Billy Corgan, the owner of the National Wrestling Alliance, announced at the start of tonight’s episode of NWA Powerrr on FITE TV alongside Joe Galli and Mickie James that the NWA will present two back-to-back pay-per-view events on Saturday, August 28th and Sunday, August 29th, with both events to take place at the Chase Ballroom in St. Louis, Missouri.
The event on Saturday, August 28th will be an all women’s pay-per-view event with Mickie James serving as the Executive Producer, while on Sunday, August 29th, the National Wrestling Alliance will present the 73rd Anniversary pay-per-view.
Mickie James shocked the wrestling world when she appeared on last night’s episode of Powerrr to announce an all-women’s pay-per-view set for August 28. Ahead of the big summer show, James appeared on the Powerrr Post Show and discussed her announcements and plans for the women’s division.
“It’s incredible, it’s really, really incredible,” James said of finally getting the opportunity to work with the NWA.
NWA Champion (And Husband) Nick Aldis Speaks About Mickie James Being Released by WWE
“That’s just part of the game,” Aldis said of the release. “You know if you’re gonna go to WWE you just need to be prepared for the good and the bad.
It’s like you kind of jump on the roller coaster and holds on for dear life, it’s just sort of like that. That’s the big-time, you know what I mean? Everyone knows it now, it shouldn’t come as any sort of major shock.
“Certainly I don’t want to speak on her behalf, but I think the frustration was more from how poorly used she was and I think most people kind of know who was responsible for that. And it’s just like, that’s sad.
So that was like, nobody wins. They don’t really think about the fans. But at the same time, right away I got excited about the idea of her being able to be herself again and started thinking about potential matchups that we can help promote in our own way, on our own time and give it the stage it deserves”.
