Well Cornette's last episode finally aired, so that's good news. His replacement is the bad news. And I couldn't be more excited for both of those things.

Fine episode, served it's purpose well, had a cool nostalgic ending, and was a good final build for the PPV... which is a week and a half away? If that was the season finale of Powerrr, does that mean there's no new episode next week? Very interesting timing if that is indeed the case
NWA have already filmed the 'Second Season' of NWA Powerrr (Or atleast a large portion of it, they spent multiple days recording episodes.) So there will be a new episode next week.

I'll put my thoughts into Spoiler Tags.



We start off the newest Episode showing Tim Storm giving us another Promo of the Year from last Week and I remember tearing up watching it then, and once again during the Highlights. That momentum comes then Storm is involved with a Segment with Aldis. I thought this Segment came perfectly to show the hate between the two, I popped hard when Aldis called Storm a Randy the Rams type of talent to piss him off. Man if I was a Wrestler when Aldis said him going the NWA TV Tourney was just for fun, I would of grabbed the Microphone if I was Storm and said this is MY LIFE...this isn't for fun. This is all I have.

Boy did Aron Stevens get a showcase here during this Episode. He used all his skills he's learned so far from Mangorvian KARATAAAAAAAAY to outclass Sal Rinauro during that Match. I don't think I've seen him doing a kick up so that was impressive. Murdoch coming out was bound to come after him sticking his nose in his business in the past, but all those skills for Aron meant nothing vs Murdoch. Pope continues the NWA talent pool as he is sitting down with Homicide and Kingston. We all know they are good enough to be Championship material why kiss Pope just ask them to have your services.

Moments after this Eli Drake who had one of the most entertaining Promos in his own right last Week where clearly he was buzzed from the stuff he was drinking last Week, but Drake is right what he's saying what is up with Drake not getting work these days. Could if be Aldis having buddies in the upper staff of NWA keeping him away that is a good question to ask. Cabana and Anderson of course show up as Cabana keeps defending Anderson and he wants them to squash their beef, hell naw. Drake end the both of them please and claim gold it needs to happen.

Belle vs Steelz. It was okay, nothing special to need to see. Steelz needed the win more than Belle, but with the loss Melina is starting to slowly lose faith in Belle if she's good enough to be apart of the group. NWA Girl Powerrr coming soon? I guess a Show dedicated to the ladies or bringing new talent I guess?

Storm vs Isaacs. Aldis no longer felt like fun was in the air for this NWA TV Tournament and he decided to bow out. Aldis towing the line of Tough Heel vs Cowardly Heel alot these days. Still it was good to see Storm pissed off from this news and he took it on Royce throughout the Match. Storm moves on and Aldis isn't on Cloud Nine anymore.

I'm happy as hell at the thought of a ROH/NWA long partnership and it all starts with Flip Gordon vs Nick Aldis at Hard Times. I always thought Flip having tons of potential so this could really mean some big things for him going forward if he beats Aldis at the PPV. Dat Dice/Starks Segment with each other was just wow. I don't know how to feel about when a talent puts down a talent to that degree. If you consider him nothing, then if you beat him in the tourney does it mean nothing? Did we need to see Dawson vs Dawson Match? In some ways it's great because it only means one gets in thank God, but damn I got bored so fast with that one.

Hooray a Cabana vs Anderson feud as if anyone wants that. I do think Anderson being a psycho could be some good things for him, but this let's stick together partner angle has been done to death. Vox vs Melina was just fine for the time they gave to us, but it's like it blew me away. Vox showed plenty of fire, but Melina the veteran stopped all of that when she needed to. Vox I feel would of been great in a NXT where she can develop her personality, because you feel she wants it, but she isn't being given alot of opportunities to really create her persona as a younger talent. Melina I'm pretty sure turned the Earth on it's Axis with that Split or was it something down below in my Pants hmm. Melina vs Kay next week that should be very interesting how that goes.

Pope had me going with him joining with Outlaw Inc. If it ain't making money he ain't putting in the time he sounds like a Pimp. Outlaw Inc loses to Stevens and Question Mark and Pope exits Stage Left as if he's already looking for new talents the way he looking at that them. I see that confusion going on and then Strictly Business shows up and Steiner once again gives us great entertainment on the Microphone. Aldis posing and eating it up would be me for sure, how can not get into his Promos. The Main Event was fun, both groups got their stuff in and Morton now has a shot at the top of the Mountain vs Aldis. I never thought in 2020 I would see the day where someone like Morton at his age would be in the running for a World Title, but a old Dog might be teaching a younger Dog new tricks who knows.

After binging the NWA episodes I missed, I have to say I think Rosa will eventually beat Allysin for the Women's belt...and that isn't cool

Man this what a great from NWA Powerrr this Week. Alot of Segment driven stuff, but it came off fucking great with every Segment to go along with only two Matches. Nick Aldis of course is going to come out first to boast about his win over Flip Gordon on Friday, but once he owns his Interviews and the chat you see later with Marty was some wonderful stuff. What it the plan for Royce, seems to me he's easily distracted and he nearly loss to Andre Guhn, as he was more focused on what Sal Rinauro was saying about him then winning.

Thunder Rosa showing up with the NWA Women's Title was such a great moment. She is the first of Hispanic descent to hold the Championship and she'll carry it with pride no doubt. You were hoping for Rosa to have her moment in the Sun, and Melina and Belle sho up to take away that shine. Melina putting herself over as the person who got Rosa the Title shot in the first place, clearly it shows Rosa is going to be turning face really soon as Melina can't deal with people talking about Rosa, rather than her. Next week Rosa vs Kay 2 for the NWA Women's Title should be one hell of a treat, and I can't wait to see what the ladies change up in this rematch next Week.

Another new Champion comes out after some Highlights, this time it's Ricky Starks. Starks was the perfect guy to become NWA TV Champion and he proves it again not only with his talking jack, but him mopping the floor with Dice. I still think Dice would be perfect a Manager for a talent, because he can surely stir up a crowd, but I'm not sure if has a future in the NWA other than a guy to take ass whoopings all day. I loved how Dice put over his Gear like it's worth Thousands of Bucks, rather something I could get at the Dollar Tree near me, but don't let Dice hear you say that. Drake and Storm Segment with Aron/Question Mark had me in stitches. Storm was drunk and living it up, and then you get Aron and Question Mark wanting a shot at the Tag Titles. For a moment there I thought Aron was a Fourth Degree Blackbelt with that Belt, but he better be thinking about Murdoch, rather than the Tag Titles.

The Sitdown with Marty and Aldis was really entertaining. Aldis feels like Marty has his own home in ROH, and why should he want to have what he does, when he's a major player in ROH. Marty feels like he's always been in second place in his Career, and he wants to be number 1. Marty stipulation that if he's so confident then if you lose you pay back all the fans in attendance, and you know Marty is going to accept the terms. Which to me puts this Match into a spot where you either have to have Marty win the NWA Title, or he wins by DQ. Crockett Cup is where it'll take place, my bet on that is that Marty wins the big one and it sets up more stuff with ROH and Villain Enterprises.
