NWA Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Weird episode, for sure...and I'm wondering if the removal of Cornette is the reason for it.

 

I also agree that Thunder Rosa has come off as a conflicting character to me...and I do understand they they want to show respect and appreciation to their talents and their achievements, but, I don't think this was the way to go about it. Having a separate youtube video just for that special would have made more sense.

 

As for everything else...yeah, Eli Drake is better in NWA than he ever was in TNA for me personally. I never liked him until now. I'm finally starting to see just how good of a promo this guy can actually cut.

 

Speaking of decent promos...I don't remember Melina being as fluid at talking either. She rambled on a bit too much at times...but she seemed vastly improved from whatever WWE stuff I remember from her.

 

Empty arena match was very little proper content...but it was better than nothing.

 

Aldis vs Storm is okay, I guess.

Theres only one show left from the tapings, I believe, and since theyre a couple weeks away from the PPV they needed to put something up. The timing is not the best, though, since Id say morale is low right now among fans of the show and this was not the show to raise their spirits.

I must say my enthusiasm going into the show this week is rather low. With last week's clipshow, Cornette's departure, and the weak build to the PPV, I'm not super high on NWA right now... The low morale has reached me. Hopefully this show can give me hope.

 

*censored*ing Aron Stevens. lol

Fun episode. Starting to get something going before ITF. Thank god.

 

Also, hope Bennett is permanent, and not just one time deal. They announced him as a one time deal for ITF...but maybe he'll want to stay on commentary after that. Would be a good fit, I think.

THE VILLAIN

 

 

Doubt he signed or anything. Probably just doing a loop as a favor to Aldis I think.

 

I also heard something about NWA changing almost their whole roster a few tapings from now as a way to keep things fresh and to make it feel more like a territory.

Commentary audio still sounds too low for Season 2.

Shooter Stevens. lol

That was weirdly edited. Cut to Scurll for two seconds from the PPV and then a replay of what happened ringside moments ago.

Heh. CW Anderson.

I don't get why they had Jocephus come out to do some random gag when they're supposed to save him for

The Question Mark? reveal.

 

Where's your accent Koloff?

Aldis, you arrogant shit.

TV title is so beautiful.

Aldis forming a team and Kamille is no longer his insurance policy. O_O

Man, Drake's voice. lol

So Anderson is heel now?

Eli Drake is really impressing me.

No. Wild Card? Aldis, you're better than this!

Swerve! They should've built this up more, though. All of this was just introduced in this episode.

Don't think anyone in any promotion minus maybe Okada looks and sounds like a World Champion like Nick Aldis does.

 

Definitely. He gives me the same vibe I get from watching Flair in his prime. There's Nick Aldis and then there's everyone else (In the realm of NWA, though I do feel he is/can be a big star overall). I don't even like the guy in the ring that much but the way he presents himself is top notch. Cody is the only person who can even rival him in that department imo

Just now caught up and man, Tim Storm is incredible. Unlike some people on this show (Zicky Dice, Royce Isaacs) this guy you can believe every word he says because it truly comes from the heart and he's not playing some character. More promos like this, please.

I love NWA, man...I'm happy they're finding their legs. There were some shakey episodes early on...but these past few have been beyond solid. Tim Storm and Nick Aldis are both legends in the making. It's great to see Tim get recognition for holding NWA down while it was a dying brand. He deserves that. The man cuts some legendary promos. Hopefully his retirement is pretty far off...and when he does retire, he should get recognition then as well.

 

Trevor Murdoch has also been a highlight for me. Pleasure to watch him shine as himself and not a joke.

 

 

Also...somebody get Billy on the horn. Because, this needs to be the theme for the Hard Times PPV:

Tim Storm has become one of my favorites to watch. Hard to believe he's 52 years old. Hopefully, he still has a lot left in the tank.

Holy shit...Ricky Morton's scalp is chemical burned to all hell by bleach. Keep that camera zoom away from him.

 

And how do Scott Steiner's tattoos somehow get worse every single time I see him? :lol:

I was gonna complain about the Hard Times match being Aldis vs Flip Gordon...but, then I thought harder on it...

 

I guess they're doing that non title match because they want the focus to be 100% on the National title. I still think it should be someone bigger than Flip...but, oh well.
