Women's Invitational set for NWA Empower PPV

A Women's Invitational Cup is set to take place at the NWA's Empower pay-per-view.

On Tuesday, the NWA held a press conference at the Chase Park Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri for both Empower and their 73rd anniversary PPV. It was announced that the NWA Women's Invitational Cup will be part of the Empower card, with the winner going on to challenge for the NWA Women's World Championship at NWA 73 the next night.

Empower is taking place at the Chase Park Plaza hotel on Saturday, August 28. NWA 73 will then be held at the venue on Sunday, August 29.

Mickie James is the executive producer of the all-women's Empower PPV.

“For the first time ever, we are going to hold the NWA Women’s Invitational, where we will find the top women in the industry, the up and coming, the rising talent that we see as the future prospects of the women in the industry," James said at Tuesday's press conference.

Tootie Lynn, an independent wrestler from St. Louis, was the first wrestler announced for the Women's Invitational. James said the Women's Invitational Cup will be defended once a year during the NWA's anniversary weekend.

James also said the NWA Women's World Championship will be defended at Empower. The title is currently held by Kamille.

James has said she'll be wrestling at NWA 73 but doesn't plan to wrestle at Empower.
