Yeah they're kinda hosed in terms of the actual big name talent given that the majority are under contracts.
I think they may have moved too slowly. Now AEW is in the picture and MLW is a much bigger player than they were two years ago so the pie is getting cut into more pieces in regard to the available talent pool.
And they ended the ROH working agreement, meaning they no longer have access to any of that talent. It really might just turn out to be a worse version of 2014-2015 Impact.
I'm honestly pretty excited at the prospect of the NWA having a weekly show of any kind - online, TV, etc. They haven't done much yet but what they have done I have liked. I like their production work on the 10 Pounds of Gold videos and what I've heard come out of Billy Corgan's mouth. He seems like he has a good outlook on the wrestling business. And they've made some solid signings so far.

I like the throwback idea of the studio days, limited seating. That's a fun idea. How it will hold up for the modern era, will people get discouraged if turned away? Will they be turned away, really? I'm not saying I'm uber excited yet, but definitely not put off by it either. Jury is still out, I'll wait and see once they get the show off and running for a bit.

I don't know if they will get turned away or not (I don't the venue's seating capacity etc.) But if so it would not be unprecedented. Lucha Underground turned alot of people away when they did their tapings at the Temple in Boyle Heights as those tickets were hard to get and, before PWG moved to the Globe Theater in downtown Los Angeles, I knew alot of people who could not get into PWG'S sold out Legion Hall shows.
