NWA On Demand streaming service shutting down (by-product of Corgan's buying Tharpe's interest in the Paul Boesch Houston territory library. Library ownership stays with the Boesch family but Corgan will have ability to control the library going forward)
All member promotions with licenses to use the NWA initials and branding under the company's Bruce Tharpe ownership end the day before. Going forward as of 10/1, the NWA will be whatever Corgan and Lagana lead it to be
Current champ Tim Storm appeared at last night's Championship Wrestling Hollywood taping and teased a feud with Nick Aldis (aka Magnus from TNA)

There was a quote from Billy Corgan from some article a while ago that was posted in the TNA thread where he tries to explain what his idea of what "a reformation of the way in which wrestling is viewed" means

quote:

Corgan believes his ideas will "break new ground." In 2015, he said, "Those social and cultural issues that are sort of a "don't go there subject" will result in themes that will feel more meaningful to current audiences. "I think there's an endless supply of things in our culture where people are dealing with race or with gender, etc., and you can get into these things in a way that is both revelatory and enlightening. Treated the right way, ultimately, the good guy wins. The right ideas win."

I stand by my post from that thread that it sounds like he's talking about Scientology

lovin this little scene-setting paragraph

quote:

Vince McMahon clearly has a plan of where he wants to bring WWE, with a yearly benchmark at WrestleMania. Ring of Honor COO Joe Koff has also developed concrete goals. Anthem Executive Vice President Ed Nordholm, who oversees Impact Wrestling, admitted that his company did not have a plan upon its purchase, which has continued to lose money over the past 12 months.

I hope Tharpe wore his wonderfully horrible jackets during contract negotiations, and dazzled Corgan with style.

Corgan did a podcast interview. Highlights: Weekly free internet TV, hoping to start running shows in spring 2018, and no more NWA licensee promotions.

The promotions were of such low quality that they reflected badly on the brand.

This is....surprisingly aware of Billy?

And did he specify what 'free internet TV' meant, like havig his own NWA website he'd be streaming on, Twitch, etc.?

dave lagana did a 3hr interview on the last wrestlenomics radio about the nwa, branding, digital marketing etc... and basically said they want to start small and have a laser focus on exactly what nwa is/means and they get nothing out of having a bunch of satellite feds and it actively dilutes the kind of "brand building" they're after

if you can tolerate the language of ted talks and nu-media it's a solid interview. The 20 Year Plan is real

It won't take off in any way but maybe some cool people will get paid and they'll do something weird nobody else is doing

The amount of times I've heard Lagana reference Jake Paul is astounding. You're telling me you don't want to see them promote Tim Storm like a vine star?
