NWA National Champion Chris Adonis and Thom Latimer def. Odinson and Mike Parrow
Adonis isn't a part of Strictly Business just yet, but winning alongside a member of the group doesn't hurt. Parrow and Odinson felt like a random pairing, unless they teamed previously elsewhere and I just wasn't aware. This was a perfectly fine match that was designed to give the heels another win and the focus was entirely on them. It was weird that Parrow got a showcase win a week or two ago and then he lost here. Granted, he wasn't pinned, but I don't think he needed to be in this spot.
Taryn Terrell and Melina Interrupted Thunder Rosa
Between Kamille, AEW's Britt Baker and now Terrell, Rosa is making enemies left and right everywhere she goes. She's one of the biggest female stars in all of wrestling right now, so I'm glad she's featured as prominently as she is. Terrell was on commentary at Back for the Attack and will apparently be a heel going forward. Meanwhile, Melina desperately wants to be Rosa's friend. This successfully progressed that story and I'm curious to see where it will go. If Melina doesn't eventually betray Rosa, I'd be shocked.
Slice Boogie and Mims def. Crimson and Jax Dane
It was brought up at Back for the Attack, but I guess Crimson and Dane are longtime tag team partners. I wasn't closely following the NWA before the launch of Powerrr in late 2019, so I personally can't say I care about them teasing tension. That's what happened here and that's what cost them the victory. Boogie and Sims have been nicely showcased in recent weeks, so them winning shouldn't have come as much of a surprise. This was a decent match.
NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis Addressed Strictly Business
I figured this would be where Aldis announced Adonis as the newest member of Strictly Business, especially coming off his victory with Latimer earlier in the evening, but apparently not. Instead, he said that no one's spot in the group is guaranteed. He then issued an open invite to anyone in any promotion to come join Strictly Business. I'm intrigued to see what the follow-up with that will be. I'd love to see someone from AEW make an appearance considering the working relationship those two companies have.
NWA Television Champion Da Pope def. Fred Rosser
Rosser is the former Darren Young and I've always been high on him as a singles competitor, despite his last few years in WWE being fairly uneventful. That said, I wish this bout was given a bit more build. We know who Pope is and what he's all about, but what about Rosser? What brings him to the NWA? Nonetheless, this was a quality contest with Pope retaining the title. It looks like Tyrus is going for the gold eventually and I can't say I'm thrilled about that. Pope has a lot left to offer at this stage of his career, whereas Tyrus is just a bore.
There wasn't a ton worth writing home about from an in-ring standpoint on this edition of Powerrr, but at least the main event was enjoyable for what it was. Again, I'm not a fan of where that title picture is going with Tyrus challenging for the championship, so hopefully they can get it out of the way one of these weeks and move on. There was also solid storyline progression sprinkled in without and thus it was a serviceable show on the whole.
