Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali def. Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari
If you were wondering where the Cruiserweights were on Raw this week, well, this was why. Then again, aside from that one tag team match Alexander and Ali had a few weeks back, the Cruiserweight division has largely been absent from the program in recent months, so I can't say I'm surprised they'll be on the WrestleMania 34 Kickoff show. It might end up being for the better because those two may very well steal the show if given the time they deserve. As for this outing, it was a nice little match while it lasted with Alexander and Ali scoring the victory as they should have.
The Revival def. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson
This was a refreshing change of pace from the matches we usually get with The Revival taking on Heath Slater and Rhyno and Titus Worldwide here on Main Event. It was far from being a blockbuster, mind you, but it was a solid match with both teams putting forth a good effort. These are two teams in the Raw tag team division I still somewhat care about, so I enjoyed it for what it was. The Revival continued their winning streak on Main Event, but when will they be pushed prominently on Raw?
I was actually shocked this show wasn't worse considering WWE typically throws together random matches for Main Event and especially so close to WrestleMania. However, the Cruiserweight tag team match actually built toward Alexander vs. Ali for the Cruiserweight Championship at 'Mania, while The Revival and (I assume) Gallows and Anderson will be a part of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on Sunday, so their match served as hype for that to an extent as well. All in all, this edition of Main Event was better than expected.
