Tony Schiavone to call main event of NWA's 70th anniversary show


Tony Schiavone is set to call the main event for the NWA’s 70th anniversary show next month.

It was revealed during the latest episode of Ten Pounds of Gold that Schiavone will be calling the Cody and Nick Aldis match for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight title. Schiavone appeared briefly in a video message confirming the news. It appears to be a deal between the NWA and Major League Wrestling, where Schiavone currently works as a commentator for their television show.

Cody and Aldis have been building their feud for the last several months. Their first confrontation was earlier this month at All In, where Cody defeated Aldis to win the NWA title for the first time. A couple of weeks later, Aldis defeated Doug Williams to officially become the number one contender for the title.

The NWA’s 70th anniversary show will take place on October 21 at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds in Nashville, Tennessee. Information regarding meet and greets will be revealed on Monday.
