• Ric Flair Returning To The NWA
Billy Corgan’s National Wrestling Alliance will hold its 73rd Anniversary Show “NWA 73” on August 29, 2021 at the Chase’s Khorassan Ballroom in St. Louis, Missouri, the city that used to host Sam Muchnick’s “NWA Wrestling at the Chase” from 1959 until 1983.
On Twitter, the NWA just announced the return of Old School NWA/WCW/WWF Legend Nature Boy Ric Flair to the organization that once made him a house hold name in professional wrestling.
Here’s what they tweeted:
