I hope it's not another LU style wrestling show.

I see you've met my fleet of aerial assault robots!

Hopefully not a water down version of Lucha Underground.

The NWA has been a joke since they went from a membership organization to a holding company that rents out the titles to anyone willing to pay a fee.

This is what I see him trying...

1; Make a single unified promotion roster for the world titles, with a national tv show.

2; Retire the vast majority of the NWA regional titles, keeping some around to promote at house shows in each region.

3; Keeps a few of the regional promotions around as a developmental system, with them touring in specific areas and having regional tv deals.

All-Time Favorite Wrestlers:
The "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels
"Macho Man" Randy Savage
Bret "The Hitman" Hart
Jake "The Snake" Roberts
The Undertaker
Chris Benoit
Sting
Chris Jericho


Current Favorite Wrestlers:
"The American Dragon" Bryan Danielson
"The Phenomenal" AJ Styles
"The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels
Ben Satterly (AKA PAC and Adrian Neville)
"The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived" Austin Aries
CM Punk
Jack Evans
Low-Ki
Nigel McGuinness (AKA Desmond Wolfe)
Nick Aldis (AKA Magnus)

re: National Wrestling Alliance Thread - Corgan's Regime

Apparently, the deal is in jeopardy.

Quote:
Last week, Billy Corgan described his purchase of The National Wrestling Alliance as "97%" done during an interview with yours truly, but that last three percent is turning out to be quite the hurdle to clear, PWInsider.com has learned.

Corgan has been in the process of purchasing the NWA from Bruce Tharpe with the deal including the name, rights,and trademarks to the NWA as well as the rights and possession of the NWA championship belt as well as Tharpe's position in the NWA on Demand VOD service as well as the Paul Boesch wrestling library. The actual ownership of the library remains with the Boesch family, as it had while Tharpe was utilizing it, but once the deal was to have been completed, Corgan would then have the same rights and responsibilities that had formerly applied to Tharpe.

Multiple sources have told PWInsider.com that the deal is described as "in jeopardy" due to issues regarding the transfer of the existing copyrights and trademarks for the National Wrestling Alliance.

PWInsider.com research indicates that the copyright and trademark on the brand name lapsed last year with his International Wrestling Corp, LLC applying for it again on March 30th of this year. The trademark has not been officially assigned, theoretically making it impossible for them to be transferred to Corgan.

Should the deal not go through, it remains to be seen what happens short and long term with the Alliance, although one would assume that Tharpe would continue on with the On Demand service and with licensing the name brand out annually to independent promoters interested in utilizing the NWA name.

In recent weeks, Dave Lagana, who has partnered with Corgan on their NWA plans, had been in regular contact with independent promotions that have licensed the NWA name from Tharpe, seeking to build relationships with the different licensees. Lagana posted a vlog today that he had been visiting with several of the licensees:

PWInsider.com has reached out to both Corgan and Tharpe for comment, but as of this writing, has not heard back.

re: National Wrestling Alliance Thread - Corgan's Regime

There is something that could be done with the NWA. He could unify a lot of the indies and help to retain more talent by having a national TV deal. It might keep the WWE from stealing talent as much as they currently do.

What makes you think they can get a TV deal?

Impact is on a tiny network (Pop) that doesn't even pay them a fee -- they just do an ad revenue split -- and on an outlet owned by its parent company (Fight Nightwork)

Ring of Honor is mostly on channels and outlets owned by its parent company (Comet, Sinclair Stations, rohwrestling.com, etc) and a few random stragglers (Fight Network, Fite TV, etc).

Lucha Underground is on a tiny channel owned by one of its parent companies (El Rey) and doesn't air year round

NJPW is on AXS TV, and generally shows a months-old episode of NJPW's weekly highlight show dubbed over with English commentary and takes multiple extended breaks during the year.

That's what the combined might of the likes of Jeff Jarrett, Konnan, Bubba Ray Dudley, Jay Lethal, Christopher Daniels, Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Eddie Edwards, Davey Richards, Bobby Lashley, Dalton Castle, the Briscoes, Kenny Omega, the Young Bucks, Tetsuya Naito, Pentagon Jr, Rey Mysterio Jr, Ricochet/Prince Puma, Ray Fenix, John Morrison, Cody Rhodes, War Machine, Marty Scurll, Will Ospreay, Alberto Del Rio, etc can bring to US TV outlets.

What exactly does Corgan have to compete with those companies? Who is his star? Why would companies who won't give ROH or Impact a major cable TV deal do the same for the NWA?

WCW/TNA/ROH/ECW/WWF/Lucha Underground/NJPW

Jax Dane, Rob Conway, Tokyo Monster, Kahagas, Rob Terry and Tim Storm.
A stacked line-up like that is sure to be a national juggernaut.

Jason Kincaid works with them sometimes and probably has the most upside but I expect him to sign with NXT, ROH, or Impact in the near future.

Not removing until (X ) Ric Flair shows up on TV stone sober.(It looks like he did it. Good for you Naitch

If anyone is interested in purchasing ultra rare footage of Pat Patterson winning the first Intercontinental Championship in Rio de Janeiro just send me your PayPal username and password and I'll take care of the rest.

I begin to think, that a calm is not desirable in any situation in life....Man was made for action and for bustle too, I believe - Abigail Adams

Not sure if sarcastic or not but Jax Dane signed with Impact (who admittedly does allow Indy bookings with permission so he may be allowed) and Rob Terry is pretty terrible once you get past the initial look at him.

I was being sarcastic and I wasn't aware of Dane signing with Impact. Dane does have a lot of potential and could be a major star in the future.
