There has been a lot of change in the title picture in the last month of the National Wrestling Alliance. None more so than “Thrillbilly” Silas Mason who chased after the NWA National title alongside Pollo Del Mar. But after coming up short multiple times, he ditched his lady and teamed with The Southern Six and now he is a title holder. But can Dak Draper be the one to pull the upset on tonight’s NWA Powerrr, or is the Mile High Magnum going on a Thrillride?
There are also other feuds in the picture, as Joe Galli Narrates the intro discussing the aforementioned Mason as well as issues with the former SVGs Jax Dane and Chris Silvio, Esq.
We’ll find out what the repercussions are as we head to the Skyway Studios in Nashville, TN. Joe Galli and Danny Dealz have the call, and your First Match is a…
Number One Contender’s Match for the NWA Women’s Tag Team Championship: Natalia Markova and Taylor Rising vs. M95 (Missa Kate and Madi)
M95 lost the belts to Pretty Empowered on Night Two on NWA 75, and they are itching for another chance at the upcoming Samhein PPV. Markova and Rising want to disrupt those plans, and they may have the tools to do it.
As the match starts off, this goes back and forth between Kate and Markova, then a tag to Madi but Markova gains the upper hand with a neckbreaker that gets a two count. Then she tags in Rising and they nail a double suplex to cover for a near-fall, and then Rising’s Tiger feint kick misses the mark on Madi. Kate comes back in, but Rising overpowers her and gets a short ‘rana for a count of two. As the ref checks on Kate, Madi takes advantage of Rising by grabbing her arm and slamming her into the middle turnbuckles. M95 does a good job cutting the ring in half as they keep Rising in their corner and in peril until a double crossbody by her and Kate connects and both women are slow to recover. Rising finally gets up and gets the hot tag to Markova and she is a Crush en Fuego, as she lands a Beautiful Destruction kick to Kate in the corner and follows with a Jazz stinger to Madi to cover, but gets a two count. Now all four women brawl and are hauling out the heavy artillery. Once the dust settles, Markova hits a missile dropkick and avoids a Reality Check by Madi. Markova cinches in with the Crush Clutch for the tap-out win.

Sam Laterna is backstage with Chris Silvio, Esq, and Blake “Bulletproof” Troop. As Laterna asks what prompted him to have this match with Jax Dane, he corrects “Not May” that he didn’t; but Dane did. He goes on to explain he did everything for him over the years but realized he needed to prioritize himself. So he promises that he will show Dane that he is a dangerous man. Troop will face Dane next but won’t talk about him until he faces Silvio, and then it’ll be “lights out.”
Now we get more title action for the…
NWA World Junior Heavyweight Championship: Colby Corino(c) vs. Matt Vine
Galli informs us that Corino has fired Jamie Stanley. Probably due to a conflict of interest with his teaming with his rival Joe Alonzo, but I wish we could have seen that play out in front of an audience.
Early on, Corino kicks at Vine’s legs, but he is still very powerful despite cutting weight to be considered for the junior heavyweight division. Corino proves at every turn he is very ring-savvy with a huracanrana and a rising knee strike. Vine counters another huracanrana with a side slam and then gets Corino in a surfboard and then a knee to the gut to keep him down. Corino fights back but Vine with a delayed vertical suplex, and plants him on the top turnbuckle. But The Last Bastion leapfrogs over Vine and dropkicks him to the corner and gets a cannonball followed by a double stomp for a two count. He goes for a clothesline that misses and then Corino hits the ropes and Vine catches him with a spinebuster to cover for a count of two. They both go to a series of pinfall attempts and then Corino gets the advantage as he chops him down with a series of short arm clotheslines and delivers the Zed’s Dead (single arm) DDT to retain.

