Billy Corgan’s National Wrestling Alliance has a PPV the weekend, and the line-up for Sat., Dec. 4’s Hard Times 2 is already stacked with legends and visiting talent - especially folks who will became free agents when Ring of Honor announced its upcoming hiatus.
There was one big “TBA” on the card, and that was an opponent for EmPowerrr producer Mickie James. The NWA filled that today, and confirmed that James will be defending the Impact Knockouts title she won from Deonna Purrazzo at Bound For Glory. It’s an ex-Knockout getting the shot, too. Kiera Hogan left Impact to join AEW in September.
