The Creed Brothers def. Angel Garza and Humberto Carrillo in a Tables, Ladders and Scares Match
I'm not a big fan of doing TLC matches without a contract or a title on the line, especially when these teams have hardly been feuding up to this point, but I can't complain too much because this was an awesome opener and they worked wonderfully together. I thought the Creeds might lose now that it appears they're main roster bound permanently, but apparently not. What a week it's been for the Creeds. Hopefully Garza and Carrillo can bounce back because they're a talented team in their own right.
Ricochet Saved Sami Zayn From The Judgment Day and JD McDonagh; NXT North American Champion "Dirty" Dominik Mysterio def. Ricochet
Is McDonagh an official member day of Judgment Day at this point? They're acting as if he is, but it's tough to say (similar to Jimmy Uso in The Bloodline). They set up Zayn vs. Damian Priest for later in the night during the segment that preceded the match, which was solid in itself. Ricochet works well with just about anyone and can absorb the loss. It would've been silly for Mysterio to lose before he defends the NXT North American Championship against Nathan Frazer on Night 2 of NXT Halloween Havoc.
Jay White def. AR Fox
White's a Connecticut native, so he got a good reaction from this crowd. His in-ring style is more befitting of a babyface and that helped him get the fans more into the match as it went along, but it's a shame his heel run with Swerve Strickland was cut short because that was probably his best shot at getting consistent television time. This was an enjoyable opener, though, and it gave White another win before he challenges for the AEW World Championship at Full Gear. MJF attempted to get his belt back afterward but was thwarted by Bullet Club Gold.
Pre-Show: Brandon Day def. Manbun Jesus in an NWA Exodus Pro Heavyweight Championship Tournament Qualifying Match
I'm not familiar with either of these guys, so it didn't matter to me who went over, but I do know that this NWA Exodus Pro Heavyweight Championship Tournament is a part of the NWA's plan to bring back the territories. If I'm not mistaken, talent from this Exodus Pro territory will be featured on Powerrr on occasion and get exposure that way. This was fine albeit brief. Jay Bradley was involved in the post-match angle and Wrecking Ball Legursky was not, so I'm curious if that means The Fixers are no more.
