Impact X-Division Champion Trey Miguel def. Mike Jackson
Yes, it was completely ridiculous for Jackson to be challenging for the X-Division Championship (and for him to be scoring as much offense as he did), but this was meant to be fun and the crowd was into the action. It worked perfectly with Miguel's new "disrespectful punk" gimmick and Jackson was impressive as always. The post-match angle indicated Miguel's feud with Decay's Crazzy Steve and Black Taurus isn't over yet.
Sam Adonis def. Johnny Patch
Cesar Duran announced Adonis as the newest addition to the MLW roster. For those unaware, Adonis is the real-life brother of WWE commentator Corey Graves. I've seen him work on a few independent shows and he's also been featured in the NWA in recent years as well as in AAA. He feels like a good fit for MLW and I thought this was a solid debut for him. This was a straightforward squash and exactly what it needed to be.
Bronson Reed def. Akira Tozawa
This was a rematch from last week's Raw, where Reed squashed Tozawa in his in-ring debut on Raw. I haven't been happy with the slow approach WWE has taken to Reed's push as I don't think he'll get over without appearing consistently on the show, but this was a fine way to keep whatever momentum he has going. He and Tozawa work well together, and aside from a brief blurry of offense from Tozawa, this was all about establishing Reed's dominance.
Jericho Appreciation Society (Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara) def. Action Andretti and Ricky Starks
Jericho Appreciation Society have lost every match they've had so far against Andretti and Starks, so I was fine with them winning here due to outside interference from Daniel Garcia. Specifically, I'm glad it was Andretti who was pinned and not Starks. This was a well-worked match with solid showings from all involved. I'm curious what the ultimate endgame of this angle is going to be. I assume it's Starks vs. Jericho II, hopefully with Starks winning clean again.
