Crockett Cup Qualifying Match: The Spectaculars (Brady Pierce and Rush Freeman) vs. Rolando Freeman and Eric Jackson, with special guest referee Homicide

Homicide takes his sweet time taking off his jacket and Yankees sweatshirt, giving it to Kyle Davis to take care of his belongings.  No referee shirt for The Notorious Legend, but really…are you gonna be the one to tell him to wear one?

I didn’t think so.

The match starts with Rolando and Pierce but he wants his little brother in the ring.  Rush tags in and he and Rolando prove brothers are gonna fight. Rush has the size, but Rolando has the speed and cannonballs him in the corner.  A tag back to Pierce and now is the time on Sprockets when we dance.  Well, no, not really, because Pierce is done dancing and he knocks down the Biggest Brother.  Rolando tags in Jackson and he nails a sling blade on Pierce, then a dropkick, and finishes into a powerslam variant for a two count.  Pierce returns the receipt with his own powerslam for a cover of two.  Rush tags in and locks Jackson in a chinlock as Rolando wants to jump in, but Jackson powers through the hold to tag him in.  Rolando fires away after Pierce and pummels him in the corner until Homicide interjects. He shoves him away and goes to attack his brother Rush, but Homicide is no ordinary ref and he tosses him away, telling him to obey his commands.  Rolando shoves Homicide again, proving he’s got more guts than brains. He goes up the top turnbuckle after Homicide orders him down.  Rolando continues to ignore his commands until Homicide shoves him off and Pierce rolls him up for the quick pin and the win.

May Valentine is backstage with Gaagz the Gymp and Sal…vation? 

Okay, then. 

Sal says after their time in The Miserably Faithful, he knows pain is temporary, but love is eternal. He needs his best friend, Gaagz, and after seeing the bodies in the wastelands, Sal explains that what’s scarier is a life without love. All you need is love.  As Valentine asks Gaagz his thoughts on tonight’s event, he offers this thought-provoking comment:

While Sal tries to invoke The Beatles by talking about love, his eyes say Helter Skelter

But now let’s go to women’s action with…

Angelina Love vs. Kylie Paige

The veteran is not showing the Love to the young upstart, but Paige proves she is just as devious as she pulls Love headfirst into the second turnbuckle.  She continues to jeer until Love offers a handshake of sportsmanship.  Paige is understandably hesitant, and then finally takes her hand, and then Love follows with a swift kick to the gut.  There was a point in the middle of the match where Paige and Love are spotty during a pin exchange, but it’s the Psycho Girl in charge, and she puts an end to things with a flash Botox Injection outta nowhere for the decisive three count.

Your Winner via Pinfall:  Angelina Love

Valentine is not with Pollo Del Mar on standing by her man, the “Thrillbilly” Silas Mason, on his push that seems to be due to her influence. Del Mar comments that Mason is, in her words, “A generational athlete. Men of his scale, stature, and charisma don’t come along very often. But I also consider myself a generational talent. And when someone like myself enters a place of such history and legacy as the National Wrestling Alliance, we have a little extra to prove. So if it is my obligation and opportunity to cheerlead Silas Mason to be all that he can be, I am very proud to stand by his side.”

We now head to the Main Event, where the Miserably Faithful implodes in a…

Crockett Cup Qualifying Match: Max the Impaler and Judais (with Father James Mitchell) vs. Sal the Pal and Gaagz the Gymp

As Gaagz and Sal enter, Sal takes off the hood from his jacket to show off his newly shorn head of Sal.  This came about as they defied Mitchell at the pre-show of NWA 312.  Judais demands they get on their knees and kiss his foot.  Sal and Gaagz look like they’ll acquiesce to the Priest of Punishment, but they end up double-teaming and pummeling the big man before Judais explodes at Gaagz.

As Max enters the fray, the bell finally rings, and Sal comes in and tries to play mind games at the start, but Max ain’t playing around.  Judais and Max take turns beating down their former stablemate, and then Gaagz is back in the ring and it’s more of the same despite the Gymp’s best efforts.  Judais launches Gaagz with a fallaway slam, then he gets isolated by him and Max, making him a Gymp in Peril.  Gaagz escapes the córner for the a hot tag, and Sal is a Pal En Fuego.  He goes up top and then bites down on Judais’ hand to stop his choke slam attempt.  Then he and Gaagz go for a double clothesline.  Judais breaks through both men’s arms, and he nails his own double clothesline on Gaagz and Sal.  He picks up Gaagz and then dumps him onto Max’s shoulders for a fireman’s carry before slamming him to the mat like a sack of flour unceremoniously to cover for the one, two, and three.

Father James Mitchell raises the hands of his progeny, as he cackles at the broken bodies of Sal and Gaagz as the show goes to the credits.
