In addition to the few holdovers from the Power era, they have announced:

*Tyrus (Brodus Clay)
*Chris Masters
*Jordan Clearwater
*Slice Boogie

So yeah, this is going to be a rough show to get through.

Tyrus is 48, last wrestled in January 2020, and only one other time since he left Impact in January 2018.

Chris Masters is 38, younger than I thought, and has been wrestling reasonably regularly on second-tier indie shows for the past few years. Was he ever any good, though? To my recollection, no.

Crimson was wrestling regularly for OVW until June 2019, after which he pretty much disappeared until last month when he reformed his tag team with former NWA World Heavyweight Champion Jax Dane.

Jordan Clearwater is a regular for CWFH and New Japan Strong.

Slice Boogie (awful name) is a CWFH regular.

They are trying to sell a PPV with a weaker roster than the one used by UWN Prime Time. I hope they have more than this, but surely you would lead with the biggest names to generate interest and sell a PPV. With no build up, why would I buy this when there is too much better wrestling every week for free?

Aron Stevens is a very good mid-card comedy wrestler. Good enough to hold a secondary title, but he's not a contender for the top title.

It's also very telling that the main event is the world champion vs 1/2 of the tag team champions.
