Ariya Daivari def. Lince Dorado
Dorado had two pretty good back-to-back bouts with Tony Nese recently, and I was hoping they would give us the rubber match on this show. Daivari was Dorado's opponent instead, but they could always do the rubber time some other time. This was a nice little matchup and Daivari has grown on me during his feud with Jack Gallagher. Dorado is a better athlete, but Daivari is more prominently featured on Raw these days, so it was important he scored the victory.
The Shining Stars def. Darren Young and Bo Dallas
Unfortunately, Braun Strowman was nowhere to be seen to interrupt this match like he did the first time recently on Raw. Young and Dallas apprently formed an alliance after they "bonded" at the sensitivity training sessions, but they don't have the slightest bit of chemistry as a tandem. Meanwhile, The Shining Stars bore me to tears, so it was no surprise the crowd couldn't have cared less about this match. It wasn't terrible but it was hardly anything memorable.
The Cruiserweights continue to be a staple on Main Event, and their matches are far more entertaining than the rest of the undercard on Raw. Austin Aries definitely enhances my enjoyment of the program with his commentary, so it will be a sad day when he eventually steps back in the ring and leaves the booth. As for this episode, the first match was well-wrestled, but don't waste your time watching the tag team match.
