"The VIP" Cassidy Riley – A former NWA Mississippi Heavyweight Champion, former NWA North American Tag Team title holder (with Air Paris), former World Wrestling Council Tag Team title holder (with James Storm) and a 19 time USA Championship Wrestling Heavyweight Champion, Riley is perhaps best known for his five year stint with Impact Wrestling as a member of "The Hotshots" tag team (with Chase Stevens). Riley has also wrestled for the WWE's ECW brand and Ohio Valley Wrestling development territory.
Vordell Walker – Walker has been a major force on the independent circuit for several years wrestling for such groups as Georgia Championship Wrestling, Southern Championship Wrestling, AWA World 1 South, Showtime All-Star Wrestling, Rampage Pro Wrestling and NWA Florida. However, he is perhaps best known for his brief appearances with Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor.
In addition to the NWA Ring Warriors Grand Championship tournament, a highly-anticipated first ever meeting will occur during the "Inaugural Brawl" as current NWA National Heavyweight Champion "The Dark Child" Chance Prophet will put his title on the line against "The Tokyo Monster" Kahagas.
Prophet, who has been a staple of the NWA the last several years, won the title this past February in Franklinville, New Jersey, having defeated Phil Shatter (Impact Wrestling's Gunner), who held the title for two years. Kahagas recently received a lot of attention when he and a number of wrestling veterans lobbied for him to have a spot in the recently held NWA World Junior Heavyweight Title tournament that was won by Kevin Douglas. Although Kahagas did not participate in the tournament, his actions drew a lot of attention and while he has captured several regional titles throughout his career, a victory over Prophet would give the Tokyo Monster his first prominent NWA title. Prophet previously held the title for five months back in 2007 and was stripped of the belt after he was unable to defend it due to an injury.
Brannon said the remaining four participants of the tournament and other title match that will take place will be announced soon.
