Are you excited about the future of the NWA?
So is Billy Corgan. He recently spoke to Sean Waltman on his podcast 1,2,360 where he talked about the future of the NWA, as he finally has a place to show off his creativity when it comes to pro wrestling, with no one around him to tell him how to run the show.
“What I love about wrestling is that it really has an unlimited schedule creativity, and who you work with and the ideas that they have" he said. "I’m very excited about the future of wrestling and NWA because I have nobody standing in my way with my crazy ideas.”
He also talks about why he's able to have all of these crazy ideas -- him departing Impact Wrestling last year on bad terms. He talked about the lawsuit against them, and why Anthem wanted to resolve the issue quickly once they bought Impact Wrestling:
“It gets super complicated with the lawsuit that I had filed, because at that point Anthem was on some sort of side of the fence, representing the interest of their own at that time" he said. "They were a minority owner in this company called Aroluxe who was doing production, then Dixie Carter. Not saying they lined up against me with the lawsuit to be made to go away but it was Anthem who settled the suit since they were taking over the company.”
Billy Corgan is now the sole owner of the National Wrestling Alliance after he bought it earlier this fall. He plans on running shows with the promotion in 2018.
