NWA VP David Legana Resigns Post Amid Accusations Of Sexual Misconduct

The National Wrestling Alliance has released the following statement:

“Pursuant to allegations made by pro wrestler Liz Savage on her Twitter account, 6/18/2020, NWA VP David Lagana has resigned his position, effective immediately. As well as production of NWA content is temporarily halted, pending a restructuring of executive management positions.”

Former professional wrestler, writer and producer Liz Savage came forward on Thursday, June 18 as a part of the #SpeakingOut social media movement, accusing NWA Vice President David Lagana of sexually misconduct. Below is her full statement:


“After being friends with Dave Lagana for four years he sexually assaulted me. I moved to LA after two years of him asking me to come out. He told me I was a real friend to him as I had been there for him when he was at his lowest, he wanted to bring me out to LA for work.”

“He was back and forth between (ROH/TNA) companies at the time (2010) but told me if I came to LA he would put me on NWA Hollywood & he needed someone to help him make the wrestling promotion agency he wanted to run a reality. I could even stay with him until I got my own place, & he’d show me around.”

“None of this happened except the moving part… I moved my whole life across country to find out his roomate who had said was cool with it… had no idea I was coming. We got along fine. Dave either completely ignored me or was on the road. No problem. I am self reliant. But LA is also way tougher than you would imagine.”

“I shared a bed with Dave, though nothing was romantic or sexual. In fact he never made a move on me ever during waking hours. I trusted him completely even though things weren’t going as planned. I figured work is rough and as a writer myself, I know focusing can be tough, and he had work transitions going on.”

“About two months into my stay, I had gotten a job and was working very little, my savings running dry from adventures all over job hunting, one night he was home, and we went to bed. Everything was normal. We had clothes on, I fell asleep.”

“I woke up in the middle of the night and he had his hand down the front of my pants underneath my underwear. He was also touching himself. I was scared. I froze for a moment and I pretended I was asleep. Then I tossed hard and pulled away from him, hoping he would leave me alone. He did. Then he kicked me out that week with less than a week notice.”

“I have spoken to very few people about this… mainly because I was mad at myself for letting it happen. I didn’t go to the police because fuck the police… they don’t help sexual assault victims. I didn’t go to wrestling Twitter because I knew it would get ugly and they would blame me and say I was just trying to get famous. I wasn’t.”

“And now I have nothing left to prove. If you don’t want to book me… oh the fuck well. Am I a whole mess of controversy in other ways? You bet. Am I malicious? Nope. Just pissed I didn’t break his fucking arm.”

It was also announced that “production of NWA content is temporarily halted, pending a restructuring of executive management positions.”

The last episode of NWA Powerrr was broadcast on March 3, and the promotion has been unable to tape more content due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In its place they have created content including the “Carnyland” and “NWA Girl Powerrr” shows.

Unfortunately, today it has been confirmed that NWA’s Jocephus, AKA The Question Mark has sadly passed away.

Jocephus (real name Joseph Hudson) has sadly passed away due to an undiagnosed medical issue, which has been confirmed by NWA’s President, Billy Corgan.


Jocephus, is a former NWA Southern Heavyweight Champion and spent more than 10 years with NWA, being best known for his work with Aran Stevens.

Corgan announced the news with the following statement:

It’s with a heavy heart that I share that my friend and brother in wrestling, Joseph Hudson, has passed away suddenly from an as-yet undiagnosed medical issue. NWA fans would know him as Jocephus as well as The Question Mark; where thanks to the great fans at GPB Studios in Atlanta, Joseph was able to receive the kind support in the ring he’d always dreamt of. He is survived by a young son whom he loved dearly, and if anything would pain him about leaving this earth it would be not being able to be there for his boy. RIP Joseph, love to you and Godspeed.

Several people within the wrestling world have reacted to the news, sharing their tributes to him.

Everyone at ProWrestling.com would like to offer condolences to the family and friends of Joseph Hudson at this time.

Nick Aldis Discusses The Upcoming Return Of NWA Powerr

Nick Aldis

The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, Nick Aldis recently spoke about the current plans for the return of NWA Powerr.

The show is set to return in 2021 following a break due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but there is currently no date attached to when that will be.


However, during a recent interview with ‘The Wrestling’s Cool’ podcast, Nick Aldis gave a hint at those plans, stating that he was “conservatively guessing” things will be back for Spring. He also revealed he has reached out to a few people he would like to be involved, but didn’t want to name any names.

“Depends on when we start up again. I would conservatively be guessing that we’ll be ready to do Powerrr again by the spring, and so I know who I — and it’s not up to me. I have obviously a fairly significant amount of influence, but I know who I would like to see on the show and there’s a few guys who I’ve reached out to and I’ve talked to Billy [Corgan] and Pat Kenney [Simon Diamond] and said, ‘Look, I’ve got this idea for this guy.’ But, I’m reluctant to say too much because one, given our track record of getting guys over and recognizing talent, the second I say their names, someone else is gonna try and sign them, and two because who knows what’s gonna happen with them between now and the spring? Some of them may end up signing a contract somewhere else so I don’t want to — I just don’t want that attention to go there.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions)
