NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Tyrus Announced His Entry Into the 2023 Crockett Cup
I believe The Crockett Cup will be the NWA's next pay-per-view in early June. I guess Tyrus announcing his entry into the tag team tournament was supposed to be noteworthy, but it only gave me one less reason to look forward to it. Jordan Clearwater stood alongside him in this segment and assumed he and Tyrus would be teaming, but Tyrus said that wasn't necessarily the case. I thought Idolmania Sports Management ended when Tyrus turned face, but apparently not.
NWA Television Champion Thom Latimer def. Fodder
This was a renewal of a rivalry from two months ago when Latimer beat Fodder back at Nuff Said. I don't know what Fodder did to earn a title shot and not Bully Ray at 312, but at least they have history. This was a perfectly passable match that didn't overstay its welcome. Latimer continues to roll as champion, though there was no follow-up on the non-finish to his match against Bully and no indication they'll have a rematch.
Natalia Markova def. La Rosa Negra
I was disappointed Negra didn't win the NWA World Women's Championship at the 312 pay-per-view, but at least she had a strong showing. The same can be said about this match. A win for Negra would have been nice, but I'm all for Markova racking up wins as well so she can hopefully work her way toward championship contention. This was a good match and Negra was able to look credible in defeat.
NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion Kerry Morton def. Joe Alonzo
Alonzo has been in the midst of the biggest push of his NWA career to date with Jamie Stanley by his side, so unlike Fodder earlier in the evening, it made sense for him to get a title shot. Alonzo can definitely go in the ring and thus this was a fun outing. They had nice chemistry together and you can tell Morton is becoming more comfortable as champion. It was cool to see the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship spotlighted in the main event as well.
Last week's Powerrr featured nothing but replays from 312, so this was the first real follow-up from the event other than what we got on Saturday's NWA USA. By Powerrr standards, this was a solid show highlighted by two title matches and an enjoyable women's match. The drama with Tyrus and Clearwater does nothing for me as the world title scene continues to be easily the worst part of the product right now, but this was a decent effort otherwise.
