NWA-Crockett-Cup-2022

Two new champions were crowned on the second night of NWA's Crockett Cup 2022. 

Homicide captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship, defeating Austin Aries, Darius Lockhart, and Colby Corino in a four-way to win the vacant title. 

The Junior Heavyweight title had gone unused since William Patrick Corgan purchased the NWA intellectual property and trademarks in 2017.

Earlier in Sunday's show, Jax Dane defeated Anthony Mayweather to win the NWA National Championship. 

Dane and Mayweather wrestled twice at the event, with Mayweather retaining his title in the first bout. Dane then attacked Mayweather, before announcing that he was cashing in his Champions Series title shot in an immediate rematch. 

In the show's main event, Matt Cardona retained the NWA World's Heavyweight Championship with a DQ victory over Nick Aldis. Special referee Jeff Jarrett disqualified Aldis after believing that Mickie James had given Jarrett a low blow while interfering on Aldis's behalf. It was actually Chelsea Green interfering on Cardona's behalf that instigated the low blow, leading to a Dusty finish where Aldis had seemingly won the title, only to have Jarrett overturn the decision. 

The Hex retained the NWA World Women’s Tag Team Championship, Kamille retained the NWA World Women's Championship, and Tyrus retained the NWA Television Championship in the show's other title bouts. 

The Briscoes also won the 2022 Crockett Cup tournament at Sunday's show, defeating Doug Williams and Harry Smith in the finals.