Sam Laterna Rising and Markova backstage in the aftermath of their previous match. Markova says they proved they could take on a tough challenge in M95. She says they will show dominance, and then Rising takes over the mic and adds they will be pretty empowered and are rising to the top of the Women’s division.
Is it me, or do you sense the team won’t last long? Just curious.
Aron Stevens is at The Podium and talks (down) to the fans of the NWA on class and decorum, but Murdoch and Knox come up and want another shot at the NWA Tag Team titles, and will do anything. As Stevens begins to expound on Geoffrey Chaucer and then he gets an idea. He lays out the stipulations, especially for those “dirt sheet for brains fans” (Ouch!), since he explains that it is not about the “forbidden door, but the top floor.” Stevens grants them a rematch, but states if they lay a hand on him or Blunt Force Trauma, the match is off. As for what the Crockett Cup winners want, Murdoch wants to be a champ again, and Knox wants to just punch Stevens in the face. Stevens agrees and says it will be a Knights of the Round Table match so that they to learn nobility from Blunt Force Trauma.
Laterna is backstage with Thom Latimer and Kamille having a second in his corner for his heavyweight match against EC3. Latimer takes his hat off for EC3 “dethroning the monster,” but notes he has no one on his side. He knows what he is capable of, and that’s why he will have an Insurance Policy in The Brickhouse. Kamille isn’t going to worry about a rematch for the NWA Women’s title but wants to back up her man and return to the role that first got her notice. However, Kamille makes it clear she is not just “an insurance policy,” but that she is a momma lion and will f*** someone up.
THE INSURANCE POLICY IS BACK! 💪🏼

You wanna argue with her after that promo? Good luck, Junebug!
Now for a grudge match with…
Chris Silvio, Esq. vs. Jax Dane
There is no furry vest, but a return to Godzilla. Chants of “Dane is gonna kill you!” permeate throughout the building, followed by “You skipped leg day!” at Silvio. But Silvio tries to Jedi mind trick Dane as he talks trash about being an embarrassment. Then he further pokes the bear as he asks for a mic and a steel chair and says he couldn’t finish him because he wasn’t able to Finish Tim Storm as he lay injured on Night One of NWA 75.
Finally, Silvio calls him weak, and that makes Dane unzip the vest and then pop the trunk, followed by a short visit to Trap City for the tap-out win.
Your Winner via Submission: Jax Dane
Troop comes out the help Silvio to the back, and the former tag partners have a staredown. Bulletproof and The Dane Event? Sign me up!
Laterna talks now with Joe and AJ Cazana. Since his tag partner, who is not mentioned by name, left AJ high and dry he says he “cut the dead weight” and will get a new tag team partner, and then he will have the NWA US Tag Team champions Daisy Kill and Talos Dead to Rights.
At the Podium with Kyle Davis are Big Strong Mims and Zicky Dice. Mims talks about being here in the NWA since day one (which you can read a little here if you will indulge the shameless plug). Mims earned his spot and remembers the last time Dice was her, and not only was he “Outlandish” but also a bit disrespectful. Mims promises that when they face each other next week, he will beat the respect in him. Dice retorts and talks about when he was on TV, he had “lost his mind, his wife,” and almost his life. But he is back in the NWA to prove to everyone that “Outlandish” is television, and it’s a roll of the dice who gets the NWA Television title.
Damn, if that isn’t going to be a great match. But let’s now head to the ring for your Main Event for the…
NWA National Championship: “Thrillbilly” Silas Mason (c) vs. Dak Draper
As the bell rings, Mason slaps Draper and he goes right at Big Daddy Thrill. He connects with a dropkick, and that makes Mason mad. Draper lights him up with chops but Mason stops that with a head butt. He whips him into the corner and Mason lifts Draper over the top rope and the Mile High Magnum comes back with a springboard rollup for a two count and a sunset flip for another near-fall. He shoulder tackles Mason between ropes but the Thrillbilly gives Draper a knee lift and takes the fight to the outside of the ring. Mason is in control with a Terry Funk-inspired fist drop and slows down on the offense. He gets a boot to his throat and then gives Draper a warm welcome to Thrillbilly Country with a gutwrench slam. He whips him to the ropes and Draper catches Mason with a back elbow. Another whip to the corner and Draper climbs up the top and reverses to a crossbody. He also connects with a springboard back elbow and Draper goes to gutwrench but gets blocked. A swinging side suplex by Draper and he goes for his finisher but Mason gets out and clubs him down. Mason goes for a powerbomb But Draper counters into a rollup for a two count. He tries to capitalize, but Draper cannot survive the Thrillride and is down in one, two, three.

The rest of The Southern Six joins Mason in his successful title defense as the show goes to the credits.
A good main event between Mason and Draper for this episode, and Dane/Silvio had more action with the words, adding something spicy to his upcoming match with Troop later on. Also, Stevens utilizes The Power of Douchenozzlery to get Knox/Murdoch to agree to his terms. I’m curious how a Round Table will factor in a wrestling match.
And most important: Do no screw around with Kamille, in an out of the ring. Good luck, EC3.
Until then, see ya in seven!
