Matt Cardona is your new NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion.

As per Andrew Mitchell of Wrestlezone, the current IMPACT Digital Media Champion defeated Trevor Murdoch at last night's NWA Powerrr Trip tapings from Valor Hall in Oak Grove, Kentucky.

Cardona first made his presence known in the National Wrestling Alliance at the Hard Times 2 PPV last December. There, he immediately put Murdoch in his crosshairs - and now, the Deathmatch King has toppled Murdoch and taken the NWA's biggest prize.


Taking to Twitter, the former GCW World Champion was quick to celebrate this latest victory, with upcoming GCW opponent Sean Waltman one of the first to respond to this win.

For Trevor Murdoch, this brings his reign as the NWA Worlds Champion to an end at 168 days. Murdoch bested fellow Harley Race trainee Nick Aldis to win that title at the NWA 73rd Anniversary Show in August of last year.

The NWA World Title wasn't the only belt to change hands at last night's Powerrr Trip special, for Anthony Mayweather defeated Chris Adonis to become the new NWA National Champion.

Elsewhere, Kamille retained the NWA Women's Championship against Taryn Terrell, Nick Aldis beat Thom Latimer in an I Quit contest, Mike Knox defeated Da Pope, Chelsea Green beat Kenzie Page, Jax Dane bested Eric Jackson, Colby Corino picked up the W over Rhett Titus, and Idolmania Sports Management got the better of Cyon and Ill Begotten.
