NWA Powerrr | Episode 14 "Strictly Business Takeover" - 6:05pm EST / 11:05pm GMT
NWA Powerrr returns with Episode 14 "Strictly Business Takeover" covering the story of NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis attempt to not only get the control but takeover. With his enemies aligning like Ricky Morton, Tim Storm, Marty Scurll and others, the man holding Ten Pounds of Gold went on the offensive including bringing in Scott Steiner to lead a team on this week's NWA Powerrr. This past weekend, Nick Aldis went rogue and invaded Ring of Honor Wrestling and sent a statement to Marty Scurll and Villain Enterprises. This was in retaliation to The Villain's appearance at NWA Into The Fire.

We can confirm that Scott Steiner will cut a promo on this show. You've been warned!

In this broadcast, you'll see exclusive footage from Nick Aldis' appearance this past weekend's Ring of Honor events including some news you'll only find out first on #NWAPowerrr.

The Main Event of this episode sees the team of Strictly Business (Thom Latimer & Royce Isaacs teaming with Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner vs. Team Ricky Morton. The caveat on this huge main event, if Team Morton wins, then Ricky Morton faces Nick Aldis for #TenPoundsOfGold next week on Episode 15 of NWA Powerrr. Who will Ricky Morton pick as his partners?

Also on this episode the NWA TV Title Qualifying matches continue with Dave Dawson facing Zane Dawson with the winner advancing to #NWAHardTimes. Plus you'll get your first look at the brackets for the tournament.
Melina has her first one-on-one match in the National Wrestling Alliance as she faces Ashley Vox.
The Pope leads Outlaw Inc, (Eddie Kingston & Homicide ) vs. The Question Mark and Aron Stevens.

Depending on the year you had "greats" like Gunner, Shannon Moore, Jesse Neal, Anarquia, Crimson, Garett Bischoff, Rob Terry, Wes Brisco, Mike Knox, Tyrus, Mahabali Shera, Grado... and that's just from the male side of things.

I don't think Ken was ever the worst.

I mean I’m not surprised they’re getting renewed in addition to a second weekly show on TV but for another three years and only three and half months into Dynamite being on TV is a surprise to me. I hope AEW makes the best of it and Tony Khan and TNT’s investment is worth it.

> The Royal Rumble, with just one Raw left, still has only a few things announced. The 1/25 show at Minute Maid Stadium in Houston is expected to draw about 36,000 fans and be packed. The advance was more than 30,000 a few weeks ago. There are tons of secondary market tickets out with a $34 get in price. Unlike in the past when they would run four shows in the same market on big show weekends, this time the 1/23 Smackdown show will be from Dallas and the 1/26 Raw will be from San Antonio.

> There are two shows in Houston, the Rumble, and the Worlds Collide show the night before at the Toyota Center. Worlds Collide ticket sales are very weak, basically ringside and most but not all of 100s as they haven’t sold out the side of the hard camera, and the rest of the building isn’t for sale. Similarly, the 2/16 Takeover show in Portland also has a weak advance. About 60 percent of the 100s that would normally be for sale are on sale, not including what you’d expect not for sale due to the stage. They are not opening up any other seats at this point for Worlds Collide. The secondary market get in price is $26 for lower level tickets.

> Portland is a little better, with about 60 percent of the 100s and 60 percent of the 200s up for sale and a $38 get in price.

> Announced for the Rumble, besides the two matches, are Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan for the Universal title, Becky Lynch vs. Asuka for the Raw women’s title and Roman Reigns vs. King Corbin. Reigns and Corbin are also scheduled for the Rumble, so they could do a thing where one of them loses but then comes back and wins the Rumble. There’s no obvious Rumble winner this year, but Reigns winning to challenge Wyatt is a possibility. Brock Lesnar, the WWE champion, will be entering the Rumble at No. 1 and whoever he is to face at Mania, that would probably be a guy that either eliminates him or shoots an angle with him.

