National Wrestling Alliance owner & promoter Billy Corgan was recently interviewed on Busted Open Radio, where he mainly spoke about the upcoming ‘NWA When Our Shadows Fall’ PPV.
When he was asked what he saw in the next year for his promotion, Corgan gave a fascinating answer, saying NWA, AEW, ROH & NJPW should team up to ‘topple the giant’ (beat WWE).
Here’s what Billy had to say:
“First of all, I feel like the little guy running around ringing the bell. I see stuff. I think maybe that not everybody sees. It’s going to be a hot second here but pretty quickly.
All the non-WWE forces out there at play are going to figure out if they work together they can topple the giant.
Now you might not topple them to the ground, but you can bring them to a knee, and that has not been even remotely a possibility for over 20 years. It’s been 20 plus years since the WWE had real competition.
Now, if you want to say AEW versus WWE, I can respect that. But I think WWE would beg to differ on the bottom line part of it all.
But if you’re talking about a public perception, where you let this wrestling revolution in the last 5 years really kick in, and they like talents like yourself, Bully or Mark Henry step up into this new vacuum which Triller is also creating with the kind of the Fight Club model, and suddenly you can offer fans matchups that are complete dream matchups and can rival WrestleMania, on any given night.
I think it will blow this industry-wide apart, and in a good way, not in a bad way.
And I think I think Tony Khan is very smart. He’ll figure that out pretty soon.
Now he might be in the catbird seat and think he doesn’t need anybody, but I think he’s going to quickly figure out that if you can get everybody under the same tent, and he’s got a lot of people under the same tent already.
I’m working with Tony, IMPACT’s working with Tony, New Japan’s working with Tony. I don’t think there’s any hostility there between Tony and Ring of Honor.
I mean, you put all the non-WWE players at the table in one night. How does the world not stop and watch for that one night?
I mean, that is a mind-blowing concept that wouldn’t even be close to possible 5 years ago.
So to answer your question, I think the NWA is just kind of playing the wave that’s coming, and as I’ve said to Tony privately.
Our product is what it is. We’re going straight up the middle. And I know there are a lot of wrestling fans who like what’s going on, all power to you. I’m gonna ride the bet that the old school is the new school.
And when all is said and done, it might be 5 years, might be 7 years there’s going to be another major player at the table.
It’s going to be the NWA because a mainstream broadcasting platform is going to look and say if you can deliver this quality with this level of consistency to this wide of an audience.
Here’s the seat at the table, because I don’t have to sell them anything.
Just look at the history, look at the brand, and look at what you’re presenting, and as long as you can figure it out, behind the scenes.
Good to go.”
