I was checking out the NWA card for tonight and it looks like a really good show ...
-NWA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles vs. Jeff Jarrett. -NWA World Tag Team Champions Simon Diamond & Johnny Swinger vs. Roadkill & Danny Doring. -X Division Champion Michael Shane vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Chris Sabin. -America's Most Wanted vs. A Mystery Team selected by Glenn Gilberti. -Raven vs. Slash, with James Mitchell. -Kid Kash vs. Sonjay Dutt. -3 Live Kru (Konnan, Ron Killings & BG James) vs. Sonny Siaki, Ekmo & Legend.

I think the Jarrett/Daniels feud was dropped at pretty much the same time they announced the Hogan deal, presumably because they needed to move Jarrett over to a new angle very quickly. Since Hogan is out, though, it wouldn't surprise me to see Jarrett to win the title tonight and then resume the Daniels feud.
look it's sloppy and contrived vs. sloppy and contrived! i couldn't tell if kash was trying to do a diving inverted brainbuster or he forgot how to hook for an emerald frosion...
Dusty postulates and theorizes on JJJ, saying it takes a self-serving SOB to know a self-serving SOB...EEF UUUUU WEEELLL!
Simon and swinger retain, nothing special.
mystery team is the 'naturals' forgot the names but Tenay said something like they returned and they had faced AMW earlier. overbooking, dusty finish, restart, harris gets a diving crossbody to win, usual post-match beatdown with the security bozos getting involved.
oh, did I mention JJJ gets to beat on jimmy hart so he can't spill the beans about 'oh my knee BROTHER!'
paint by the numbers X division/3-way match. let's have a triple suplex variation. let's all dive on another. let's all do the "ha, i let you hit him and then I hit you!" of course Daniels is dead after the cradle shock so Sabin and shane can crisscross he eats the superkick and get pinned.
obviously the AFKASEX are concerned about no russo. AJ says don't interfere, because it's only JJJ not the Undertaker.
dog collar match. usual stuff. Usual vampiro and mitchell beatdown. usual gathering save. usual Raven 'you no come help me i like getting beat up because i'm extreme blah blah blah'
Foregone conclusion-- Stall, grab chair, act psycho. finally they start. a couple little headlock stuff by AJ but Jeff wants to brawl. Other wrestlers are watching in the crowd as if this was important or they don't already know what's happening
sunset flip-> Clash attempt is foiled. fight to outside, AJ nearly overshoots his somersault plancha over the rail onto JJ.
Back in Styles hits the starmaker I think... jarrett busts out the moveset with a crappy super tko. Storm is not seen laughing or crying at it.
figure-4 that submits no one...AJ wants no help. but siaki comes out to get punked by dusty anyway.
here comes the chair as JJ is obviously doing a half-ass Stone Cold circa X-7 attempt. Watts is displeased. Styles puts jj's head through the chair and decides to make like the french revolution. of course JJ gets out. stroke on the chair gets 2. title belt shenanigans, aj gets a rollup for 2 but then eats another shot, JJ throws the belt at watts, 1-2-3.
Before going through the traditional Gordy List questions I want to cover a couple of points. First, the Gordy List has often been used by writers to "make a case" for a candidate who they feel should be in the HOF.
