It has emerged that NWA will make a return with 'Back For The Attack' alongside a brand new season of NWA POWERRR on FITE.
FITE had issued a press release with Wrestlezone, that the NWA will be returning to air with a PPV and a whole new season of Powerrr.
FITE annouced that the promotion would make it's return on March 21st with a live event, which will relaunch the company after it went on hiatus due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
Following the 'Back to the Attack' pay-per-view, NWA will have a full schedule of NWA POWERRR which will air on Tuesdays at 6:05pm ET beginning March 23rd, avaliable via a low cost subscription bundle, the show will feature familiar stars such as NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis, Thunder Rosa, Aron Stevens, Trevor Murdoch and many more.
Now new details have emerged on how low cost it'll be.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NWA had no other choice but to shutdown production for most of 2020 and early this year, however many title changes had been made at prime time live events that were put on by United Wrestling Network, but now March 21st NWA will be back full throttle.
In an interview with Billy Corgan conducted by Associated Press, he had talked about the deal with FITE and how the NWA never had any financial troubles. here's what he said:
“I feel like we’re finally taking the steps we were hoping to take a year ago,” Corgan said. “We were never in any financial peril. We were totally on a growth pattern. The plan for last year before things kind of hit the skids was to start pivoting. We were in discussions with Live Nation about running live events to help bring in revenue and expand who was watching the product. It was more about growing pains stuff, but we didn’t have any problems internally with the product.”
This writer is looking forward to NWA returning to the screens, hopefully it will bounce back bigger and better. With stars such as Thunder Rosa making headlines in the Rasslin' world, we can only hope that it will bring exciting action for any wrestling fan!
