Billy Corgan Claims The NWA Has Signed A TV Deal With A ‘Top 20 Network’

Billy Corgan says big things are coming for the National Wrestling Alliance in 2024.

National Wrestling Alliance President Billy Corgan was a recent guest on Busted Open Radio. When asked about the NWA Powerrr show on YouTube, Corgan said that platform is a terrible partner for wrestling and that he’s recently signed two television deals for the company.

“YouTube is a terrible partner for wrestling,” Billy Corgan admitted. “I’m just going to say that flat out. Lately, because who knows how these AI systems work, they’ve been squeezing all the wrestling content creators. No one can figure it out, but everyone’s numbers are down.

“That’s across the board. No one knows what YouTube is doing, but it is mercurial. We can’t even put ads on YouTube because they keep labeling…any ad, even if it’s just Jim Mitchell saying, ‘Come watch Sanheim on pay-per-view,’ it gets banned for being offensive. We can’t find anybody to talk to telling us why we can’t put an ad on there.

“Even when we’re trying to spend money to get people to watch our programming, we can’t. Five years ago, YouTube was a good place to start, and it helped us build the brand. It started with the debut of Powerrr, which we just passed our four-year anniversary; thanks to people like The Rock putting us over, it kind of put us on the map. It’s been an effective way.

“I can now say, for the first time, and I have to be a little vague because there are political aspects to this, but I can say that we have signed not just one, but two television details. The announcement as far as where and who will be coming soon. We finally, now, will be able to move off YouTube.

“Not exclusively, because we still want to be able to do stuff on YouTube, but we’ll be moving with a network partner. I have to be vague. I can’t say who, but I can say it’s a top 20 network. I’ve been working on this for over a year. Not just one, but two. Two totally different wrestling-related products we’ll be offering. 2024 is looking very bright.” [H/T: Fightful]
