• Former WWF Diva Joins NWA
Old School WWF Diva Jazz recently spoke to the Roundtable Pro Wrestling podcast, where she spoke highly of her recent IMPACT Wrestling run and praised her former Tag Team partner Jordynne Grace.
She also revealed that after her recent retirement from active professional wrestling, she already has a new job waiting for her.
Here’s what Jazz said:
“I’ll be going to NWA in June and agenting the girls there.”
It’s safe to say that Jazz becoming an agent there will certainly do great things for the women’s roster of Billy Corgan’s National Wrestling Alliance.
