Marc Coralluzzo

GM: When did you get started in pro wrestling:

MC: I've been around wrestling all my life. I guess I actually "got involved" when I was around 10, and started ring announcing for my dad (Dennis Coralluzzo) and Larry Sharpe. I was billed as "The World's Youngest Ring Announcer" at the time, which I probably was. After I got tired of ring announcing, my dad started letting me book and help promote. And that's what I've been doing ever since. As the years have went on I've done more and more with the promotion.

GM: What promotions do you work for and have worked for in the past

MC: I've only really worked for the WWA and NWA. Right now I just work for the NWA, and I think that's the only place I'll ever be.

GM: What sort of plans does the NWA have in its future, especially the New Jersey branch that has been making waves recently?

MC: Right now we're the closets we've ever been to getting on television. And that's our number one priority at this point. We're also in the middle of what could be the biggest angle in independent wrestling in a long time, the "ECW Renegades" invasion. Things are looking very great for us now. We're doing the best business in a long time. We're drawing the most we ever have. And we're putting on fantastic shows.

GM: What got you interested in pro wrestling?

MC: I never really had a choice. It wasn't something that I wanted to get into. I was just around it so much that I didn't have a choice. But the one thing that really attracts me to it is all the goofs. If normal people were involved with and were fans of professional wrestling then it would suck. Plain and simple. Pro Wrestling attracts me because of all the oddities and abnormalities and goofs. I just can't get enough of it.

GM: Why do you feel the NWA has had a sudden resurgence as of late?

MC: I don't think it's just the NWA. I think it's professional wrestling as a whole. Wrestling is hot right now. Everyone is doing good business. Renegade promoters in New Jersey are drawing close to a thousand fans per show. Wrestling is at a peak right now, and it won't last forever. But when the WWF and WCW do good business, then so does Independent Wrestling. And right now with the WWF and WCW fighting for a number one position, and the NWA resurging as a top international promotion, the real winners are the fans. If there's anyone that should be credited with the resurgence of the NWA it is Howard Brody, Dennis Coralluzzo, and Jim Cornette. Brody and Coralluzzo were able to rope new members while Cornette brought the NWA back to a national scene in the WWF. The improvement in NWA Championship Wrestling America comes from Donnie B. His attitude towards "shitty talent" has turned this promotion around. Donnie B. is one of the only people I like in this business, and one of the only managers I enjoy watching.

GM: Is there any thing you would like to plug? sites, shows, etc.

MC: Just the NWA Web Site: www.whoowrestling.com/nwa All of our shows and other stuff is on there. Check it out, it's a great site.

GM: Is there any other comments you would like to make?

MC: Support Independent Wrestling. Because without it there would be no WWF or WCW. We're the feeding system for the big two.

GM: Would you like to make your email address available to the fans?

MC: Sure... MarcNWA@aol.com
