Billy Corgan Says NWA Will Not Do Business With IMPACT Wrestling

The NWA has long embraced the territory method in wrestling one way or another, and that continues under the present regime.

At Monday's NWA TV taping press conference, owner Billy Corgan said that the National Wrestling Alliance is open to doing business and having their champions appear for any number of promotions. However, IMPACT Wrestling isn't among those.

"We consider ourselves a free agent in the market. We're available to work with anyone from All Elite Wrestling to Championship Wrestling from Hollywood to Ring of Honor. The only prohibition is IMPACT. We won't do business with them. Of course, we'll do business with WWE. We feel like an early UFC or Bellator. We feel like we're in the market and can do whatever we want to do. We have the champions right here.Think back of when ECW guys would appear on Raw. I think people really want innovation in the space," said Corgan. "I think our relationships with Ring of Honor, which extend to New Japan -- we have a great relationship with AAA. I think we could work with anybody at any time."

NWA has previously filmed content at IMPACT tapings in the past, dating back to 2017. When Fightful reached out to IMPACT reps for a response, they said this was the first they were hearing of the situation. NWA reps haven't immediately responded.

IMPACT Wrestling was originally born as NWA:TNA, an NWA territory, in 2002. The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title would be defended there until 2007.
