Matt Cardona vs. Trevor Murdoch World title match set for NWA Hard Times III

The main event for November's pay-per-view is set.

The rivalry between NWA World Champion Trevor Murdoch and Matt Cardona will continue at November 12th's Hard Times III in New Orleans, Louisiana, as they will meet again for the title.

During Tuesday's NWA Power, Ricky Steamboat was on hand to help make the announcement with Murdoch but Cardona came out instead and revealed the news. 

Cardona had to relinquish the title at June's Alwayz Ready due to a torn biceps which was then put up in a four-way that night. Murdoch won the match to begin his second reign as champion. It was Cardona who ended that first reign, defeating Murdoch on a February edition of Power.

As part of the storyline, William Corgan agreed to give Cardona and all of his entourage future title shots if he agreed to give up the championship at Alwayz Ready.

Murdoch successfully defended the title against Tyrus this past Sunday at NWA 74 while Cardona took a shocking loss to the unheralded Rolando Freeman. Cardona rematched Freeman on Tuesday's show in a no DQ match and lost again, aided by Murdoch.
