The NWA announced a press conference for Monday at the Hard Rock Cafe Atlanta.
This Monday, September 30th, at 9am, the National Wrestling Alliance will hold a press event in the Velvet Underground room at Hard Rock Café Atlanta (215 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30303). Appearing at this press conference, all of the champions of the NWA including NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis, NWA National Champion James Storm, NWA World Tag Team Champions Royce Isaacs and Thom Latimer and NWA Women’s World Champion Allysin Kay. Also, NWA President Billy Corgan will speak on his vision for the National Wrestling Alliance plus reveal the name of the weekly series and how fans will be able to watch the shows around the world.
“Now it’s our time to shine. Now it’s time to bring the NWA back into the spotlight and run on our own oxygen. What sticks out about studio wrestling is that anything can happen. I want to bring that back to professional wrestling and I think the NWA is the perfect vehicle to do that.” said Billy Corgan, President | National Wrestling Alliance.
Limited tickets for the 9/30 & 10/1 events at GPB Studios (260 14th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318) are available at http://https://www.nationalwrestlingalliance.com/atlantatv. Event begins at 7pm each night with doors opening at 6pm.
Powell’s POV: There’s no indication yet as to whether the press conference will stream live. If not, I’d be surprised if the company didn’t release some of the footage via their Youtube channel.
