Billy Corgan buying the NWA

Former TNA executive Billy Corgan has finalized a deal to purchase the National Wrestling Alliance, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com. Corgan will take possession of the name, rights, trademarks, and the NWA Championship title belt. The NWA is currently owned by Bruce Tharpe.

Powell’s POV: The NWA name hasn’t felt meaningful in years, so it will be interesting to see what Corgan intends to do with it going forward. He and former TNA creative team member Dave Lagana have continued to work together on various projects since departing TNA.

    Good Luck!

  2. He should coordinate with NJWP, ROH, Impact, and AAA (Lucha Underground) and develop thier own streaming network and go have the NWA title defended in all promotions as well as having a joint Supercard once a year.

      1. Impact isn’t going to work with him after the lawsuit.
      2. ROH may not even exist much longer.
      3. NJPW and AAA don’t need NWA help to get into the US unless Corgan gets a TV/PPV deal set up.

      Not sure what his play is here, but very little above has any chance of happening.
