The Atlanta Journal-Construction features a new piece focusing on the changing landscape in professional wrestling as of late, and particularly moving forward.
NWA Owner Billy Corgan spoke about the vision for his product in the story, noting he wants his wrestling like his rock and roll, “a little more rough around the edges.”
“We want something that feels a little more rough around the edges, kind of like how I like my rock and roll,” Corgan said. “We want to bring back the chaos and anarchy into the wrestling product.”
Also featured in the article is one of the Executive Vice Presidents of All Elite Wrestling (AEW), Cody Rhodes. The man who challenges Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship at the AEW Full Gear pay-per-view in November at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland shared his belief that when in doubt — look first at the product in the ring itself.
“When other things lack in our industry, the first thing you look back toward is the ring itself,” Cody said. “If the fights and storylines aren’t compelling, fans won’t come.”
Additionally, Cody also spoke about the “independent wrestling boom.”
“The indie boom turned into the AEW boom,” he claimed.
NWA’s Dave Lagana was also quoted in the article talking about the brewing wrestling war between WWE and AEW heading into their Wednesday night showdown, with AEW On TNT and NXT TV On USA Network going directly against each other in particular.
“They want to compete with WWE,” Lagana said of AEW. “As much as they say they don’t, they obviously are.”
