We’ll have to wait and see if it returns to the calendar next year, but NWA Empowerrr will be an annual event if you ask Mickie James.

The women’s wrestling legend recently spoke with the Shining Wizards about how she hopes to make this weekend’s all-women’s event happen every year. Currently, the NWA Women’s Invitational will be an annual event at anniversary weekend, but she hopes that Empowerrr will join it as a regular event on the calendar.

“We’re hoping. I’m hoping. We have definitely talked about this, especially because we’re introducing the (Women’s Invitational) Cup as an inaugural thing. The Cup will happen every single year. The whole deal is we’re going to find the top ten prospects or the top ten women that we think would make incredible NWA women’s champions and every year we’ll have this Cup. So there will be one winner, and she will always get a championship title shot at the NWA women’s champion. So, this first one will be the very next night at 73. My hope is that Empowerrr is an annual thing and we can present this Cup at every Empowerrr, and we can keep moving forward. But I do feel this is the first of many women-driven products for NWA as a whole, so I’m excited about that.”
