Last night in Tampa, Florida, hardcore superstar Sabu defeated 'Colorado' Mike Rapada to win the NWA World title.

The match, at the Homer Hesterly Armory, was a part of the 'NWA Night of Decisions' show. It only took 12 minutes for the 'Homicidal! Suicidal! Genocidal!' Sabu to get control of Rapada, and put him through a table and score the pin.

Sabu is a former ECW World champion and nephew to the legendary Original Sheik. He left ECW on bad terms earlier this year, and has been wrestling in Japan, and various promotions in the U.S. including the NWA and XPW.

Rematches between Sabu and Rapada are scheduled for December 1 in the NWA Michigan promotion, and December 12 in Tampa.

Rapada has held the World title since September, when he won an eight-man tournament to win the belt, which had been vacated by former champ Naoya Ogawa.
