Mance Warner def. Mads Krugger in a Tables Match
Has the feud between these two been so personal that a Tables match was necessary? Maybe they have history from when Warner was last in MLW that I'm not aware of. Either way, this was a decent Tables match. I didn't find it overly exciting myself, and it was also on the shorter side, but maybe that was for the best considering they likely would have brawled some more had this lasted longer. Krugger was protected in defeat since he didn't have to be pinned or submitted to lose, so there was that.
Alex Kane def. D3 in a Peach State Prize Fight
This was an open challenge from Kane. I believe D3 has appeared on AEW Dark before as I remember finding his character silly, but he played his role well here in being the dude Kane threw around the ring. Davey Richards attempted to confront Kane but was attacked by Myron Reed. Kane wants his rematch for the MLW National Openweight Championship, so expect that to happen soon.
MLW Women's World Featherweight Champion Taya Valkyrie def. Lady Flammer
It was cool seeing the women get the main event spotlight this week despite me knowing very little about Flammer. This crowd definitely did, though, as they gave her a nice reaction and were into the action. This wasn't given a ton of time, but for a television main event, it was enjoyable and the final few minutes in particular were fun. Valkyrie will bring more credibility to the title with the more defenses like this.
It felt like there was slightly more wrestling than usual this week, but not much since the opening and closing matches were both under 10 minutes and Kane vs. D3 was a short squash. They were solid on the whole, but the best part of the episode was Alexander Hammerstone's promo hyping up his defense of the MLW World Heavyweight Championship in a Last Man Standing match against EJ Nduka on the January 5th edition of Fusion. This was a fairly average show otherwise.
