The NWA 70th Anniversary Event on Sunday was well-received by the vast majority of fans. But one thing that stood out in a bad way were the production issues.
Taking to Instagram after the show, Corgan addressed the production issues when discussing the event and thanking fans for their support.
On the production issues:
"We fell short on providing a televised event up to the standard that I would consider acceptable. Which reminded me greatly as to why people questioned my pursuit of TNA (in terms of wanting to buy the company, and filed a potential lawsuit to do so)," wrote Corgan. "Put simply, building up a culture like Smashing Pumpkins or the NWA, takes time, trial and error, and great risk. And throwing $$$ at the problems doesn't necessarily correct the issues, and in some cases makes it worse. So last night I was painfully reminded of how hard this journey is, and knew by the time the last bell rung we have much work to do before we'd run another such live event."
NWA did not announce another event following the conclusion of the show, but the company is in it for the long haul. Along with crowning a new NWA National Champion, the NWA Women's and Heavyweight Titles were defended. Since Corgan took ownership of the company in Oct. 2017, he's helped rebuild the reputation of the NWA Heavyweight Title with the Ten Pounds of Gold series and brought the company back into the wrestling spotlight.
