Very impressed. Loved the sleek, stripped-down look. Commentary was spot on. The video packages were well-produced and caught me up to speed. The promos were great and felt genuine. And the matches never overstayed their welcome and were exactly what they needed to be. My only main gripe was the commentary audio was too low. But overall, I was very satisfied. I'm definitely tuning in for more.

They did a lot in a single hour, too. I mean...a lot.

kinda skipped around. im tired and just wanted to see familiar faces.

im only 23 and i never bothered to go back and watch NWA of old but i know the camera work and the interviews were a callback to that, but other than those things, how true to the original product was this show? like what were the big differences if there were any? was there no theme music in the original NWA?

Eli Drake is electric.

Homicide and Eddie Kingston excited me. ive always really loved Eddie so its always nice to see him.

didnt pay THAT much attention to the main event and thats partly because of Camille. i know im late to the party but she is unreal. i would pay her to hold my hand to a grill.

That's Strowman's woman. You better be prepared to get those hands.

I'm officially on Team NWA.  Loved the old school feel, yet, it was modernized.  They fit a lot into that hour and everything was well done and did not feel rushed.  Can't wait to watch this every week.

I think the presentation, ring and studio is perfect! It's old school, simple and small but also modern enough. Something about it really catches my interest. Truly different, unique and fresh!

 

Doing the old style interview podium section close to ringside for after matches and promos is a nice touch. Bonus points for using Into The Fire by Dokken as the show's theme song!

I usually don't like suggesting that anyone leaves MLW, because I love that promotion. But, I really hope the Von Erichs jump from MLW to NWA sooner rather than later...(or maybe they get a deal that allows them to do both). I know those guys are still super green...but it just feels like the right place for them to be. I also hope Tessa Blanchard arrives in NWA at some point.

I usually can't stand Jim Cornette but was okay with him on commentary. It felt right

Say what you will about Cornette's viewpoints but the guy has always been a fantastic commentator and manager.

Getting the rub from Rock should do considerable good for next week's stream...maybe as much as double views.

Not sure about that as I don't know if some people looked up AEW because he congratulated and praised them after Double or Nothing but it's cool that someone like him is still keeping up with the wrestling industry and giving them fair props.

 

I didn't know he had beginnings with the territories like Memphis. Nice to see him remembering his roots

^ Easier to double smaller numbers than larger ones. I don't know how many people watched NWA after the fact...but, I know the live numbers of Youtube and Facebook combined were about 16,000 live views. I think Rock spreading the word about them could easily double that.

True. So I always thought that he went from wrestling training straight to the wwf. When was he wrestling in Memphis for a small territory promotion?

Watching Powerrr now. I get the old school vibe they're going for, but no entrance music is killing me lol

I forgot all about the *censored*ing DCC til I saw Eddie Kingston, Bram and James Storm in the same segment lol
