Jim Cornette to call NWA 70th Anniversary Show


With less than a month to go until the event, the NWA has revealed the commentary team for its 70th Anniversary Show.

It was announced yesterday that Championship Wrestling from Hollywood's Joe Galli will be the lead play-by-play announcer and Jim Cornette will be the color commentator for the show. As was noted previously, Tony Schiavone will also be joining the commentary team for the Cody Rhodes vs. Nick Aldis NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship main event.

Cornette tweeted about calling the show: "The return @nwa Title match with @RealNickAldis vs. @CodyRhodes was what enticed me back to broadcasting--it'll be a real stemwinder! (We're in Nashville so I must use a Lance Russell-ism!)"

The anniversary event is taking place at the Asylum at the Nashville Fairgrounds on Sunday, October 21 and will air live on Fite TV. In addition to the Cody vs. Aldis main event, the NWA has announced that it will be reviving the National Championship and crowning a new champion at the show.
