Nobody else watching the premiere episode of the new NWA?

They’ve recreated the look and feel of the old Mid Atlantic and Georgia Championship Wrestling from the 70s and 80s.

 Even started it at 6:05!!

They should let Severn come in and take the title from that fake HW champ. Then do a Shamrock vs Severn for a best out of three matches for the title. Shamrock takes the title 2 matches to 1. Just when you think Shamrock's reign will never end... the 99 time world champion Rick Flair returns from the grave to win the title for a 100th time!

Woo!

Woo!

Woo!

I’ve been completely out of the loop on wrestling. Billy Corgan owns the nwa right? Are they doing televised events and is the studio wrestling gonna stay around?

Yeah, Corgan owns the NWA. They have done a few pop up events and the Crockett Cup, but for now it looks like these studio shows will me most of their live events for the near future.

That’s awesome. Are they gonna be weekly or anything? I enjoyed that a lot and hope to be seeing them regularly

I kinda dig the feel of it but how do they make any money and how do they pay their talent?  You know nobody is paying to be in the audience.

Well it’s up to 197k views on youtube, so that is somewhere between $100 and $200 dollars!!!!

Yeah with it being on YouTube that’s why I doubt it lasts but I was hoping it had a tv deal somewhere. 200k views in 2 days isn’t bad for youtube. They’ll get more and more as people learn about it. 

 

They need better advertising but it’s a good show
