NWA: When Our Shadows Fall PPV Predictions/Preview

The NWA has been trying to get back on track since their hot streak was ruined by the COVID pandemic. Back To Attack was a good PPV that showed that they can still utilize their talent to their advantage if they stick with the consistent theme and booking of the show. The overall storyline of many of these matches have been muddled with stop-and-start pushes and pulls or just a severe lack of build, but at the same time, its clear that the talent involved with the show can still put on a great event. Tomorrow should be an awesome event from a true wrestling company, and these are the predictions.

JTG vs. Fred Rosser

JTG has been a surprise signing for NWA and will become a valued member of the roster. Fred Rosser (FKA Darren Young in WWE) is also a relatively new signing for the company but hasn’t quite found his footing in the federation, being lost in the mid-to-low card shuffle but his talent & looks could definitely sky rocket him to the top once they find something for him to bite on. For now, it just seems to make sense to have JTG go over and immediately but his charisma to work.

Prediction: JTG via pinfall

The End (Odinson and Parrow) vs. La Rebelión Amarilla (Mecha Wolf and Bestia 666) vs. Marshe Rockett and Slice Boogie vs. Sal Rinauro and Sam Rudo

The tag-team division in NWA is ramping up, and this should be an awesome showcase of a lost art despite its multi-team stipulation. While The End has arguably been the hottest team and suffered (what appeared to be) a botched finish that stifled their progress, Sal Rinauro’s ascension as a loveable try-hard seems to have the Cinderlla-type story that fits the bill for a PPV that will probably not see another pure baby face win.

Thunder Rosa and Melina vs. Taryn Terrell and Kylie Rae

This is a match that has not really had a lot of build so it is a bit difficult to speculate on who could come out as victorious, but given that Rosa and Melina have been contributing so much to the Women’s division outside of the title picture, it would appear as though as they would get the rub. Terrell still has a lot to prove even though she is a good talent, and Kylie Rae has just made a triumphant return to the independent circuit but it just seems like the right move would be having Rosa and Melina go over.

Non-Title Grudge Match – There Must Be a Winner: Tyrus (w/Austin Idol) vs. Pope

This writer’s mind is boggled by the booking of this match. Overall, Tyrus has been a problematic wrestler on the roster as someone who barely bumps or performs actual wrestling maneuvers but is being pushed as a credible threat. it just seems backwards, and it does not help that his second PPV match is a non-title match against someone who has a title, but yet they are embroiled in a feud in which he explicitly stated that he wants to take the belt off of Pope. Unfortunately, it appears as if Tyrus will get the win. He is paired with Austin Idol and has been booked as a dominant heel on the roster. It should be an interesting bout, because of how Pope will have to craft the wrestling match as the true worker of the feud.

NWA World Tag Team Championship: Aron Stevens and Kratos (c) vs. The War Kings (Crimson and Jax Dane) vs. Strictly Business (Thom Latimer and Chris Adonis)

AS mentioned before, the entire tag team division in the NWA has been shaping up to be one of the best in the world. Kratos and Aron Stevens have held the tag team titles for a little while and it has made Stevens look like a million dollars while giving Kratos a story to latch onto and build his star. The War Kings recently got a seemingly botched win on Powerrr and seem to be headed for big things, but it does not seem to be their time yet. Thom Latimer and Chris Adonis, however, should get the win. This writer is under the impression that Nick Aldis and his crew will remain defiant and continue the worldwide wrestling trend of a truly dominant champion with a great stable around them.

NWA World Women’s Championship: Serena Deeb (c) vs. Kamille

Serena Deeb has been somewhat of a wrestling folk hero over the last few months and it seems like Kamille is finally getting her opportunity to truly pur her name on the map of women’s wrestling. This is probably the toughest match to try to predict, but honestly it feels like Kamille is finally going to get the win. She has been perfectly built up since the beginning of Powerrr/NWA’s resurgence from poppa Billy as the valet for Nick Aldis all the way to a threat to the women’s champion. Deeb is the perfect type of veteran to help elevate Kamille by putting her over in what should be a solid match.

NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship: Nick Aldis (c) vs. Trevor Murdoch

In what should be the match of the night, Nick Aldis will take on Trevor Murdoch as he looks to defend the world-renowned 10 pounds of gold. Now, Trevor Murdoch has been one of the most underrated wrestlers in the entire world for his work in NWA, and how he has showcased how classic wrestling can be entertaining in the modern era. Aldis has made history as the longest reigning NWA Worlds Champion since Dan Severn’s run from 1995 to 1999, and as much as Murdoch has quickly become the heart of the mid-to-high card positions in the fed, it just feels like Aldis will keep it through 2021. Anything can happen, but as mentioned before, this seems like it will be a night for Aldis and his group.
