National Wrestling Alliance held a press conference this morning at the Hard Rock Cafe in Atlanta. They are holding TV tapings at the GPB Studios tonight and tomorrow and announced their weekly show will be on Tuesdays, 6:05pm on YouTube and Facebook Live. Here are some notes of what happened. I paraphrased comments, so there may be errors.
- Promos by Tim Storm (3:08 timestamp), Nick Aldis (5:43), NWA Worlds Tag Team Champions Thomas Latimer & Royce Isaacs (The Wild Cards)(9:03), Eli Drake (10:24), NWA National Champion James Storm (12:09), Allysin Kay (13:22)
- NWA will be broadcast on YouTube and Facebook Live Tuesdays at 6:05pm Eastern time.
- Corgan presents new NWA Womens belt. It has a white strap belt with a portrait of Kay in the middle. Corgan commented the Womens belt design is a nod to old-school traditional designs from the days of Moolah and Mildred Burke.
- Billy Corgan puts over Atlanta, the TV studio wrestling experience, and was generally optimistic about honoring tradition while staying current. Also, he said that they can’t go without a TV partner “forever.”
- NWA wrestlers aren’t exclusive and can take outside bookings.
- Next NWA pay-per-view is on 14 December from Atlanta and is broadcast live on Fite.tv.
- Group photo at the end with NWA roster and officials.
