Welcome to Wrestling Inc's live coverage of the National Wrestling Alliance's weekly episodic, Powerrr. Today's show was taped from the GPB Studios in Atlanta Georgia, and streaming on the official NWA Facebook and Youtube Pages. Feel free to sound off in the comments, and enjoy the show.
Footage of Aron Stevens quitting NWA from last week's episode is played. He promised to "never return to this hell-hole again." Cut to the debut of the Question Mark, who made quite an impact in his in-ring debut by picking up an easy victory. We also see highlights of the Wildcards retaining over Eddie Kingston and Homicide in last week's main event. This led to a locker-room clearing confrontation, but the feed cut off before anything got physical.
The ongoing story of Kamille not speaking for herself is recapped. Commentator Joe Galli has done his best to be fair and ask Kamille questions but to no avail. James Storm's promo after losing the NWA National championship is played, where Storm sets his sights on world champion Nick Aldis, who he calls the "Killer Whale."
Intro song. (INTO THE FIRE!!!)
Joe Galli and Jim Cornette welcome us to another edition of Powerrr. Loud "NWA" chants from the crowd. They cut over to Dave Marquez who is prepared to interview world champion Nick Aldis. Aldis comes out in gear. Marquez asks about Kamille. "What do you need to know about Kamille," asks Aldis. "Here's all you need to know David. If you don't see Kamille by my side, just assume that her actions are her decisions and have nothing to do with me. This is the NWA, where we take care of business in the squared circle." Aldis then says he's going to prove why he is the greatest NWA champion in the modern era, and says he'll be facing Trevor Murdoch, a man he has a lot of respect for. He makes sure to announce that it's an exhibition, and not a title match.
Nick Aldis versus Trevor Murdoch
Aldis offers a handshake...Murdoch accepts. Tie-up. Wristlock from the champion. Murdoch immediately reverses the pressure. Aldis shows off his technique with a fancy counter but Murdoch powers him to the mat. He drives his shoulder in Aldis, then applies a hammerlock. Aldis attempts to switch around...Murdoch keeps the hold in...Aldis gets to the ropes to break it up. Murdoch kicks the ropes into Aldis' groin. He opens up on Aldis with running lariats, followed by three straight powerslams. Crowd is hot for this bout. Murdoch charges...Aldis gets an elbow up...Murdoch shakes it off and hits a full-nelson slam. He climbs...top rope bulldog connects! Cover...Aldis gets his foot on the ropes. Murdoch climbs again...Aldis nails a right hand and climbs up...Murdoch pushes him off but falls attempting a dropkick. Aldis quickly locks in the cloverleaf. Murdoch taps.
Nick Aldis wins by submission
Post match, Aldis says that he respects Murdoch, and offers another handshake. Murdoch obliges ending the segment.
Commercial for NWA's first pay per view, Into the Fire, which will stream on FITE TV. It's announced that the event is sold-out.
Rock 'N' Roll Express are out at Marquez's desk. They're in their gear. Morton says that they hope to become 9-time NWA tag team champions. This brings out the Wild Cards. Latimer and Issacs says that they don't care how many times Rock 'N' Roll Express have held the gold, they are the champs now, and the Express can kick their ass. Marquez then asks Latimer what his relationship with Kamille is. Latimer responds..."We're just friends."

Flashback to last week, when the Question Mark defeated Parker in his debut. Commentary asks the question: "Who is the mark"? Back to the action. NWA National champion Colt Cabana has joined Galli and Cornette at the announcers table. He'll be watching Ricky Starks in action. Starks is already in the ring...he'll be facing the Question Mark.
Ricky Starks versus Question Mark
Mark rocks Starks with a big chop to start. He hits Starks in the cut, then sends him to the mat with a clubbing forearm. Starks lands a few shots of his own, but Mark slows the pace by chopping Starks down. He charges...Starks dumps him to the outside. Off the ropes...suicide dive from Starks. Brawl ensues. Aron Stevens comes out of nowhere and hits Starks. Referee calls for the bell.
Match is ruled a no-contest
Stevens and the Question Mark team up to assault Starks. Stevens holds Starks up for Question Mark's signature double-finger strike to the throat. He goes to do it again but Colt Cabana interrupts and chases Stevens and the Mark off. Stevens tries to pose for the crowd...he gets booed. However, the Question Mark poses and gets heavily cheered.

Commentary tells us that tonight's main event will be Aron Stevens and the Question Mark facing Ricky Starks and Colt Cabana in tag team action. Eli Drake joins them. "Last time I stood out here...Ken Anderson wanted to come out here and make some noise. Seems like everybody just wants to come here and make noise." He then tells Anderson that if he wants to come at him, he will see that his expiration date has already come. This brings Anderson out. He runs down his accolades, including performing at the grandaddy of them all, but says he couldn't be happier than to be at the rebirth of the NWA. He says he's sick and tired of Drake running his mouth. "Let's do it right now. What do you say man?" Drake hesitates. He goes to take off his jacket and walk to the ring, but then attacks Anderson and slams him into ring. He reveals a metal turnbuckle rod from under the desk and smashes it off Anderson's back. Several referees and security come out to attend to Anderson. They physically restrain Drake from using the rod again.

That's the show friends.
