Javier Bernal def. Bryson Montana
This marked Montana's Level Up debut. I know nothing about him personally, but he had a perfectly fine showing in this match. It feels like Bernal loses far more than he wins and he has yet to really stand out, but this was a nice win for him. Nothing about the bout was out of the ordinary, but then again, it was too short to be anything substantial. If nothing else, Montana held his own in there and we'll see how he fares going forward.
The Bloodline Hyped the Tag Team Championship Unification Match
It's a little weird Reigns continues to make appearances on SmackDown if there aren't any plans for him to defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Hell in a Cell next month, but I guess I shouldn't be complaining. He and Paul Heyman did an excellent job of hyping up the night's tag team title unification main event while The Usos stood in the background. That look from Reigns as he hugged The Usos and stared into the camera was money.
House of Black def. Fuego Del Sol and The Dark Order (Evil Uno and Preston "10" Vance)
I would love to know why AEW keeps putting Fuego in the ring with House of Black. He sells well for their offense and whatnot, but we've seen it several times already and I'd be content if he never had another match with them again. As for Dark Order, Uno and Vance have teamed up a time or two recently on the Dark shows and they work well together as partners, but Uno is dead in the water without Stu Grayson. This was essentially an elongated squash, but I don't know that it needed to be as long as it was.
"Speedball" Mike Bailey def. Laredo Kid to Qualify for the Impact X-Division Championship Ultimate X Match at Slammiversary
Bailey has been killing it in IMPACT since arriving earlier this year. He was a natural fit for the Ultimate X match at Slammiversary, but they still managed to work some suspenseful nearfalls into this match. Laredo is a hell of a hand, but this was Bailey's match to win and it was an enjoyable opener (even if it wasn't quite the X-Division thriller I was expecting). By the way, when are we going to get that rematch Bailey was supposed to have with Alex Shelley at Under Siege before it got pulled?
