Here’s what to expect tonight at 6:05 PM EST.

NWA Powerrr Card:

Strictly Business Celebrates Their New Champion

La Rebelión Make Their NWA Powerrr Debut

NWA World Television Championship: Pope (c) vs. Luke Hawx

La Rebelión Make Their NWA Powerrr Debut

The team of Bestia 666 and Mecha Wolf, collectively known as La Rebelión, made their National Wrestling Alliance debut at When Our Shadows Fall. They emerged victorious in the first match of the show proper, besting three other teams in a four-way tag team match. This was an incredible showing for La Rebelión, as they brought lucha libre expertise to the NWA. Tonight, they are set to make their NWA Powerrr debut. Whoever steps up to the plate will be up for a fast-paced challenge they have to be at the top of their game to overcome.

Strictly Business Celebrates Their New Champion On NWA Powerrr

When Our Shadows Fall was a big night for Strictly Business. In the most important match of her career, the blonde brickhouse, Kamille, defeated wrestling veteran Serena Deeb for the NWA World Women’s Championship. This marked Kamille’s first-ever championship victory in the National Wrestling Alliance; a major accomplishment, to be certain. However, it also indicated that Strictly Business was that much more draped in championship gold. Many NWA fans would argue that this wasn’t without its controversy.

In the main event of the aforementioned pay-per-view, Nick Aldis retained the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship against Trevor Murdoch under dubious circumstances. With the help of Thom Latimer, as well as a steel chair, Aldis was able to get Murdoch disqualified, which left fans and NWA personnel alike beside themselves. On this edition of NWA Powerrr, Strictly Business will celebrate their new titleholder in Kamille. What will the festivities entail? Is there a possibility that another women’s wrestler steps up to the plate to challenge Kamille? Tune in later tonight to find out.

NWA World Television Championship: Pope (c) vs. Luke Hawx

Another man that had his hands full this past Sunday was Pope. On the show, the NWA World Television Champion battled Tyrus in a non-title grudge match. For the past several weeks, animosity had built between the two, the fire being fanned by none other than Tyrus’ own representative, Austin Idol. Though Pope put forth a valiant effort at When Our Shadows Fall, it was Tyrus that emerged victorious. Keep in mind that this was a non-title encounter, meaning that Pope’s standing as NWA World Television Champion remains intact.

Tonight, on NWA Powerrr, Pope defends said standing against Luke Hawx. NWA fans may be familiar with this individual due to his sporadic appearances on the promotion’s programming. During the When Our Shadows Fall pre-show, Hawx bested Jeremiah Plunkett to be crowned the new number one contender for the NWA World Television Championship. Hawx has more than two decades of wrestling experience under his belt. Furthermore, in addition to wrestling, he is a stuntman, actor, as well as the Founder and CEO of the professional wrestling school known as Wildkat Sports. Can Hawx add the NWA World Television title to his extensive resume as well?
