Nick Aldis def. NWA National Champion Chris Adonis (Non-Title)
Adonis was apparently scheduled to face Da Pope, but Pope said he agreed to pull out of the match so Aldis could face him instead. Aldis vs. Adonis is a match I would've advertised in advance personally, but it makes sense from a storyline standpoint that Adonis wouldn't have agreed to it had they done it that way. I'm also not crazy about a champion losing a non-title match to a guy who won't get a title shot, but because he and Aldis are rivals, I'll excuse it in this case. It was a quality contest that got Aldis one step closer to Thom Latimer at Hard Times 2.
Thom Latimer def. Jaden Roller
Speaking of Latimer, he had a match immediately following Aldis because William Patrick Corgan demanded he wrestle. He said he'd face the next person who came out of the curtain and I was hoping for someone who'd actually pose a threat to Latimer. Instead, it was Roller, who has stood out the few times he's appeared on Powerrr but wasn't exactly who I had in mind. Nonetheless, this was what it needed to be, giving Latimer another win ahead of his upcoming clash with Aldis.
Kenzie Paige def. Taryn Terrell by Count-Out in a Social Distance Match
I've talked before how I was a fan of the improvement Terrell showed in IMPACT years ago, but she has been one of the worst parts of the NWA's women's division this year. She hasn't added anything of value to the show and gets the wrong type of heel heat in my opinion. I mean, a Social Distance match? What the hell was this? I'm not even sure what this was supposed to accomplish, but regardless of its intent, it was a waste of time.
JTG and Colby Corino def. The Rude Dudes
JTG and Corino teamed up in the number one contender's tag team tournament, but even though Corino's a heel and JTG's a face, it looks like their alliance isn't over yet. They had a good match with The Rude Dudes, who have been impressive since they started with the NWA a few months ago. At the very least,t JTG and Corino work well together and I wouldn't mind them being built up for a shot at the tag titles eventually.
NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Trevor Murdoch and Crimson def. Jeremiah Plunkett and Jax Dane
I thought that Steel Cage match Crimson and Dane had at By Any Means Necessary was supposed to end their feud once and for all? If so, why did they face off here? That aside, this was a solid tag team main event. They're clearly building to Murdoch and Dane as the next title program, and since Dane isn't getting the next shot at Hard Times 2, it made sense for Murdoch to pick up the win for his team by pinning Plunkett (who felt out of place in this main event and you had to know he was eating the pinfall).
This was billed as the "season finale" of Powerrr, meaning that there won't be a new episode next week ahead of Hard Times 2 next weekend (unless it's PowerrrSurge or something along those lines). The Terrell vs. Paige match in the middle was total throwaway and shouldn't have happened, but everything else at least seemed to serve a purpose and was decent. There are matches on the Hard Times 2 card that haven't received nearly any build on Powerrr leading up to it (including up to it), which is a recurring problem NWA has to try to fix with future events to make the week-to-week programming feel more meaningful.
