Statement from Billy Corgan 

“Last week on Powerrr, Chris Adonis, the reigning NWA National Champion, and Thom Latimer, a former tag champion were offered, and accepted, a match against Aron Stevens and JR Kratos for the NWA World Tag Team Championships. As such, the two gentlemen did not appear in time for last week’s main event, nor did they convey any reason, in person or otherwise, that would have prevented them from competing, such as injury or a personal matter. Additionally, Nick Aldis, the reigning NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, left our program before it’ completion, and like the two I mentioned before, has not responded to our every request for either an explanation or confirmation, that they’d appear on this week’s edition of NWA Powerrr. As well, Kamille, also affiliated with Aldis’ Strictly Business group, did respond via a text message, but only to say she was “fine” and would be a tonight’s event.

So given the gravity of these circumstances, and as a demonstration that this organization is ever reliant on the trust of our great fans to present to them fair and impartial contests, the NWA as a governing body must act; and act immediately. So forthwith, both Adonis and Latimer are stripped of their NWA Tag Title opportunity, as well as all monies they might have received for appearing. As for Nick Aldis, he is hereby docked one month’s salary, which will be donated to charity, and he, like Adonis and Latimer, are expected to appear on next week’s show or their contracts with the NWA, and both Aldis and Adonis’ reigns as champions, will come to an end. And so to our great fans, and to turn the page in a positive direction, there will be a match between two great, veteran teams tonight to determine who will face Aron Stevens and JR Kratos at next week’s Powerrr for The NWA Tag Titles.

NWA President,

William Patrick Corgan”
