‘NWA: Powerrr’ Review (Apr 27th 2021)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s NWA: Power review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have Nick Aldis rubbing his crotch on his own forehead in a record-breaking self-tea bag maneuver worthy of completely ignoring. Trevor Murdoch fights for his right to not be suspended for thirty days without pay, like Goofy after he got caught f—king Minnie. Pot Cookie Monster wants to know where that hash is man. NWA gets goin’ on like a badonkadonk right now!

[Author’s Note: Tyrus and Thom Latimer, respectively accused of sexual harassment and assault, are present on this show and, while not found guilty or innocent of their alleged crimes in a court of law, if their presence alarms or upsets you, then viewer discretion should be advised].
  • Match #1: Kratos vs. Sal Rinauro (no contest)

    The Score: 0 out of 10

  • Match #2: The Pope def. Tyrus – NWA World Television Championship Match (Time Limit Draw)

    The Score: 3 out of 10

  • Match #3: (Main Event) Team Aldis (Thom Latimer, Chris Adonis & Kratos) defeated Team Murdoch (Trevor Murdoch, Aron Stevens & Tim Storm)

    The Score: 5 out of 10

Final Verdict: 4/10

Cheap mimicry of an outdated formula for nostalgia took this show down a few pegs, in addition to the first few matches being either short and bad or long and bad. The main event was paint-by-numbers and not very skilled painting if we’re getting to the point. There was a lot of talent here, but that talent was forced to lower its quality level to one that would allow its inferior owner/operator Billy Corgan to feel like he has successfully tapped into what made the NWA great some fifty years ago. I wasn’t alive fifty years ago, but even I can tell you that using the worst tropes of Dusty Rhodes bag of booking tricks is no way to book a card. I feel like I’m stuck reviewing a bad tribute show run by lazy promoters who just want to make a quick buck. What a lousy show this was. Murdoch is gone for a month. Why? Is he sick? Is a relative injured or in trouble? I have no confidence in Billy Corgan to bring the NWA to prominence and even less so week after week. Is it really so difficult for these promoters to just pay attention to what works and just do it? Ah. F—k it. I’m tired of this. I’ll see you next week.
