World League Wrestling has billed its Saturday, March 9 event as “The Biggest Wrestling Event in the St. Louis Area.” That may be true, given the card and guest appearances that night at the Tri-County Sports Center in Moscow Mills.
“The National Treasure” Nick Aldis defends his NWA heavyweight title against “The Legacy” Leland Race. The bout conjures nostalgia and hometown pride for Saint Louisans.
Race says he will win the legendary “10 lbs. of Gold” in Lincoln County for his father, the former world champion Harley Race. If Leland wins, he will be part of the second father-son duo to capture the NWA crown (Dusty & Cody Rhodes).
Plus, every WLW title is on the line.
