HUGE NEWS AFTER SACRIFICE – ZBYSZKO NAMES RHINO NEW #1 CONTENDER TO THE NWA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE

Raven vs. Rhino World Title Match Announced For “Unbreakable”

Orlando, FL (August 14, 2005) – Just minutes after Sunday’s “Sacrifice” Pay-Per-View went off the air, NWA Championship Committee member Larry Zbyszko held a closed door meeting with TNA officials regarding the outcome of Sunday’s main event and the World Title picture.

On the “Sacrifice” preshow, NWA World Heavyweight Champion Raven and nemesis Jeff Jarrett agreed to the following stipulations for the main event: If Jarrett beat Raven, he would get the World Title match at “Unbreakable”. If Raven beat Jarrett, the former champion would be out of the World Title picture for a year. However, much to Jeff Jarrett’s shock, Rhino ended up defeating Raven in the main event!

After emerging from the meeting, Zbyszko officially announced Rhino as the new number-one contender to the NWA World Heavyweight Title. Zbyszko also officially announced Raven vs. Rhino as the main event for the NWA World Heavyweight Title at “Unbreakable” on Sunday, September 11.

Raven, Rhino and a reportedly irate Jeff Jarrett were unavailable for comment following the event, but TNAwrestling.com hopes to post their reaction to the decision by tomorrow night. Tune in to Impact this Friday on TNAwrestling.com for more information!
