The Southern Six (Kerry Morton and Alex Taylor) def. The Heatseekers
The commentators returned to this as the return of The Heatseekers to the NWA and acknowledged them as former NWA World Tag Team Champions. I honestly don't think I've ever heard of them before, but a quick search told me that they held the titles four times before Billy Corgan bought the promotion in late 2017. This was a decent opener and gave Southern Six another win as they get closer to challenging for tag team gold. Post-match, all of Southern Six were interviewed by Kyle Davis at the podium and it was essentially more of the same from them.
NWA Women's Television Champion Max the Impaler def. Missa Kate
Similar to ever other NWA Women's Television Championship defense, this had a six-minute-and-five-second time limit, but Max didn't need half of that time to put Kate away. Kate managed to score some offense, but Max won so quickly and decisively that it was basically a squash and I'm not complaining. Kate put up a fight and they had a nice sprint, but I'm all for continuing to establish Max a dominant force by booking her in such fashion.
NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion EC3 and Jax Dane Went Face-to-Face
A Powerrr taping is scheduled for next Saturday in Sarasota, Florida and EC3 vs. Dane for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship will be happening that night, so this segment was designed to build toward that. It makes sense that Dane would've earned this opportunity after beating Blake Troop at the Samhain pay-per-view and he's a notable name for EC3 to defend against. This was a good verbal back-and-forth between the two.
NWA World Tag Team Champions Blunt Force Trauma def. Magic Inc. (Non-Title)
Surprisingly, this was a competitive contest and I'm not sure it needed to be. Magic Inc. are a perfectly fine team, but I can't say I'd take them seriously as tag title contenders. Then again, based on how The Brothers of Funstruction have been booked this year, it's not unusual for the NWA to put teams of their caliber in the championship mix. This was well worked, but it didn't leave me begging for a rematch. It looks like we might be getting one with Magic Inc. getting the better of the champs afterward.
NWA World Women's Tag Team Champions Pretty Empowered Addressed The King Bees
Pretty Empowered will defend the NWA World Women's Tag Team Championship against a new team named The King Bees next week, so this gave them a chance to promote the match. They typically do well with promos, so this was standard stuff from them. I appreciated that we got to hear from The King Bees in a backstage interview earlier in the episode so fans can get familiar with them.
NWA World Women's Champion Kenzie Paige def. Taylor Rising (Non-Title)
This was an instance where a promo from Rising either beforehand or earlier on would have helped make her look like more of a threat to Paige, who has riding a wave of momentum as champion. They had an acceptable main event and Rising held her own, but Paige winning was a foregone conclusion. Although this didn't belong in the main event spot, at least the women were spotlighted.
Last week's Powerrr was a Samhain clip show (featuring some full-length matches from the event in case you missed them), so this was the first real follow-up show and it was solid. There wasn't anything out of the ordinary about it, but they moved stuff forward and built toward several upcoming matchups. Unfortunately, the NWA is making headlines right now for the dumb stunt they pulled at Samhain and how it may have cost them their television deal, so I doubt the focus will be on Powerrr's increased quality for the time being.
