Lacey Evans def. Dana Brooke
It's amazing how Evans went from being at the forefront of Raw's women's division in her feud with Becky Lynch and headlining Extreme Rules to now being relegated to Main Event duty. Then again, it's probably best that WWE keeps her off TV if they don't have anything for her at the moment. That said, this wasn't that good of a match at all. Brooke always impresses, but she and Evans didn't have the greatest chemistry. The match largely felt like it dragged and the crowd could not have cared less.
Cesaro and EC3 def. Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins
Cesaro and EC3 may sound like an odd pairing on paper, but they've teamed up before in multi-man matches on Main Event, so they have that history. Besides, it's not like either guy is involved in anything of note these days on Raw, so a Cesaro and EC3 as a full-time tandem wouldn't be the worst thing. At any rate, this was a pretty good tag team match while it lasted with the crowd engaged in the action by the end.
Main Event continues to be a completely missable show, but at least what we've been getting on the show in recent weeks (from an in-ring standpoint, anyway) hasn't been too terrible. Personally, I had zero interest in Evans vs. Brooke and thought they had a subpar match, but Cesaro and EC3 vs. Ryder and Hawkins was fun for what it was (and the crowd seemed to think so, too). Meanwhile, the Raw and SmackDown Live highlights were slightly more newsworthy than usual with there being a ton of fallout from SummerSlam as well as a few good matches and moments.
