Re: National Wrestling Alliance Thread - Corgan's Regime

Okay what the fuck, I've gotten busy with work over the last 2 years or so, and don't really follow wrestling regularly anymore. Just watch highlights on YouTube. In fact, it's been over 2 years since I watched a full show- Raw, SD, NXT, any PPV or even something from NJPW.

Recently, the buzz around AEW Dynamite made me check it out, and it was pretty good.

But NWA POWERRR, holy fuck! This got my full attention. What an incredible show. Just one hour of pure fun, which is exactly what I needed. Commentary was great, loved the old school studio setup, the fans were loud, the promos were great, the champions are presented as such a big deal, it's refreshing. And the matches too- well done squashes, a somewhat competitive match of Eli Drake and that main event. Look, we're not getting any MOTYCs anytime soon, but it doesn't matter. Wrestling should be about two competitors fighting to win, not making it obvious that they are doing it for the star ratings. They stuck to basic moves, but it looked good, a simple body slam or elbow drop looked more legit than many signature moves we see in other promotions.

This was by far my fav wrestling show in a long time, and I didn't even know anyone beforehand other than Aldis, Drake, James Storm, Cornette and Bram/Thom Latimer. But I'm hyped.

Re: National Wrestling Alliance Thread - Corgan's Regime

I found out I could watch NWA on the Roku (youtube app) so I dialed it up and watched it and honestly it was great. The NWA, like AEW lacks star power IMO (NWA more so then AEW) so Id love to see some bigger names get into the NWA or at least a working relationship with a bigger company where we see bigger names but man that 80s studio feel was awesome.

While I loved AEW PPVs, their weekly show has yet to impress me. RAW & SD have been mediocre but NXT has been fantastic. Id easily put NWA right up there with the best wrestling thats on TV right now.

Im excited to see this weekly but also excited with what he does in 5 months. Studio is great for now but it will burn fast. Id love if he kept the old vibe but un the new year took it on the road. His pop up events branded with the regular nwa

Re: National Wrestling Alliance Thread - Corgan's Regime

Just got done watching episode 1.

I like the show for what it is: A smaller scale throwback style presentation. It looked like it was plucked right out of the 1980s.

A nice, basic show with promos and mostly simple matches. Will that work on a grand scale? Probably not, but for fans craving nostalgia or something different, it definitely scratches that itch.

I enjoyed the Storm/Aldis main event as well. Good stuff.

Awesome Awesome show. Great entertainment. Loved the old school feel. The hour flew by. Jim Cornette is a great commentator. Nick Aldis is an amazing World Champion.

Anyway, enjoyed the show. Sure it had some minor problems here and there, but I hope that they manage to keep going with this.
Thanks for answering this. Been following the Tim Storm Aldis feud since it startwd over a year ago so would like to see Tim Storm still wresrling for atleast the next couple of months.

It shows that you dont need always need those special moves in matches as long as the product is entertaining all around.

Re: National Wrestling Alliance Thread - Corgan's Regime

The show was fine. I have a suspicion the novelty will get old. They will have to put on a lot better action bell to bell if they are going to keep me interested. I don't mind short matches but none of it made me go 'wow that was great'.

The announce team os so fitting.

I think Tim storm should now turn heel as he fan fuck the rules of the stipulation.

Also think Tim storm should be the next champion nedore its to late . At the very least be national champ


Theres something weird about the show that really draws me in and makes me want to re-watch it which I have three times and now LOL. I mean aew Dynamite was a great show and I loved it but I don't have interest to re-watch it


Weird
Why would you turn the biggest potential babyface heel? He is likeable, has a good vibe... leave him be!
