Curtis Axel def. Bo Dallas
Axel is still struggling to find his footing as a babyface because, well, he hasn't changed as a character at all other than attempting to embrace the audience, nor is he on TV consistently enough for fans to know he's a face now. From an in-ring standpoint, this was a perfectly fine match, but the crowd couldn't have cared less and it's hard to blame them. Expect to see these two take part in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33.
Jack Gallagher def. Noam Dar
Cruiserweight tag team matches have been a staple of Main Event for the past few weeks, so it was nice for them to be back to competing in singles competition. That said, they weren't given nearly enough time and never got out of first gear before going to the finish. As a result, the crowd was never really invested in the action. On the bright side, Gallagher and Dar have been facing off in tag team action on 205 Live lately, so this had some storyline significance.
Both bouts on this week's Main Event were well-wrestled, but the crowd sat on their hands for the most part and therefore killed my enthusiasm for either match. Of the two, the Cruiserweight match was more enjoyable, though I wouldn't recommend checking out the entire episode. The Raw recaps from Monday night are pretty good, but they don't make this show worthwhile.
