So apparently the NWA purchase is so confusing not even the actual NWA brands know what`s going on. It appears that a number of ex-NWA groups have united to form... the AWA? Is this even legal?

Bonus Reno Riggins has been promoted from former WWF job guy to Real-Fake-AWA important guy. I never saw Reno Riggins talk, let alone cut a promo, but there you go. It DOES have better editing and presentation than your average NWA indy, and the way a shitty indy can grow is by teaming with other shitty indys, so it`s not a bad move. The wrestling itself is generic redneck NWA indy stuff.
Still, I DO have one question:
What the hell is going on

Reno Riggins has been a player on the indy scene for more than 20 years now.

Squishy is right though, it's ridiculous that there isn't something in place legally to keep just anybody from using the name.

Well since Verne's AWA was American Wrestling Association and I think WWE owns the rights to it. I think that is how the dale gagne lawsuit went down.

I think American Wrestling Alliance is not own by anyone. It died in 64.

Reno was a decent hand in the ring and an OK tag wrestler with Steven Dunn. I prefer the Tennessee Volz team to the Southern Rockers actually.
