Preview: NWA Nuff Said (2/11/23) – Full Card, Start Time, How to Watch

NWA Nuff Said

This weekend sees the National Wrestling Alliance heading to Tampa. On Saturday, NWA Nuff Said takes place live from Egypt Shrine Center and it appears to be a promising event on paper. In addition to no fewer than 6 championship matches, this show will feature some new faces, some of which may stand out to longtime professional wrestling fans more than others. Since this show’s announcements, tickets have sold out, though the action can still be seen via FITE. Without any further delay, here’s what to expect this Saturday evening.

Kevin Kiley Makes NWA Debut at Nuff Said

In one of the more surprising announcements, this Saturday, Kevin Kiley makes his National Wrestling Alliance debut. Though this name may be unfamiliar to many, others are likely to know him better by another name: Alex Riley. From 2007 to 2016, Kiley competed for WWE. He was an NXT Season 2 finalist, partnered with multi-time WWE Champion The Miz for a brief period, provided color commentary on NXT, and even competed against such names as Shinsuke Nakamura and Kevin Owens on the black and gold brand. Following his WWE release, Kiley wrestled only one match, which took place at a Create a Pro Wrestling event this past December. Kiley intends to make his NWA debut a successful one as he takes on the narrative-controlling EC3 at Nuff Said.

Homicide Looks to Become National Champion

To say that Homicide is hungry for gold would be an understatement. Earlier this month, on NWA USA, Homicide cut a profanity-laced promo that had the censors hard at work. During said promo, however, Homicide called out Cyon, the current NWA National Heavyweight Champion, for a title match. This led to Austin Idol, Cyon’s manager and father, coming out from the backstage area; this did nothing to soothe matters. If anything, this further infuriated the Brooklyn native, who threatened Idol for the title match before NWA officials intervened. From there, it was made official that Cyon would defend the NWA National Heavyweight Championship against Homicide. Will the title change hands at NWA Nuff Said?

Angelina Love Vies for the Burke

As mentioned earlier, this Saturday’s card features multiple title matches. Case and point, Kamille is set to defend the NWA World Women’s Championship against Angelina Love. Kamille’s dominance is well-documented, passing the 600-day threshold as champion this past January. On paper, one would assume that another successful title defense is all but guaranteed. However, Love can’t be counted out, especially given her experience across various wrestling promotions. From being a 6x TNA Women’s Knockout Champion to a former ROH Women of Honor World Champion – not to mention her role as a critical member of one of the most popular women’s factions, The Beautiful People – it wouldn’t be unfathomable for Love to add “The Burke” to her resume. Against an opponent like Kamille, however, such a feat would be herculean.

Matt Cardona Challenges for the Ten Pounds of Gold

In the main event of NWA Nuff Said, Matt Cardona challenges the reigning NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, Tyrus. The latter’s decision to relinquish the NWA World Television Championship paid off in spades, as he successfully captured “The Ten Pounds of Gold” at Hard Times in New Orleans this past November. Since then, it was only a matter of time until his first challenger stepped up to the plate. This proved to be Cardona, one of the two men Tyrus bested to capture the world title in the first place. The two ultimately signed a contract, inking their title match for Nuff Said. However, following a six-man tag team match victory that allowed the winner to choose the match stipulation, Tyrus elected for “No Seconds,” meaning that outside interference would be banned. Couple this with the announcement of Bully Ray as special guest commentator for this match and it’s fair to see why Cardona would be extra heated heading into this world championship encounter.
