NWA Smoky Mountain returns to Kingsport, TN on Saturday, August 4th at the Legendary Kingsport Civic Auditorium (1550 Fort Henry Dr.) for Fire on the Mountain… Bell time is 8:00 PM and doors will open at 7:15 PM… Get there early because this event is going to be a sell out!

This event will feature 2 HUGE Main Events… NWA Smoky Mountain’s Chase Owens will attempt to make history, when he takes on The NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Champion, Kevin Douglas for the title… Nobody from the Mountain Empire region has EVER held an NWA World Title of any kind. These men have met before with Douglas defeating Owens in a tournament in Charlotte, NC last October… Since that time the Bristol native, Chase Owens has wrestled across the country, including an appearance on WWE Smackdown. Owens has battled his way back to become the #1 Contender for the title and he now faces off with Douglas in his home area, with the pride of an entire region on his back.

In the other Main Event, NWA Smoky Mountain Heavyweight Champion, Jason “The Gift” Kincaid will put his title on the line against “The American Wolf” Davey Richards… Richards and his fellow Team Ambition members, have seemingly waged war against the NWA… Kincaid has stepped up to stop Richards in his tracks. Will he succeed or will Richards end up with one of the NWA’s most prestigious titles.

The last time Team Ambition came to the area, they orchestrated a post-match attack on NWA Legend, Ricky Morton and Chase Owens… With Morton wrestling outside the Smoky Mountain area that night and Chase challenging for the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Title, who will Richards and company target next?

Here is the card so far:

NWA World Junior Heavyweight Title Match
Representing NWA Lone Star from Texas,
Champion, “Modern Day Hero” Kevin Douglas
Representing NWA Smoky Mountain from Northeast TN,
Challenger, “The Real Deal” Chase Owens

NWA Smoky Mountain Heavyweight Title Match
Former ROH World Champion, Davey Richards
NWA Smoky Mountain Champion, Jason Kincaid

NWA Tennessee Tag Team Title Match
Champions, The Illuminati (Tony Givens & Chris Richards)
w/ Rob Knight
Challengers, The Party Army (Jeff Connelly & Keith Knox)

NWA vs. Team Ambition
Zac Vincent
Tony Kozina

More Matches will be announced soon featuring:
Johnny Knieval
“The Xcception” Josh Crawford
“The Blackanese Assassin” Menace
& More!

CHIKARA’s King of Trios 2012
The Biggest Tournament in Pro-Wrestling!

It’s the big one. King of Trios. A tournament so big, so outrageously awesome, that the entire world of professional wrestling cannot help but turn and look when it rolls around. So far, 7 of the participating 16 trios have been made public, and the line-up is already stacked! Take a look at just some of the teams heading to Easton, PA for the eagerly-anticipated weekend of September 14 – 15 – 16:

1) THE EXTREME TRIO assembled by Tommy Dreamer represents the spirit of ECW, and Jerry Lynn (who retires later this year) and Too Cold Scorpio will make this epic threesome the team to beat this year!

2) Wrestling’s Most Dangerous Trio, F.I.S.T., will be a force to reckoned with as the configuration of Chuck Taylor, Johnny Gargano and Icarus are more than formidable!

3) They’re creepy in every sense of the word – and The Batiri are looking to cast their spooky shadow over all of wrestling, as Obariyon, Kobald and Kodama look to take the KOT crown in Easton!

4) The ever-popular Spectral Envoy were slowed down by a serious injury to Frightmare last year, but the frenetic ball of kinetic energy has bounced back and joined with Hallowicked and UltraMantis Black in their quest to become Trios champs!

5) It’s been a breakout year for rookie sensation “Mr. Touchdown” Mark Angelosetti, who captains a hand-picked team comprised of his step-cousin-in-law Dasher Hatfield and Matt Classic onto the biggest playing field of all: King of Trios 2012!

6) An injury prevented Commando Bolshoi from joining the stars of JWP at December’s JoshiMania event – but she’s all healed up and will partner with powerhouse Tsubasa Kuragaki and joshi sparkplug Kaori Yoneyama in September!

7) A trio representing Ring of Honor should come as no surprise – given that Nick and Matt Jackson, The Young Bucks, are our current Campeones de Parejas! They team with “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett, one of the company’s highest-ranked competitors!

8) Our Director of Fun, Wink Vavassuer, put his complex “CHIKARAbermetrics” system to work and came up with a trio of ants that he things make for an optimal threesome! Even though Soldier Ant has been at war with The Swarm for most of Season 11, he has now been assigned the partners of deviANT and combatANT!

9) When the Greatest Female Wrestler of All Time calls and says it is time to put the trio back together, former Campeones de Parejas Jigsaw and his mentor “The Master of a Thousand Holds” Mike Quackenbush aren’t about to object! See Manami Toyota reunite with her partners from last year’s King of Trios in what is scheduled to be her only 2012 appearance in the United States!

10) Think of some REALLY scary dudes. You’re thinking of The Warlord and The Barbarian, right? Yeah, us too. Then imagine that, despite all odds, that Meng is coming out of retirement. Just for one weekend. And he wants to team up with those two guys. The Powers of Pain? The Faces of Fear? No. These three men are The Faces of Pain, and someone is in for a world of hurt come September 14th.
