NWA World Tag Team Champions Aron Stevens and Kratos def. The War Kings
Stevens and Kratos spoke beforehand with Kyle Davis about their recent tension. Well, at least Stevens did because Kratos stayed silent. Stevens acknowledged their issues and told Kratos they needed to get on the same page. I figured that would foreshadow them dropping the belts to The War Kings, who became the number one contenders last week, so I was surprised when Stevens and Kratos retained. Granted, it was via outside interference from a masked man, and I have no idea who it could have been. The match was solid. I would've saved it for When Our Shadows Fall because I don't know what you do with the tag titles there instead unless we get a rematch.
NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis def. Mims (Non-Title)
Aldis cut a great promo per usual beforehand about the Battle Royale later in the night. He did a nice job of selling his frustration when he found out Trevor Murdoch would be a part of it, too. As for the match, it was basically an exhibition for Aldis before he defends his title at When Our Shadows Fall. Mims has shown signs of potential before, but this was too short to be anything out of the ordinary. It was nice to at least see Aldis in action on Powerrr for a change as his matches are typically far and few between. I know that's normal for a world champion, but wrestling at least once a month on Powerrr would be enough in my opinion.
Thunder Rosa vs. Kamille in an NWA World Women's Championship No. 1 Contender's Match Ended in a Time-Limit Draw
The stipulation Kamille put in place a few weeks ago was that if Rosa lost, she couldn't wrestle anywhere else but the NWA. Basically, it was a reverse Loser Leaves Town match for Rosa. Yes, it sounds silly, but I actually didn't mind it because Rosa's exposure outside of the NWA is obviously very important to her. That said, I assumed she would win, though we ended up getting a draw that protects both women. This was a very good match from her and Kamille I thought. Kamille is still relatively green and inexperienced, but she fared well against Rosa and had a strong performance. Rosa was excellent as always and brought the intensity. Does this mean we're getting a three-way for the NWA World Women's Championship at When Our Shadows Fall?
Trevor Murdoch Won an NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship No. 1 Contender's Battle Royale
This was pretty much any Battle Royale you've ever seen. That's not to say it was bad, but I can guarantee you I won't remember anything about it except for the outcome a week from now. As soon as Murdoch was announced for it, you knew he was winning. Has it really been 30 days already since he was "suspended"? Damn, that flew by. I'm glad this didn't go longer than it needed to, and they also managed to set up Da Pope vs. Tyrus for When Our Shadows Fall with Pope costing him the win. Murdoch has been a fantastic babyface since the return of the NWA and his performance was the highlight of this segment.
This felt more like a Super Powerrr show than the one they did a few weeks ago, which was noticeably shorter than a normal episode. This, however, was longer and featured three big matches. Two of which could have easily been saved for the pay-per-view on June 6, but perhaps they have something else in mind. Speaking of When Our Shadows Fall, this was the final edition of Powerrr until then; there's no new show next week. I thoroughly enjoyed this episode and all that it had to offer, but it's bizarre that nothing was advertised other than the main event of Aldis vs. Murdoch. I honestly think it's a stupid idea for them to be running another pay-per-view at this point, anyway. Sure, they have several storylines built up, but very little has been advertised and I guess they're solely relying on social media buzz for it to be a success. It will likely be a financial disaster, but I've largely been digging the product since its return, so I'm sure it will be somewhat entertaining on the whole, if nothing else.
