Powerrrr intro song.
Joe Galli and Jim Cornette welcome us to another edition of NWA Powerrr. They run down the evening’s card. The National Heavyweight champion James Storm approaches the desk. He says he’s tired of having to prove himself week after week. “I don’t have to prove anything,” growls Storm. He calls out Colt Cabana, who comes out to confront Storm. Cabana says everyone knows that the title belongs to him, and the only reason he doesn’t have it is because of his bum leg. Eli Drake and Nick Aldis join in. Aldis acknowledges Storm’s constant challenges, then says that Drake’s only vice in life is that he wants to be just like him. Aldis challenges Storm to a six-man tag match, telling the National champion that he can bring any two men he wants. Aldis says that if his team wins, Cabana gets a rematch for the National title. Storm responds: “If my team wins…I get at a shot at that.” (Pointing to the world’s title). Both men agree ending the segment.
Footage of Aldis accidentally clotheslining Kamille, and the ongoing controversy between Aldis and commentator Joe Galli. Galli has attempted several times to ask Kamille about how she feels, but she’s chosen not to speak.
After a quick break, Trevor Murdoch gets interviewed. Murdoch claims that he’s had to work for everything he’s got in this business. “I’m here for a contract. I’m here to work for the NWA.” Murdoch explains how he arranged a matchup with Jocephus, telling management not to suspend Jocephus for throwing powder in Colt Cabana’s face, but instead putting them against each other. This brings out Jocephus who jabs back at Murdoch, then pushes Murdoch into the ring post. This bout is officially underway.

Jocephus continues to work over Murdoch after the sneak attack. Murdoch shakes it off, then drops Jocephus with a short-armed lariat. He mounts Jocephus in the corner for a ten-punch but Jocephus dumps Murdoch into the ropes. Jocephus goes to throw powder at Murdoch…Murdoch punts it into Jocephus’ face! Middle-rope bulldog. It’s over!