> Names announced for the men’s rumble are Lesnar, Reigns, A.J. Styles, Erick Rowan, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Ricochet, Drew McIntyre, Elias, Corbin, Dolph Ziggler, Otis, Tucker, Rusev, Bobby Lashley, Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy. Cain Velasquez has been told that he will be in. From that list, I only see Reigns and McIntyre as strong shots of winning with Corbin, Black or Orton as outside shots. The only names announced for the women’s match are Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss, Sarah Logan and Nikki Cross.

> Bayley vs. Lacey Evans for the Smackdown women’s title and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Braun Strowman for the IC title continue to be built up. Both were on the TLC schedule, but the decision was to move the former to Rumble, although it hasn’t been announced for Rumble. The latter didn’t happen due to Strowman’s injuries and not being cleared in time for TLC, but Strowman pinned him on television this past week. Andrade vs. Humberto Carrillo was being groomed for the U.S. title, but Andrade first has a ladder match for the title with Mysterio on Raw. Carrillo should be returning soon for that program but whether it’ll be on Rumble isn’t clear. Additionally, New Day vs. The Miz & John Morrison is the Smackdown title match they are starting to build.

> World’s Collide at this point has five matches announced, and when it comes to Takeovers, that could be the entire show. The bouts are Imperium (Walter & Alexander Wolfe & Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) vs. Undisputed Era (Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish), Rhea Ripley vs. Toni Storm for the women’s title, Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano vs. Tyler Bate & Trent Seven, Angel Garza defending the cruiserweight title in a four-way and Finn Balor vs. Ilja Dragunov.

> On paper, all of those matches look very strong and there have been angles shot for all on television, but they are more thrown together with one angle and little follow-up in most cases aside from the eight-man tag. In the cruiserweight match, one of Garza’s three opponents will be Isaiah Scott, while the other two will likely Jordan Devlin and Travis Banks. Devlin vs. El Ligero and Banks vs. Brian Kendrick are both being taped this coming weekend at the NXT U.K. tapings to determine the other two slots.

> Tessa Blanchard was the center of controversy on 1/12 for her past on the day she was booked to become the first female pro wrestler to win a male world championship on a PPV show. The Impact Hard to Kill show was to culminate a year-long storyline where Blanchard continued to wrestle men, in particular Sami Callihan, and came close but never beat Callihan (who later became world champion) nor won the X Division or world title.

> The company made the call a long time back to make Blanchard. 24, its top star. The idea was to push her by having her come close and fail in multiple big matches against men, with the idea they could showcase the chase of a woman to the world heavyweight championship level as a calling card. It was a storyline that wouldn’t be duplicated since none of the other promotions that have national television in the U.S., WWE, New Japan, AEW, MLW or ROH were doing intergender singles matches, which Blanchard among others had made popular on independent shows the past few years.

> Blanchard is the daughter of Tully Blanchard, but who was raised from childhood by Terry “Magnum T.A.” Allen, her father’s most famous career rival when Allen married Blanchard’s ex-wife. Blanchard has been controversial for years, since she was a standout for WWE at the Mae Young Classic, but due to a number of issues, even with her looks, heritage and ability, they passed on signing her. There was always talk of attitude issues and other problems, including issues of not getting along with talent, that followed her career in its early years including in Japan. It was those issues that in a sense also helped make her career, because she became the biggest female star on the independent scene, and popular in matches against men, including a notable bout with Brian Cage.

> Although both Don Callis and Scott D’Amore at Impact have long tenures and have in the past had a more traditional view on wrestling, they felt from the start of their tenure running the creative end in late 2018 to make Blanchard into the top star, basically remove her from the women’s division and work with almost exclusively men, feeling that there could be a fan backlash of pushing a woman that hard and having her beat men. It did seem to work as when she didn’t win the X Division title on PPV, there were fans complaining about how Impact would never let her hold a men’s title, which was the exact reaction they were looking for.

> For whatever reason, the day before the PPV, Blanchard sent out a tweet saying, “Hey women, try supporting one another. Cool things happen.” This touched a nerve with women who had worked with her in the past. Most notable was Allysin Kay, who was women’s champion in Impact as Sienna in 2016, who wrote, “Remember when you spat in a black woman’s face and called her the N word in Japan? Was that you `supporting women?’ The audacity of this tweet.”

