Maybe we’re not so crazy for buying these three letters after all.
So what happens when Smashing Pumpkins and NWA both reunite at the same future Coachella show?

There's probably a Stephen Paddock joke in there somewhere, but it would be TOO SOON.

I watched Championship Wrestling from Hollywood last night instead of the latest bad PPV. NWA Champ Tim Storm appeared, and he looks terrible. A 53 year old guy who is super red, hoarse, and jacked for his age doesn't seem like a good idea.

Who the fuck is Tim Storm?

Can`t think of anything else to say about Tim Storm, really. Well, other that he looks like a CAW model.

It's not on YT yet, and I don't think you can embed FB videos on the board. Anyhoo... skip forward to 7:30 for the first NWA title defense in the Corgan-era NWA. Tim Storm isn't a good wrestler, but I don't think that should be a surprise to anyone. My biggest complaint is the ring. Nothing says rinky-dink wrestling promotion more than a teeny-tiny ring. There is no suspense in a submission spot when you can pretty much reach the ropes from the middle of the ring.

The NWA tried to make a big deal out of the first title defense of the "new era".  They managed to get a Rolling Stone write-up on Facebook and a little more publicity than they've gotten here in the States in years.  And it was a smart move to stream this match online for free and try to get it to go viral because they need some type of exposure, anything at all.  That said, I haven't seen the match yet and by all accounts it was average at best.  And although Nick Aldis is a former TNA champion, they probably could've gotten a little more exposure with Jack Swagger or just about any other WWE cast-off.  They also really needed to get the belt off of Storm but it seems like they're actually trying to push him as a big deal.  I don't see that going well.  But Corgan is trying, although I don't see any of this working.

Tim Storm keeps the belt.

As Russo would say, "Swerve."

"Average at best"! LOL

Storm was out of breath less than five minutes into the match. If they really want this to be the NWA, that match should have been three falls and gone the hour limit. If they had done that' however, they would have been carrying Storm out. At least they could have used their tiny ring as a stretcher.

That is not a "NWA" Ring. Its a Wrestling from Hollywood ring.

Not a good match at all for the first title match under Corgan. It reminded me of the first WCW match under WWE. Booker T vs Buff. It just that bad. They need a new champion.

Again, I have not seen the match yet, but PWInsider puts a really good spin on everything here:

The NWA title bout between Tim Storm and Nick Aldis has already been viewed by over 33,000 on Facebook, which has to be seen as a victory.  Whether anyone wants to publicly admit it or not, the NWA was barely a blip on a blip of a radar screen in recent years.  In just five weeks, the Five Pounds of Gold series has gotten people at least remembering and interested in seeing what Billy Corgan and Dave Lagana were going to do with it. 

The first step appears to be trying to add luster back to the championship.  The match itself was a good, solid bout that unfortunately had a finish that went a little wonky.  It appeared Storm blew up towards the end, which given it was the highest profile match of his life, is understandable.  It was one of those things where timing was a tad off and it could have happened to anyone. 

 However, I think for the most part, the build, the presentation and the surprise of the match streaming live were all positives and it's a nice start to building a foundation.  Seriously, when's the last time anyone cared about a NWA title bout?  Over the weekend, thousands did and they cared about one that featured a 53 year old champion with no national recognition and a challenger who hasn't been on TV in some time.  Any way you look at it, that's a huge plus, especially if there is a way to figure out how to monetize that interest down the line.

Sounds like he really wanted to like the match. "It was one of those things where timing was a tad off and it could have happened to anyone." The match was a turd. The bar for match quality is really high in 2017. This would have been a bad match in the dark days of 1980s wrestling. One okay wrestler, one low rent wrestler, in a rinky-dink ring, and a dead crowd. I know that they didn't mic the crowd well (at all?) but they didn't seem like they were getting too excited.

In the 70s and 80s, the NWA Champ wrestled for long periods of time.

In 2017, the NWA Champ is 53, not good in the ring, and looks like he needs oxygen and a stretcher after a 9 minute match

I haven’t watched the match but if he isn’t a good wrestler why don’t they get the belt off of him and on to someone at least decent? Is he the only Indy wrestler that won’t jump and actually appreciates this opportunity?

I'll put this here since there's nowhere else to put it, but Rob Conway is at the PC this week as a guest trainer for WWE.  Conway has probably been the most successful NWA champion of the past decade and at least has some charisma and is an average worker.  But he is probably angling for a job now and won't be available to Corgan for much longer.
