Captain YUMA def. Fable Jake
YUMA has appeared on a few NWA shows in the past, whereas I had no knowledge of Jake prior to this match. They worked a pretty basic bout, but the crowd seemed to be into it and behind YUMA as he battled back from underneath. Again, there was nothing out of the ordinary about this, but it was enjoyable while it lasted. I doubt YUMA gains anything from this win considering he's almost never on Powerrr.
Jaden Roller def. Rush Freeman
I'm slightly familiar with Freeman, but Roller has been on NWA programming quite a bit over the last month or two. His match against Tim Storm specifically stood out and based on the commentary for the match, it sounds like Roller still has an issue with Storm. I don't know if a rematch is on the horizon or not, but it made sense for Roller to win either way. This was a well-wrestled affair.
Jay Bradley def. Diante
I didn't catch a last name for Diante. Bradley was just advertised as being in action, so I assumed it didn't really matter. Sure enough, this was a straightforward squash with Bradley completely decimating Diante. As I've mentioned before, I'm a fan of The Fixers having been following the career of Wrecking Ball Legursky on the northeast independent scene for a few years now. Hopefully they can continue to be regularly featured going forward.
It made sense to do the latest PowerrrSurge during a holiday week and keep the show short with a few matches sprinkled in. Granted, none of the matches were anything notable, but it was better than nothing. The rest of the episode consisted of a holiday party hosted by Joe Galli on the set of Powerrr (though Galli claimed it was his house), Galli getting drunk, and Austin Idol and Velvet Sky making amends, or at least for one night. You miss absolutely nothing if you don't watch and I'm sure none of this will matter in the long run, but the half hour flew by and was perfectly passable for a Christmas show.
