The NWA roster is about to get a little thinner after a huge shakeup in the company.
Fightful Select has been told that NWA Television champion Zicky Dice has requested his release from the National Wrestling Alliance and although not yet official, it's been granted. NWA had sent an email out to talent in stating that they didn't want any talent with the company that didn't believe in the vision moving forward.
So far we're told that the contract releases don't include any specific instructions outside of a non-disparagement clause. The company has no plans thus far as to whether or not they'll run any events or run any content in the wake of sexual assault allegations against former NWA VP Dave Lagana.
Recently, the NWA also lost another former Television Champion in Ricky Starks, who came out smelling like roses when he appeared for All Elite Wrestling last week. He was offered a contract on the spot following the match and ended up with the company. Dice has noted in our interview with him that he and Starks remain friends and have continued to produce content together.
We reached out to Zicky Dice for comment on the matter, and he replied with "outlandish." He told us recently in an interview that he was contracted through the end of the year.
