Eric Bischoff, the former General Manager of Monday Night Raw opened up about the newly revived, National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and its President and Owner, Billy Corgan.
Eric Bischoff comments on Billy Corgan’s NWA
During the 83 weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff talked about NWA that is run by Billy Corgan. He said that it is unknown to him why there was so much popularity about NWA back in the early days.
Though certain people showed importance Bischoff was not interested. He claimed that there was so much confusion about the property rights of NWA.
Eric Bischoff said, “It was such a cluster f***. Certain people felt strongly that the NWA had value. I was not one of them, partly because I just had no exposure to it. NWA was not on my radar. It didn’t exist in my mind. I didn’t understand it – why people were so desperate to hold onto this craziness. There was such a cloud over the intellectual property surrounding that belt, and there still is.”
Eric Bischoff believes that the resurrection of NWA was a mistake because of the confusion of ownership of NWA with WCW. He called the whole situation to be a cluster.
He said, “The whole NWA– sorry Billy Corgan, Nick Aldis. Nick, I love you. Billy, I wish you nothing but the best, but this whole resurrect the NWA thing was a mistake just because that NWA title has been drugged through the sewage for so many years. This was WCW right in the middle of it. I didn’t understand it then. It was such a cluster.”
NWA originally ran as a governing body for a group of wrestling promotions in 1948 and became the sole governing body in 1960.
However, in the 80s several promotions left the business and also to be mentioned, World Championship Wrestling(WCW) left as well for the second and final time.
In 2017, NWA became a wrestling promotion and Billy Corgan, the lead singer of Smashing Pumpkins took charge of the company. It currently runs under the parent company, Lightning One Inc, owned by Corgan.
