As we previously reported here on eWn, a rumored television deal between the National Wrestling Alliance and The CW Network is apparently in jeopardy following a controversial segment that took place at last month’s NWA Samhain pay-per-view event. Dave Meltzer had an update on the NWA and Billy Corgan situation on today’s episode of Wrestling Observer Radio.
According to an earlier report by Haus of Wrestling, the segment featured James Mitchell partying with several women and snorting a white powdery substance that was hinted to be cocaine.
The controversial segment reportedly upset some CW higher-ups who have since been pushing for NWA programming to air only on The CW app instead of the main network as was initially planned.
NWA CEO and owner Billy Corgan has dismissed the report on the matter.
The NWA and The CW have yet to announce any type of streaming or network TV deal. And it appears the deal may now be off with WWE NXT coming to the CW Network next year. More on that soon.

The National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and The CW Network were rumored to have a television deal in the works, but it seems that the deal may be in jeopardy following a controversial segment at the NWA Samhain pay-per-view event. The segment featured James Mitchell partying with women and snorting a white powdery substance, which was hinted to be cocaine.
According to reports, this segment upset some higher-ups at The CW, who are now pushing for NWA programming to only air on The CW app instead of the main network as originally planned. However, NWA CEO and owner Billy Corgan has dismissed these reports.
As of now, neither the NWA nor The CW have officially announced any streaming or network TV deal. However, with the news of WWE NXT coming to The CW Network next year, it appears that the deal between NWA and The CW may be off.
This potential deal between NWA and The CW was highly anticipated by wrestling fans, as it would have provided more exposure for the NWA and its talent. The NWA has been making a resurgence in recent years, with Billy Corgan at the helm, and a partnership with The CW could have been a significant step forward for the promotion.
It remains to be seen what will happen with the NWA and The CW. Wrestling fans will have to wait for official announcements from both parties to know the fate of this potential television deal.
