The Commonwealth Connection def. The Dirty Sexy Boys
Dango tweeted a few weeks ago that he planned on retiring soon, though I'm not sure if it was meant as a joke or not. As for Doug Williams and Harr Smith, I'm glad they're sticking with the team they formed in the Crockett Cup now that Williams' previous partner Nick Aldis is busy with Matt Cardona. This was a well-wrestled opener with good work from both teams. I really want to see Commonwealth Connection challenge for the NWA World Tag Team Championship soon, so this was a nice win for them.
KiLynn King def. Natalia Markova
King has been a regular on the AEW Dark shows for the better part of the past two years. She also appeared at the NWA EmPowerrr pay-per-view last summer. Meanwhile, Markova has been making strides on NWA USA this year and has been racking us wins. I'm pretty sure she was undefeated coming into this contest, so having the generic King beat her was mind-boggling to me. It was a really good match, but I was not a fan of the result.
Kyle Davis Interviewed NWA World Tag Team Champions La Rebelion
It's been nice to hear a lot more from La Rebelion on the mic recently as it felt like they stayed silent for their first several months in the company. They're very well spoken, or at least the one who does a majority of the talking for them. Much like they did at Crockett Cup, they put the entire tag team division on notice here and specifically called out The Briscoes. I'm really looking forward to that eventual championship clash.
Miserably Faithful def. Colby Corino and The Fixers
Miserably Faithful is James Mitchell's new faction consisting of Judais, Sal the Pal (a.k.a. Sal Rinauro) and Gags the Gimp. No, that's not a typo. His name is actually Gags the Gimp as the commentators called him that several times. I don't know who's under the mask, but that's got to be one of the worst ring names I've ever heard. Mitchell having his own group has potential, but not with those guys. This was a fine introduction for them, though I'd rather see the trio of Corino and The Fixers get the push.
NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Matt Cardona def. Da POpe
When Pope said a week ago that he'd be cashing in the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship opportunity he earned from winning the Champions Series last series, I thought Cardona vs. Pope would be booked for a pay-per-view or at least advertised a few weeks in advance for Powerrr. Instead, they rushed into it within a week. Cardona took credit for putting Pope in the hospital back at Hard Times 2, so this had some story behind it. It was a top-notch main event and I'm glad they received as much time as they did considering it was a TV main event. Cardona continues to do some of the best work of his career in his current role.
Although this was far from a bad show on the whole, it really only had one match going for it and that was the world title main event. While I wish they had built it up more than they did, the matchup delivered and it's not often the top title is defended on Powerrr. The rest of the episode was serviceable. I don't know what to make of the new Miserably Faithful faction, but the first two matches were solid and I liked La Rebelion's promo.
