NWA is coming in hot Tuesday night (Jan. 31) for their first-ever live edition of Powerrr. The lineup features a world title contract signing, a wedding, the Champions Series final, and more on the road to Nuff Said.
Nuff Said is the next NWA PPV on February 11, which is inspired by Tyrus’ catchphrase. The main event is set to be Tyrus defending the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship against Matt Cardona. All that needs to happen is signing the paperwork to make it official. As is common in professional wrestling, contract signings generally erupt in fisticuffs.
⚡️ World Champion @PlanetTyrus and 2022 Independent Wrestler of the Year @TheMattCardona will meet face to face to sign the contract for their HUGE Title Match on Feb. 11th in Tampa, FL for 'NUFF SAID!' #NWAPowerrr pic.twitter.com/dUBypJZa9Q— NWA (@nwa) January 19, 2023
One thing to keep an eye on is if NWA uses this segment to build any babyface sentiment on either end. Tyrus and Cardona are both heels, and that goes against traditional booking.
What’s wrestling without a little bit of love? Aron Stevens is bringing the romance for his wedding to May Valentine. The ceremony will be officiated by Sam Teamo, who looks suspiciously like Santino Marella in the silhouette. As is common in professional wrestling, weddings generally erupt in chaos.
⚡️ We'll see the wedding of @AronsThoughts and @mayradiasgomes officiated by the honorable... Sam Teamo? #NWAPowerrr pic.twitter.com/CPrI8p3IV8— NWA (@nwa) January 19, 2023
Stevens has beef with Kratos and Question Mark II, so security better monitor them in the case of intrusion. There is also the possibility of Stevens getting cold feet. He promised long ago to take Valentine on vacation to Brazil, however, there was always an excuse not to travel.
The Champions Series started with eight teams, and now we are down to two. The final is between Team Tyrus and Team Rock N’ Roll. The prize is valuable with every member of the winning squad awarded a title shot of their choosing. The format will be Team War, which is an elimination style team gauntlet bout. Think of a torneo cibernetico without tags. One on one until pinfall or submission, then the next team member enters to continue the contest.
⚡️ The Champions Series Finals will be decided in an ULTIMATE Team War! At stake? The winners receive a title shot of their choosing. Any Time. Any Place.— NWA (@nwa) January 19, 2023

It is shaping up to be a wild night.
