|NWA: Motor City|
1998 saw Sabu (Terry Brunk) return to his uncle, The Original Sheik's stomping grounds in Detroit to open up NWA: Motor City and left right where Sheik left off. NWA:MC's debut show saw Sabu versus Rob Van Dam in the main event where the crowd was treated to chairs, tables, blood and barred wire that was much to the dismay of the NWA Board of Directors.
The Insane Clown Posse arrived in the Motor City in the summer of 1999 which would be dubbed "The Summer of Violence" where Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J would cause terror on a weekly basis beating down and bloodying their opponents each week and by the end of August they defeated Sabu in a "Echoside Death Match" to become Co-Holders of the Motor City Heavyweight Title. The Juggalo influence on Motor City saw their popularity reach huge heights with many ICP music fans begging to show up in numbers to shows.
In 2004, Motor City gained a huge acquisition in the former NWA World Tag Team and ECW Heavyweight Title holder Raven after a fall out with ECW Owner Paul E. Heyman. Raven would go to dark places citing Paul E. Heyman kicking him out of ECW was horribly reminiscent of his childhood memories when his father made him leave home. Raven said the best revenge would be capturing the Motor City Heavyweight Title to ultimately show that even the Raven has his day.
In recent years Motor City has been criticized for not being up the times and "still being stuck in 1998 instead of 2008" but the rise of the Murder City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin) as well as Monty Brown are two reasons to keep an eye out for the renegade promotion.
