The NWA has officially confirmed that Chelsea Green will headline the forthcoming Empowerrr pay-per-view.
Green, who is also currently appearing in both Ring of Honor and IMPACT Wrestling, will be a part of the NWA Women’s Invitational Cup tournament, with her match reportedly taking the main event slot.
The NWA, and Mickie James in particular, have been working hard to pull together an exciting, cross-promotional, all women’s show.
Thus far, talent from IMPACT and All Elite Wrestling are set to feature, with AEW’s Leyla Hirsch challenging current NWA Women’s Champion Kamille, and IMPACT’s Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo defending against NWA staple (and former WWE star) Melina.
The promotion announced Green’s involvement via social media, with Mickie James tweeting in response, “Yaaaaaassss!!!!! C’mon #ChelChel you asked for the #MainEvent of @nwa #EMPowerrr you got it babe! #NWAWomensInvitational”.
You've heard the rumors, you saw the talk w/ @MickieJames…
Not only competing for the cup, but also a shot at the NWA Women's Champion @ #NWA73!