>talkSPORT managed to catch Charlotte in London promoting WWE’s move to BT Sport in the UK this week and we asked her if Sane’s injury affected what they were planning to do in the match and how it was coping with such a bad injury in a big match like that.

>“It didn’t in the moment,” Charlotte started when asked if it changed the match. “I guess, everyone, how they felt afterwards is what made them feel different. In the moment, it was more it’s a tough spot. It’s the main event of a brutal pay-per-view and everyone has already seen Tables, Ladders and Chairs.

>“It’s feeding off the crowd, going with the crowd and feeding off their reactions. So I didn’t really think anything until after. Obviously Kairi was hurt, but in the match I’m just thinking ‘how do we keep people invested?’ with them already seeing so many different TLC, brutal matches. You’ve already seen a kendo stick, you’ve already seen a chair, you’ve seen a ladder, a table.

>“And the pressure of us delivering that, with a weird dynamic seeing me and Becky tag? To me, me and Becky tagging is more what I was thinking about. How does that come across and how our characters should be interacting on television. How do you go from this [indicates high level] to all of a sudden, they’re tagging? We had the let’s fight the enemy because we have a common enemy. [mentality]”

What a damning thing to say. It's one thing to want the match to be good and special and live up to the spot. It's one thing to continue the match if you're hurt. But to admit that you knew she was injured and still go through with that ... I mean, I'm not in the locker room and I'm certainly not a wrestler, but at face value, that's the kind of thing where I refuse to work with her. And she's arguably the best woman on the roster, so what does that tell you?

Really though, I think the actual problem is that, aside from a select few that probably includes Becky and Asuka and Nattie, NONE of the women know how to improvise. They overpractice the match, they memorize their spots, and they'll do those spots no matter how lame the match is or badly they've been set up or how unprepared the opponent is to do them. That's why you have the first ever women's Hell in a Cell turning out awful. That's why last year's Wrestlemania main event falls flat, and it happens again at Survivor Series. That's why a TLC match filled with garbage spots ends up with an injury that easily could have turned into something much, much worse, with the last person you'd expect it to.

Clearly WWE buys its own hype when it comes to the women's division making history, but they need to, at the very least, stop pretending they're on par when it comes to what goes on bell to bell. Retraining, better agents, swatting away any McMahon hands on it, I don't know, but something needs to happen.

So back in 2013 there was a kickstarter that was funded for a project to make a book about every Wrestling video game made. Maffew from Botchamania helped promote it as I guess the person in charge of the project was a friend of his and something like this was up his alley.

Needless to say, it was funded there were a few updates here and there and the shipping date was supposed to be in October of 2014. The person in charge of the project had ghosted the project with few examples, I personally don't know exactly what happened but I know it was a shitstorm a lot of people were rightfully pissed and even took it out on maffew and he even had to make a statement about it and that he had nothing to do with the project and was merely promoting the kickstarter.

Over the years there would be one or two updates from the author about how it was still in production and he offered refunds to whoever wanted it. I didn't care either way and let it be but now this past week I have been emailed a PDF of what looks to be the complete book with even added info on Wrestling games dating up to WWE 2k18. A physical copy is being mailed to me as well.

I haven't seen anyone else on here talk about it so I figured I would share this with you all as it is a nice piece of wrestling information and history and all the different games.

It’s funny, I contributed to the Kickstarter when it first happened and was really excited for it and everything but man Auden was fucking slow with everything and it made me feel bad for Maffew since people thought he was involved when he really wasn’t and got blamed and stuff. Anyways I was surprised when I saw it in my email and it’s a pretty good read of the history of wrestling video games as I like encyclopedic type reads like this.

