Eddie Edwards Saved Matt Cardona From Impact World Champion Moose and W. Morrissey
This was a pretty basic segment, but seeing as how it was designed to build toward the tag team match in the main event, it accomplished what it needed to. Everyone played their roles well and Moose and Cardona cut good promos. I don't love it when they use insider terminology on TV, but I did get a chuckle out of Moose calling Matt "Mid-Cardona," that was clever. I was hoping we'd see the last of Moose vs. Edwards at Turning Point, but it was logical for Edwards to still want revenge after he was screwed by Moose and Morrissey.
NXT UK Women's Champion Meiko Satomura def. Xia Brookside
I honestly don't remember this match being made official last week. Although Brookside has lost a lot lately, the story was that her father Robbie Brookside helped her get this title opportunity. The match was good for what it was, but the outcome was never in doubt, and it was clear that Brookside wasn't on Satomura's level. Post-match, Blair Davenport confronted Emilia McKenzie backstage and they'll be facing off next week, so Davenport is clearly getting closer to challenging Satomura for the title.
Reggie def. R-Truth
These two have spent the better part of the past few months chasing each other for the 24/7 Championship, but I believe this was the first formal match they've had against each other. They may have faced off on Raw once, but it definitely wasn't as long as this was. Unfortunately, this wasn't very good and the crowd didn't care for most of it. Truth talked to himself a few times and reluctantly slapped Reggie's hand afterward, but it was hard to tell whether that was supposed to indicate a heel turn or if it's just his current character since we haven't really seen him wrestle this year. They should have done something different for the finish because that powerbomb from Reggie was pretty bad.
Bryan Danielson def. Alan "5" Angels
Angels is an Atlanta native and has impressed in singles competition time and time again, including against Kenny Omega when he was still the AEW World Champion right before Full Gear. There was no doubt he was losing here, but at least he got to score some more offense than the other Dark Order guys. This was a fun little sprint and the post-match angle was well done. Danielson vs. Adam Page for the AEW World Championship will happen at Winter Is Coming in two weeks.
