They might need counseling. There are a lot of wrestling promotions throughout the world and some of them are rather prominent. These are the promotions that have been around for a very long time now and a lot of people have heard of them over the years. It turns out that the modern version of one of the most famous promotions in history might not be going so well.
On August 28, the NWA will present its 74th anniversary show, featuring Tyrus challenging Trevor Murdoch for the NWA World Title. This comes after NWA owner Billy Corgan pulled Nick Aldis from the match. The two have both commented on the situation, with Corgan blaming Aldis’ attitude. According to PWInsider.com, there is some truth to the storyline comments, as Aldis has been critical of Corgan’s creative direction of the NWA. This has resulted in heat on Aldis for promoting himself as bigger than the NWA itself. Aldis is still expected to wrestle at the show with a new opponent to be named.

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that can happen in any promotion but it is a little more complicated when the promotion has one owner and one top star. The problem for Aldis is that while he is important, Corgan, with the finances, is that much more important. Hopefully things can be worked out between the two sides, as the NWA has been a lot of fun while it has been back.
What do you think of the NWA? Which of the two is more important to its success? Let us know in the comments below.
