NWA Powerrr | Episode 1 | Tim Storm vs. Nick Aldis 3 (2019)


The NWA was founded in 1948 to bring a unified vision to professional wrestling and sanction one true Worlds Heavyweight Champion now called The Ten Pounds of Gold.  In the 70 plus years,  the National Wrestling Alliance place in history has been defined by the wrestlers, champions and events produced. 

Since the advent of television, the NWA has been there. When Ted Turner brought studio wrestling to TBS, the NWA was there with Georgia Championship Wrestling and then World Championship Wrestling.

Today, Lightning One and the National Wrestling Alliance bring studio wrestling to a whole new age.   #NWAPowerrr was produced with the age that wrestling fans consume their media.   The power is truly in the hands of the performers to walk to the microphone and be their true authentic self.  For the fans, it's the opportunity to see a classic wrestling format in a traditional media viewing landscape.

NWA President Billy Corgan talked of a 20 year plan when he took control of the National Wrestling Alliance.  As we enter our second year, NWA Powerrr is not only Billy Corgan and David Lagana betting on themselves but every talent who walks through that curtain.

This the NWA.

This is NWA Powerrr.

MLW Fusion Episode 72: Teddy Hart vs. MJF - World Middleweight Title Match


Feel the heat as Tony Schiavone and Rich Bocchini call the action from New York City!

Can MJF complete the Dynasty’s sweep of the Hart Foundation? This week on FUSION will we finally get the answer in a big main event.

One-half of the new World Tag Team Champions MJF wants more gold and this week on FUSION the bigmouth New Yorker will look to become a double champion when he challenges for the title he never lost in the ring: the World Middleweight Championship.

The first-ever World Middleweight Champion MJF has never gotten over Teddy Hart walking around with “his” World Middleweight Championship. So much so, MJF has run his mouth calling Hart a “fraud” – and that’s one of the more polite terms used when the trust fund kid trolls Hart on social media and in the press.

Hart will be attempting a record-setting 5th title defense when the two clash in New York City on FUSION this week.

The Dynasty enter the title bout with significant momentum. In the last month, the Dynasty all have won championship gold in MLW: Alex Hammerstone winning the National Openweight Championship and MJF along with Holliday defeating the Hart Foundation in a ladder match in Chicago.

The last time MJF and Hart battled for the championship, Hart was the victor… only for Richard Holliday to crash Hart’s post-match interview and along with MJF pummel the champ.  Thus, began the era of the Dynasty.

Nearly a half year later, the landscape has changed. Dynasty has defeated the Hart Foundation for the World Tag Team Championships. Brian Pillman was defeated in the National Openweight Finals.  Now, MJF looks to clinch the elusive World Middleweight Title. Can he?

In middleweight action, Promociones Dorado’s Hijo de LA Park wrestles Zenshi for the first-time ever. With both jockeying in the rankings, this match has championship implications.

After a near Chainsaw Mancer Massacre, Salina de la Renta vows to return this week with a vengeance. How will the 22-year old empresaria stop the seemingly unstoppable Bucksnort hellraiser? Tune in to find out!

The road to the War Chamber continues as CONTRA Unit readies to take the battlefield in Dallas.

Nick Aldis and Colt Cabana vs. The Briscoes | NWA Ten Pounds of Gold 55


At Ring of Honor's Best in the World, The Briscoes will face NWA National Champion Colt Cabana and NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis.   

This situation with these four men started at the Crockett Cup event on April 27, 2019 when The Briscoes believed they were going to walk the the Rock N Roll Express right onto winning the tournament.  The event in Concord, NC features huge moments like Colt Cabana winning the NWA National Championship.

Nick Aldis retained the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship at Crockett Cup by defeating his best-friend Marty Scurll in a hard fought, bloody war.  The aftermath of that war helped solidify their friendship and their competitive spirit laid another brick in the National Wrestling Alliance.   What did come into question at Crockett Cup was the relationship with Kamille and the man holding Ten Pounds of Gold. 

The Briscoes took to social media after the Crockett Cup to call out the disqualification that cost them the tournament and their anger towards the NWA, Billy Corgan and anyone affiliated with the alliance grew.

MLW Fusion Episode 63: Tom Lawlor & Von Erichs vs. CONTRA Unit


For 3 months CONTRA Unit has made Major League Wrestling their battleground. 

How do you counter three hostile outsiders possessing a 300-pound Samoan, a megalomaniac and a sinister scientific grappler? “Filthy” Tom Lawlor’s answer to CONTRA Unit is simple: call Ross and Marshall Von Erich. 

Calling the Von Erich ranch on Kauai, Hawaii, Lawlor got a quick “yes” from the newly signed brothers. Lawlor notes banding together with Ross and Marshall Von Erich enables the World Champion to have his own wild card going into a guaranteed wild encounter in this unsanctioned match.

Could the trio of outsiders finally meet their match this week on FUSION when they tangle with “Filthy” Tom Lawlor and the Von Erich Boys? Find out as CONTRA Unit battles Lawlor and the Von Erichs this week in the main event.

The Dynasty’s Richard Holliday has called out Teddy Hart for 2 weeks. The 6’3” college educated Connecticut native has smugly taunted Hart and this week they’ll finally meet in the ring. Will Hart make Holliday regret his verbal assault or does the Dynasty have other plans?

Fresh off of a stunning knockout victory over Ricky “El Sicario” Martinez, Low Ki will be in competition.  With rumors swirling about the lone wolf of Brooklyn’s next move in Major League Wrestling, all eyes will be on the former World Champion once the bell rings.

Newburgh’s nightmare Jordan Oliver is also signed to compete.  Undefeated since debuting in April, will the 19-year old continue his winning ways?

Mance Warner has a special message for Salina de la Renta and Promociones Dorado plus tons more!

Now, the 469 pounder’s undefeated streak will be tested unlike never before.  The ring will be reinforced as Barrington Hughes rumbles with CONTRA Unit’s Jacob Fatu in an encounter that will send shockwaves through New York City.  Can Barrington Hughes avenge fellow super heavyweight Ace Romero? Tune in to find out.
