Jack Swagger def. Adam Rose
This was a pretty standard match from Swagger and Rose and no different than any of their past encounters. With Swagger in the midst of another mini-push in his apparent program with Alberto Del Rio, it was obvious that he would win here, as he should have. My only complaint was that there was zero follow-up from what we saw last week in his match with Fandango where The Bunny returned. It wasn't even alluded to! I know WWE doesn't care about Main Event or Superstars, but for them to not even mention it was slightly disappointing.
Damien Sandow def. Heath Slater
At long last, Sandow has returned! And it looks like he's reverting back to his "Intellectual Savior of the Masses" gimmick. I don't know how well it will work as a babyface, but hey, it's better than nothing! Personally, I always enjoyed it and I'm glad WWE is giving him another chance to shine. Now, the next step is getting him back on Raw with this character, as he hasn't been featured on the flagship show in over six months.
Sasha Banks def. Becky Lynch
I was just thinking the other day how smart it was by WWE to keep Banks separate from Charlotte and Lynch in singles matches until it means something... and then they give Banks vs. Lynch away on Main Event. They worked a very well-wrestled match, but anyone who has seen their match from NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable in May knows that they didn't even scratch the surface here and that they're capable of so much more. Again, this was a good match, but it was almost underwhelming in a way knowing what they can really do with storyline support and better build.
This was one of the more enjoyable editions of Main Event in recent weeks. Swagger vs. Rose, albeit nothing special, was fine for what it was, Sandow finally resurfaced after all these months, and the women's match marked the first time we've seen Banks vs. Lynch on the main roster, so it was a noteworthy and enjoyable hour on the whole.
