UPDATE: NWA announced on Facebook that they welcomed Bily Corgan to the organization.
Bruce Tharpe also wrote this on his Facebook:
I am very excited for the future of the NATIONAL WRESTLING ALLIANCE.
As everyone knows by now – Billy Corgan and I have agreed on principle regarding his acquisition of the NWA brand. This decision comes after many weeks of negotiation and deep consideration.
Although Billy Corgan may be a fresh face to wrestling – he is an extremely successful businessman and has a deep admiration and respect for the NWA. He is also putting together a very strong team.
With the capital and business acumen that Billy Corgan brings to the table – I am confident that he has the ability to take the NWA to the next level. And I have promised to do all I can to help him succeed. I ask you to join me in supporting the new NWA regime in the future.
I am not leaving wrestling – but after four years at the helm of the NWA – I look forward to stepping back and allowing someone new and passionate to take control of this great and noble organization.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the NWA over the years and during my tenure. I also want to publicly thank Billy Corgan for his confidence and respect for this iconic brand.
The next few months are going to be really exciting for the National Wrestling Alliance – but most of all for the fans!
Former TNA Wrestling President and former creative member of RESISTANCE Pro Billy Corgan has agreed in principle to purchase the NWA according to PWInsider.com. The details are Billy would purchase the name, rights, trademarks, and possession of the NWA championship belt.
This is of course very interesting news and details as to what will happen with talent and the NWA on Demand service are still up in the air. What do you think about this? Leave comments below or talk about this at the ROHWorld Forum.
