Former NWA Women’s Champion, Allysin Kay has announced (via Twitter) that she is no longer with the promotion.
As of today, I am officially a free agent.
Thank you to the NWA for the opportunities, which included one of my favorite matches of my career.
I am open for indy bookings & appearances. Let’s get weird.
Kay won the NWA Women’s Championship at NWA Crockett Cup 2019, by defeating former champion and current NXT Superstar Santana Garrett for the vacant title. She then lost the title to Thunder Rosa at NWA Hard Times in January, (a match she referred to in her statement). Kay recently participated in Bloodsport during GCW’s Collective weekend events in October. She has also recently been outspoken on social media about the current state of the NWA, sarcastically commenting on the championship being defended on a recent episode of AEW Dynamite.
Oh wait, our roster is like three people deep. Nevermind, continue.

The Watch List takes a look at what matches you should be watching while you’re at home and they come recommended by your favorite professional wrestling stars.
Stu Bennett recently spoke with WrestleZone Managing Editor Bill Pritchard about his new film, I Am Vengeance: Retaliation, which is available on VOD services now. During the conversation, Bennett pointed to Allysin Kay versus Thunder Rosa for the NWA Women’s Championship at NWA Hard Times as a match that really impressed him.
“I will say there was a match from earlier this year that I was commentating on from the NWA pay-per-view show called Hard Times. The match was for the NWA Women’s Championship, it was Allysin Kay versus Thunder Rosa and in my eyes that was the best match I’ve seen in years,” Bennett exclaimed. “I know there’s going to be a lot of people listening to this that perhaps aren’t as familiar with Allysin Kay or Thunder Rosa as they could be because they haven’t worked in WWE, but I promise you if you go track this match down it is superb.
“It has everything and it is a shining example of how far women’s wrestling has come over the last few years, from how people of my generation really remember women’s wrestling to now come to that. They were phenomenal and they just deserve so much credit for that.
The Hard Times title match between Thunder Rosa and Allysin Kay is available to watch on FITE; we also added some free-to-watch recommendations to the list and selected matches from their respective careers as well as Bennett’s WWE tenure.
