NWA star and reigning World Champion Trevor Murdoch was recently interviewed by Music Man Malcolm as he spoke about his desire for the NWA to expand its reach and bring back the territory system throughout the United States, as we had seen throughout the 1970s and 1980s before Vince McMahon and the WWF (WWE) bought out the territories. He said,
“Just like anything else, we’re going to grow and we’re getting bigger and bigger with each show. What I personally would like to see is for the NWA to not so much focus on just one place, but hitting old school territories. I can see us, if we do it properly and build it properly, having a one-night trip to Hammerstein Ballroom, but then hitting North Carolina and Florida. Do those major territories. I’m not talking about going in and trying to dominate. Too many promoters are going to go out there and say, ‘this is where we wrestle, we own this area and this region.’ Horseshit. Everybody can love it all. I would really love to see NWA follow a territory-style system. That’s what we’re closely getting to. We established ourselves in Atlanta, and that’s what you need to do, now we’re working towards the Tennessee end of it. I’m hoping, eventually, we can do a Florida run. That’s another reason why we went to St. Louis, NWA was such a hotbed for pro wrestling with wrestling at the Chase,” he said.”
Murdoch will be defending his title against Mike Knox tonight (Tuesday) on NWA Powerrr.