>We went a whole year without a new thread. RIP Hiromu thread

>Puro Tube is on Tuesdays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST in /wooo/tube -http://taima.tv/r/wooo and mainly shows promotions outside of Dragon Gate and NJPW. Join in as everyone argues why their favorite fed is superior and Yanopost, Anopost, CIMApost and dance like Keita until your tummy is full from all that snackpine.
>DG Tube is on Thursdays at 8pm EDT / 1am BST in Mondai Night Ryu -http://taima.tv/r/mondainightryu and features the latest and classic Dragon Gate shows. Other stuff is featured here from time to time as well. (like cheesy 80s films or the mega marathon before Kobe World and recently OWE)

Outside of Puro Tube, there's usually a few puro marks in the chat that can help fill you in on storylines and find you matches. Just show up outside of big shows like Raw, and you'll find someone in there to help you out. Puro matches also show up in the playlist, so scroll around to find them. NJPW, DG, and DDT live events are regularly streamed in the tubes, check the schedule for details.


NJPW: Oldest and largest promotion in Japan. Owned by Bushiroad and is booked by Gedo. His booking gets the tubes riled up sometimes (all the time), but the match quality generally makes up for it. In the midst of something of a revival, and although you may argue that it is already drawing to a close, they are still doing good business at the moment. They run one of the largest shows in wrestling, called Wrestle Kingdom, every year on January 4th at the fabled Tokyo Dome. Most every show they run, large and small, air in the tubes. They have a slew of foreign wrestlers on their roster right now. They also have a wonderful streaming website over athttp://njpwworld.com/

Dragon Gate: Almost certainly the second largest promotion in Japan. Born out of the Toryumon promotion, which was the brainchild of Ultimo Dragon, their style is a mixture of classic puro, cruiserweight/junior heavyweight sprints, and lucha libre. Stable warfare is a huge part of the promotion, with most every wrestler in the company being aligned with a unit in some way. Though it is a big promotion, they retain a grassroots feel, with wrestlers selling merch before and after shows, and running many shows out of community centers and gyms. Most of their large shows air in the tubes, and footage is also posted here. They also have a show that is filmed monthly in their little studio in Kobe called Prime Zone which is wacky, fun, and full of Mondai Ryu schemes. They recently joined the streaming bandwagon over athttps://dragongate.live

DDT: Indie promotion gunning for the second-largest-in-Japan spot alongside Dragon Gate. Founded in 1997 by Sanshiro Takagi (a big Stone Cold Steve Austin fan), they have taken the western sports entertainment style to the next level with ridiculous matches and outrageous gimmicks, like violently gay wrestlers, promos done in PowerPoint before matches, championships specifically for dark matches, and blow-up dolls and ladders winning titles. Despite the goofiness, there is tons of talent there, with names like Kota Ibushi, HARASHIMA, and Kenny Omega having been regulars at one point or another. They have released ddtuniverse, which is like NJPW World. A streaming site for all your DDT needs. The other companies that work alongside DDT also have their stuff on there. They, like NJPW have a great streaming service over athttp://ddtuniverse.com/

AJPW: Still rebuilding from the glory days of the 80s and 90s, when icons like Jumbo Tsuruta, Mitsuharu Misawa, Kenta Kobashi, Toshiaki Kawada, Stan Hansen, Genichiro Tenryu, and Akira Taue loomed large. They were nearly killed after Misawa formed Pro Wrestling NOAH, taking most of the roster with him, but after a decade and a half of turmoil, they are doing fairly well right now, thanks in no small part due to the efforts of Jun Akiyama. The 80s/90s classics are a must-watch for any new puro fan, and their current product ain't bad either. They also joined the streaming sensation sweeping Japan right now. Their website can be found over athttps://www.ajpw.tv

NOAH: Founded in 2000 by Misawa after leaving AJPW. Was arguably the best fed in the world for a few years, featuring the Four Pillars of AJPW and new faces like KENTA, Naomichi Marufuji, Go Shiozaki, and Takeshi Morishima, but since the death of Misawa in 2009, they have taken quite a nose…

Arguably? They're totally different peaks though. The sellouts All Japan was getting for years straight after Misawa/Tsuruta in '91 and the mainstream popularity in Japan at the time completely outclasses modern NJPW.

That said, the quality of the top matches from both peaks are definitely comparable and might be a more interesting conversation.

The Japanese Kendo Nagasaki passed away recently. Guess wrestling deaths do come in threes as they say.
