At NWA 73, multiple men fought in a Battle Royale to receive a future match for the NWA National Heavyweight Championship. Twelve competitors, including Sal Rinauro, Mims, Marshe Rockett, and JTG, made their way to the ring in a combined entrance. What they, as well as fans in attendance and watching at home, didn’t expect was a thirteenth competitor. Making their way to the ring was the tandem of Judais and Father James Mitchell, the latter of whom accompanied the former to the ring for the match.

Accompanied by Father James Mitchell, a veteran professional wrestling manager, Judais stepped into the ring to join the sea of competitors. Judais made a huge presence in the match, even performing a Razor’s Edge on Rinauro to send him out of the ring. Eventually, Judais was one of the final 3 men alongside JTG and Luke Hawx. Judais proceeded to eliminate Hawx, which left him alone in the ring with JTG.

Following a missed kick, Judais was left straddling the top rope. JTG attempted to eliminate him with several shoulder blocks, only to be caught with a chokeslam by his opponent. The match approached its conclusion when Judais attempted another Razor’s Edge, which JTG avoided. This left JTG fighting on the apron while Judais attacked from inside the ring. With a springboard punch, the surprise entrant finally eliminated JTG. Father James Mitchell entered the ring to celebrate with Judais, who earned an NWA National Heavyweight title match against Chris Adonis, who successfully defended the championship against James Storm earlier in the show.
