Jinder Mahal def. Curtis Axel
I'm sure this match happened only once before a few weeks ago, yet I feel like I've seen it a million times. Axel is a solid enough hand in the ring and Mahal is all right, but together, they are beyond boring. Hell, even alone, they're boring. You might have more fun watching paint dry. Seriously. This was a complete waste of time and I continue to question why Mahal was brought back to begin with.
Jack Gallagher and Gran Metalik def. Noam Dar and Ariya Daivari
I had completely forgotten Metalik was still a part of the Cruiserweight roster until this match. Where the hell has he been lately, along with Tajiri? At any rate, I'm glad he was on offense for a majority of this match because he was really able to showcase his skills and his impressive moveset. It's just a shame the crowd wasn't livelier for the action than they were, but it's hard to blame them when none of these four guys mean anything. That said, this was a good tag team match.
You would think that the always-rowdy Brooklyn crowd would have made this a more enjoyable episode than usual, but that was sadly not the case. That isn't to say the matches were terrible or anything, but rather, they were simply forgettable. Mahal vs. Axel was total throwaway, but the tag team match had its moments if you are interested in checking it out. But whatever you do, don't bother re-watching the Raw recaps from Monday night.
