Pretty Empowered (Ella Envy and Roxy) def. KiLynn King and Samantha Starr
Are Pretty Empowered 2.0 no more? Are they back to being just Pretty Empowered? Regardless, they will challenge Madi and Missa Kate to a rematch for the NWA World Women's Tag Team Championship at Friday's 312 pay-per-view. King and Starr were a random pairing for them to beat, so for that reason, this served its purpose and was perfectly fine from an in-ring standpoint. King signed with IMPACT last month, so it will be interesting to see if she sticks around in the NWA as well.
Homicide def. Salazar De La Muerte
To my knowledge, Homicide doesn't have a scheduled match for 312, so I have no idea why this match had to happen because it felt like a waste of television time. Homicide still has value, but he's been fairly directionless since losing the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship and this was proof that he's currently spinning his wheels. This was a straightforward showcase for him and nothing more.
Thrillbilly Silas def. Kratos by Referee Stoppage
(From my NWA 2023 review...) Pollo Del Mar was laid out by Kratos during Kratos' match with Silas on Powerrr this past week, so that was how this came about. I would have rather seen this given the Signapore Cane stipulation because of how personal their bad blood felt by the end. In fact, Silas made Kratos bleed before the referee called for the bell, so that was a cool visual. Silas has been really impressive lately and I hope he can continue riding the wave of momentum.
Aron Stevens def. Rolando Freeman in a Titanic Tampa Street Fight
I didn't know what to expect from this, especially since anything with Rolando Freeman isn't typically my cup of tea, but it ended up being the most fun main event I've seen on Powerrr in recent memory, at least in my opinion. They took full advantage of the stipulation by brawling to the back and getting creative with the weapons. It was far from a bloody war, but it didn't need to be. This managed to hold my attention and was mostly enjoyable. Stevens winning was the right call, though it is odd how Freeman went from being pushed so heavily to now losing several matches in a row. I don't think this had any significance in regards to 312, but oh well.
As a go-home show, this edition of Powerrr completely failed to generate any interest from this viewer in the 312 pay-per-view on Friday night. I've said this before, but most weeks I forget that there's an event coming up. That's how bad the build has been, including for the Tyrus vs. Adonis main event. The undercard isn't stellar, either, but maybe it will exceed expectations. Stevens vs. Freeman did just that, but this show was a waste otherwise.
