Review: NWA 73

It was quite the weekend for the NWA. This past Saturday was its first all-women PPV, EmPowerrr, and on Sunday NWA 73 took place, with both events emanating from The Chase in St. Louis. As with NWA Powerrr, these PPVs aired exclusively on FITE. If you want to watch EmPowerrr, you can do so here, and NWA 73 can be watched here. So how was NWA 73, and which of these two PPVs was the best? Read on for my thoughts.

Review: NWA EmPowerrr

On August 28, the NWA held its first-ever all-women pay-per-view, EmPowerrr, emanating from the Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis — a legendary home to a multitude of professional wrestling events over the years. In addition to EmPowerrr on August 28, the next day, on August 29, NWA 73 is taking place at The Chase, commemorating the 73rd anniversary of the formation of the National Wrestling Alliance, which took place in 1948. Read on for my thoughts on NWA EmPowerrr.

IMPACT Wrestling Report: Slammiversary Review

This past Saturday, July 17, IMPACT Wrestling welcomed back fans for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it did so with one of the biggest shows of the year: Slammiversary on FITE.

But now that the dust has settled, let’s take a look at this year’s Slammiversary!

IMPACT Wrestling Moves to Thursdays

Big news: IMPACT Wrestling is moving to Thursday nights, starting April 8! As old-school TNA Wrestling fans know, Thursdays are the night that, for many years, TNA brought us the hard-hitting action we love. With NXT moving to Tuesdays on April 13 and NWA Powerrr also airing the same night on FITE, it makes perfect sense for IMPACT to switch things up, and moving back to its classic night is a smart move. Below is the full press release with all of the details.

A two-hour PPV event on FITE, Back For The Attack was an excellent return to form for one of the most compelling wrestling promotions in the world today.

Watch For FREE: NWA Back For The Attack

This Sunday the NWA returns to PPV with Back For The Attack on FITE! Other than IMPACT Wrestling, the NWA is the most exciting and innovative professional wrestling promotion in the world today. The content they were producing prior to COVID was incredible, and I’m very exciting for their big return this Sunday. FITE was kind enough to give me a PPV code to give away so one lucky winner can watch NWA Back For The Attack for FREE! If you want a chance to be that person, follow the rules in the tweet below. I’ll announce the winner on Twitter this Saturday. Good luck!

71-Year-Old Wrestler “Action” Mike Jackson Tells All

“Action” Mike Jackson is one of the best wrestlers in the world, yet he’s 71-years-old. I first saw him perform live at Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore show in November 2019, and he blew me away. He was the highlight of the entire show, and I told him so afterward. The entire crowd was captivated by his speed and ability. In April 2020 he debuted on IMPACT Wrestling in a match against Johnny Swinger, again, blowing away wrestling fans, but this time it was on a worldwide stage. Around this time COVID took over the world, so that run came to a halt. However, as you’ll see in my interview with this championship wrestler who has grappled with countless legends, the best is yet to come. I look forward to the day when “Action” Mike Jackson returns to the ring in IMPACT Wrestling, and I hope I’m there to see it live. If you’re looking to enjoy some of his prowess while at home, give him a call at 205-936-9050 to buy a variety of DVDs, t-shirts, and more from the living legend himself!
