The Spectaculars (Rush Freeman and Brady Pierce) def. Rolando Freeman and Eric Jackson to Qualify for the 2023 Crockett Cup
I don't think Rolando is out of The Spectaculars since this was a Crockett Cup qualifier and he wanted to qualify with a different partner. Unfortunately, I can't remember a single win Jackson has had on this show, so it was pretty obvious who was winning here. Jackson's been in a handful of matches over the last year and yet we know nothing about him. The match was fine, but Homicide serving as the special guest referee was completely random. It was strange seeing cost Rolando the win only for The Spectaculars to quickly capitalize despite being buddies with Rolando. I assume this was designed to set up Homicide vs. Rolando because if not, I have no idea what Homicide had to do with this.
Angelina Love def. Kylie Page
The commentators acknowledged the similarities between the two. I mean, Pretty Empowered are basically the modern-day version of The Beautiful People. I wasn't exactly sure how well this would go considering Love's matches aren't typically the best, but this ended up being perfectly passable. Giving Page more reps is a positive as well as putting her against experienced opponents. I don't know who was supposed to be the babyface here, but oh well.
Judais and Max The Impaler def. The Miserably Faithful to Qualify for the 2023 Crockett Cup
I thought Judais and Max would hold onto the Miserably Faithful name, but apparently it's sticking with Gaagz The Gymp and Sal The Pal even though they've broken off on their own. It doesn't matter to me either way because I couldn't care less about any of them aside from Max, who has the highest ceiling by far. That's why I was pleased to see them scoring the winning fall. The match itself was whatever, but hopefully this puts an end to this awful program once and for all.
As has been the case in the last few weeks, the show benefited from featuring Crockett Cup qualifiers as that made two of the matches more meaningful than they would have been otherwise. Granted, the match quality wasn't stellar by any means, but at least those two matches served a purpose. Love vs. Page was fairly pointless, but it thankfully wasn't as bad as it could have been. All in all, this was a serviceable edition of NWA USA.
