Channing "Stacks" Lorenzo def. Tank Ledger
I believe this was only the second match Ledger has had on Level Up, and while he's far from ready for TV, he definitely has a presence about him that should take him far in WWE if he can continue to develop his in-ring skills. Lorenzo has been around for a bit, so he was a good person for Ledger to work with. This was a fairly basic bout, but I thought Ledger held his own and had a competent showing.
Thea Hail def. Jakara Jackson
This marked Jackson's Level Up debut. Since this was on the shorter side, it was hard to get a grasp on what she can do, but she didn't embarrass herself, I'll give her that much. Hail has improved enough to the point where she can carry her end of a match, so this was perfectly passable. Jackson's aggression helped her stand out and I'm looking forward to seeing her progression.
Brooks Jensen def. Trick Williams
Williams went at it alone here while Jensen had Josh Briggs in his corner. According to Williams, Carmelo Hayes was on vacation. Could "vacation" be another word for imminent main roster call-up? And if so, is Williams joining him? I'm going to guess not, but to his credit, Williams has gotten a lot better both as a character and on the mic and in the ring over the last year. This was more fun than I thought it would be.
We got our first real look at Ledger in singles action this week in addition to Jackson, and all things considered, I thought they did as well as they could have. Neither of those matches featured anything out of the ordinary, but at least they got the experience and exposure they needed. The main event was the best bout on the show as a result, but I realize that's not saying much. This edition of Level Up was the definition of developmental.
