The NWA Western States Tag Team Championship match at Vendettaversary on August 8, 2015 in Santa Maria, California was originally scheduled to be between the teams of The Von Dooms–Cyanide and Vintage Dragon–and the current, undisputed Western States Tag Champs, The Ballard Brothers–Shane & Shannon Ballard.

However, The Classic Connection wanted in. “The Unorthodox” Levi Shapiro and “The Ace” Buddy Royal hold three different Tag Team Championships throughout the State of California, proving that they are one of the best teams not only in the State, but in all of Professional Wrestling. They currently hold the APW Universal Tag Team Championship (formerly part of the APW/Vendetta Pro Unified Tag Team Championship), the PCW Tag Team Championship, and the FCW-LA Tag Team Championship. Shapiro and Royal have stated that they will put their titles on the line to get into the NWA Western States Tag Team Championship match at Vendettaversary. Not to be outdone, The Von Dooms are the current Apex Pro Tag Team Champions, and they too have decided to put their titles on the line if it means getting a shot at not only the NWA Western States Tag titles, but the APW, PCW and FCW-LA Tag titles as well.

After a series of phone calls last week by Vendetta Pro Wrestling Commissioner Joseph Duncan, the match has received sanctioning by All Pro Wrestling, Apex Pro, Pro Championship Wrestling and Full Contact Wrestling-Los Angeles. As a result, The Classic Connection have been put into the contest, which will be contested under Vendetta Pro Wrestling’s “Tri-Force” rules–slightly modified from usual Three-Way match rules–and will be for not one, not two, not three, not even four, but FIVE different Tag Team Championships

The team that wins this contest will hold all five of the following Tag Team Titles:

  • NWA Western States Tag Team Championship (Vendetta Pro Wrestling)
  • APW Universal Tag Team Championship (All Pro Wrestling)
  • Apex Pro Tag Team Championship (Apex Pro Wrestling)
  • PCW Tag Team Championship (Pro Championship Wrestling)
  • FCW-LA Tag Team Championship (Full Contact Wrestling-Los Angeles)


The titles will not be “unified”, meaning that they will each have to be defended individually in matches sanctioned by each sanctioning body. However, the possibility of more than one title being defended at a time–perhaps even future Quintuple Tag Team Title matches–does exist.
