Galli said new episodes of NWA Powerrr start this Tuesday on FITE but you have to sign up for a paid subscription to see it. He didn’t give the price but it’s $5 a month. That’s just for the NWA Powerrr subscription itself and no other FITE paid programming.

He called Nick Aldis his boy and taunted Tim Storm about losing the NWA Worlds Title to Aldis. He said Stevens called him for advice on how to beat Aldis. He said sometimes it’s good to be the underdog but people who think Stevens is one is dead wrong. He said he’s personally interested to see the outcome tonight which definitely seemed like a tease for interfering.
They did a 10-bell salute to the passing of Buddy Colt/Ron Read, Jim Crockett, Jr. and Joseph Hudson/The Question Mark.
Emotional build at the start of the main event. The referee Robert King gave instructions and said it was not only for the NWA Worlds Title, it was for Hudson.
NWA Worlds Champion Nick Aldis pinned Aron Stevens with an inside cradle but it looked like their feet were in the ropes. There was no interference at all and a back and forth technical match.Stevens brought out a mask of The Question Mark afterwards. Aldis shook hands. The roster came out with a Question Mark/Mongrovian flag and chanted his name. Stevens said “Thar was for you! We love you!” to close the show.
The show then briefly came back on. The announcers were standing at the table and Tim Storm was crying. Stevens said “Thank you very much” then dropped the mic and left the ring.
