The NWA issued the following press release:
The National Wrestling Alliance has announced its latest and most ambitious project to date: “NWA Classics 24/7!” And it is scheduled to be launched on July 4!
“What’s more American than hot dogs – apple pie – and the National Wrestling Alliance?” asked NWA President R. Bruce Tharpe. “This is a project that we are extremely excited about. It’s something we have been investing in and working on for over five years. We believe that once it is launched, ‘NWA Classics 24/7’ will be very well received.”
The vintage collection of wrestling videos is from the personal library of legendary Houston Wrestling Promoter Paul Boesch, and comprises matches from the late 60’s to 1986 featuring some of the most legendary wrestlers of all-time. Paul Boesch brought in the very top wrestling talent from around the World, and this collection features them in some of the greatest NWA matches ever seen. Some of the matches being released the first month on “NWA Classics 24/7” include:
-Harley Race vs. Andre the Giant for the NWA World Title
-Butch Reed vs. Magnum TA
-NWA World Title Match – Flair vs. Wahoo McDaniel
-Kevin Von Erich vs. Chris Adams

NWA President R. Bruce Tharpe also sent this in:
Hello! Just as a followup with you – “NWA Classics 24/7” consists of the complete Paul Boesch “Houston Wrestling” video library. Many have original commentary by Paul Boesch – and feature some of the greatest wrestlers in the world.
There will be a website up next week – well in advance of the July 4 launch date: nwaclassics.com
It will be similar to the WWE Network and NJPW World – in that there will be a monthly subscription fee for unlimited access to the complete library.
The price will be $8.99 per month (less than both WWE Network and NJPW World) OR – a discount will be offered for those ordering a year in advance – $99.99 for the year – which computes to two months free!
The matches we released are just a sample of the 50 matches in our FIRST MONTH’s release!
We are releasing 50 of the best matches the 1st month alone – then we will update the website with 30 new matches every month – at the rate of one new match everyday!
And we have enough vintage content to update the website in this fashion for years!
The Paul Boesch video library comprises matches from the late 1960’s through 1986. The library was stored in an air conditioned unit and the quality and clarity of the audio and color is amazing. Some of these matches have not been seen in over 40 years.
We are really excited about this project and we hope that you will be too. We would greatly appreciate any press coverage you could provide. Thank you.
Bruce Tharpe – President
