David Lagana Talks About the Upcoming Jim Crockett Sr. Memorial Cup Tag Team Tournament

I think the good part about the cup is it’s very much the Stanley Cup and we talk about the 10 lbs of Gold being our version of the Stanley Cup as far as the trophy that everyone wants and the fact that everyone has this warm and fuzzy feeling about a tournament that was maybe good for two straight years shows the power of the prize. Wins and losses are great but ultimately there has to be a prize at the end of the rainbow for these journeys we go on and I am a big believer that there are too many titles in wrestling as everyone knows if you follow me. I think the prizes need to matter and the fact that we’re able to resurrect a cup, and we’re working on getting as close to the original version of the cup as possible because it meant something you know. It really did, here we are talking about it almost 30 years later. And it only happened three times and the fact that we were able to get the Crockett family to sign off and the Crockett foundation does really amazing stuff for wounded warriors in the Charlotte area so that's why this whole thing worked so well. And to be able to bring back all those legends and to have Jim Cornette and to do it right in the shadows of Charlotte, North Carolina.

David Lagana Talks About The NWA’s Relationship with Ring of Honor

We want to bring in as much talent from various of places and create an event that you're not gonna get anywhere else and our partnership with Ring of Honor obviously fell off of our involvement in All In. We saw what Ring of Honor was able to do from an infrastructure perspective you know as we discussed sort of this one off event, this was a handshake deal to do this one event together. My history with Ring of Honor, there appreciation of what Billy {Corgan}wants to do and that we’re not trying to rule the universe. We’re trying to create good content one show at a time and this is literally our third show and we’ve been very happy with the grass root success of the first two and the fact that we can move forward into a third one that could involve up to 5 different promotions is a really unique prospect.
