• Debut Episode Of New NWA Studio TV Show
You Old Schoolers can now watch the first ever episode of the new Studio Wrestling TV Show called “NWA Power”.
They managed to return to a similar style as Jim Crockett Promotion’s 80s Studio Wrestling shows like NWA World Championship Wrestling and NWA Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling.
Billy Corgan’s NWA reboot is arguably the best thing going in professional wrestling nowadays, plus they’re as close to an Old School Wrestling product as it gets in 2019, while all other major promotions present mostly choreographed spot-fests without any storytelling or psychology.
The show was taped in Atlanta, Georgia and even featured some Old School Wrestling names, such as:
– Jim Cornette (Jim Crockett Promotions, World Championship Wrestling, World Wrestling Federation)
– Austin Idol (Memphis Wrestling, Georgia Championship Wrestling)
Other well known names were Eli Drake (TNA), NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis (TNA), “Cowboy” James Storm (TNA, NXT), Referee Brian Hebner (WWE, TNA), Thomas Latimer (TNA, NXT) and Homicide (TNA).
