Under the leadership of Bill Corgan and Dave Lagana, the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) has had a new resurgence in the marketplace of pro wrestling.
While talking with Fightful, Dave Lagana spoke about a wide range of topics including why the promotion does not have more championships. Here is what he had to say:
“I feel like now everybody gets a title. How many titles does WWE have? It’s like 20 something right? It’s like a participation trophy. Everyone gets one, and its fine. But I remember going to Summerslam 1990 and I got to see not one, but two title changes and it was the greatest moment of my life, up until that point, and still might be. Now there’s so many, and we were even hesitant to bring back the National title, but we thought it was the right time. same with the women’s.
I really ask people tell me in a five minute video why you want more titles. Explain to me, lay it out in a very succinct five minute video why you care so much for the Italian Missouri Jr Heavyweight title. If you can I will listen to your pitch. There is the whole belt collector world, which is why we released the national title the way we did – because trust me we knew what people’s reactions would be. Because belts are like Donald Trump.
Everyone’s got an opinion on all of them and I don’t have an opinion either way on Mr. Trump but people will have opinions. How dare people make fun of that little seahorse on that belt. That seahorse has worked really hard to be on a title belt.”
