NWA Power delayed to Wednesday, Kay & Belle added to Empower
August 12, 2021
Due to an undisclosed FITE.tv issue, NWA Power will air at 6:05 PM Eastern on Wednesday instead.
Set to air in its usual time slot Tuesday, NWA tweeted that FITE was looking into the reason for the delay. Several hours later, they announced the move with FITE apologizing and saying they would “fix a few things to improve their process.”
Despite the show not airing, NWA went ahead with their post-show anyway, announcing the first team for the NWA Women’s Tag Team Tournament at their August 28th Empower pay-per-view: Allysin Kay and Marti Belle.
Known as The Hex, the two have teamed in both SHIMMER and SHINE. Both have worked for the NWA in the past, but not since 2020.
The winners of the tournament will be crowned the first company’s Women’s Tag Team Champions since the belts were deactivated in 1983.
The all-women’s PPV will see Kamille defend the Women’s title against Leyla Hirsch; Impact Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo against Melina; and the first-ever Invitational Cup gauntlet match.
