A new World Television Champion will be crowned.

Since August of 2021, Tyrus had been reigning as NWA World Television Champion. After a year with the belt, Tyrus has vacated the title. He is scheduled to get another shot at the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship at Hard Times 3 when he competes against Matt Cardona and the current champion Trevor Murdoch.

NWA’s Kyle Davis provided an update on the TV Title picture and revealed that ten wrestlers will be competing in two separate five-person matches. The winners of those respective bouts will go one-on-one for the championship. The following names are in the talent pool for the TV Title:

  • Ricky Morton
  • Jax Dane
  • Anthony Mayweather
  • Marshe Rockett
  • A.J. Cazana
  • Caprice Coleman
  • Jordan Clearwater
  • The Pope
  • Rush Freeman
  • Max The Impaler
