Chris Adonis Wonders Why He Is Not On The NWA Hard Times III Card, Talks His Love Of The NWA


NWA superstar Chris Adonis recently spoke with Steve Fall from NBC Sports Boston about a wide range of topics, including how he feels about not being on the Hard Times III pay-per-view card, whether he thinks he will be added, and how much he loves working for the NWA as they have let him showcase a different side of his persona. Highlights from the interview are below.

Says he is not sure if he is on the Hard Times card:

“I think they just announced the main event, which is going to be Matt Cardona taking on Trevor Murdoch, who’s the NWA World Champion. I think that’s gonna be a heck of a match, and I still think we’re in the process of announcing matches, but I’m not completely even sure what I’m doing on the card at this point, or if I’m on the card. But hopefully. You think I’m joking, but I ran this through all of upper management just a few days ago. So [laughs] I don’t know. It’s fine. Can’t be on everything. But either way, it’s gonna be a good card in New Orleans, so I would encourage everybody to check it out on FITE TV.”

Says it hurts being left off the card since he considers himself one of the best in the business:

“It definitely affects [me]. I think most of us who get into this business love it or have a passion for it. So for me, yeah, it does affect me. It hurts to not be on the card, but also from a standpoint of, I honestly think I’m one of the best in-ring talents in the game today. You can watch any of my work over the last year, and you can see that. I’ve delivered every single time when it comes to storytelling to physicality to athleticism. Then you factor in everything you just said, the star power and name recognition, so that’s where at the end of the day, I end up having questions. I’m like, I can be used to a certain degree as far as my star power in terms of to help sell a pay-per-view or whatnot over other guys. So it is what is. But to answer your question, yes, it doesn’t affect me. If it didn’t, then that would be an even bigger problem, I should get out of the wrestling business. But I think all of us love it and have passion for it. But if you watch any of my work over the last work, I promise you I am one of the best in the business today. Check out a match and tell me otherwise.”

Loves the NWA and is happy they have helped him showcase a different side from his WWE days:

“I love NWA and I love what we’re doing there. I love what we represent, and I’ve looked at NWA as a great opportunity for me, as a place that I can perform, a platform where I can show the world who I am, who’s a very different performer from the Chris Masters that a lot of people saw earlier in his career.”
