Darius Lockheart def. Sal Rinauro in an NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship Tournament Qualifying Match
We haven't seen Lockheart since Hard Times 2 when he announced he'd be partaking in the Junior Heavyweight title tourney but couldn't at that time due to dealing with an injury. He's an impressive dude and I'm glad he advanced. Rinauro is a good hand and held his own in this outing as well. This didn't go all that long, but they maximized their minutes. Rinauro's mental breakdown continues.
Hawx Aerie and George South Brawled with Colby Corino and The Fixers
We've gotten a decent amount of talking segments on NWA USA so far both in the backstage setting and at the podium, but nothing like this and I liked the approach they took with it. The segment started out with Corino confronting the commentators and South attacking him there. That brought out Hawx Aerie and The Fixers to brawl and further that feud. I suspect we'll see a six-man tag team match with these guys soon enough.
British Invasion def. Strictly Business (Thom Latimer and NWA National Champion Chris Adonis)
It may have already happened (and I assume it will air on NWA programming at some point), but Nick Aldis and Latimer have another match coming up with a big stipulation, so this served as a nice preview of that. British Invasion are just a terrific team and Strictly Business work well as partners, so this was one of the better bouts I've seen on NWA show recently. This had some entertaining action and British Invasion winning gets them another step closer to the NWA World Tag Team Championship.
This might have been the strongest edition of NWA USA yet. We got another installment in the Junior Heavyweight title tourney and it was a quality contest, the segment in the middle served a purpose, and the main event was enjoyable. There was a backstage promo from Austin Aries as well, but he didn't say much of note, so I can't say that was one of the highlights. They've found a formula that works for this show and the half hour always breezes by.
