The National Wrestling Alliance issued the following press release:
Charlotte, NC (March 27, 2008) – The National Wrestling Alliance® is pleased to announce the addition of 4 time World Heavyweight Champion Sid Vicious to it's regular roster. The announcement was made today during a conference call that was called by Vicious' Management and NWA™ Director Ed Chuman also participating in the call were International Reporters from pro wrestling related publications and websites.
"I am happy to be associated with the NWA™. As you know I started with them some 20 years ago and I'm looking forward to our future. I have seen the NWA™ Wrestling Showcase and I am impressed with the program and the guys. The last 7 years have been extremely rough on me. I love this industry and to have that taken away from me when I was on top, well you can imagine how a hit like that feels. I'm coming in with the NWA™ to show the world that this will be the greatest comeback in pro wrestling – ever!" States Vicious.
