Colby Corino def. CW Anderson in an NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship Tournament Qualifying Match
Anderson appeared in the Gauntlet match on the Hard Times 2 pre-show last month and has made a handful of appearances on Powerrr over the last two years. He's probably best known for the time he spent in ECW years ago, and while he's apparently over the age of 50, he still had a damn good showing here. Seriously, I was not expecting this to be as good as it was. Corino has been excellent in the heel role and he shined as well. He was obviously the right choice to quality, but props to Anderson for his performance and for putting over Corino as well as he did.
Luke Hawx def. PJ Hawx in an NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship Tournament Qualifying Match
I'm sure this father and son duo have faced off one-on-one elsewhere before, but it was my first time seeing it. It easily could have gone either way, but it told the simple story of them knowing each other so well and that's why it was so competitive. It was a quality main event that would have benefited from a few more minutes. Luke is headed to the next round of the tournament and PJ looked credible in defeat.
In between the matches, we also heard from George South, Tim Storm, Nick Aldis and Chris Adonis. None of the promos were anything overly noteworthy other than Storm announcing that he had suspended The Fixers. This was the debut episode of NWA USA and we were told that the Junior Heavyweight title tourney is going to be a big part of it for now as well as the NWA National Championship. This edition felt like a shorter version of Powerrr, but it was perfectly passable with two well-wrestled matches. The fact it airs on Saturday afternoons for free on YouTube is a nice touch. It certainly wasn't must-see, but they utilized the time well. Hopefully they'll switch things up from Powerrr eventually so it feels like a different show entirely.
