    Re: Billy Corgan to purchase the NWA.

    If he wanted to lose money that badly, just burn it and flush the ashes.

        There's an alternate universe where Billy Corgan and Rick Rubin have rival promotions engaging in epic Monday Night Wars.

                    No doubt. And that's the universe I want to live in.

                    Yeah. He funded Smoky Mountain Wrestling back in the day.

                            If I was a multi millionaire wanting to start a wrestling company buying the NWA name would seem like a good choice to me. What you need most in a new company is name recognition and the legitimacy of the name which is what he's bought. You may not want to acknowledge the past 25 years of the belts history but you've still got another 40 years before that with some of the most legendary names in wrestling that will be forever attached to your title. It's got to be a lot easier to get a formerly prestigious belt over than it has to get a brand new one you've just created. And if you guys are right and the NWA name is as toxic as you're making out then you just merge the belt into a new one keeping the history while changing the name.

                                Just go away Billy. The guy didn't exactly come out looking great after the TNA implosion.

                                And let's not pretend Billy Corgan did a good job in TNA.

                                Like his TNA stint, this is a case of someone with money, not necessarily talent or success in the industry, buying their way into a position.
