Zicky Dice def. Ricky Starks to Win the NWA Television Championship
Dice and Starks have had a fun feud over the past month and this was an enjoyable encounter from them. I was glad they nearly went the full six minutes and five seconds and I like their in-ring chemistry. However, the title change kind of came out of nowhere. I'm sure Dice will be a fine champion as he's a terrific talker, but Starks just won the title a little over a month ago and him dropping it at this point feels a bit premature.
NWA National Champion Aron Stevens and The Question Mark Challenged The Rock 'N' Roll Express
Stevens' promos with his current character as "The Shooter" never cease to be a blast. He said that he and Question Mark are looking to capture all the gold in the NWA and have set their sights on the NWA World Tag Team Championship. In order to earn an opportunity, Stevens plans on beating The Rock 'N' Roll Express next week. This was a nice little exchange that served as setup for their upcoming clash.
CW Anderson and Caleb Konley def. The Dawsons in a Last Chance Match
We haven't seen much of Anderson in the NWA and I can't recall many matches Konley has won on this show. Thus, I was surprised they won here and apparently earned full-time contracts, especially since The Dawsons have been regulars on Powerrr since the start. The match was decent for what it was and I'm interested in whether this means we've seen the last of The Dawsons in the NWA.
Royce Isaacs Interrupted May Valentine and Sal Rinauro
This stuff with Valentine, Rinauro and Isaacs is so silly and basic that it probably shouldn't be working as well as it has, at least with the audience. Personally, I couldn't care less about this storyline and have no desire to see Isaacs face Rinauro, but I appreciate the effort. It didn't help that Valentine's acting here as she pleaded Isaacs to not injure Rinauro's other arm wasn't the greatest.
NWA World Tag Team Champions James Storm and Eli Drake def. The Bouncers
The Bouncers are fresh off their heel turn on last week's show, and as a result of their alliance with The Pope, they found their way into a tag team title opportunity on this show. Eddie Kingston accompanied Storm and Drake to ringside to ensure Pope didn't interfere. We don't see many competitive matches on Powerrr, but this was pretty good while it lasted and Storm and Drake retained as they should have.
In addition to everything discussed above, we also heard from Nick Aldis and Marty Scurll heading into their NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship clash at the Crockett Cup next month. That was the best thing on the entire show, but that isn't to say it was a below-average edition of Powerrr. The main event was entertaining and the wrestling on the whole was passable, but this episode lacked that strong mic work Powerrr is known for.
