The National Wrestling Alliance will be celebrating its 70th anniversary with an event in Nashville, Tennessee later this year.
It was announced today that the NWA will be holding a 70th Anniversary Show at the Asylum at the Nashville Fairgrounds on Sunday, October 21. The event is in conjunction with Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Entertainment and will air live on Fite TV.
The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship will be defended in the main event, and the NWA National Championship is returning with a new champion being crowned at the show. Nick Aldis currently holds the NWA World title and will defend it against Cody Rhodes at All in on September 1.
The NWA noted that more information on matches, talent, ticket prices, and the price for the show on Fite TV will be announced in the coming weeks.
Billy Corgan purchased the NWA last year, and much of the brand’s focus since then has been on digital content with their “Ten Pounds of Gold” YouTube series.
“It’s such an honor to be leading this historic brand into its next chapter,” Corgan said. “The enduring legacy of the National Wrestling Alliance — the men who forged it and the champions who defended it — illuminate our path in 2018. This event celebrates our first full year shepherding this brand while honoring the everlasting milestones, legends and champions of the NWA.”
