On this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, QT Marshall attacked Wardlow with a low blow and a brutal chair shot to the head, thereby helping Powerhouse Hobbs capture the TNT Championship by powerbombing Mr. Mayhem off the stage.
Following the match, Marshall took to Twitter to share a screenshot of his conversation with Hobbs on iMessage from 2020. It was before Hobbs had signed with AEW, and Marshall claimed to have had his back since then. He wrote:
“Long term storytelling- I’ve always looked out for @TrueWillieHobbs”

“NATIONAL WRESTLING ALLIANCE AND MADAME ZUZU’S PARTNER TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE HIGHLAND PARK COMMUNITY FOUNDATION WITH NWA 312, BOOK SIGNING
Highland Park, IL – The National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and Madame Zuzu’s are partnering together to raise money for the families and victims of the July 4th mass shooting with a series of professional wrestling shows centered around the pay-per-view titled NWA 312.
The events begin at Madame Zuzu’s with a book signing on Thursday, April 6 followed by professional wrestling at Studio One on Friday, April 7 and Saturday, April 8.
The Highland Park Community Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports local programs and initiatives, which includes a special fund for the victims and families impacted by the July 4th shooting.
NWA 312 will feature some of the best wrestlers in the NWA, including NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion Tyrus, NWA National Champion Cyon, NWA Women’s World Champion Kamille and many more. Madame Zuzu’s, a local plant-based tea shop and community space, has already hosted a recent concert to raise funds for the victims of the shooting and is looking forward to this next event to support these families and help the community heal.
“This is a very important cause for me. This neighborhood is my home and I want to do whatever I can to help out,” said NWA President and co-owner of Madame Zuzu’s Billy Corgan. “NWA 312 will showcase some of the best professional wrestling talent in the world, and we hope that fans will come out to support the Highland Park Community Foundation.”
Corgan added, “This event is about helping this community heal after a devastating tragedy. That’s why we chose Studio One as the location for NWA 312. It’s right along the July 4th parade route and that was important to us. I’m from Chicago and we could have had this event anywhere in the city, but I want to make sure the people from the neighborhood get to enjoy the shows.”
Festivities will kick off with a meet and greet event at Madame Zuzu’s on Thursday April 6 which will include a book signing with NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion and FOX News personality Tyrus with his New York Times best seller ‘Just Tyrus’ as well as legendary women’s wrestler Madusa with her soon to be released book ‘The Woman Who Would Be King: The MADUSA Story.’ Other NWA talents will also be on hand to meet with fans.
