The NWA Crockett Cup tag team tournament is filling up with contenders for the two-night event on June 3 and June 4 in Winston-Salem, NC.
The latest episode of NWA Powerrr featured two qualifying matches.
Daisy Kill & Talos competed against Jax Dane & Blake Troop.
Tonight! In a #CrockettCup qualifying match, Daisy Kill and @Jack_Talos take on @TheChrisSilvio's SVGS: @BigTroop22 & @TheJaxDane! pic.twitter.com/KjTrtaTz0k— NWA (@nwa) April 25, 2023
Dane and Troop are large men in their own right, but the 7-foot Talos had little trouble steamrolling them. Talos was in control for a chokeslam to Troop. Dane turned the tide with a low blow cheap shot. He hoisted the giant on his shoulders for a Samoan Drop and finished with a hefty clothesline. Dane & Troop advance to the Crockett Cup.
Mike Knox & Trevor Murdoch were in action against The Fixers.

These big boys were throwing fists. Wrecking Ball Legursky body slammed Knox and added a leg drop. The Fixers isolated Matt Cardona’s former best friend. That led to a hot tag for Murdoch. He hit a sitdown powerbomb on Jay Bradley. Knox borrowed Wrecking Ball’s name for a hammering running crossbody to take out Legursky. Murdoch connected on a big boot to Bradley. Murdoch and Knox finished Bradley with a high-low combo attack. Bobby Fulton ran out to celebrate with the winners. Knox & Murdoch advance to the Crockett Cup.
The official qualifier list for the Crockett Cup includes:
- Magnum Muscle (Dark Draper & Big Strong Mims)
- SVGS (Jax Dane & Blake Troop)
- Mike Knox & Trevor Murdoch
Unofficial duos likely to enter are Tyrus & his special partner, Ricky Morton & Kerry Morton, NWA world tag champs Mecha Wolf & Bestia 666, and NWA US tag champs AJ Cazana & Anthony Andrews. Aron Stevens’ Blunt Force Trauma are being forced to qualify.
