Mercurio def. Matt Vine
Mercurio has been a fixture on NWA USA this summer and has impressed me with his work. He's also not a bad talker, either. This was more competitive than I thought it would be considering Vine isn't established, but I guess it doesn't hurt to make him look credible in defeat if the idea is to bring him back at some point. This was a well-wrestled affair and Mercurio winning was obviously the right result.
Kyle Davis Interviewed NWA World Women's Tag Team Pretty Empowered
We haven't heard a lot from Pretty Empowered since they became NWA World Women's Tag Team Champions either on Powerrr or NWA USA, so I'm glad they had the chance to speak here. They cut a fine promo, though I was left confused by the end of it. If they're tag champs, what would they want to face each other? Shouldn't they be more focused on defending against The Hex in their upcoming rematch at NWA 74?
The Hex def. Missa Kate and Kaci Lennox
As I just noted in the previous paragraph, The Hex are due to get their rematch for the tag titles at NWA 74 next weekend, so this was designed to give them a last-minute momentum boost before then. Kate and Lennox made for a quality team and it was a decent main event. Allysin Kay is very talented, but I maintain that Marti Belle should be kept limited as much as possible. I mean, that Pedigree finisher from her looked awful, unless that was due to poor selling from Lennox.
This was billed as the season finale for NWA USA with NWA 74 taking place next Saturday and Sunday night. It was around 35 minutes in length, though a good chunk of that time was devoted to replays and previews for the pay-per-view. The two matches were solid on the whole and it was nice to see the women's tag titles spotlighted for a change, so this turned out to be a perfectly passable episode despite not featuring anything you need to seek out (even though that's never really the case with this show).
