NWA USA Review - March 4, 2023
Chris Adonis and Rhett Titus def. The Fixers
Adonis and Titus were Bobby Fulton's mystery team. The stipulation stated that The Fixers would have to give Fulton back the flag title belts they stole. Well, they lost, and still didn't give the belts back. It was one of those stipulations that didn't end up meaning anything, but it did make the match more meaningful. It was well worked and I actually like the duo of Adonis and Titus. There was no way Adonis was losing seeing as how he's next in line to challenge Tyrus for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship.
Max The Impaler def. Natalia Markova by Disqualification
This was a renewal of the rivalry, though their Casket match wasn't that long ago and I wouldn't have gone back to this so soon. Plus, it looks like a rematch might be coming based on the non-finish. Max needs to be heated back up with a string of wins, not losing by disqualification. That said, I'm fine with Markova not being beaten clean because she has potential, too. This was decent as both women are talented and it helped that they have history.
The SVGs def. The ILL Begotten (Alex Taylor and Jeremiah Plunkett) in an NWA United States Tag Team Championship No. 1 Contender's Match
Apparently SVGs is short for Savages, at least according to their manager Chris Silvio. It's the team of Jax Dane and Blake Troop, who lost to Dak Draper and Mims on the Nuff Said pre-show. They're a solid team and them against The Country Gentlemen should be a fun hoss fight. This was a good main event with the right duo going over as ILL Begotten are the ultimate enhancement team and I wouldn't have had much interest in them challenging for the tag titles.
This was a very straightforward show and I mean that in the best way possible. There wasn't much filler and we got three well-wrestled matches. That's typically not the norm for NWA USA, so I liked that it was an easy watch at just over 30 minutes. The NWA still needs to tone down the non-finishes, but that was my sole criticism for this episode. As a supplemental show for the NWA, this is formula they should be following consistently to make it worthwhile for fans.
