The new season of Southpaw Championship Wrestling is much better now that they have added actual wrestling matches to the show.

I doubt I’ll keep up with this because I can’t seem to watch anything consistently anymore but that’s probably the coolest fucking intro to show I’ve ever seen; Totally love it.

Just watched the show. Damn. If this was the creative and production direction he was going to take TNA, they fucked up royally. I absolutely hated the way Championship Wrestling from Hollywood looked, sounded, and the Wrestling was not good either. I feel the exact opposite here. Corgan has a vision and Lagana can still write a decent storyline so I’m looking forward to this now. The look and feel of the program was just awesome, and Cornette was a great color man. I hope his enthusiasm continues. And I hope Corgan can bring in some more talent. I have no idea how much money any of them are making, but Nick Aldis and James Storm have to be making a decent living...or something is wrong with them health wise that has kept them out of WWE. Still have no idea why Storm didn’t stick with NXT.

The Rock is a fan. Tweeted this to Jim Cornette:

Congrats Jim, the boys, crew etc. Stumbled across this show last night and enjoyed it. I grew up in territories and started my career at channel 5 in Memphis so I have a lot of love/respect for small scale, crowd tv shows. Cool vintage feel. Keep working hard boys. Rock

Nick Aldis tweeted back:

Thanks for checking out #nwapowerrr Rock. You inspired me as a kid and continue to do so with your incredible work ethic and class.

PS...you've done it all, but you've never challenged for the #tenpoundsofgold. If you wanna make that happen we are open for business. 👌😎

Just watched the first episode and it was so much like watching the old GCW/WCW shows from the Techwood Drive studio.

Only a couple of things missing:
1) The ring is too high. It needs to be knee-high like it was in the old days of GCW/WCW

2) They did a good job with the look of the ring ropes but they don't make the "whap-whap-whap" sound when the wrestlers hit them.

Very interesting that former NWA champion Adam Pearce, who has worked for WWE for years now, also plugged NWA Powerrr on Twitter. I guess WWE doesn’t see them as competition.

I liked it. Going in I expected to like the production for the nostalgia but I expected the wrestling to be a letdown, but the whole card performed well.

Watched it tonight. Mixed feelings. They did a magnificent job of recreating the old studio show with the flags, the atmosphere, the set, even the graphics. That said, it was almost a parody. It is 2019 whether anyone likes it or not. To have ‘80s graphics and a cheesy “promotional consideration” advertisement for Austin Idol’s wrestling school made it seem like a comedy program.

The wrestling itself was fairly non-existant. All squash matches until the main event. I understand why people wanted to like it because of nostalgia, but these same people would’ve killed back in the day to see real matches on free TV and we get that now all the time. Going back to squash matches is not really the way to go. They buried Jocephus after James Storm told him to go back to his desk job and then beat him in seconds. Isn’t he supposed to be one of their top guys?

Tim Storm cut an excellent old school white meat babyface promo, which was the highlight of the show. The match with Aldis was basic but good. The booking was confusing as they had Storm hit a low blow out of desperation but it wasn’t a heel turn. Kinda destroyed that great babyface promo from minutes earlier. People would’ve hated if WWE did something that illogical. 

Everything presentation-wise was phenomenal. Commentary was great, AEW could learn a thing or two from their video packages to get you to care about guys you might not be familiar with, and the opening with “Into the Fire” popped me but I’m a sucker for ‘80 hair metal. I can see others laughing at it.

I’m curious as to Sinclair’s thoughts on all of this; Billy’s NWA, AEW and MLW seem to be dominating the non E world and last I checked ROH hasn’t done a lot. rush is on top which could be interesting but the roster is looking kind of weak. I know in the past people have said Sinclair is happy but do they stay that way forever?

I've been wondering about ROH as well lately.  That MSG show seemed like their peak, and then the week after they were completely forgotten.  They are in a horrible rut to the point that almost no one ever talks about them, good or bad.  They desperately need a shake-up.  AEW is going to seriously cut into their base, and Impact, MLW, and the NWA are all in vastly better positions right this second than they were even 2 months ago.  ROH is just...there.

I’ve watched a few recent ROH tv shows and was really disappointed. I think out of all the current organizations, they offer the very least.

As fun as the NWA show was... where are they making money? They had a couple of promos for reduced DVDs, and I can't work out if that Austin Idol advert was legit or not. The old studio wrestling shows were made to sell tickets to the weekly live events, but this show didn't have any tickets to sell.

They did sell tickets for the TV taping and had a VIP Package.

I was wondering the same thing about the live events but I’m assuming something is in the works. I would love to see 4 to 6 PPV type big events each year on FITE. I’m really hoping the NWA is successful this time around.
