Kamille def. Simone Sherie
As I mentioned in my review of last week's show, Kamille is coming along nicely and has already improved in the ring from where she was earlier this year. This squash will similar to that one in that Kamille mostly dominated and that Sherie (who I wasn't at all familiar with prior to this bout) scored some offense before eating defeat. The only thing Kamille needs to work on is her mic skills, but it's probably better she stay silent more often than not and be booked to look dominant.
NWA World Tag Team Champion Eli Drake def. Watts
Like Kamille, Drake was also in action on last week's show and put his (unknown) opponent away rather quickly and decisively. That was not at all the case this week when he took on Watts, who I remember from the time he spent on WWE Tough Enough way back when in 2011. He still looks the same and still towers over his opponents. He's done some extra work for WWE since then, too. He was obviously very green back then, but he impressed me here and was on offense way more than I thought he would be. It was a competitive contest, which pleasantly surprised me. They apparently have history dating back years and I'm glad the commentators made reference to that because I wouldn't have known otherwise. Drake was barely able to score the victory, so I liked how Watts was made to look very credible in defeat.
NWA World Women's Champion Thunder Rosa def. Priscilla Kelly
Kelly is one of those people I've heard a lot about over the years but had never actually seen a ton of her work. I know she made an appearance on AEW Dynamite or Dark earlier this year, but that's about it. That said, she had a hell of a showing against Rosa, who I regard as one of the best women's wrestlers in the game today. Obviously, the outcome was never in doubt because this was taped months ago and Rosa dropped the title to Serena Deeb a while back, but that didn't hinder my enjoyment of this whatsoever. They were given a ton of time and absolutely made the most of it. It was just stellar stuff, and even without an audience present, it still had a big fight feel. How Kelly isn't signed anywhere right now is beyond me, unless there's something I'm not aware of.
The inaugural installment of NWA Shockwave last week was entertaining while it lasted, but this was so much better. The matches were given more time and the latter two in particular were excellent. Rosa vs. Kelly is especially worth checking out in my opinion. It's worth noting that there aren't any feuds on the show so far and I don't think there will be. In fact, Primetime Live isn't doing any new programming for a while due to the current lockdown in California (where the studio is located), so I believe this will be a limited series. However, I'd rather have Shockwave with matches that already aired elsewhere than no NWA at all. This was a strong show that was action-packed from start to finish.
