• Old School WWF Announcer Joins The NWA
Legendary Old School WWF Announcer Sean Mooney announced on Facebook that he has joined the National Wrestling Alliance.
Sean Mooney joined the World Wrestling Federation in May 1988 as a replacement for Craig DeGeorge, and stayed with the company until April 1993.
Since Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan purchased the NWA in 2017, the company went into a much more “Old School” themed direction, by bringing back studio-wrestling, known from Georgia Championship Wrestling & Jim Crockett Promotions during the 70s & 80s, as well as bringing back famous Old School Veterans & Legends, such as The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express (who Corgan even made NWA World Tag Team Champions again!), Jim Cornette, Austin Idol, Scott Steiner, … and now Sean Mooney.
Mooney started with the promotion at this weekend’s NWA Power tapings. But will he continue to work as an announcer for the National Wrestling Alliance in the future? We will update you here on WWFOldSchool.com, as soon as more information is available.
