WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title #1 Contendership Tournament First Round Match
Drew McIntyre & Sheamus vs. The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) (w/Valhalla)

They got good time here and it was just 4 big dudes beating each other up. You could hear the hits on each other and this was just a fun opener. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
LA Knight vs. Brent Jones

Squash

.5 / 5

WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title #1 Contendership Tournament First Round Match
Los Lotharios (Angel & Humberto) vs. Hit Row (Ashante Adonis & Top Dolla) (w/B-Fab)

A quick match that just wasn’t really good. 

.5 / 5

WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title #1 Contendership Tournament First Round Match
Imperium (Giovanni Vinci & Ludwig Kaiser) vs. The Brawling Brutes (Butch & Ridge Holland)

A solid match here. Felt odd not having the major names of either team here but Imperium is so solid as a tag team that I hope we get to see more of them as their own. 

3 / 5

WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title #1 Contendership Tournament First Round Match
Legado del Fantasma (Cruz Del Toro & Joaquin Wilde) (w/Santos Escobar) vs. Maximum Male
Models (ma.ce & man.soor) (w/Maxxine Dupri)

Another quick match that just wasn’t any good. 

.5 / 5
