Billy Corgan shoots down rumors of the NWA shutting down or being for sale

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

NWA President Billy Corgan issued the following statement via his social media pages regarding the status of the company.

“A quick note about the National Wrestling Alliance, which I fought for, and won ownership of a few years back. We are NOT shutting down. So please disregard any and all rumor to effect. The @NWA is not and will not be for sale, and those talent who are under contract remain under contract for a reason: which is that we at the NWA are trying to figure out a way to provide our great fans with wrestling content in a very, very tough environment. And, most importantly, keep our talent safe and the standard of production you’ve come to expect from us at a high level. Anything less, in my opinion, is unacceptable. So yes, appreciate the interest, appreciate the chatter, but don’t appreciate the unsourced rumors and speculation.”

Powell’s POV: Scott “Raven” Levy publicly stated that he’d heard rumblings of Corgan closing the door on the NWA. He didn’t seem malicious in his intent, so he probably was just reacting to the rumors. Nevertheless, it’s good that Corgan set the record straight, as the talent have enough concerns like everyone else in the midst of the pandemic.

  1. I cant wait for Eddie Kingson vs Nick ALdis for the ROH title. If that match has to take place in ROH before a rematch on whenever NWA get to do a show then please just do it. By way im glad NWA are not shutting down. It is the sensible thing to do for all but a dozen wrestling companies globally however whether they have the attention of coming back or not.

    • obvious typo in the above sentence. My main point is if NWA cant run shows straight away then i hope that there relaitionship with ROH allows them to put on at least the NWA championship match oh there show.
      I am assuming ROH will be back before NWA is. Maybe wrongly.
