ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham def. Kenny King (Non-Title)
It's been cool seeing Gresham make the rounds recently and I hope an AEW appearance is in his future as well. I'm really looking forward to him against Eddie Edwards at Rebellion and this was a nice warm-up for him before then. King is very talented in his own right, but he's been firmly established as the fall guy for Honor No More so far. This was an enjoyable opener and it was refreshing seeing Gresham competing in something other than a Pure Rules match for a change.
Veer Mahaan def. Cedric Alexander
At long last, Veer is set to re-debut this coming Monday on the post-WrestleMania edition of Raw. We'll see how the crowd takes to him (if at all), but I hope he gets a decent reaction since he's basically become a meme online. Of the many matches he's had on Main Event since late last year, this wasn't one of his better showings, and that's a shame because Alexander is obviously very talented. They didn't mesh very well and the crowd was quiet. It was hurt by the heel vs. heel dynamic, but at least it resulted in another win for Veer.
Microman, Octagon Jr. and Puma King def. Gino Medina, Mini Abismo Negro and Arez
We saw a similar lucha-style match not too long ago on Fusion, so regular viewers may recognize and members some of these faces from that. Micro Man received his own unique introduction because he was easily the most over of the six competitors. I'm fine with MLW using him as an attraction in tag team matches, as the crowd exploded when he won for his team here. This was a fun way to kick off the show even though it lasted a little longer than it probably should have.
Xia Brookside def. Amale
Brookside has been racking up losses for months, so it was about time something finally happened with her heel character. Not only did she pick up a rare win, she also debuted her new ally Eliza Alexander, who interfered at ringside to aid her to victory. The match was decent but nothing special, which is logical if there will be more matches between them. I like how this gives Amale direction as well because she's done well in the babyface role so far.
