Billy Corgan announces the NWA is making a weekly TV show

“We’re very grateful to those people that shared our stage with us, most recently Ring of Honor, which is an incredible opportunity. But now it’s our time to step forward, it’s time to bring the NWA back into the spotlight and run on its own oxygen. So we’re very excited to announce that in October, in Atlanta, we will be doing our own television again.”

And with those words from the video embedded above, the National Wrestling Alliance joins WWE, AEW, ROH, Impact, MLW and New Japan with a weekly television show.

NWA Owner & President Billy Corgan doesn’t reveal where the show will tape on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, but it’s clear it will be a studio show like the 1970s ones which hooked him and many others on pro wrestling in the first place. Corgan also doesn’t offer any details on how the show will be distributed.

The rest of his pitch is aimed at wrestlers themselves, and Corgan promises them an “unscripted, uncensored” opportunity to connect with fans and tell stories.

Will that be enough to get you to make time in your packed wrestling schedule for the legendary brand, and performers like Nick Aldis, Eli Drake, James Storm, and Allysin Kay?
