rob Eckos & Billy Bax w/ Carlton P. Hightower and the popular “The Red, White & Blue Express” The Blue Meanie & Kid America w/ Mini-America and June 6th as he and brother Matt look for the TWA Tag Team Title Championship in the 8-Team single elimination tournament against some of the best tag teams in pro wrestling.
