NWA Powerrr

Recommended Posts

I've always thought that Aldis rips off Flair way too much, and his shtick just doesn't work in 2021 NWA, especially when he is acting like Ric Flair circa 1982 while his promotion is booking stip matches indicating that top wrestlers are basically being held in NWA against their will. As if that wasn't bad enough on its own, now we also have a 3rd grade Horsemen ripoff stable? I don't see how any of this can be interesting.

I was never huge on Aldis but I thought he was okay during the initial run. His act is beyond tired now and it's made worse because it doesn't feel like there's anyone in the promotion that can take the belt off of him. But he's quickly become an instant fast forward for me now. Their best two workers, one is going commentary and they wrote the other one off of TV for a month.

Really good Thunder Rosa/Kamille match this week. Silly stipulations aside, one of the best Powerrr matches to date as it was actually given some time.

Powerrr feels like it is on its last legs. The Fite deal & the constant recap shows, along with the depleting roster are all bad signs. The website still doesn't have merch, I just don't think they recovered from losing the YouTube & the initial buzz. Thunder Rosa is obviously going to be gone. I'm sure someone will pick up Kamille too, as she's great although I don't think Vince McMahon would love her accent. 

I just hope that Tim Storm stays involved in professional wrestling for as long as he desires. That man is a treasure. He should be employed somewhere if he leaves NWA. Even if in a non-wrestling role. He's really well spoken & looks great in a suit. He knows wrestling.

I wish them luck on their upcoming pay-per-view but I can't imagine it doing too well.

Honestly, the show was done as early as the pandemic + #SpeakingOut combo hit. They were still producing "stuff" until Lagana got outed and putting stuff up on their youtube channel. As soon as that stopped, it seems the whole deal went awry. People were leaving left and right (Thunder Rosa really is a trooper, not to ask for her release for so long when she's been pretty much on AEW talent for ever now), the hype was totally deflated and the comeback with the weekly PPV shows from another company was a non-factor. Then this stopped, then deleting everything from their Youtube channel was a big mistake in term of perception to me, because I'm sure some people would have enjoyed to watch the older shows back, while (almost) no one would pay to watch weekly 45 mn TV studio show with no crowd (the interaction with the studio crowd was a big part of what made the product appealing to its fans, as it was trying to re-create, for better or worse, the old 80's feel of studio wrestling). When you add in the fact they have even less talent than they had during the first season (which really wasn't that much to talk about as far as I'm concerned) and they apparently do recap (of what ?) show every three weeks, yeah, that stuff was cursed. They got unlucky like everyone else during Covid and I guess Lagana was the brain of the operation. 

Still hope for Kamille to show up in AEW or IMPACT eventually. Aldis is a strange case because his entire gimmick/character is to be the NWA champ. I guess he could do that routine in either promotion, or MLW too, but it could only last for so long.

Guess they wanted to beat AEW Revolution for Worst PPV Ending in 2021

The NWA took all the wrong lessons from...er, well, the NWA.

NWA has picked up Kylie Rae and JTG for the upcoming PPV.

And it looks like Kylie Rae has signed officially with the NWA. Per Mike Johnson of PWInsider, NWA & Impact have been negotiating for a while about what to do with this situation (Kylie was still under contract with Impact) and it seems like they've worked something out in the past week.

I just don't know why anyone would sign Kylie Rae at this point. I've fought my own battles with mental issues and I know how hard it is, but how can any company book her at this point?

Unless of course this is another self own and the NWA isn''t big enough to set off her anxiety.

I agree. I think she is super talented but you are a fool if you make any plans around her or try to depend on her.
