Jim Cornette joins commentary team for NWA studio show tapings


Jim Cornette will be part of the NWA's new studio wrestling series.

The NWA released a video today announcing that Cornette will be doing color commentary at their television tapings in Atlanta, Georgia on Monday, September 30 and Tuesday, October 1:

Cornette will be working alongside Joe Galli on the commentary team. Galli is the lead commentator and host for the series. Cornette and Galli were both also part of the commentary team for the NWA's 70th Anniversary Show last October and the Crockett Cup this April.

Cornette's last scheduled commitment with MLW was in July.

The September 30 and October 1 events are the NWA's first TV tapings of the Billy Corgan era. They're taking place at GPB (Georgia Public Broadcasting) Studios in Atlanta. When and where the tapings will be airing hasn't been announced.

NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis (w/ Kamille), NWA National Champion James Storm, NWA Women's World Champion Allysin Kay, Eli Drake, and Ricky Starks were the first wrestlers announced for the NWA tapings. Colt Cabana has also been added, and Thomas Latimer & Royce Isaacs have since won the NWA Tag Team titles from ROH's PCO & Brody King.
