- Only the wrestlers in The Contenders Ring
are allowed to receive a shot at the NWA Smoky Mountain
Heavyweight Title or the NWA Mountain Empire Title.
- The members of The Contenders Ring are
decided upon by the NWA SM Board of Directors. - Wrestlers are only allowed into the ring
following by either winning a Contenders Ring Match or being
placed in the ring by the NWA SM Board of Directors. - If a member of The Contenders Ring is
defeated by someone who is outside of the ring, they will
lose their spot in The Ring to that person. - The members of The Contenders Ring are not
ranked... Title shots are scheduled when the member of the
ring sends in a request. The requests are reviewed by the
NWA SM Board of
Directors and either accepted or denied at that time. - Once a person has been defeated by either
the Smoky Mountain or Mountain Empire Champion, the NWA SM Board of
Directors will decide whether or
not they should stay in The Contenders Ring.
