Nick Aldis reflects on what the upcoming weekly NWA television show could look like.
The NWA World Heavyweight Champion wrote a column on Flagged Sports talking about NWA's studio show taking place in the coming weeks. Aldis wrote that WWE has raised the bar when it comes to production value for televised wrestling shows, but admitted that with the focus seemingly more on production, wrestlers' personalities seemed to be glossed over.
With the NWA's show being set up in a studio format instead of being in a big arena, Aldis hopes that the wrestlers can capture the audience's attention with their character and personality.
"Put simply, I have consistently asked the question “if Jim Crockett promotions or Georgia Championship Wrestling were still around today, what would that show look like?”
Yes, there will only be a couple of hundred people in there, but we intend to take advantage of that and do things that can’t be done in an arena environment. You know how they say that when you lose one of your senses, the others become heightened?
The intent is to put the onus solely on the talent to captivate the audience with their personality and I have total faith that we will. The audience will be a part of the show in a totally different way, with direct interaction that creates unique moments that, again, are hard to capture in an arena."
The NWA show will take place at the GPB Studios in Atlanta, Georgia with the tapings being on September 30 and October 1. Aldis' article can be read at this link.
