Report: NWA Signs TV Deals With The CW

NWA programming coming to The CW

Huge news for the National Wrestling Alliance!

According to Haus of Wrestling, the NWA has signed two TV deals with The CW and an official announcement will be made "relatively soon." The deal will see NWA Powerrr and a reality TV show about the day-to-day behind-the-scenes running of the NWA air on the network. Filming has reportedly already started on the reality series and the project should be completed soon. 

NWA Powerrr is expected to debut on The CW before the reality series. The show is expected to continue to be taped in blocks but production upgrades have already been carried out for Powerrr in anticipation of the move to The CW. Women of Wrestling already airs across many of The CW affiliates and regularly outdraws IMPACT Wrestling, according to Haus of Wrestling, with the episodes said to average between 250,000 - 450,000 viewers. This has made the NWA optimistic about finding a solid audience on the TV network. 

For the NWA YouTube channel which currently broadcasts episodes of Powerrr, it was speculated to Haus of Wrestling the new NWA territories could end up being broadcast on the channel. NWA recently revived the territory system with Exodus Pro Midwest

Billy Corgan previously revealed NWA programming would soon be appearing on a "Top 20 network"

He said on Busted Open Radio:

"I have to be a bit vague because there's some other political aspects to this but I can now say that we finally have signed not just one but two television deals, and that announcement as far as where and who will be coming soon. But we finally now will be able to move off YouTube, not exclusively because we want to still do stuff on YouTube, but we now will be moving (to) a network partner.

"I have to be vague, I can't say who but I can say it's a top 20 network. I'm very excited, I've been working on this for over a year. Like I said, not just one but two television deals are involved. Two totally different wrestling-related products we will be offering in 2024."
