Billy Corgan responds to the rumor that NWA is shutting down

Raven recently said he heard through the grapevine that Billy Corgan will not restart NWA. This story got the attention of Billy Corgan, who addressed it on his Instagram account:

“A quick note about the National Wrestling Alliance, which I fought for, and won ownership of a few years back. We are NOT shutting down. So please disregard any and all rumor to effect. The @NWA is not and will not be for sale, and those talent who are under contract remain under contract for a reason: which is that we at the NWA are trying to figure out a way to provide our great fans with wrestling content in a very, very tough environment. And, most importantly, keep our talent safe and the standard of production you’ve come to expect from us at a high level. Anything less, in my opinion, is unacceptable. So yes, appreciate the interest, appreciate the chatter, but don’t appreciate the unsourced rumors and speculation”

With NWA unable to produce traditional wrestling content during the coronavirus pandemic, they recently aired a few episodes of Carnyland in May and June. Their VP Dave Lagana then resigned later in June following sexual assault allegations, and the promotion has been quiet while trying to figure out what’s next.

For fans of the promotion, Corgan’s statement at least offers some assurance that NWA is not shutting down.
