Century Wrestling Alliance
The Century Wrestling Alliance, formerly known as NWA Cold Front and NWA New England, is a New England-based American independent wrestling promotion located in Boston, Massachusetts. It was founded by Tony Rumble in 1989, a retired wrestler and manager in International World Class Championship Wrestling, and included much of its roster prior to and following its close during the early 1990s. The promotion eventually replaced IWCCW as the dominant independent promotion in the Greater Boston area and, in 1997, became an affiliated territory of the National Wrestling Alliance. As of 2007, it is the longest-running independent wrestling promotion operating in New England under a single owner, Ellen Magliaro.

Among the wrestlers who followed Rumble to the CWA included The Pink Assassin, "Surfer" Ray Odyssey, Vic Steamboat and "Mr. USA" Tony Atlas. As with IWCCW, several future stars of Extreme Championship Wrestling spent their early careers in the promotion including Tommy Dreamer, The Tazmaniac and The Public Enemy (Rocco Rock & Johnny Grunge) as well as established Northeastern independent wrestlers such as Amanda Storm, April Hunter, LuFisto, Alex Arion, Juggernaut, Metal Maniac, Al Snow, Tom Brandi, Handsome Johnny, Dan Quirk, Rick Fuller, Wagner Brown, The Extremists (Ace Darling & Devon Storm) and The Brotherhood (Erich Sbraccia & Knuckles Nelson). Sbraccia and Nelson later won the NWA World Tag Team Championship, as well as the NWA New England titles, while with the promotion.

World Championship Wrestling's Harley Race, Barry Windham, Kevin Sullivan, The Rock 'n' Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson) and the World Wrestling Federation's Steve Keirn (wrestling as Doink the Clown), Jake Roberts, Jimmy Snuka, King Kong Bundy, The Honky Tonk Man and The Iron Sheik have also made frequent appearances.
