Night Of Champions will take place on Saturday, August 29th at the Troy Buchanan High School Gymnasium and will be featuring special guests Ric Flair together with Harley Race. On Thanksgiving night of 1983, these 2 superstars of professional wrestling headlined the first ever mega-event that was named Starrcade in Greensboro, NC. This legendary bout is revered as one of the greatest matches of all time. Now, these 2 re-unite in what will be a spectacular evening for the professional wrestling world.

In the semi-main event, the WLW Tag-Team Champions Elite Aggression - Superstar Steve and Dangerous Derek - will defend their titles against the Black Hand Warriors - Dave Delorean and Jayden Fenix. These 2 teams started their battle at the WLW event on June 30th when Superstar Steve cashed in his 2014 Harley Race Invitational Tournament trophy to under-handedly win the tag-team championships after the Black Hand Warriors had just battled to win them. Now, these 2 teams will meet in a re-match at WLW Night Of Champions. 

Another match that has been signed is for the WLW Ladies Championship. Current champion, Stacey O'Brien, has been on a lengthy reign as champion for some time now.
