After a very successful "Parade of Champions" Event during WrestleMania Week in Texas this year - the NWA continues its expansion North with the announcement of a new promotion "NWA Big Apple Wrestling" based out of New York City.
This gives fans on the East Coast - a longtime WWWF / WWE stronghold - the opportunity to see the hard-hitting competitive style that the NWA has become known for all over the world.
"We are very excited to welcome this new promotion to the NWA family," stated NWA Director of Operations James Beard. "Our expansion into the Northeast opens up a brand new market for the NWA and we are very much looking forward to meeting the fans and providing them with an alternative product."
"New York City is just the first of several new markets the NWA has considered expansion into and we are also looking at eventually presenting events in Milwaukee, Chicago, Philadelphia, and we are currently planning another big NWA event for WrestleMania Week next year in Orlando."
This brings the total number of NWA-licensed promotions worldwide to 30.
Less than a year ago the NWA launched the extremely popular NWAClassics.com digital network that boasts the most extensive collection of vintage wrestling matches in existence. Currently over 300 of the greatest matches in history are online - and only a small portion of the library has been released.
The NWA continues to enjoy a steady corporate growth and shows no signs of slowing down as it develops NWAClassics.com and uploads new content on a daily basis - as it continues to sign up new licensee promotions that are excited about promoting wrestling under the NWA brand - as it moves into larger markets such as New York and New Jersey - as its licensee promotions present bigger and better live events domestically - and as the NWA continues to develop merchandising and television broadcast contacts worldwide.

The Bullet Club is a professional wrestling group, primarily appearing in the Japanese promotion New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). In the U.S., the group appears most notably in Ring of Honor (ROH) and also in WWE as "The Club"
The group was formed in May 2013, when Irish wrestler Prince Devitt (Finn Balor) turned on his partner Ryusuke Taguchi and came together with American wrestler Karl Anderson and Tongan wrestlers Bad Luck Fale and Tama Tonga to form a villainous stable of foreigners, which they subsequently named "Bullet Club". Before the end of the year, the stable was also joined by three other Americans; The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) and Doc Gallows. Wrestlers from the Mexican Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) promotion have also worked tours of NJPW as members of Bullet Club, which led to the formation of an offshoot group named Bullet Club Latinoamerica in CMLL in October 2013. At the end of 2013, Bullet Club held both the IWGP Junior Heavyweight and IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, while also having conquered three of NJPW's five annual tournaments. The stable marked a major turning point for the career of Devitt, a longtime fan favorite, who began his ascent out of the junior heavyweight division and into the IWGP Heavyweight Championship picture.
In April 2014, Devitt left NJPW and was replaced in Bullet Club by American wrestler A.J. Styles. The following month, Bullet Club received its first Japanese member, when Yujiro Takahashi joined and helped Styles capture the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. The following June, members of Bullet Club also won the IWGP Intercontinental and NEVER Openweight Championships, meaning that the stable had now held all titles NJPW had to offer. When NJPW added a seventh title, the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship, at the start of 2016, Bullet Club quickly won that as well. The stable continued adding members, most notably Canadian Kenny Omega, who took over its leadership in early 2016, when Styles, Anderson and Gallows all left NJPW for WWE.
