Billy Corgan says there will be another NWA Empowerrr pay-per-view event, but it won’t be taking place this year.

While this year’s NWA 74 anniversary pay-per-view event is not being associated with the Empowerrr pay-per-view event as the company has done in the past, Corgan told NBC Sports Boston that there aren’t enough female free agents right now to run the event.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On why there won’t be an Empowerrr PPV this year: “I saw a headline recently that said I don’t plan on bringing [Empower] back and that’s totally false. What it was is that we looked at Empowerrr for this NWA 74 pay-per-view and unfortunately there’s an opacity of female talent available on the open market because there is such a demand for female talent both with WWE and AEW. There just isn’t a ton of free agent talent available that can work at the television level. Is there enough talent, absolutely, but you’re talking about putting people on international pay-per-view where you’re asking fans to pay money. You’re gonna put on an all female pay-per-view, by the way let’s all remember that [if] that PPV doesn’t go well and you put people in positions they are not ready for, it’s gonna blow back on those talents and the company.”

On planning to run another Empowerrr eventually: “We will definitely run another Empowerrr pay-per-view, absolutely. Hopefully next year. It’s just one of those things where it has to be the right time. Look at all of the people under contract with WWE and look at all of the people under contract with AEW and you recognize probably 80-90% of the top female talent is already under contract with those companies.”
