Liv Morgan def. Santana Garrett
I've never been the biggest Liv Morgan fan, but to her credit, she has improved immensely since her NXT days. She fared well against Asuka last week on Raw and I thought she had a solid showing here as well. Garrett is very talented in her own right and I was glad she had a chance to showcase her skills for a change here. She's been signed to NXT since last year, but it remains to be seen whether she'll be pushed at some point or if she'll be forever be slotted in an enhancement role, similar to Deonna Purrazzo. This was a good match with the right winner.
Humberto Carrillo def. Shelton Benjamin
I'm honestly shocked Benjamin wasn't among those released this week. I'm happy he's sticking around, but it's not like he's done anything meaningful on WWE TV in ages. He and Carrillo worked well together and produced a fun match. Benjamin is still a great hand to have and Carrillo is a blast to watch. The issue is that Carrillo hasn't had any proper character development since debuting on the main roster. I really hope he can find some direction soon and won't be relegated to competing only on Main Event going forward.
Along with 205 Live, Main Event has actually benefited from the current situation, oddly enough. The fresh faces from NXT have added some much-needed variety to the program and the matches seem to be better than they were before. It's not like crowds cared about Main Event, so the empty arena environment hasn't made much of a difference. Both of these bouts were well wrestled and the Raw recaps covered all the important stuff from Monday night. However, I would recommend skipping the SmackDown stuff, which has been completely skippable lately.
