I’d call that a big Rock endorsement. There is a lot of new wrestling coming at us almost every single week these days and that can be a lot of fun. With so much going on at once, it can be almost impossible to know where to start. That’s why it can help to have someone offer a recommendation, especially if that someone has had some success in the field before. That was the case this week.
On Tuesday, the NWA debuted its weekly television series called Powerrr. Commentator Jim Cornette was talking about the show on Twitter when the Rock responded, saying that he had caught the show and enjoyed it, saying that it had a cool vintage feel. The Rock got his start in wrestling in Memphis, wrestling on a United States Wrestling Association studio show before being called up to the WWF.
Congrats Jim, the boys, crew etc. Stumbled across this show last night and enjoyed it. I grew up in territories and started my career at channel 5 in Memphis so I have a lot of love/respect for small scale, crowd tv shows. Cool vintage feel. Keep working hard boys. Rock

And of course there is footage. Check out Rock’s time in the studio and the show he seemed to like:
Opinion: That’s quite the endorsement for a show that is just getting its start. One of the biggest things about the show was how different it felt and that means they can offer a unique experience. Having the Rock endorse the show is as big of a boost as it can get as he certainly has a high impact on wrestling fans everywhere. It’s cool that he did something like that and it might help the wrestlers out quite a bit.
