Author: CWF Mid-Atlantic
An action packed weekend is planned for at the Carolina Sports Arena in Burlington, NC as the AWA is set to crown their World Light Heavyweight Champion. A single elimination 24-man tournament is set to kick off on Friday, July 29th, and conclude on Saturday, July 30th. AWA President Dale Gagne will be on hand to award the championship belt to the winner.
The first announcement of half the field has already had many fans requesting tickets to see some many great wrestlers from around the world in their first appearance in this area. Now the remaining twelve participants names have been released including the huge bombshell announcement of who would represent the home state of North Carolina.
Shannon Moore, a world class light heavyweight competitor and fresh off of world-wide television, was the suprise representative. A vetern of WCW & WWE and wildly popular in his home state of North Carolina from his beginning days in the legendary OMEGA promotion, Moore has quickly added to the interest in one of the most impressive light heavyweight tournaments ever put together.
