The NJPW and NWA partnership

  1. What do you guys make of it?

    It seems like NJPW and the NWA are back on working terms (Which they haven't been since Inoki left I think). Conway wrestled at Invasion attack and the IWGP tag champs the Killer Elite Squad (Davey Boy Smith Jr and Lance Archer) are wrestling at an NWA event tonight against the NWA tag champs with both belts on the line.

    Didn't the NWA just go through a massive overhaul of their entire organisation? If so partnering with NJPW is a good way to get this new NWA some cred and momentum. And NJPW gets a springboard into America.

    How do you guys think this will work out for both companies?
     
  2. TBH I didn't even know NWA still existed. Sounds like they're trying to use NJPW to garner interest in their product. If it means I finally get to see some Japanese stars on North American TV, I'm all for it.
     
  3. I think this partnership can only be good things for both parties, ESPECIALLY the NWA. I mean, they've been in shit for 15+ years already (not including the NWA-TNA World Title), so this can only help. How much will it help them? Time (and booking with hardwork) will tell. Rob Conway seems very good.

  4. Rob Conway of La Resistance is the new NWA world champ after Cabana and Pearce left in protest against the new organization and management.
     
  5. Wow, Conway? :silva:
     
  6. He's solid in ring but needs to get more out of the habit of wrestling "scripted" ala WWE. And that will come with time. Plus he has the look of a world champ nowadays. Dude looks good.
