Tyrus Breaks Surprising Record With NWA Worlds Title Win


Tyrus has discussed his NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship victory and revealed that he has broken an unusual record with his win.

Tyrus won the first world championship of his career at NWA’s Hard Times 3 pay-per-view when he captured the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship in a three-way match with former champion Trevor Murdoch and Matt Cardona.

The NWA star is best known among wrestling fans for portraying the dancing ‘Funkasaurus’ Brodus Clay character in WWE where he competed between 2010 and 2014.

Speaking to Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald, Tyrus discussed his big win and explained just why it is so historic:

“I was elated, I was shocked, I didn’t realize the historic…you know you make history, but only 100 guys, now 101 guys, have held this championship. To find out I’m the largest NWA Champion of all-time is pretty cool. Although, Andre The Giant could have won it anytime he wanted to, he just chose not to. I took a moment after I won the match to take a knee and thank the champions before me.”

Jim Cornette recently gave his strongly worded take on Tyrus winning the NWA Worlds Title while Eric Bischoff has defended the decision to put the belt on the FOX News personality.
