In a recent interview with Jonathan Hood and Brian Rowitz of Good Karma Wrestling, National Wrestling Alliance owner Billy Corgan discussed several topics, including the promotion’s future on television and streaming platforms.

“I’ve talked to just about everybody in the sphere over the last few years, for a while I was in discussions with WWE, when they were more interested in bringing outside content onto the Network, that didn’t happen, they were very cool about it though, so nothing but love there. I’ve talked to every major platform in the world, I don’t have to roll the names out, because I wasn’t able to necessarily get those deals done.

I think everything from here is, we have to find network broadcast partners, we have some good news coming up I think that will surprise and get some people talking, as far as where we’re going, but at the end of the day, Dave Meltzer is not my friend, and of course if you’re a wrestling fan, you know who Dave Meltzer is, but I do agree with Dave Meltzer on one thing, which is if you don’t have TV at the higher level, you’re going to have a hard time drawing.

I think, at the end of the day, wrestling always works in conjunction with television. We have a very robust YouTube channel, where we put all our programming, and we still partner with FITE on our pay-per-views, and our numbers are pretty good on YouTube, so there’s nothing to sneeze at there, but until you can reach that larger public broadcast, whether it’s digital or classic old-school networks, you’re going to have a hard time really growing, so that’s kind of where we’re at right now, we’re right on the precipice of that.”
