The NWA Worlds Champion has revealed that the company will now have an official day of celebration in the state of Georgia
On October 21, 2018, Nick Aldis defeated Cody Rhodes for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship at the 70th Anniversary show. October 21 will forever be an important date for the NWA, but not just because of Aldis’ title win.
The champion took to Twitter to celebrate the announcement of “NWA Day”. Noting the historic relationship between NWA and Georgia, Aldis released a photo of a document claiming October 21 will be recognised at National Wrestling Alliance day within the state.
Here is the tweet:
It was an honor to receive, on behalf of the @nwa, the Senate Resolution declaring Oct 21 "NWA day" in the great state of Georgia. @GovKemp and Senator Mullis were very welcoming and proud of the historic and continued relationship between the state and the NWA. #nwapowerrr pic.twitter.com/3yTeoSWHAZ

NWA has been affiliated with the state of Georgia since the territory era, with co-founder Sam Muchnick reportedly declaring Atlanta, Georgia the “leading wrestling city” during the mid-1970s.
Since September 2019, NWA Powerrr has been broadcast from the GPB Studios in Atlanta, which has also been known as the “NWA Arena”.
It has recently been announced that a former WWE talent will challenge for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship. You can read about that by clicking here.
