Thrillbilly Silas def. Jake Taylor in a No Disqualification Match
It was interesting seeing Silas play the heel role after being a fan favorite in the NWA throughout the year, but I realize that's because they wanted the Australian competitors to be the babyfaces fighting against the evil Americans. I'm not sure if the stipulation was necessary since they didn't do a ton with it, but this was a well-worked match, nonetheless. Taylor has been impressive on these past two shows and Silas continues to be a treat to watch.
NWA Women's Television Champion Kenzie Paige def. Aysha and Natalia Markova in a Three-Way Match (Non-Title)
This stemmed from Paige crashing last week's match between Aysha and Markova. You'd think the Television title would've been on the line to give this some stakes and because, well, why not, but no such luck. I'm not sure why since Paige ended up winning, anyway. What we got here was decent enough, but it didn't last long enough to get out of first gear. A Paige vs. Markova program might still be possible since Markova wasn't pinned.
Emman Azman def. Alex Taylor by Disqualification
We found out absolutely nothing about Azman, so even had this match gone longer than it did, it would have been difficult for anyone else but those in attendance to care about him. That isn't to say Taylor is a world champion-caliber competitor, but at least he's established with the NWA audience. This was a nice little match up until Taylor's injury, which led to the abrupt non-finish with Kerry Morton rushing the ring and attacking Azman. Props to them for improvising on the fly.
NWA World Tag Team Champions La Rebelion def. The Natural Classics
Natural Classics consisted of two dudes named Stevie Filip and Tome Filip. I wasn't at all familiar with them coming into this show, but they had a standout showing in what was easily the best bout of the night. I'm not surprised since that tends to be the case with most Rebelion matches on NWA shows. It was well paced and the action was enjoyable despite the titles never feeling like they were truly in jeopardy.
NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion Kerry Morton def. Emman Azman
We found out beforehand from Morton that Billy Corgan made this official after Alex Taylor vs. Azman was cut short earlier. Morton wanted revenge on Azman for what happened during the latter's match with Taylor earlier in the show, but I don't know why Morton would care so much considering him and Taylor were never previously established as friends. It was the NWA's way of killing the time they had to fill as a result of Taylor's injury, so I can't fault them for that.
This two-part Australia event as part of the NWA's The World Is A Vampire tour was way better than the Mexico shows. While not storyline significant at all, these matches were significantly stronger and not as much of a mess. Although Part 2 featured a lot of the same talent from Part 1, the wrestling was an improvement over what you'd get on an average edition of Powerrr, and the different atmosphere was cool as well. This was good stuff on the whole.
