The Southern 6 def. Caveman Ugg and Jake Taylor
The Southern 6 consisted of Thrillbilly Silas and Alex Taylor (no relation to his opponent Jake Taylor). That's the first I've heard of a team name for them because I don't ever remember them teaming, so I assume this was a one-off. I always enjoy Silas' work and Taylor is skilled as well, so they made for a decent team. I can't say their opponents stood out at all, but this was a perfectly passable tag team match.
Natalia Markova def. Aysha by Disqualification
I liked that we got to hear from Aysha beforehand, allowing her to talk a little about who she is. I assume there were a few fans in attendance aware of who she is from the Australian wrestling scene, but as someone unfamiliar with her prior to this match, I appreciated the introduction. This wasn't the smoothest of matches, but both women gave it a good effort and they had a nice match. Kenzie Page attacking Markova was random, unless I missed something. I'm all for Markova going after (and potentially winning) the NWA Women's Television Championship, though.
Slex def. Mercurio
Slex was the one Australian wrestler on this show I was familiar with because of the short stint he had in Ring of Honor pre-COVID. He was an impressive prospect at the time and I was bummed he was never brought back, or at least not to my knowledge. He had a solid showing here and I hope it's not the last we've seen of him in the NWA. Mercurio staying serious was welcomed and they had a quality contest.
NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion Kerry Morton def. Adam Brooks
There was no reason to think Morton would drop the title to someone the NWA audience has never seen before, but Brooks had a commendable performance and looked credible in defeat. Morton got some mic time beforehand, and although I think he'll do well in the heel role ultimately, he's definitely going to need more reps on the mic because that promo was not great. This was entertaining otherwise and the best bout of the show.
I wasn't a big fan of The World Is A Vampire shows in Mexico, but this was a significant improvement. Maybe I'm speaking too soon and Part 2 will be dumpster fire, but I honestly thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Fresh faces from the Australian wrestling scene were featured and each match was better than the last. These shows don't really matter from a storyline standpoint at the end of the day, but this was an easy watch.
