NWA President Billy Corgan has announced the full line-up for the upcoming NWA Hard Times II pay-per-view, taking place on December 4 live from the GPB Studios in Atlanta. WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley will appear at the event as the NWA’s Santa Claus for the evening. Corgan also announced that there will be a special in-ring tribute to Jazz.

Two new title matches were announced for Hard Times II. Chris Adonis will defend the NWA National Heavyweight Title against Judais with Jim Mitchell, while Allysin Kay and Marti Belle of The Hex will defend the NWA World Women’s Tag Team Titles in a Triple Threat against the team of Kylie Rae and Tootie Lynn, plus Lady Frost and Natalia Markova.

It was also announced that the ROH World Tag Team Titles will be defended at the NWA pay-per-view. Mike Bennett and Matt Taven of The OGK will defend against Aron Stevens and JR Kratos. Corgan also announced Nick Aldis vs. Thom Latimer for the pay-per-view. If either man is disqualified, they will be suspended for two months, and no one is allowed at ringside.

Corgan will be bringing back the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Title soon, which has been vacant since the summer of 2017, and there will be two qualifying matches at the pay-per-view to determine who competes for the strap. Austin Aries vs. Rhett Titus will be the first qualifier, and then there will be a 12-Man Gauntlet Qualifier with Ariya Daivari, Homicide, Kerry Morton, CW Anderson, Luke Hawx, PJ Hawx, Jeremiah Plunkett, Sal Rinauro, Darius Lockhart, Jamie Stanley, Victor Benjamin, and Alex Taylor.

UK wrestling legend Douglas Williams will be in action at Hard Times II, wrestling his first match in the United States in several years. He will go up against Colby Corino, son of the legendary Steve Corino. Impact Wrestling’s Knockouts Champion Mickie James has also been announced for the NWA pay-per-view. Finally, a stipulation was added to Cyon vs. NWA World Television Champion Tyrus. This will now be a No DQ, No Time Limit bout with “The Pope” Elijah Burke as the special referee.

The NWA Hard Times II pay-per-view will air live via FITE TV at 8 pm ET on Saturday, December 4 from GBS Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. The pre-show will air on the NWA YouTube channel and FITE.
