Billy Corgan worked hard in order to get the rights to the NWA. They had to halt their operations owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the promotion has started making content once again. They do not have any plans on stopping anytime soon.
On 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff discussed Billy Corgan bringing back the NWA. According to Bischoff, it was a mistake for Corgan to bring back the NWA which is defunct. Back during the WCW heydays, there was a mix-up regarding NWA involving itself with WCW.
“It was such a cluster f*ck. Certain people felt strongly that the NWA had value. I was not one of them, partly because I just had no exposure to it. NWA was not on my radar. It didn’t exist in my mind. I didn’t understand it – why people were so desperate to hold onto this craziness. There was such a cloud over the intellectual property surrounding that belt, and there still is.”
“The whole NWA– sorry Billy Corgan, Nick Aldis. Nick, I love you. Billy, I wish you nothing but the best, but this whole resurrect the NWA thing was a mistake just because that NWA title has been drugged through the sewage for so many years. This was WCW right in the middle of it. I didn’t understand it then. It was such a cluster.”
Fans seem to enjoy the content that NWA has been producing so far. The company recently came into news regarding Thunder Rosa’s status in the company. It was revealed she will be working with NWA till 2021.
We will have to see whether Bischoff’s words come true someday or not.
