ST. LOUIS — After 37 years, the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) is returning wrestling to the legendary Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis.
There will be four star-studded events from August 28 through August 31, 2021.
Fans who can’t make it to St. Louis can order the events as a bundle or individually now at FITE.
NWA to hold FanFest and two wrestling pay-per-views
NWA will be holding a FanFest on August 28 and 29, which will coincide with two pay-per-view shows. The first all-women NWA PPV show, NWA EmPowerrr, will take place on Saturday, August 28 beginning at 7 p.m. Central. This show will be under the guidance of wrestling legend Mickie James-Aldis, who is serving as executive producer. James will not be wrestling at this event.
The other PPV will mark the 73rd anniversary of the promotion with NWA 73 on Sunday, August 29. The show will also begin at 7 p.m. Central.
More wrestling action in store with NWA Powerrr tapings
Television tapings for NWA Powerrr on FITE will take place on Monday and Tuesday, August 30 and 31, with times to be determined.
This marks the first time in some number of years that the NWA has been on the road for a major event. Most live events in 2020 on the road were ultimately off the schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The doors at the Khorassan Ballroom are wide open for full attendance. According to organizers, including owner Billy Corgan, the event is shaping up to be a historic moment.
You can pre-order the entire PPV bundle here to get EmPowerrr and NWA 73.
