NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly def. Diamond Mine (Roderick Strong and Damon Kemp) (Non-Title)
Pretty Deadly received a pretty aggressive push right out of the gate in NXT, but I feel like they've barely been featured over the last month. Rather, the focus has been entirely on the dissension within Diamond Mine heading into In Your House. Strong and Kemp attempted to give Diamond Mine a momentum boost before Saturday's NXT Tag Team Championship match but came up short. This was a very enjoyable opener and Kemp and Strong had quality chemistry as partners. Kemp will greatly benefit from being a part of Diamond Mine (for however much longer it lasts, that is). I'm digging the Diamond Mine story they're telling right now.
ROH Women's World Champion Mercedes Martinez def. Viva Van
This marked Martinez's second defense of the ROH Women's World Championship this week after already beating Mazzerati on Monday's edition of Elevation. Viva Van gave it a commendable effort and was able to score some offense before eating defeat. This was what it needed to be as Martinez racks up another win as champ. I appreciate any excuse to get Bobby Cruise back ring announcing on a major platform, and Caprice Coleman was fun on commentary as well.
Matt Vine def. Eric Jackson
I knew nothing about either guy coming into this contest, though Joe Galli mentioned on commentary that Vine is a standout from Ohio Valley Wrestling. This felt like a match you'd see on NWA USA, but it's cool they got some exposure on Powerrr. To their credit, they worked hard and had a nice little match. Hopefully we'll see more of Vine in the NWA so this match wasn't completely pointless in the long run.
Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair, Becky Lynch and Asuka Brawled; Belair def. Asuka (Non-Title)
Lynch referenced her history with Asuka from two years ago when she practically handed her the Raw Women's Championship and attempted to tell the story that the fans turned her heel (which they didn't) before Asuka came out and cut the same rambling promo we always hear from her. It's not her fault, though. This character of hers is just so damn annoying. The subsequent match between Belair and Asuka was a vast improvement over their original encounter from a few weeks ago, which I realize isn't saying much considering that was only a few minutes long. It was very well wrestled and it was refreshing that we got a clean finish for a change.
