Published

Mike Bennett will make his return to pro wrestling after a five month absence, and looks to make an immediate statement with one of the biggest matches of his career.

Bennett, who was released from WWE in April along with dozens of others, will challenge Nick Aldis for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship on 9/15 in the main event of the United Wrestling Network’s Prime Time Live debut!


Prime Time Live, a collaboration between UWN and the National Wrestling Alliance, will mark the first major weekly wrestling pay-per-view series since TNA restructured their business in 2004. Each show will be available through traditional pay-per-view and FITE TV.

The pairing of Bennett and Aldis is an interesting match-up. In one corner there’s a champion who hasn’t been able to defend his title since January, up against a guy who may have more to prove than anyone in that group of April releases, in a situation where they both basically have to show up.

Unfortunately, today it has been confirmed that NWA’s Jocephus, AKA The Question Mark has sadly passed away.

Jocephus (real name Joseph Hudson) has sadly passed away due to an undiagnosed medical issue, which has been confirmed by NWA’s President, Billy Corgan.


Jocephus, is a former NWA Southern Heavyweight Champion and spent more than 10 years with NWA, being best known for his work with Aran Stevens.

Corgan announced the news with the following statement:

It’s with a heavy heart that I share that my friend and brother in wrestling, Joseph Hudson, has passed away suddenly from an as-yet undiagnosed medical issue. NWA fans would know him as Jocephus as well as The Question Mark; where thanks to the great fans at GPB Studios in Atlanta, Joseph was able to receive the kind support in the ring he’d always dreamt of. He is survived by a young son whom he loved dearly, and if anything would pain him about leaving this earth it would be not being able to be there for his boy. RIP Joseph, love to you and Godspeed.

Several people within the wrestling world have reacted to the news, sharing their tributes to him.

Everyone at ProWrestling.com would like to offer condolences to the family and friends of Joseph Hudson at this time.

Nick Aldis Discusses The Upcoming Return Of NWA Powerr

Nick Aldis

The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, Nick Aldis recently spoke about the current plans for the return of NWA Powerr.

The show is set to return in 2021 following a break due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but there is currently no date attached to when that will be.


However, during a recent interview with ‘The Wrestling’s Cool’ podcast, Nick Aldis gave a hint at those plans, stating that he was “conservatively guessing” things will be back for Spring. He also revealed he has reached out to a few people he would like to be involved, but didn’t want to name any names.

“Depends on when we start up again. I would conservatively be guessing that we’ll be ready to do Powerrr again by the spring, and so I know who I — and it’s not up to me. I have obviously a fairly significant amount of influence, but I know who I would like to see on the show and there’s a few guys who I’ve reached out to and I’ve talked to Billy [Corgan] and Pat Kenney [Simon Diamond] and said, ‘Look, I’ve got this idea for this guy.’ But, I’m reluctant to say too much because one, given our track record of getting guys over and recognizing talent, the second I say their names, someone else is gonna try and sign them, and two because who knows what’s gonna happen with them between now and the spring? Some of them may end up signing a contract somewhere else so I don’t want to — I just don’t want that attention to go there.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions)
