Aron Stevens and Rolando Freeman Interrupted NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Tyrus
I must have missed something. At what point did Tyrus turn face and Freeman turn heel? I know Tyrus faced a heel Matt Cardona at Nuff Said, but he's terrible and has no business being a babyface. Worse yet, Freeman was their hottest fan favorite at one point, and that's coming from someone who isn't a fan of his act. Why turn him heel and align him with Stevens? The dynamic was weird, but these two having issues makes sense after Tyrus pinned him on Powerrr last week and Freeman got involved in the Nuff Said main event.
Thom Latimer def. Jordan Clearwater to Win the NWA Television Championship
Well, this was random. Latimer accepted Clearwater's open challenge and won within minutes, so there wasn't much to the match itself. However, I'm not complaining. Latimer has been a part of the NWA for years and has a bit of momentum at the moment, so I'm not against giving him his first singles title in the company. It came out of nowhere because Clearwater hadn't been TV champ for very long, but this is one less title Idolmania Sports Managment has in their possession, so I see this as a positive development.
La Rosa Negra def. Angelina Love
Negra has impressed me in the last few matches she's had in the NWA, specifically against Missa Kate on the Nuff Said pre-show. That Frog Splash of hers looked fantastic as it did again here. Love isn't all that great, of course, but I thought they put together a competent contest. I was worried Love might win to get her heat back after losing to Kamille at Nuff Said, but thankfully, that was not the case.
NWA World Tag Team Champions La Rebelion def. The Mortons (Non-Title)
It was bizarre that there was no follow-up on La Rebelion beating Blunt Force Trauma by disqualification at Nuff Said. Don't get me wrong, I have no desire to see the feud continue, but why do it in the first place? I would rather see The Mortons chase for the tag titles, which is why I wasn't expecting them to lose clean here. Maybe they have a rematch, but from a storyline standpoint, there's no reason for it. The match itself was well wrestled and you can tell Ricky is having a blast out there in the time he has left in his career.
Pretty Empowered Interrupted NWA World Women's Tag Team Champions The Renegade Twins
Renegade Twins were discussing their tag title win last week and how much it meant to them, so I liked how they were clearly defined as the babyfaces here and got some overdue mic time. Pretty Empowered played their roles well, so although the back-and-forth the two teams had wasn't stellar by any means, they did an effective job of building up a rematch. The NWA is shockingly doing a decent job with their women's tag team scene.
NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Tyrus def. Rolando Freeman
This replaced the original main event of Mercurio vs. Magic Jake Dumas and I'm not sure which was worse. Yes, the top title was on the line here, but it was a total squash and there was nothing interesting or exciting about it. Rolando is a comedy character and Tyrus is Tyrus. They didn't have fun with it either like they could have. Instead, Tyrus dominated him rather quickly and that was it. This was the second straight anticlimactic ending to the show.
It was also announced that a tournament will be held to crown a new women's Television champion. The last thing this damn company needs is another title, but maybe the way they use it will exceed my expectations. Nonetheless, this was a fine post-pay-per-view edition of Powerrr. Nuff Said wasn't worth checking out on the whole, and there was nothing on this episode that left me looking forward to the future, but at the very least, it's encouraging they'll be running more shows in the months ahead. It gives the talent more work, so that's a positive.
