NWA Powerrr Review - June 21, 2022
Kyle Davis Interviewed NWA Television Champion Tyrus
I've said it time and time again, but Tyrus is terrible and has no business still being the TV champ after almost a year. He's never been a bad talker, so this wasn't an awful segment per se, but what he had to say didn't exactly get me excited, that being the possibility of him cashing in on the "Lucky 7" rule for an opportunity at the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship. The fact he had seven successful title defenses and Da Pope didn't is a sham, and God save us all if Tyrus were to win the world title.
KiLynn King Challenged NWA World Women's Champion Kamille
Kamille has never been the strongest talker and that was once again apparent in his segment. I applaud her effort and I guess she'll only get better the more promos she cuts, but I haven't noticed a drastic improvement in the last year or so. As for King, we don't hear her speak often, so that was refreshing, even though she didn't cut the greatest promo, either. I personally didn't care for their original encounter, so I have no desire to see a rematch, but at least this segment set that up.
Nick Aldis def. Brett BuffShay
Aldis just made a one-night return to IMPACT over the weekend at Slammiversary to team with the IMPACT Originals in a winning effort against Honor No More. He failed to regain the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship at Alwayz Ready, so I'm not quite sure where he goes from here. He's back to being a babyface, but we really go back to him feuding with two-time champ Trevor Murdoch? I don't really want to see that again, personally. He feels like he's in a holding pattern for now, but this did serve as a fine showcase win for him.
NWA National Champion Jax Dane Attacked Eric Jackson
I don't think Dane and Tyrus should have cut promos on the same show if they were going to sound exactly the same. Granted, Dane's was stronger because he's better in the champion role than Tyrus is, but he didn't really say much outside of brag about retaining his title again at Alwayz Ready. Some dude named Eric Jackson, who he's apparently beaten before (though I have no memory of him), came out and attempted to challenge Dane only to get his ass handed to him, so that was a bit of a waste.
NWA Television Champion Tyrus and Cyon def. The ILL Begotten (Alex Taylor and Jeremiah Plunkett)
Cyon has officially joined forces with Tyrus and I have no idea who could possibly care. Is this supposed to be leading anywhere? Tyrus talked in the opening segment and I wish that was it, but alas, it was not. They faced ILL Begotten in this match and it was pretty standard stuff. I was bored by a majority of it to be honest. Tyrus and Cyon winning was predictable and nothing about this stood out, so it shouldn't have closed the show.
This week's show had much more stuff on it compared to last week's, but I actually liked last week's show significantly more. The main event on this episode was mediocre and none of the promos from the featured champions impressed me. Nothing happening with Aldis' match, either, so on the whole, this was a weak edition of Powerrr. I hope they can rebound with a better episode next week and correct course coming out of Alwayz Ready.
