Mims def. Zicky Dice to Win the NWA Television Championship Tournament to Win the Vacant NWA Television Championship
Mims is one of those guys who has been built up before but has never been the big one. That's why I'm happy the NWA finally pulled the trigger with him here. Dice had an enjoyable run as NWA Television Champion years ago, but it wasn't necessary to put the belt back on him. They had a quality contest and Mims winning felt like a big moment. Here's hoping he's booked well as champ and doesn't lose it immediately like I fear he might.
The Southern Six (Kerry Morton and Alex Taylor) def. The Spectaculars (Rush and Rolando Freeman)
Wait, The Spectaculars are still a thing? Brady Pierce already left the group and tension was tension between the Freeman brothers, but it looks like they're sticking together for now. Southern Six have been getting a pretty decent push in recent months and it made sense for them to go over. Now that Morton is out of the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship picture, I can see them chasing the NWA World Tag Team Championship eventually. This was a well-wrestled match.
Jax Dane Went Face-to-Face with Chris Silvio Esq. and "Bulletproof" Blake Troop
I assumed Dane was finished with these two after he beat Silvio last week, but it makes sense to have him face Troops to put this rivalry to rest. Granted, it's not a match I'm looking forward to, but maybe they'll exceed expectations with a fun hoss fight. Dane was basically the babyface here and played his role well. They established their match will have a Submission stipulation, which is fitting given Troop's MMA background.
Judais def. Sal the Pal by Disqualification
Good lord, Judais is still feuding with Sal the Pal and Gaagz the Gymp?! I thought this was over ages over, but apparently not. I have no idea what is to be gained from this feud continuing. Personally, I'm not a fan of anyone involved, so I found this to be total throwaway. Worse yet, it had a disqualification finish, so that means there's more to come. I'd say it should be blown off at Samhain, but who knows if that's actually where they're going with this.
Kyle Davis Interviewed Chris Adonis
This was a very brief promo from Adonis, but it accomplished what it needed to. He established that he failed to win the NWA Television Championship Tournament but that he now has his sights set on becoming NWA National Champion. Silas Mason is also a heel at the moment, so I'm not sure who the crowd is supposed to cheer for in that one, but it would be a logical addition to the Samhain card.
NWA World Tag Team Champions Daisy Kill and Talos def. AJ and KC Cazana; The Immortals def. NWA World Tag Team Champions Daisy Kill and Talos
AJ's mystery partner was a fellow Cazana, though I missed what the relation is (brothers or cousins?). KC was impressive, but The Country Gentlemen were just a better duo. I guess Anthony Andrews is indeed gone from the NWA because we haven't seen him since NWA 75 I believe. The match was decent though nothing out of the ordinary. I liked how the credits were rolling when The Immortals emerged, leading to an impromptu tag title matchup. Post-credits scene! They were already scheduled to meet at Samhain, and with this ending by count-out fairly quickly, it felt pointless.
Bizarre ending aside, this was another solid show from the NWA. The "new era" has led to an improved quality for Powerrr and it's been nice to see. Okay, I could have done without Judais vs. Sal the Pal (when will that crap end?), but this was an adequate episode otherwise. I realize this isn't saying much because it's typically terrible, but the build for Samhain is the best it's been for any NWA pay-per-view in a long time.
