Billy Corgan bought the NWA but he's not renewing any of the licenses that other promotions have that have carried the NWA banner and thus had to change the name of their own promotions (NWA Smoky Mountain, NWA Supreme Pro Wrestling and recently NWA New South, ran by Reno Riggins is now known as the American Wrestling Alliance with Damien Wayne as their first champion). Do you think this is a smart idea for Corgan to allow these licenses to expire? Wouldn't have been better for him to HAVE these promotions so that way he'd have a vast talent pool to use once HE gets HIS NWA off the ground and rolling? I think this is a bad move business wise and burns a few bridges that really didn't have to be burned. What's your take on this?
I see it differently from you. The NWA, in its current form, is basically just indy wrestling with initials attached. If Corgan is going to make it something bigger, it will probably mean that he has a TV deal and that is worth far more than affiliations with indy groups. If he has TV, he will also have access to the talent.
