After a very good When The Shadow Falls PPV that saw Kamille become the new NWA World Women’s Champion, putting an end to the 222-day reign of Serena Deeb, and the return of Kylie Rae on national TV, who officially signed a contract with the company, NWA decided to continue to push their women division with an All-Women’s PPV, taking place on August 28th and produced by Mickie James.
Tonight’s NWA Powerrr season premiere opened up on FITE TV. Owner Billy Corgan announcing two big pay-per-view announcements. The NWA will return to St. Louis from Saturday, August 28 through Tuesday, August 31. The promotion will be taping two pay-per-view events that weekend. The August 28 show will be the NWA’s first-ever All-Women’s pay-per-view, titled NWA EmPowerrr. The second will be the NWA 73rd Anniversary show, titled NWA 73, to be held on Sunday, August 29.
James will serve as the Executive Producer of the women’s pay-per-view. She noted that this is something she’s wanted to do for a long time, but has been cut off at every opportunity until now receiving a real opportunity to make real history with the NWA. She thanked Corgan for allowing her to handle the women’s pay-per-view and show that women’s wrestling makes money, and deserves the same top-of-the-marquee prime real estate as men’s wrestling.
Mickie James also expressed pride in the event to come. She said that she wants the best of the best, regardless of where they work or where they may be signed. She also wanted to see the diamonds in the rough that have yet to show their skills. As the first NWA All-Women’s PPV, NWA EmPowerrr aims to do exactly that. Corgan talked about how the NWA 73 will be held at the “literal, emotional home” of the NWA – the historic Chase Ballroom in St. Louis.
