Replays air of last week's Jeff Jarrett shenanigans and before you know it, his music hits and he wants his match with Scott Hall RIGHT NOW BY GOD.
1) Jeff Jarrett vs. Scott Hall (w/ Toby Keith & Jackie Fargo)
This was so much better than it had any right to be. Jarrett was such a good chicken shit heel. Focusing on outsmarting Hall/short cuts and rest hold. They tease the Toby/Jarrett stuff. It's soooo good then they do a stupid ass finish. Toby does a lowblow on Jarrett and he & Hall do a double team move on him and REFEREE SLICK JOHNSON slides back in and counts the pin with Toby standing right there.. alrighty.
Match rating - **1/4

Don West starts things and that already tells me what I’m getting into.
West, Mike Tenay and Ed Ferrara are on commentary. Tonight we crown a new NWA World Champion on the first ever NWA-TNA event. Things have changed and tonight is all about non stop action. They go to the ring where Jeremy Borash brings out former NWA champions. Harley Race and many others. Ricky Steamboat is holding the NWA Title and will present it later. He cuts a promo on how much the title means to him and everyone else in the ring. Jeff Jarret interrupts and I still love his theme music. Jarrett talks his way into being named the #1 entrant in the title gauntlet. Ken Shamrock comes out to talk some shit and get a pop followed by SCOTT HALL. Jarrett promises to win and make Fargo regret the day he made him enter first.

Random Match Review: NJPW Dominion 6.6 - Kazuchika Okada vs. Shingo Takagi - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship Match - June 7th, 2021
Kazuchika Okada vs. Shingo Takagi
June 7th, 2021
When this match was announced, I was excited, but felt indifferent about it at the same time. Shingo getting another title shot? Yay. It’s against Okada.. uh oh.
The backstory here is Will Ospreay was the champion. He defeated Kota Ibushi in Ibushi’s first defense of the newly christened IWGP World Heavyweight Title (the merging of the old belt and the IC belt.) He then defeated Shingo Takagi in his first defense, but he didn’t come out unscathed. An injured Ospreay was forced to relinquish the belt soon after his second five star, highly acclaimed match with a man who has become one of his greatest rivals, Shingo.
