Jazz’s reign as NWA World Women’s Champion predated Billy Corgan’s acquisition and the reboot of the company. Her reign stands at 948 days, as she defeated Amber O’Neal (Gallows) on September 16, 2016. She retained the title across nine title defenses, losing just one match by count-out. Jazz was the 36th overall NWA World Women’s Champion. The hall of champions for this title includes names like June Byers, The Fabulous Moolah, Debbie Combs, Leilani Kai, Amazing Kong, Barbi Hayden, and others. The championship itself has been in existence since 1954.
Due to medical and personal issues in my life at this time. I’m having to turn the belt over without defending it. I will post again soon… Thanks for your support
