NWA World Women's Champion Kamille and La Rosa Negra Exchanged Words
This started out as Kyle Davis interviewing Negra before bringing out Kamille. Apparently they have history from when Kamille started training years ago. This didn't lead to anything significant, but I hope it was designed to plant the seeds for a future match between the two. Kamille has run through practically the entire NWA women's division and Negra is one of the only names left she hasn't beaten. Nega has been really impressive as of late and thus I'd have no issue with her being the one to take the title from Kamille.
Fodder def. VHS
It was the battle of bad ring names. Okay, I'm only kidding (but not really). Fodder and Angelina Love are both coming off loss at Nuff Said, so this was a simple squash to give Fodder a rebound win. I don't know if the idea is for him and Love to still face Kamille and Thom Latimer in an intergender tag team match at some point, but I have no interest in seeing it. This was fine for what it was, but there has been nothing interesting about Fodder so far.
Kenzie Paige def. KiLynn King in an NWA World Women's Television Championship Tournament First-Round Match
The tournament officially kicked off this past Saturday on NWA USA with Ashley D'Amboise advancing. If King isn't going to dethrone Kamille as NWA World Women's Championship, she made the most sense to be the inaugural women's TV champ. Instead, she lost in the round, which was certainly surprising. Paige looks to be breaking off on her own and perhaps going far in the tourney (if not winning the whole thing) will prove she doesn't need Pretty Empowered/Ella Envy. This was a well-wrestled match with solid showings from both women.
Bully Ray vs. Mike Knox Went to a No Contest
The stipulation was that Bully would get a match with Matt Cardona if he could beat Knox. However, the matchup never got underway due to Knox attacking Bully before the bell. The angle-in-place-of-a-match crap is such a tired NWA trope, so I should've expected it. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't exactly excited for Bully vs. Knox, but promoting a main event and not delivering is lame, regardless of the promotion. Knox putting Cardona through a table afterward was a nice twist, so it looks like Cardona is all alone heading into an inevitable battle with Bully (which will hopefully serve as his swan song from the company).
Several minutes were wasted on Aron Stevens and May Valentine going to couples therapy, and while I appreciate the effort to get creative and do something different, it lasted way too long and their storyline hasn't been my cup of tea. We also found out that Chris Adonis is cashing in his Champions Series title shot at the next pay-per-view to challenge Tyrus for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship, so that was notable. The rest of this show was serviceable and featured a few developments. Nothing great, nothing awful. Just an average episode this week.
