Caprice Coleman def. Alex Taylor
It's cool to see Coleman make his NWA debut after being a regular in Ring of Honor for so many years. He was actually just on commentary for Friday's ROH Supercard of Honor pay-per-view alongside Ian Riccaboni, so I'm curious if this was just a one-off for him in the NWA or if he'll be sticking around. Either way, he looked excellent in this match, which essentially served as a showcase for him. I wasn't a big fan of him as a wrestler years ago, but I'm looking forward to him having more matches because he was very impressive here.
Natalia Markova def. Riley
Markova is continuing to make strides in the ring. If she can cut more promos on the show and do well at that, she'll be a star in time. She's definitely won me over in the last month. Riley scored some offense, but this was mostly about Markova and giving her another win. Could she be considered the favorite to eventually dethrone Kamille as NWA World Women's Champion? The only issue is that they're both heels currently. On a side note, Riley previously played one of the "Swinger girls" on IMPACT last year. I knew she looked familiar.
Mims vs. AJ Cazana Ended in a Time-Limit Draw
I believe Cazana has been in action for the NWA a time or two before, but beyond the quick backstage interview he had at the start of the show, I know nothing about him. Thus, him having a competitive match and looking more dominant than Mims in the end was a weird call to me. I assume they'll drag this out, but another non-finish for the second straight week was stupid. Don't get me wrong, this was well wrestled and all, but I'd like to see Mims start building momentum one of these days instead of being made to look weak against almost all of his opponents.
Coleman's NWA debut was easily the highlight of this episode. He and Taylor had an entertaining affair to start the show. Markova's match was what it needed to be, but I wasn't high on the main event. Again, it was average from an in-ring standpoint, but nothing stood out as special about it and the focus being on Cazana was odd. This was an adequate show, but nothing was egregiously terrible.
