No Way Jose def. Curt Hawkins
I thought I was watching a rerun of Main Event for a second, just because we saw this exact same match on last week's episode (and a few other times before that). Considering Raw has such a large roster of wrestlers to work with, I'm surprised we continue to see the same matches week after week. On the bright side, Jose and Hawkins work well together and had another nice little outing here with Hawkins eating yet another loss.
Heath Slater and Rhyno def. The Ascension
The Ascension can be bearable in six-man tag team match situations, but otherwise, they're a bore to watch. This was a fairly formulaic matchup that went down pretty much as you'd expect. It wasn't bad by any means and the crowd wasn't completely dead for it, but it lacked life and there was no real reason to care. I'm shocked Slater and Rhyno are still together two years later, but I guess they make for a good undercard act on house shows.
With SummerSlam a few days away, this edition of Main Event was focused on hyping up the pay-per-view through recaps from Raw and SmackDown Live. You're probably better off watching those than this week's two featured matches, which were extremely predictable albeit decent for the time they were given. In other words, there's nothing to see here, so feel free to skip this show.
