Melina def. Kylie Rae and Chelsea Green in an NWA World Women's Championship No. 1 Contender's Three-Way Match
These are three talented individuals, so I expected a pretty good match and they delivered. Granted, the outcome was fairly obvious that Melina was winning given all the interaction she's had with Kamille lately, but I appreciated that she had to earn her shot. It's worth noting that Rae announced just recently that she'll be stepping away from the squared circle again due to personal reasons, so this may be the last we see of her in the NWA for a while if not for good.
NWA World Women's Champion Kamille def. Tootie Lynn (Non-Title)
Lynn impressed me with the showing she had in the Gauntlet Battle Royal at the EmPowerrr pay-per-view, so it was cool that she got a chance to compete against the champ here. Kamille remaining dominant was the right call of course, but at least Lynn got to score some offense before eating defeat. Kamille isn't in action on Powerrr often, so I liked how she wrestled on this special show.
Lady Frost def. Skye Blue in a Mildred Burke Rules Match
Mildred Burke Rules basically entailed not going to the top rope and stuff like that. It was something different, I'll give them that. It actually reminded me a bit of the Pure rules matches Ring of Honor has had over the last year. They made the most of it and had a quality contest. Blue is a very likable babyface, so Frost worked well as her heel foil. I expected Frost to lose after she teased jumping off the top rope a few times, so her winning was slightly surprising.
The End Interrupted Kratos
This was such as weird, pointless interview segment. I realize it was designed to progress the story with Kratos and Aron Stevens, but with this being the EmPowerrr edition of Powerrr, this should have been saved for next week. I'm not even saying the mic work was bad. I just think the focus should have been entirely on the ladies for this episode, and no, Kratos briefly talking about the EmPowerrr pay-per-view wasn't enough. If nothing else, it was nice to see Parrow get fired up for a change. That was probably the most I've ever heard out of him.
NWA World Women's Champion The Hex def. Paola Blaze and Jennacide
I feared for this match, and sure enough, it was abysmal. Allysin Kay is easy the best worker in this match and everyone else isn't remotely on her level. Here's hoping this was a one-and-done for Blaze and Jennacide in the tag title picture because they have a lot of work to do in the ring. Hilariously, the women's tag titles in the NWA have meant more in the last month than WWE's have all year. I'm curious to see who The Hex will defend against next.
Melina Addressed NWA World Women's Champion Kamille
Since we already saw Melina in action earlier in the episode, I probably would have saved this for another time, but if the match is being done soon (I forgot when they said it would be), then I understand why they'd do it here. Plus, it was the EmPowerrr edition, so it didn't feel out of place. There wasn't much to this promo and it didn't last long, but what we got was good and I like the story being told with Melina wanting to prove she can still hold gold at this stage of her career.
Mickie James def. Kiera Hogan
The setup to this match was well done with Hogan mentioning that she grew up a fan of James but felt disrespected when James wouldn't automatically agree to face her. Hogan wasn't in full heel mode here, but considering it was her taunting that cost her this win, I'm sure that full-blown heel turn is coming. This was a pretty good match with James showing no ring rust at all. She's fresh off unseating the dominant Deonna Purrazzo as Impact Knockouts Champion, though she didn't wear the title out to the ring for this match because this was taped beforehand.
This felt like a mini version of the EmPowerrr pay-per-view from August and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I could have done without the segment featuring Kratos and The End, but everything else was enjoyable, even if not every match was an instant classic. It made for one of the better editions of Powerrr in recent memory and I'd love if they did this more often in the future seeing as how the NWA has one of the stronger women's divisions in wrestling right now. I believe the By Any Means Necessary event from last weekend will be airing on upcoming episodes of Powerrr, possibly as soon as next week.
