The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

NWA Powerrr Results; Outrage at Jim Cornette’s Racist Comment

Another episode of NWA Powerrr is in the books. This one was unfortunately more memorable for a racist comment from Jim Cornette. First, the results:

  • Nick Aldis def. Trevor Murdoch
  • The Question Mark? versus Ricky Starks ended in a no contest due to Aron Stevens interference
  • Marti Belle & Thunder Rosa def. Ashley Vox & Allisyn Kay
  • Aron Stevens & The Question Mark? def. Ricky Starks & Colt Cabana

The show featured solid in-ring product as usual. It also featured an explicitly racist comment from color commentator Jim Cornette while calling the Nick Aldis-Trevor Murdoch match.

NWA has taken down the airing of Powerrr to correct it, according to NWA Vice-President Dave Lagana. The show airs pre-taped, so it is still inexcusable that a comment like this could make it to air.

Impact Results: New #1 Contender

A big gauntlet match to crown a new Number One Contender for the Impact World Championship. Full results from the show can be found below:

  • Rascalz def. Desi Hit Squad, Reno Scum, & The Deaners
  • Jordynne Grace def. Taya Valkyrie
  • Johnny Swinger def. Buck Gunderson
  • Tessa Blanchard wins a #1 Contenders Gauntlet Match
    • Moose eliminated Daga
    • Rich Swann eliminated Moose
    • Swann eliminated Michael Elgin
    • Rich Swann is eliminated because he cannot continue after an attack from Elgin
    • Tessa Blanchard eliminated Brian Cage

Nikki Cross Re-Signs With WWE

Another WWE Superstar has apparently re-upped with the company. According to SquaredCircleSirens (h/t WrestlingInc), Nikki Cross has re-signed for multiple years with WWE. Cross’ three year contract was set to expire in the coming months, so her re-signing takes a potential lucrative female talent off the market.

NXT & AEW Previews

Wednesday night will continue to be the biggest battleground in the wrestling world. Deciding which show to watch between NXT & AEW Dynamite can be tricky. Here’s what each show has lined up to entice you on Wednesday:

NXT:
  • The Revival versus Undisputed Era
  • Adam Cole versus Dominik Dijakovic in a ladder match to determine WarGames advantage
  • Likely more interference from Raw and SmackDown as WWE heads into Survivor Series
AEW:
  • Private Party versus Santana & Ortiz in a “Battle of the Boroughs”
  • Jon Moxley versus Darby Allin
  • 12-Man Diamond Dozen Battle Royal – the match ends when there are two men remaining, and those two will battle next week to be awarded a special AEW diamond ring
  • A message from “Le Champion” Chris Jericho

Lots of interesting things promised from both brands. Two screens might come in handy.

One for the Road

Remember the 24/7 Championship? This WWE employee became champ yesterday. He lost it back, so does it really matter?
