Kyle Davis Interviewed The Cardonas
Matt Cardona wasn't around for this promo, but everyone else in The Cardonas (Chelsea Green, Mike Knox and VSK) was present. They weren't called The Major Players here, but that's the name Green, Cardona and Brian Myers are currently using in IMPACT, which is much cooler. This was a pretty standard promo from the heels with Green doing most of the talking. It was solid stuff and put more heat on them. I'm glad Green isn't going back to the Hot Mess gimmick now that she's a heel and is instead taking a more straightforward approach.
Nick Aldis def. Jordan Clearwater
These two have had at least one or two matches before, though Clearwater is much more established now than he was back then. As I've said before, Clearwater is a skilled dude with potential, but I don't think his alliance with Idolmania Sports Management is helping him any. I appreciated that this was competitive and that Clearwater got to score some offense before eating defeat. It was a well-wrestled affair.
NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion Homicide def. Rhett Titus; Angelina Love Announced She Signed with the NWA
I love that Homicide has been a such a fighting champion, already defending the title multiple times since winning it last month. Titus was a perfect opponent for him because he obviously has a lot of experience as well. They worked well together and had a very good match. Each of these defenses makes the title feel that much more important. Why can't this same amount of effort be put into the National and Television titles? Oh, and Angelina Love is apparently now signed to the NWA, as she told Kyle Davis at the podium afterward.
Trevor Murdoch def. Aron Stevens
This had a strange dynamic. Stevens was portrayed as the babyface while Murdoch has been teasing a heel turn for weeks now. What's weird is that Stevens beat the hell out of some random heel on NWA USA three days ago, so there's a bit of a disconnect. I liked that they told a story, but I wish it made more sense. Murdoch's aggressive streak continued and his finisher looked great.
Angelina Love def. Tootie Lynn
I didn't think Love would have her first official match on Powerrr the same night, but here we are. I mentioned in my review from Saturday's NWA USA that I wasn't too thrilled with the possibility of her joining the division because I can't remember her having many standout matches in recent years, but to her credit, she had a decent showing here. Lynn looked good in defeat as well, so this was better than expected.
Kyle Davis Interviewed Idolmania Sports Management
I realize they want to give the NWA Television Championship exposure on the show, but as I've complained about a million times in the past, that means more of Tyrus and that's not a positive for the program. I still couldn't care less about this group, though the only thing that made this segment bearable was the fact that Austin Idol wasn't there for it. It wasn't completely pointless as we found out that Mims is likely next in line to challenge for the title.
Kyle Davis Interviewed Thom Latimer and NWA World Women's Champion Kamille
Apparently Latimer and Kamille had an announcement, but they decided to hold off on delivering it until an upcoming episode of NWA USA. I like the promotion for NWA USA, but that makes the stuff with Stevens and Murdoch from earlier even stranger because it's not like they're ignoring what's happening on that show. Additionally, Kamille again put the women's division on notice and Latimer teased challenging for a title, so this was nothing new.
NWA World Tag Team Champions La Rebelion def. The Briscoes
In addition to the NWA, The Briscoes have also made appearances this month for IMPACT and for Ring of Honor/AEW as part of Supercard of Honor, so it's cool to see them making the rounds right now. I'm actually surprised this match was given away on an episode of Powerrr and not saved for their next pay-per-view, but it's possible The Brisoces have signed with IMPACT or another promotion and they had to get this out of the way before they leave. Regardless, this was an above-average main event with some suspenseful nearfalls down the stretch. There were at least two occasions where I legitimately thought The Briscoes had the belts won and the finish with La Rebelion barely stealing the win was wonderfully executed.
I wish that NWA World Tag Team Championship main event was announced last week because it would have given viewers more to look forward to coming into this episode. That match alone is worth seeking out in my opinion, but the rest of this show was still super solid. Angelina Love joining the women's division doesn't do a ton for me personally, but I am digging what they're doing with Cardona's new faction, Murdoch's growing frustrations, and the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship. The Television and National Championship scenes could be better, though.
