I am behind on a few things. Here are results of the NWA Powerrr episode that debuted on 1/14/20. Tonight (1/21) will be a special 90 minute go-home episode for the sold out “Hard Times” pay-per-view which takes place on 1/24 live on FITE https://www.fite.tv/watch/nwa-it-returns/2p57c/ They’re also calling it the Season 2 finale as more TV will be taped in Atlanta on 1/25 and 1/26.
David Marquez did an interview with NWA World Tag Team Champions The Rock and Roll Express. Ricky Morton did a tremendous babyface promo and said they always put the fans first no matter what. He said they paved the way for the young guys in the back. He said his team will win the 6-man main event tonight against Royce Issacs, Scott Steiner, and Thom Latimer that will get him a title shot at Nick Aldis.
Marquez wanted to know who their team will be. Robert Gibson said they don’t want to reveal it to keep the other side guessing until the time comes.
Joe Galli ran down the TV Title Tournament brackets which will take place on the ppv. Tim Storm vs. the winner of the Dawson vs. Dawson match on this episode, Ricky Starks vs. an open spot, Zicky Dice vs. an open spot, The Question Mark vs. the winner of Thom Latimer vs. Trevor Murdoch.
Marquez interview Zicky Dice and Ricky Starks at the podium together. They argued over who would win the TV Title.
Zane Dawson vs. Dave Dawson in a TV Title Tournament Qualifier
Zane pinned his brother after a knockout punch with the cast on his right hand as the referee was trying to separate them in the corner. He yelled out in pain and favored his arm after the match was over. Joe Galli and Stu Bennett wondered if he will be medically cleared for the ppv.
They showed separate backstage interviews with Colt Cabana and Ken Anderson about Anderson acting like a bitter loose cannon. Anderson seemed to be in denial about the whole thing.
Ashley Vox vs. Melina
Melina got the pin after the Primal Scream driving leg drop.
Galli interviewed Melina at ringside after the match. She said she and Thunder Rosa already beat everyone else so she wants a title shot at Allysin Kay. She said Kay needs to come out so she can say it to her face. Kay came out and said they could have a match right now. Melina told her it would be next week and walked away.
They showed the footage of Nick Aldis attacking Marty Scrull at the ROH show in Atlanta on 1/11. Aldis said Atlanta is his town, not Scrull’s. That followed up with Aldis, Kamille, and Thom Latimer taking over the ROH commentary broadcast on 1/12 in Concord, North Carolina until Flip Gordon and others ejected them from the building.
Aldis cut a promo outside the Concord venue and challenged Gordon to a match at Hard Times.
Marquez interviewed The Pope, Homicide, and Eddie Kingston. Pope said that he is not a manager, just a guy who advises and helps get opportunities. Homicide said his shoulder was fine but it was clearly taped up. Kingston said they’re ready to go. Pope said they’re not a Tag Team made up out of convince, they’re like blood brothers.
Homicide and Eddie Kingston (with The Pope) vs. Aron Stevens and The Question Mark (with a masked flag bearer)
Stevens pinned Homicide. Homicide was trying to give Stevens his finishing move but his shoulder “gave out” and Question Mark caught him with The Mongrovian Spike to allow Stevens to make the cover.
The Pope walked away and to the back looking disappointed in Homicide and Kingston for the loss.
A fake hotline commercial aired with Austin Idol calling himself a wrestling psychologist to teach people to get heat.
Aldis, Kamille, Latimer, Issacs, and Scott Steiner came out for an interview with Marquez before the main event. Aldis said when he came to America people warned him about snakes and backstabbing in the business but Steiner welcomed him. Steiner said he recognized that he’d be a future champion. Steiner had a belt with him that he said was an original NWA Tag Team Title before Ted Turner turned things into a WCW.
Scott Steiner, Royce Issacs, and Thom Latimer (with Nick Aldis and Kamille) vs. Robert Gibson, Eli Drake and Tim Storm
Gibson got the pin on Issacs as everyone else was fighting on the outside. As per the stipulation, Morton gets a title shot at Aldis on the 1/21 edition of Powerrr.
