The National Wrestling Alliance Re-launches!

October 8, 2019

Did you know that Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins fame owns one of the oldest wrestling companies in the world? Well now you do!! WOOOOOOOOO!

Since May 2017, Mr. Rat in a cage (match) has been the proud owner of the NWA (National Wrestling Alliance) one of the oldest pro wrestling companies in the world (next to CMLL). Today they released their first episode on YouTube... and WOW! Somehow the crew at NWA have found a way of reviving the old-school studio wrestling show with a modern vibe and I’m quite impressed! 

Take away the glamor of pyro, the huge entrances, the staduims and you have just pure awesome wrestling!! Check out the first episode below.
