NWA executive Dave Lagana posted a note on the NWA website following two days of tapings for the upcoming “NWA Power” series. The following are snippets from the statement, which can be read the full post at Nationalwrestlingalliance.com.
“As a child of the 80s, I grew up on Rock N Wreslting and 6:05 wrestling. It’s not lost on BIlly and I the power of this moment. #NWAPowerrr is being produced less than 500 yards from Techwood Drive. The heroes of our past are on our mind with each step we take. To have Jim Cornette, Robert Gibson and Ricky Morton there is a moment we will never forget. We are doing this to honor the thousands of memories they have created for all of us. We are honored to carry this flag of tradition and legacy of the NWA…
“So many have lifted up this journey. So many have helped us. Like David Marquez and everyone at Championship Wrestling From Hollywood. They are part of this family. Our friends at Ring Of Honor became the rocket fuel to give our talents and #TenPoundsOfGold to let us hit a new stratosphere.
“And that includes Cody Rhodes, Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson who opened the door for us to go ALL IN. Good luck to them on their next step today. Thank you Joe Koff and Greg Gilleland for being true professionals and men of their word in their support of Billy and I. We would not be here without you. The business is about relationships and we truly value ours.”
Powell’s POV: A classy letter from Lagana that is accompanied by a photo of the NWA cast and crew. The NWA website also has some cool photos of the studio, which looks like an amazing throwback to Saturday night studio wrestling. The first show will stream on Youtube and Facebook on Tuesday at 5:05CT/6:05ET.
