NWA USA Review - November 19, 2022
NWA United States Tag Team Champions The Fixers def. The Country Gentlemen
The Fixers cut a promo with Kyle Davis in an empty arena before this bout, so it must have been taped at another time. The Fixers are better characters than they are wrestlers, but this was a solid big-man match considering the size of everyone involved. Even with nothing overly impressive about it, this was well worked and the right team won. The Fixers being the featured tag champs on NWA USA makes total sense.
Missa Kate def. Madi
This stemmed from Madi ditching Kate in their NWA World Women's Tag Team Championship match against Pretty Empowered at Hard Times 3. Kate looked like a moron for offering Madi a handshake to start the match even though Madi was the one who betrayed her at the pay-per-view. She beat Madi and turned her back on Madi again afterward. Otherwise, this was a perfectly fine match. It would be foolish for them to go back to being partners only for Madi to betray her again.
Jace Valor def. Homicide by Disqualification
Homicide was already losing his mind in his final few months as NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion, so now that he's lost the title to Kerry Morton, he's gone completely off the deep end. Aside from a brief fluffy of offense from Valor, this was all Homicide, who spent the entire time kicking Valor's ass and beating him up around ringside, which ultimately resulted in him getting disqualified. I like the way they executed the post-match angle with him going berserk and the camera cutting away. It successfully sent the message that he isn't someone to be messed with.
There were more fans in attendance for this episode than usual, likely due to how this was taped the same weekend as Hard Times 3. It also ended up being a bit more eventful as well, which added to my enjoyment of it. Granted, none of the matches were great, but stories were furthered, a championship was defended and it was only around 30 minutes long, so I can't complain. NWA USA should follow this formula more often.
