NWA Announces 70th Anniversary Special Event


Billy Corgan’s National Wrestling Alliance is ready to produce their first show. The event will take place on October 21st from the Nashville Fairgrounds in Tennessee.

“It’s such an honor to be leading this historic brand into its next chapter,” Corgan said. “The enduring legacy of the National Wrestling Alliance — the men who forged it and the champions who defended it — illuminate our path in 2018. This event celebrates our first full year shepherding this brand while honoring the everlasting milestones, legends and champions of the NWA.”

The show will be available to purchase live through the FITE app.

Current NWA Champion, Nick Aldis, will next defend the title on September 1st against Cody. The result of that match could factor heavily into the booking of the NWA‘s anniversary event.

The NWA will be running the show in conjunction with Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling. Jarrett was quoted in the press release. He had the following to say in regards to the event. “This will be an event no fan will want to miss, and I’m honored to work with Billy on a show of this magnitude,” Jarrett said.

After taking ownership of the NWA in October 2017, Corgan and company have slowly built the brand back to respectability. Then champion, Tim Storm, carried the title for a few months before dropping it to Aldis at a CZW event late last year.

Other NWA regulars in the last year have included Jocephus, Tim Storm, and Auston Idol.
