ST. LOUIS — After the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) experienced enormous success last year with its return to St. Louis, the promotion is returning in 2022.
The promotion, which held four days of shows late last summer, will be returning on August 27 and 28 to the Gateway City. This is according to a news release Saturday.
During last year’s stint, the NWA held the Empowerrr and NWA 73 pay-per-views. They additionally filmed most of an entire season of NWA Powerrr from the Khorassan Ballroom. The historic venue is part of the Chase Park Plaza Royal Sonesta Hotel.
This time around, the promotion is holding its 74th-anniversary show over two days.
The venue was home to “Wrestling at the Chase” from 1959 to 1983. The weekly program on KPLR 11 featured televised matches with wrestling legends including Harley Race, Ric Flair, and “Cowboy” Bob Orton.
The program was a creation of St. Louis Wrestling Club president Sam Muchnick and Harold Koplar, owner of KPLR TV and the owner of the hotel. The matches were regularly promoted by the club, which was a member of NWA during the territory days.
“We made a promise last year to return to St. Louis and bring quality matches and wrestling legends to our fans,” said Billy Corgan, NWA owner and president. “That’s exactly what we are doing during this two-day wrestling pay-per-view.”

Match announcements will be announced in the coming days on social media. Other details relating to its FanFest and legends in attendance will also be available at a later date.

Those unable to attend the show in person will be able to watch live on pay-per-view through FITE. It will be available as part of their All Access Annual Pass on the platform.
