2018 NWA THREAD (the Billy Corgan one)

Recommended Posts

Not a ton of new footage if you watched All In, but if you didn’t, the match highlights here are pretty extensive. New footage does include Kota Ibushi petting Pharaoh, however, so quality over quantity.

Nick Aldis defeated Doug Williams at the Media Con event in Manchester this morning to become number one contender for the NWA title it's gonna be Cody vs Aldis 2 in Nashville.

Cody will be appearing for the NWA at CWF-Hollywood's tapings next Sunday. No clue if it's a match or just a promo or even just signing autographs.

I haven't seen anything yet about how much ROH is letting him do with the NWA.

Really well done video that illustrates the importance of the Championship to both Cody and Nick and also has me excited for the rematch.

Is it foolish to presume that Billy, Cody and ROH worked out a plan ahead of time about his dates before they decided on the title change?

I don't think the match happens at All In if they didn't have a plan in place. I wouldn't be surprised if Billy Corgan's end game was always getting the title to Cody.

Probably we will see if plan has been worked out or not when Cody/Aldis rematch happens. If he drops it back to Aldis then thats that probably.

Where can I get that lapel pin of the Domed Globe? That will be a very nice addition to my vest.

If that happens, the NWA should be burnt to the ground. What a goddamn stupid move that would be. Literally the only time Corgan's NWA felt like it had any momentum has been every single day when Aldis didn't have the belt. If Cody is only a short-term champ, they need to find someone else to hold the title.

Though to be fair, if Cody truly wanted to cosplay as his father with his NWA Title reign, losing the title six weeks later would be very much in line with following in his father's footsteps.

But otherwise, I agree that putting the belt back on Aldis after all the buzz Cody's win has gotten would be a major backwards move for Corgan.

Except there's no Ric Flair in this scenario to drop the title back to.

i think it's going to come down to commitments. will Cody take the time to appear for CWFH and do those 10 pounds of gold shows?  will he still take indy bookings as the nwa champ? with his ROH contract, CAN he even do these things?  i guess we will see

Corgan realizes he needs good press so he will be riding the Bullet Club train as long as possible.

Every holder from here on out will likely be a top indy wrestler.

The NWA is not at the point where they can run their own shows, pay a roster, and do tv.  They need all the good press they can get.

Haven't even watched the video, but the answer will always be Jocephus.

Jocephus' spiritual advisor will try to interfere only to get a Superkick Party from the Young Bucks.

It might cost him another 3% of the vision in his eye...

And then they proceeded to announce the first person in the tournament was... Colt Cabana

Cody vs Aldis is also 2 out of 3 falls.

Cody as IWGP US Champ makes me think he's not going to be NWA Champ for very long but Aldis regaining the Championship seems like a step back to me. Aldis isn't the worlds worst wrestler but Cody has alot of buzz right now and him as NWA Champion means the little will be given some mainstream (in terms of indie wrestling) coverage.

Im interested in the 8 men who will be announced for the National Heavyweight championship tournament. Im half expecting Jeff Jarrett to be one of them.

The first thing I thought of with Cody winning the IWGP US title is that he's dropping the NWA title back to Aldis. Cody should be holding onto the NWA title and shouldn't have beaten Juice for the US title.

Yes, but then the NWA champion loses. Having Cody being Juice's first title defence seems like a poorly thought out idea.
