Corgan said the opportunity is a huge deal. 

Beginning with the February 6th show, new episodes of NWA Powerrr are going to be pushed out via The CW app. To promote the show airing on a new platform, NWA owner Billy Corgan joined Busted Open Radio

Corgan shared that there were talks with The CW about NWA’s content airing on the television network side of their content distribution. He said The CW felt it’d be better for it to be on the streaming service. He added that he thinks the network knew what was coming with NXT joining their content portfolio beginning in fall 2024

When people heard that we were gonna be on the streaming side (of The CW), there were a few raised eyebrows as if this was some sort of kick in the shin and we had talked to CW at different times about being on the broadcast side versus the streaming but they just decided the streaming side was the better side for us and I think it’s because they knew what was coming. Of course, they’re more inside on the baseball than we are and of course with them signing NXT on the broadcast side but, being on a streaming service is a huge deal. The level of competition is really fierce as you see so this is a big move for us and it’s hopefully a big step into a bigger future.

Elsewhere in the interview, Corgan corroborated comments from NWA commentator Joe Galli that The Slimeballz (Sage Chantz & Tommy Rant) have been signed to NWA contracts. 

The NWA’s next special is Hard Times on March 2nd and matches from that will air on The CW app.
