James Ellsworth is not NWA World Champion.
From the studio of Championship Wrestling From Hollywood, NWA presented a championship match between WWE veteran James Ellsworth and NWA World Champion Nick Aldis. The match was announced on Sunday when Ellsworth confronted Aldis at an NWA event.
The following is a play-by play of the match between Ellsworth and Aldis.
Ellsworth is visibly scared in the beginning. Aldis levels him with a punch and beats him up in the corners of the ring. Ellsworth avoids one attack and attempts to throw his knee at Aldis. He feigns injury then attempts a schoolboy on Aldis.
Ellsworth runs around the ring avoiding Aldis and lands a dropkick and cross-body on Aldis. Aldis then catches Ellsworth and pins him. However, Ellsworth's foot was on the rope and the match is restarted.
With a couple of quick pin attempts Ellsworth gets a couple of two-counts. He lands a series of offense including a second rope flatliner. Aldis attempts a powerbomb but Ellsworth pokes his eye. Then Ellsworth lands a superkick. He lines up a sweet chin music but Aldis catches the kick and turns it into a cloverleaf submission.
Nick Aldis submits James Ellsworth.
At the end of the match, Aldis pretends to give Ellsworth credit but then reapplies the cloverleaf. He also throws Ellsworth out of the ring. After the match it was announced Colt Cabana will be challenging Aldis in China for his championship.
