Title renamed as NWA Tri-State Hardcore Title
NWA Tri-State executive committee announced that the Hardcore title would be officially retired. Hardcore type matches will still be held, however no champion will be recognized. The move coincides with partner promotion Mason-Dixon Wrestling's policy of not recognizing a hardcore champion.
