NWA recently streamed their latest episode of NWA USA. They had a talent meeting at the latest NWA tapings. It appears that more details are coming from the event.
Fightful reported behind their paywall that the recounting of the roster had a lot of variation in it. Many veterans thought the meeting wasn’t urgent and was “a waste of time.” There were many extras present in the meetings, though the veterans felt that the meeting was more about them than the extras.
Luke Hawx spoke about a few things, but it wasn’t an engaging experience for many at the scene. However, others made sense out of it given how he’s in the business of promoting the upcoming NWA Hard Times taping.
Luke Hawx spoke about that aspect of things, and it turned some people off, but others saw where he was coming from because he’s in promotional business with NWA for the upcoming Hard Times taping. Despite that “turning some people off” there wasn’t said to be any heat, just some veterans thinking they didn’t need to waste their time with the meeting.
The veterans didn’t have any heat at the meetings, as per the reports. One veteran, in particular, noted that the meeting didn’t have anything “newsworthy,” which was pretty usual stuff in the meetings.
One veteran however, said that nothing newsworthy really happened during the meeting, and it wasn’t unlike anything else they’ve experienced. They just felt like it caught some people off guard because almost nobody there was contracted full time, and they’re around for one weekend every couple of months.
Jay Bradley, Sal Rinauro, Caprice Coleman, and Luke Hawx all took the stage in the meeting. However, the NWA management wasn’t seemingly involved with it at all. Several talents called Pat Kenney’s appearance towards the end of the meeting “overblown,” given the initial build-up. One star even walked out of it, but only because it seemed unsubstantial.
