NWA Champion Trevor Murdoch Talks Title Bout Becoming Three-Way Match


The main event of Hard Times 3 in November was supposed to be a one-on-one affair for the Ten Pounds of Gold, but oh, how things have changed. NWA Champion Trevor Murdoch was originally scheduled to face Matt Cardona for the coveted strap until Tyrus cashed in his Lucky Seven title opportunity to make the bout a three-way dance.

Murdoch defeated Tyrus at NWA 74 last month, but will now face that challenge once again, with Cardona in the mix as well. He spoke about the challenge that faces him on a recent episode of “This Is The NWA” weekly podcast.


You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

Murdoch on the new dynamic of a multi-man match: “Gentlemen, I’m actually excited because in a Triple Threat match, it’s a thinking man’s game. Because you’re constantly worrying about two guys, whereas originally, I had to worry about Matt Cardona. Now I’ve gotta worry about Tyrus, but they’ve also gotta worry about each other. I’ve realized, I think I found a chink in Tyrus’ armor. When I beat him at [NWA] 74, I had to outsmart him. I hit him with three bulldogs. I’ve never hit anybody with that many bulldogs, let alone wanted to, because that takes as much out of me as it does them sometimes when I do that maneuver. But I beat him. With Cardona, there’s a certain amount of revenge that I have for Cardona that I’m gonna get, and hopefully I will get my one-on-one opportunity at some point in that match.”

How he views both his opponents: “Both of them each have a right, I guess, an argument to get a world championship opportunity. But at the end of the day, when I’m standing tall, no one can say s**t. You can’t say anything because not only did I beat Tyrus, not once but twice, but I will also beat Cardona. What can you say after that? This is almost an opportunity for me to cement my legacy. Whereas most people are complaining and b*tching and pissing and moaning, I’m certainly welcoming the opportunity to prove myself.”
