Billy Corgan buys the NWA

Recommended Posts

A nice easy watch. Nothing complicated about that, which I really liked. Good old school vibe to it, and for all the talk of alternatives over the last few weeks.. this is it.

Brilliant. I was hoping for something like this and they delivered. They’ve got my time every week. 

We’ll see how quickly the ‘real men’ verbiage lasts until it wears a bit thin, other than that, absolutely great presentation & Wrestling.

Those brooch / lapels look amazing on those suit jackets.

Have to echo the sentiments of everyone else - loved it [apart from the dickheads going 'What!?' in the crowd which is not the companies fault] a real throwback feel and a true alternative. I hope this becomes a permanent fixture going forward.

I assume Jocephus is back to being poundshop Bruiser Brody now? The feeling of the show is great. ITV can learn a lot about how to present a wrestling program from this if they decide to do another round of WOS. 

It's be a great watch on a Saturday afternoon before final score.

I caught a glimpse of Eddie Kingston waltzing onto an NWA set and spewing out a classic Eddie Kingston promo and I was immensely happy for him. Arguably the most underrated talker of the past fifteen years.

I never imagined an "old veteran getting his last shot" would work on a debut show but it was a perfect one and done angle. I'd never heard of Tim Storm but the story was so easy to tell I was totally invested, also was great to see an older guy used like that and it added to the whole classic feel of the show.

Watched the live stream of Powerrr last night and have to say it was the best wrestling show I've seen in years. For real this is better than any WWE show in the past few years and better than last weeks AEW Dynamite.

It was just fun to watch, the production was on point, the match lengths were how they should be and the interviews throughout were brilliantly done.

It had that anything can happen feel to it and I loved it. I didn't even know who Tim Storm was but really wanted him to win. Plus Jim Cornette was brilliant.

How great was that Austin Idol advert as well?

What this one show proves is that you can go back. Something can go out of fashion in wrestling, or be taken out of the circuit, and you can bring it back and make it work all over again.

This was a traditional wrestling show that had traditional matches with a modern day spin. Everyone who worked a match did a great job and even Eli Drake came across well. Tim Storm had me convinced as well and I previously thought he was a slow, boring old git.

Plus the crowd behaved (except for the odd WHAT), were enthusiastic, and didn't try to get themselves over. EXACTLY the sort of thing I need to get interested in wrestling again.

It seems particularly perfect for what a lot of guys on here are into and I hope this is the reaction everywhere else too. I would also rather support the singer of the fucking Smashing Pumpkins than some guy with a billionaire dad.

I watched this about 3am when I couldn't get back to sleep. I genuinely thought I'd imagined that. I've still no idea if it's on the level.

Between this, MLW, and a smattering of Impact and New Japan, I sort of feel like I have my fix of wrestling.

I’m going to absolutely adore the rest of the series.

Just stumbled across the Austin Idol ad on Twitter and it gave me serious Jones BBQ & Foot Massage feelings, which is always a very good thing.
