The National Wrestling Alliance issued the following press release:
Mexico City, MX (October 25, 2008) – Centro Banamex Convention Center was
a history making site as it hosted the NWA™ Worlds Heavyweight Championship
match featuring Adam Pearce Vs. Blue Demon, Jr. In the end, Blue Demon, Jr. won
the famous “10 lbs. of Gold” in a very controversial fashion.
“I passed out while Demon had me in a Half Boston Crab and when I woke up I was told that I was under the rope and the Referee had stopped that match. This is clearly against the NWA Rule Book and I will be taking this up with Trobich. Demon, you are not the NWA Worlds Champion,” said former champion Adam Pearce.
“I think Pearce has a case. I’ve reviewed the footage and he is in the right, his arm is under the rope, but in the NWA, the Referee’s decision if final,” states Ruben Zamora of NWA Latin American Relations.
Blue Demon, Jr. is the first Mexican and Masked Wrestler to ever win the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship in the six decades the National Wrestling Alliance has been in business.
