Billy Corgan Re-Launching National Wrestling Alliance


Billy Corgan has long been a fan of pro wrestling and is once again trying his hand at the business side of the entertainment sport. He has announced a new partnership and rebrand of the National Wrestling Alliance and has laid out a 20-year plan for the new league.

"We want to be part of a new revolution of how wrestling can be consumed by fans and matches can be presented," said Corgan. "This NWA brand dates back to 1948. The past few years have not been as kind as we would have liked, but we plan on building this into a powerhouse over time."

He added:

"People asked, 'What are you buying?'" explained Corgan. "We've looked at how the WWE has positioned itself and how Anthem has positioned Impact Wrestling, and now a brand like the NWA, which has built-in recognition value and a history that is unmatched, suddenly starts to become more valuable in this shifting landscape. Maybe we're not so crazy for buying these three letters after all."
