Earlier this week, in the video above, it was announced that Jazz would defend the title at the landmark event. Jazz has held the title since Sept. 2016 when she defeated Amber Gallows and Christi Jaynes in a triple threat bout. 

Penelope Ford is best known as Joey Janela's second, but she's an accomplished wrestler in her own right. She recently wrestled Ethan Page at Janela's Lost in New York event and stole the show with her interference in Janela's bout with Hangman Page at All In. 

The NWA 70th Anniversary Show takes place on Oct. 21. Fightful will provide full coverage on the night of the event.
