The SVGS def. Daisy Kill and Talos to Qualify for the 2023 Crockett Cup
Despite coming up short of beating The Country Gentlemen for the NWA United States Tag Team Championship at NWA 312, their pursuit of the tag titles apparently isn't over based on a recent angle (which I believe aired on NWA USA if I'm not mistaken). It was also logical for them to qualify for the Crockett Cup, so this was a predictable win for them. The match itself was whatever as Kill and Talos haven't been all that impressive in the NWA so far, but at least it accomplished what it needed to.
NWA Women's Television Champion Kenzie Paige def. Ella Envy
The actual title belt is still in the process of being designed, so Paige carried a trophy to the ring. Why wouldn't they have waited to hold the tournament until it was finished? I'd say that's bush league, but it's the NWA, so I shouldn't be surprised. The drama with Pretty Empowered has been hard to follow because they've been best friends one week and teasing tension the next, but I'm glad this was an actual competitive match from the get-go. It was a decent first title defense for Paige.
Knox and Murdoch def. The Fixers to Qualify for the 2023 Crockett Cup
Mike Knox and Trevor Murdoch getting their own team name (while not very unique) indicates their team will not be short-lived. Hell, they could be the early favorites to win the Crockett Cup, which wouldn't be the worst thing as La Rebelion need new challengers. Unlike the opener, this could have gone either way and it ended up being a well-worked match. Bobby Fulton endorsing Knox and Murdoch afterward was a nice touch given his recent rivalry with The Fixers.
Thrillbilly Silas def. Odinson in an NWA National Championship No. 1 Contender's Match
Silas earned his title shot by winning the Bob Luce Memorial Battle Royal at NWA 312, where Odinson was the last one eliminated. It was silly that Silas had to put his title shot on the line, but at least he retained it. This was a fine, physical main event. Odinson is a total bore to watch, but he's perfectly passable in the ring. Silas has been on a roll since the beginning of the year and his offense enhanced my enjoyment of this outing.
The NWA is in full Crockett Cup mode right now, which has given multiple matches more meaning and makes the tag team tournament feel important. Speaking of raising the stakes, the non-qualifiers on this show had just that as the NWA Women's Television Championship was on the line and Silas successfully defended his National title shot. The in-ring action on the whole wasn't exceptional by any means (when is it ever on this show?), but this was one of the better Powerrr shows in recent memory due to there being no filler.
