Chris Adonis Addresses His NWA Worlds Title Match Against Tyrus


Chris Adonis will challenge Tyrus for the NWA Worlds Championship at NWA 312, and he recently spoke about the bout coming to fruition on the “Insight With Chris Van Vliet” podcast.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:


On the upcoming NWA Championship match against Tyrus: “Yeah. You know, Chris, I mean, quite frankly, we spoke it into existence. A lot of people are wondering what the heck is Chris Adonis, Chris Masters doing back here. But yes, we did speak it into existence. From my perspective, I feel like I’ve been one of the best wrestlers in the game for the last year. And it’s just taken everybody else this long to kind of catch up. So like, I’ve seen this all in my head and it doesn’t surprise me. But it is nice to have hard work pay off. And you know, based on our last interview that I’ve put everything into professional wrestling and being the best professional wrestler, and to see it pay dividends in the form of a world title match with Tyrus on pay-per-view, is pretty cool.”

On Tyrus being the NWA World Heavyweight Champion: “Well, here’s the thing. What as he calls them, the trolls, what I will give him is this. What the, as he would call them, the trolls, don’t understand, is Tyrus does love professional wrestling. He does have a love for [it]. But what he doesn’t understand is the trolls. It’s not they’re not woke, it’s not a right or left thing, it’s a professional wrestling thing. And quite frankly, the wrestling fans are resentful of a guy who comes in to, or back into professional wrestling, as kind of, say, a side hustle. Or, you know, let’s put it this way. If he lost the NWA title, he’d be just fine because he’d be out there hosting Greg Gutfeld, he’d be doing his thing on Fox News. And you know, the wrestling audience, what it comes down to is they want the best wrestler in that position, and they want the best wrestler holding the most prestigious title in professional wrestling. And quite frankly, they don’t think that Tyrus fits the bill.”
