Zicky Dice def. Gaagz the Gymp, Dak Draper and Judais in an NWA Television Championship Four-Way Qualifier
This was confusing. The commentators alluded to Thom Latimer already having vacated the Television title, but it wasn't actually made official until his encounter with EC3 later in the episode. Maybe I'm missing something, but it feels like they jumped the gun by airing this before that segment. From an in-ring standpoint, it was a perfectly fine four-way and the right guy won given Dice is a former Television champ.
Jax Dane def. AJ Cazana
Much like The Spectaculars, apparently The SVGS and The Country Gentlemen are no more because partners eliminated each other in the Battle Royal at NWA 75. Why break up so many teams at once? The SVGS were whatever, but I liked County Gentlemen and thought they could have done more following their run as NWA United States Tag Team Champions. Nonetheless, this was a quality hoss fight while it lasted.
Joe Alonzo and Homicide def. NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion Colby Corino and Koa Laxamana (Ricky Morton Served as Special Guest Referee)
Alonzo and Homicide had a hell of a match at NWA 75 and apparently Alonzo's win was enough to earn Homicide's respect. I wish that stuff would be addressed and explained on Powerrr because that's my own assumption for why they teamed here. Corino and Laxmana were quite the random duo, so it made sense for them to lose with Laxamana eating the loss. This was decent. We'll see if it leads to either Alonzo or Homicide getting the next shot at the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship.
NWA National Champion Thom Latimer Challenged NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion EC3
EC3 threw out the challenge to Latimer last week and Latimer accepted in this segment, leading the commentators to question if Latimer was giving up his Television title to challenge for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship. Well, the opener on this episode seemed to confirm that. Kamille showed up and did most of the talking for Latimer. Her delivery still isn't great, but her material was mostly good. I'd say I'm looking forward to EC3 vs. Latimer, but we've seen them have a handful of matches in the last year and they simply do not have strong chemistry as opponents.
Kyle Davis Interviewed Chris Adonis
This essentially existed so Adonis could announce his intentions to go back after the NWA Television Championship despite falling short against the (now-former?) champion Thom Latimer at NWA 75. With Latimer vacating the title to go after EC3, Adonis may as well have beaten him for the belt, but oh well. I appreciated that this was short, sweet and straight to the point. There was no word on who else the other TV title qualifier will consist of.
NWA World Women's Champion Kenzie Paige def. Samantha Starr
I believe the commentators mentioned that this wasn't originally intended to be a title match but turned into one. It didn't make much of a difference if Starr had no chance of winning regardless, so putting the title on the line helped make it somewhat more meaningful. It wasn't anything out of the ordinary and wasn't worthy of the main event spot, but it was nice to see them get that spotlight, if nothing else.
There's been plenty of advertisements the last two weeks for the NWA's next pay-per-view Samhain, which is coming up at the end of October. They typically do an abysmal job of building up their events, but I'm glad they've already announced EC3 vs. Latimer as the main event and set that in stone. We'll see how the rest of the card comes together, but this was the second straight solid show from the NWA's "new era" with a better ratio of matches to podium promos compared to last week.
