By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

NWA Powerrr (Episode 4)
Taped September 30 and October 1, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia at GPB Studios
Aired October 29, 2019 on the NWA Youtube and NWA Facebook Page

A recap aired that covered last week’s storyline involving Tim Storm and Eli Drake, and their match against The Dawsons… The “Into The Fire” opening theme played to the show’s opening video…

The broadcast team of Joe Galli and Jim Cornette checked in from their desk and hyped some matches for the show. NWA National Champion James Storm approached the desk. He said he’s tired of having to prove himself to the NWA when his resume speaks for itself. Storm said Nick Aldis is ducking him and he griped about Colt Cabana wanting another title shot even though he beat Cabana for the title.

Colt Cabana came out and said that the belt rightfully belongs to him. He said he’s 100 percent healthy now. Eli Drake came out and told Storm that he’s been in Aldis’s face for so long and he still hasn’t gotten a title shot. Aldis walked onto the set. Drake said he thinks it’s about time that Storm gets the title shot he’s been asking for. Aldis said Storm’s words are alcohol fueled. Aldis said Drake doesn’t drink, smoke, or use drugs, but his vice is that he wants to be just like him.

Aldis told Storm to find a couple partners and called for a match. He said that if he and Cabana win the match then Cabana gets an NWA National Title. Storm said that’s fine as long as he gets his shot at the NWA World Championship. Aldis said that’s fine, but he called for Storm to vacate the NWA National Title if that happens so that he has something to lose. Storm told Aldis that he would show him a real champion…

A video package recalled the Aldis, Kamille, and Joe Galli drama… A graphic touted the Homicide and Eddie Kingston vs. The Dawsons match… An ad hyped the NWA Powerrr tapings and the December 14 pay-per-view event…

Dave Marquez interviewed Trevor Murdoch on the interview set. Murdoch said he wants a contract. He also said he called the NWA and said Jocephus shouldn’t be suspended for throwing powder in the face of Colt Cabana, he should face him instead. Murdoch said he will do whatever he has to do to get his contract.

Jocephus walked onto the set and said his Spiritual Adviser had sanctioned all kinds of violence against Murdoch. Trevor told Jocephus to get his ass in the ring. Murdoch approached the ring and then Jocephus snuck up behind him and ran him into the ring post…

1. Trevor Murdoch vs. Jocephus. Jocephus tried to use powder again, but Murdoch kicked it into his face. Murdoch followed up with a bulldog and got the pin…

Trevor Murdoch defeated Jocephus.

Powell’s POV: The opening segment was solid, though I’m not really sure if they are having a tag match or a six-man tag match. The match was brief and that’s all it needed to be.

The Thunder Rosa video aired to promote that she’s coming soon to the NWA…

Galli interviewed Aron Stevens and asked when he will be getting into the ring. Stevens told the crowd that he was wearing a shirt, not a blouse. Ricky Starks came out. Stevens assumed that Starks wanted to be his stunt double. Starks held out his hand for Stevens to kiss. When Stevens didn’t oblige, Starks kissed his own hand and then hit Stevens, who held the side of his face…

A video package recapped the Homicide and Kingston vs. The Dawsons feud… An Austin Idol ad aired for “Kayfabe Cocktail.” He said it’s an aphrodisiac…

“The Rock & Roll Express” Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson were touted as coming soon to the NWA…

2. Dave Dawson and Zane Dawson vs. Eddie Kingston and Homicide in a No DQ match. The Dawsons came out first and were quickly attacked from behind by Kingston and Homicide. The teams fought in the ring and around the studio. Royce Isaacs and Thom Latimer came out and watched the match from the interview set. The Dawsons went on the offensive and worked over Homicide with a chair while Kingston was down at ringside. The Dawsons piled chairs on top of Homicide. One of the Dawsons went up top for a move, but Latimer hit Zane Dawson with a tag title belt, then Isaacs put Dave Dawson on top of Kingston for the win…

The Dawsons defeated Eddie Kingston and Homicide in a No DQ match.

Powell’s POV: I guess the idea was to have Isaacs and Latimer cause the finish, yet also show that they are not aligned with either team. Will this lead to a three-way tag title match? Will there be three-ways in the NWA?

Graphics listed the upcoming matches… A video hyped upcoming events… A “Who Is The Mark?” video aired…

Footage aired from “earlier today” of Marti Belle being interviewed. She spoke about her desire to prove herself as worthy of getting another title shot and being the NWA Women’s Championship… A video recapped Allysin Kay telling Vox that she’s happy she’s on the roster, but she’s not worthy of her championship…

3. Marti Belle vs. Ashley Vox. Allysin Kay walked onto the interview set and told Belle that she loves her, but she doesn’t think she’s ready. She also pointed out that she already beat Vox once. Kay watched from ringside and acted impressed when Vox tackled Belle and then rolled her into a pin for the win.

Ashley Vox defeated Marti Belle.

After the match, Thunder Rosa entered the ring after Kay and Vox had left. Rosa offered a handshake to Belle, who quickly left the ring…

Powell’s POV: I was surprised to see Vox win given that Kay already beat her. The broadcast team did a good job of telling the story that Kay seemed to be laying it on thick with her comments.

The “Tony Falk’s Waffles and Tire Irons” commercial aired. The add noted that if you buy three gluten-free waffles then you’ll get four tire irons for free…

The broadcast team hyped the six-man tag main event and set up the next match…

4. Aron Stevens vs. Ricky Starks. Stevens took Starks down. Starks laid on the mat and motioned for Stevens to bring it, then moved out of the way when Stevens went after him. Stevens came back and bowed before dropping an elbow on Stevens. “You’re welcome,” Stevens said to the fans. Later, Stevens screamed and ducked when Starks teased slapping him. Starks rolled up Stevens and pinned him.

Ricky Starks defeated Aron Stevens.

After the match, Stevens said “no” and the crowd responded with “yes” each time he said it… A graphic hyped the six-man tag main event… An ad aired for upcoming events…

Powell’s POV: Stevens is really fun in this setting. It’s nice to see him having fun again and it’s especially nice that my final memories of his in-ring career won’t be that disappointing run he had with TNA/Impact Wrestling.

5. Nick Aldis, Colt Cabana, and Ken Anderson vs. James Storm, Royce Isaacs, and Thom Latimer. The broadcast team reminded viewers that if Team Storm won then Storm would get an NWA Title match, whereas Cabana would get an NWA National Title shot with a Team Aldis win.

Cabana was isolated by the heel trio for a stretch. Anderson took a hot tag and got a near fall on Latimer. Anderson hit a Mic Check on Latimer, but everyone other than Cabana ended up in the ring. Cabana tagged in while the broadcast team wondered who the legal man was for Team Storm. Storm accidentally hit his Last Call superkick on Issacs. Anderson took Storm to ringside. Moments later, Cabana pinned Latimer to win the match and to earn an NWA National Title shot.

Nick Aldis, Colt Cabana, and Ken Anderson beat James Storm, Royce Isaacs, and Thom Latimer.

The closing credits aired…Another ad aired for the December 16 television taping in Atlanta (the pay-per-view and first day of tapings sold out)…

Powell’s POV: A solid six-man tag match with Cabana going over to set him up with a rematch for the title that Storm beat him to win while Cabana was injured. Overall, this was my least favorite of the four episodes. I enjoyed the fast pace of the first few episodes, but this week it felt like it the pacing made it tough for certain things to register before they rushed on to the next segment. It’s still a fun throwback show and I continue to recommend the series to anyone who hasn’t given it a chance yet.
