A top star with the NWA looks to be departing the company in the near future, as their contract is set to expire at the end of the month.
Colby Corino, son of wrestling veteran and former ECW Champion Steve Corino, will officially become a free agent on January 1, 2023. The NWA is holding their final set of television tapings for the year today, December 5th, and these will be the final shows for Corino. Corino originally signed with the NWA in June of 2021 and will not be renewing his contract.
According to Cassidy Haynes of Bodyslam.net, there is significant interest from WWE. It’s reported that when he officially becomes a free agent in January, Corino will be headed down to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL. WWE would like to have a look at him, and if things go well, it is expected that he will sign with WWE and report to NXT. It should be noted that his father Steve also works for WWE as a NXT trainer and producer.
