Trevor Murdoch: NWA Will Be On A Major TV Network In 5 Years

The NWA World's Heavyweight Champion believes in the promotion

A lot can happen in five years. Five years back and the NWA was barely clinging to it’s identity, until Billy Corgan took control in 2017 and re-established the historic promotion. As for five years from now? No-one can say, but NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion Trevor Murdoch believes NWA will be on a major TV network.

Murdoch gave his thoughts on the future of the NWA during an appearance on the Battleground Podcast, saying the following when asked about the next five years for the promotion:

“Five years? NWA [will be] for sure on a major television network. As for me, I see myself at the very least, a two-time NWA World Champion. I'm not gonna sit here and try to gloat and say, ‘Oh, I'm gonna be a world champion in five years,’ you know? Let’s… let's be realistic here, guys. Again, that goes back to NWA being real. What if I had one more, like a bucket list? I would like to find a tag team partner and become NWA World Tag Team Champion.”

Murdoch added, “I've got no plans on dropping the world title or losing anybody for a long period of time. But I'd also like to be able to help the company grow, you know, there's, there's gonna be a time where I'm gonna step out from a camera, like, I'm not gonna be in front of the camera anymore. I’m 43 years old. I've been in the business for a very long time. Physically, my body's gonna eventually Tell me one morning, and don't get me wrong it gives me hints every day, but one day it's going to tell me when enough is enough. So I would like to be behind the camera, and helping some of the next generation of guys, and helping create some of the next storylines and be able to just continue what we've started. I want to find guys that can carry on the legacy and feel as much pride in NWA as I do.”
