Homicide def. Alex Taylor
I feel like it isn't often we see Taylor compete, but he seems to be a competent wrestler based on what I saw here. You basically know what to expect from Homicide at this point and that's not at all a bad thing. There wasn't anything too extraordinary about this outing, but it was well wrestled and they filled the time well. Could this be part of a bigger feud between La Rebelion and The Ill Begotten? My guess is no, but it is possible Ill Begotten win the Crockett Cup and get an NWA World Tag Team Championship opportunity out of it.
Doug Williams def. Jay Bradley
Williams is a treat to watch wrestle whenever he's in action regardless of who he's up against. As for Bradley, I've never been overly impressed with his in-ring work on his own, but he's decent enough that I assumed this would be a quality contest and it was. There was an interesting clash of styles and they worked well together. I'm curious if this will eventually lead to a British Invasion vs. Fixers match, especially since Williams won with a roll-up here.
At the podium, we heard from Natalia Markova before she was confronted by May Valentine (thus furthering that feud) as well as Nick Aldis and Austin Idol. I'm not sure what that was about, but less of Idol, the better. He's on NWA programming far more often than he should be. The two featured matches on the show this week were solid and having some established talent involved definitely helped. The 26 minutes flew by as always.
