After the summer of wrestling companies getting on television the idea of another company securing a TV deal doesn't seem that unlikely. Over the course of wrestling history many companies have incurred some ups and downs various companies have went down and never recovered, but the NWA has always been able to comeback from everything. Current NWA President Bruce Tharpe who actually appear in Japan as the heel manager of talents representing the NWA in NJPW,
Last week Bruce Tharpe met with Spike TV officials in New York and though the idea of the NWA actually being on TV again might be a shock, but the NWA always comes back from a down time to set up their next period. Apparently Spike officials have stated in the past that they are interested in brining wrestling back to their network, but nothing is set up yet. As they are at this point not making any moves with wrestling, which is unfortunate but not unexpected.
The Observer notes that Spike is trying to run shows that have more appeal to women than pro-wrestling does. Which is strange to hear considering how long Spike has been well the channel built for men see what happens when UFC leaves. At this point Tharpe will join Jarrett and Dixie as all three companies attempt to land domestic TV deals for their respected companies. Imagine if the NWA would actually be able to get on TV again after so many years out of the limelight. I for one would love to see considering what it would do for not just wrestling as a whole, but also in promoting the history of our great business.
Best of Luck Mr. Tharpe and I hope to see the NWA back on my TV screen very soon.
