Natalia Markova vs. Kenzie Paige Ended in a No Contest
I've heard a lot of positive things about Markova and her potential, but personally, I have yet to see it. She hasn't been awful, but she has yet to really impress me with anything she's done up to this point. This wasn't much of a match because they basically brawled for a few minutes before the referee threw the match out. They brawled to the backstage area afterward as well. This was a fine way to further their feud.
Kerry Morton def. Jamie Stanley in an NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship Tournament Qualifying Match
We heard from both men at the podium at the start of the show, so I liked that they got the chance to build up this bout beforehand. Stanley has stood out to me with his character work in recent weeks, but I really wish he'd stop doing his shtick so much during his matches where he'll pose and say his name out loud. Other than that, this was a quality contest between two up-and-coming despite a few awkward spots. Talent clearly runs in the Morton family. Ricky Morton is a former NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion, so it made sense for Kerry to advance.
Wrecking Ball Legursky def. George South in an Empty Arena Match
This was a match that South apparently demanded after The Fixers interrupted a promo of his recently on NWA USA. I don't know if I need to see South wrestling in 2022, but for what this was, it was passable and wisely kept on the shorter side. I can't imagine the fans in the building would've been too hot for this considering it was mostly strikes, so making it an Empty Arena match was probably for the best.
South vs. Legursky wasn't much of a main event in my opinion, but the empty arena aspect made it more interesting than it would have been otherwise. The rest of the half-hour show was pretty good. The women's match wasn't great but accomplished what it needed to and Morton vs. Stanley was well wrestled. We also got Nick Aldis addressing Anthony Mayweather face-to-face at the podium, so I'm curious to see how that will factor into Aldis' ongoing rivalry with Thom Latimer and reunion with Doug Williams.
