Colby Corino def. Kerry Morton in an NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship Tournament Semifinal Match
Corino traded some verbal jabs back and forth last week and Morton showed promise. He's a perfectly competent wrestler to boot, so it should come as no surprise that he's Ricky Morton's son. He and Corino had quality chemistry together and produced a nice match that went longer than I was expecting (and that's not a bad thing). Morton still has plenty to learn, so Corino cheating his way to victory made sense. He'd honestly be the perfect fit for NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion.
Natalia Markova def. Kenzie Paige
This feud has been built up nicely on NWA USA over the last month. Their original encounter was less of a match and more of an angle, but this was given decent time and was a vast improvement. I already knew Paige was talented, but I was curious what Markova could do and she was impressive. Kamille was ringside for the whole thing, but I appreciate that they kept her interference to a minimum until the end. It's possible Markova will challenge for the NWA World Women's Championship eventually.
Also on this episode, Anthony Mayweather was interrupted by BLK Jeez and Marshe Rockett at the podium with Kyle Davis, so another match between those two might be coming up. There were a few backstage interviews as well, including with Austin Aries at the beginning of the show, but Chris Adonis acknowledging he hasn't defended his NWA National Championship yet on the program was the most noteworthy. When is that happening? At any rate, a ton of time was devoted to the matches this week and both delivered I thought, making for a thumbs-up 30-plus-minute edition of NWA USA.
