BREAKER’S TOUGHEST CHALLENGER???
Breaker Morant has quietly entered the New Year as Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) Heavyweight Champion. Breaker began his title reign despised by the fans, but slowly ingratiated himself to them and has earned their respect and support. Since winning the championship, Morant has defeated every challenger, including “Hitman” Tony Stetson ,
“Mr. Wrestling” Steve Corino, “The Beast” Glen Osbourne , “Midnight Idol” Nicky Benz and Damian Dragon. He has pinned every opponent, except one, “Beautiful” Bobby Shields!
On September 25th in Voorhees, NJ, after Shields defeated Luch Libre star Saber Cat, he waited in the wings and watched Morant defend his title successfully against Damian Dragon. Following the match, Shields moved quickly to make a statement when he ambushed the champion with a ringside chair. Morant immediately challenged Shields to the November 20th event.
The Nov 20th match was ruled a double-count out and it was the first title defense that Morant was not able to win although, of course, he still retained the title. In order to make sure there is a clear winner, TWA Commissioner Joel Goodhart signed a rematch for the TWA Wrestles Autism show on Sun, Jan 30th, 2011, this time a Lumberjack Match, where “lumberjacks” will surround the ring and make sure both Morant and Shields stay inside the ring.
Shields, who made great strides in his career last year, says that 2011 will be his breakout year, starting with winning the TWA Heavyweight championship.
Morant, quiet but confident, says he knows he can beat Shields and will continue his journey as TWA Heavyweight Champion as he nears the one year mark of his title reign.
Be there in Voorhees , NJ on Jan 30th for this classic title encounter!

AUTISM SPEAKS/AD COUNCIL PSA: CLOSER TO HOME
WHAT IS AUTISM?
Autism is a general term used to describe a group of complex developmental brain disorders known as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD)… one in every 110 children is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. An estimated 1.5 million individuals in the U.S. and tens of millions worldwide are affected by autism…The vast majority of cases of autism are idiopathic, which means the cause is unknown.

ABOUT AUTISM SPEAKS?
Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the nation’s largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We are proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish and look forward to continued successes in the years ahead.
