Caprice Coleman def. Joe Alonzo
Coleman continues to impress me with what he can do in the ring at his age in addition to being great on commentary. He had a match on this show before doing commentary for Ring of Honor later in the night, so it's cool to see him making the rounds. Alonzo is talented as well from what I've seen of him, but Coleman had to win this one. I enjoyed the energy this had to kick off the show.
Mercurio def. Jamie Stanley
Stanley's character work is entertaining and he's a competent competitor in the ring, so I'm surprised he hasn't won more matches. Granted, a decent chunk of time for NWA USA is dedicated to his talk show each week (that's not quite as entertaining), but he doesn't wrestle as often as you'd think. Nonetheless, he and Mercurio had a decent match here. It was a fairly average outing, but I was surprised Mercurio won since we haven't seen much of him so far.
Kerry Morton def. Colby Corino
I feel like Corino has been feuding with the Mortons forever. Don't get me wrong, the matches have been well wrestled, but I really hope this is the culmination of it so everyone can move on. Morton is a super skilled up-and-comer and I really hope he's the one to beat Homicide for the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship at NWA 74. As for Corino, hopefully this is the last loss he takes for a while. This was easily a thumbs-up main event.
They focused a little more on the in-ring action this week as opposed to the backstage segments, promos and silly skits, so for that reason alone, I thought this edition of NWA USA was an improvement over other episodes recently. The opening and closing matches were fun and the middle match wasn't bad by any means. NWA USA will never be a show you need to drop everything and watch, but the 30 minutes weren't a chore to sit through as much as they tend to be sometimes.
