This year has been a monumental one for the professional wrestling scene. Major seismic shifts has taken place with the emergence of All Elite Wrestling on Wednesday Nights, NXT debuting on the USA Network, and the resurfacing of the National Wrestling Alliance have all changed the wrestling landscape. I’ve skipped over NXT, tuned into the first two episodes of AEW Dynamite and over the course of this weekend (Saturday more specifically), I decided to wake up and head to YouTube to watch the first episode of NWA Power.
