New NWA Champion "The Toyko Monster" Kahagas on whether he will be a traveling champion and what he can do to stabilize the NWA following the controversy with Adam Pearce and Colt Cabana

On being left out of the tournament originally as NWA National Heavyweight Champion: "Oh yeah, I wasn’t too enthused about it at all. I mean, I pretty much let it be known, you know there was a little article put out there by Brian Kelley out there in the Midwest. No, I wasn’t happy about it at all. I mean, I don’t know how Carson felt; he is the newly crowned North American Champion. So, I don’t know if he was comfortable right then or not but I know I definitely wasn’t and I let it be known. I did contact the Board of Directors and pretty much told them know how I felt about it and I felt degraded about the whole part. Like I said, I don’t have nothing to hide or nothing to hold back; if I have something to say I’m pretty much going to do it, regardless. And that’s what I did.

"Coming out here, I was booked on Friday night and I got a last minute call pretty much when I hit the ground and they said ‘We want you in Jersey’; so what am I going to say, no? So, the next day, I hopped on a plane and took off to Jersey and took care of business and did what not only what me but the whole NWA and anyone involved in it kind of set out to do, and that’s make a mark and let people know we’re still out there. I’m not afraid to go out there and call the marks out and stuff like that. That’s kind of the biggest deal, the big swerve, and I think they kind of nailed it right on the head and nobody really pays attention to that little thing on the bottom of the flyer that says ‘Card Subject to Change’. You never know what’s going to happen."

How much mental preparation did he have for the title match, which his opponents having no clue: "Yeah, that was walking into the door totally blind as to anybody, I mean no one knew I was there, no one knew I was coming. When I walked out through the curtain, it was a totally surprise to anybody that was sitting out there or wasn’t involved. I got there earlier in the day and I pretty much kayfabed and just stuck to myself. No one had a clue who I was and I just kind of sat to the side and let business take its place, do what I was there to do and everything turned out. When I say turned out, I think I every aspect of that night: from winning the belt to just everybody being in shock from the second I stepped out from the curtain. And I think that’s what we wanted to accomplish and that’s what happened."

What he can do as champion to stabilize the NWA after the bouts of turmoil that had plagued it recently: "What can I do? I don’t know what I can do. But know what I have done and what I can do myself and I’ll keep running; whether I’m champion or not, I’ll keep going just like I’m going and as far as the NWA goes, I have nothing but respect for the NWA. I grew up with the NWA, a lot like you guys and many other, and there’s some that have never seen past ECW; it’s just the way it is. Some people believe in certain things and some people were raised around the business or in the business in different ways. You know how I’ve always been; I love this business and I don’t feel like there’s anyone out there who loves it more than me.

"But, I can always say I hope there’s plenty out there that love it just as much. There was nothing without the NWA. You look at all these guys that sit back and talk on the internet and blab about some people are so great and such legends and they’ve done this and done that. What they got to realize is where they actually came from and where they started; everybody came through the NWA, if they were anybody. And a lot of people don’t look at it like that and there’s a reason; the reason is its part of tradition. It’s been around forever and helped make wrestling what it is. Regardless of what it is now and what it was, it’s still the NWA and it’s three letters but for some people those three letters mean something."

Does he see himself as a traveling World Champion like the way Adam Pearce did it: "That’s the whole idea of being a World Champion; you got to go around the world and represent. You know, I’m already in talks with different places right now, international; some places that haven’t seen a world title belt and some places that haven’t seen it in years and years. You know, hopefully I can bring something like this to their country and just do things a little bit different; touch some places that haven’t been touched in a while."
