Tommy Young To Do Honorary Instructions For NWA World TItle Match At Crockett Cup

Tommy Young is returning to the NWA.

The National Wrestling Alliance announced that legendary referee Tommy Young will give honorary referee instructions for the NWA Crockett Cup main event between Nick Aldis and Marty Scurll.

Young was the Senior Referee for Jim Crockett Promotions and refereed most of the NWA World Heavyweight Championship matches.

On November 28, 1989, while refereeing a match between Mike Rotunda and Tommy Rich, Young suffered a career-ending injury. An angered Rich threw Young out of his way and Young's head bounced off the rope, where he was left legitimately incapacitated for the remainder of the match. This resulted in a broken neck and the end of his full-time career as a referee.

NWA Crockett Cup is scheduled for Saturday, Apr. 27. Fightful will have full coverage of the event.
