NWA USA Review - May 28, 2022
Jay Bradley def. Brady Pierce
Pierce looked like a knock-off Tyler Breeze back when he was going as Mike Dalton in his early WWE NXT days. I remember him from the appearances he made on AEW Dark as an enhancement talent a year or two ago. However, this was all about Bradley, who flew solo without Wrecking Ball Legursky this week. He got good heat from the crowd and the match was solid, so this worked well as the opener.
Mims def. AJ Cazana
I'm all for Mims finally building momentum after doing nothing for the last year or so. He's got potential and clearly has a connection with the crowd. Cazana has appeared in the NWA before and did just fine here, but this essentially served as a showcase for Mims ahead of his upcoming opportunity at Tyrus' NWA Television Championship at Alwayz Ready, which has since been made official. We only hope Mims will be the one to end Tyrus' reign of terror.
The Miserably Faithful (Judais and Sal the Pal) def. NWA National Champion Jax Dane and Magic Jake Dumas
What a random main event. Apparently Dane will be defending his NWA National Championship against Chris Adonis at Alwayz Ready, but Adonis wasn't involved at all in this match. Rather, he teamed with Dumas for some strange reason, and despite Dumas racking up wins in recent months, he was treated like just another guy here and took the loss for his team. Meanwhile, Miserably Faithful are a pretty lame group. Judais bores me to tears, but at least Sal the Pal plays his role well. This was a waste of time.
Tyrus was on commentary for the entire episode, and although he wasn't great, I'll take him over Austin Idol any day. This was filmed at the PowerrrTrip 2 event, so while it was nice to get out of the usual NWA setting, this was one of the weaker editions of NWA USA yet. None of the matches had storyline significance and none of them are worth going out of your way to see, making the longer runtime a bit more questionable.
