THW 23/NBYWA 8: Anniversary was a backyard wrestling supershow event operated by Total Hardcore Wrestling and the National Backyard Wrestling Alliance that took place on September 29 and 30, 2012 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The event was the eighth NBYWA supershow.

BackgroundEdit

On July 14, 2011, Skull Jr. revived his federation Total Hardcore Wrestling and pushed his retirement date back from August 19, 2011 to August 19, 2012. In doing this he created the supershow "NBYWA 8" to celebrate the retirement. After months of uncertainty, the event was finally scheduled as "THW 23/NBYWA 8: Anniversary" (in celebration of THW's sixth anniversary) on August 18 and 19, 2012, after it was learned that Skull and his family would be moving to a new home, suitable to host THW events. In the time between THW's revival and the supershow, Skull had successfully negotiated deals with All-Out Championship Wrestling and Michigan Wrestling Association owner Karnage. The AOCW deal (made on April 7, 2012) allows THW and AOCW to have a talent exchange, making the rosters of both federations the same. The deal with Karnage (made on May 31) gave Skull ownership of MWA. When Eric Castle of Ann Arbor Extreme Wrestling (A2X) confirmed his appearance, Skull negotiated a deal with the federation that allowed Eric to defend the A2X World Championship. Skull also plans to make a base in time for the event. On August 6, the show was moved to August 25 and 26. On August 14, the show was moved again to September 29 and 30 after Skull made a deal with AOCW to host the event in their city, Kalamazoo. The venue will be Kindleburger Park. On September 14, the three members of A2X who were scheduled to appear canceled their appearances. On September 16, most other wrestlers canceled their appearances, leading to the shortening of the card.
