The NWA will be returning to pay-per-view on September 15 as part of the United Wrestling Network’s Primetime Live. Events will air weekly on pay-per-view and FITE TV.
Though NWA will be part of the programming schedule, it doesn't mean the promotion will be running weekly television once again.
Speaking on the Battleground podcast, Nick Aldis detailed the deal between UWN and NWA.
"We've had a great relationship with FITE TV, our pay-per-views outperform certain big brands on their platform like three to one. They are constantly checking in with us because they make money from us. An option came up for Thunder Studios in LA. It will be a combination of FITE TV and traditional pay-per-view. It was a situation where they said to David Marquez, 'there is a timeslot here if you want to do something with it.' David put this situation together where he opened up the possibility where any promotion who wanted to take part in it to have a pay-per-view as regularly or in-frequently as they would like. We partnered with him because it's a great opportunity for us to go into a new setting -- we didn't want to go to GPB without fans. They will be regular weekly shows on pay-per-view, but that's not to say the NWA will be doing weekly pay-per-views. There is a timeslot and the NWA will be occupying some of those shows," said Aldis.
Aldis noted he will wrestle on the September 15 show, but there is no opponent announced.
Elsewhere during the podcast, Aldis gave his thoughts on how Bruce Prichard handled the return of his wife Mickie James. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
