Default The NWA Discussion Thread

Figured since NWA is going to start a weekly tv show we might as well have a thread dedicated to the company.

Current champs:
NWA World’s Heavyweight- Nick Aldis
NWA World Tag Team- PCO & Brody King
NWA National- James Storm
NWA Women’s- Sienna/Allysin Kay

Interested to see what they do with the tag titles now that the ROH relationship is over.

Well unless PCO & Brody King's contract is exclusive to ROH, I see no reason to take the tag team titles off them yet. They're a popular team, they'll likely draw money for the company.

That’s what makes the situation so interesting. Hoping the details for the tv deal are released soon.

On a personal level, I'm hoping Corgan decides to go for a new belt for the Women's Title, because I want so badly to do a new design for it.

I'm also hoping he decides to do new belts for the North American and Jr. Heavyweight Titles (instead of keeping the Leather Rebels ones or going back to the JP ones like with the Women's Title), so I can try my hand at those too.

The National Wrestling Alliance announced that the September 30 and October 1 taping of their new studio series will be held at GPB studios in Atlanta, Georgia. VIP ticket packages for the tapings will go on sale Wednesday, September 3. Watch the video below or at the NWA Youtube Page.
Now if only they'd announce what network will be carrying the show.

NWA Powerrr makes its debut tonight on YouTube at 6:05 ET!

Stoked to check out the show. I’ve avoided spoilers thankfully. I did see pictures of the set and it looks wonderful

First episode of NWA Power is in the books and it was a fun one! Very old school feel to it. Nice mix of talent. Main event was entertaining.

I enjoyed it as well. Very classy of Aldis to give Tim Storm props after he won the match too. Nice to see a heel who doesn't have to be an arse 24/7 just to prove he's bad.

That was probably the best Tim Storm Match I’ve ever seen. Aldis giving him probs was super classy.

Pretty cool that Eddie Kingston showed up.

I just wish the tag titles and national title weren’t so hideous.

Also, hour long wrestling shows are the best.

I've spent a lot of time lately watching old school MACW and JCP with the studio wrestling and I thoroughly enjoyed this too.

I'm not overly familiar with the current roster aside Aldis, James Storm and Eli Drake but they've certainly caught my interest. It strikes a beautiful chord between old school nostalgia and current day wrestling. Jim Cornette on commentary was just the icing on the cake. Also, Tim Storm's pre-match promo was very good.

Excellent. Between NWA and AEW, I'm loving the change to the status quo. An exciting time to be a wrestling fan again as for the past few years, only NJPW had felt exciting.

Got about through the first match before internet issues but it was a good enough start that I'll go back to it.

About this... I'm guessing Billy only owns the 10-lbs of gold? Who owns the rest of the belts? Surely they could buy the rights to some of the lesser titles like the ladies and such. Does Vince have them with the WCW purchase?

The NWA belts are not the same as the WCW belts Vince bought. When JCP was bought by Turner and converted to WCW, they kept using the NWA belts for a while. But between WCW wanting full control of the belts and NWA not wanting to give them that control. They split. With WCW getting it's own championships, and NWA running tournaments for theirs. This led directly to the Shane Douglas ECW promo. Which caused the downturn of NWA until its partnership with TNA. This ended like its partnership with WCW. The NWA then became a bunch of indies that paid to use the NWA name and book its champions. Enter Billy Corgan who bought all the rights to the name, organization, and championships. It looks like he will be going for making an actual wrestling organization again. (Most likely working a bunch of regional territories, with Powerrr being a conglomerate of all the talent from those companies.)
