Tyler Breeze def. Jey Uso
We saw this exact same match on last week's edition of Main Event, and for the sake of switching things up, I would have rather seen Jey go up against Fandango. To answer my own question from last week, Jimmy Uso is apparently injured, so they're thankfully not breaking up as I initially feared. My biggest gripe of their last encounter was that Jey doesn't interest me all that much as a singles competitor, so I liked how this match was instead kept short and sweet with Breeze scoring the victory once again. Be gone, 50/50 booking!
The Hype Bros def. The Ascension
It didn't surprise me whatsoever that this match was mostly Hype Bros, but what did surprise me was that Mojo Rawley had more in-ring time than Zack Ryder. Then again, that might have been for the better because while the tag team helps mask Rawley's weaknesses, he won't ever improve in the ring unless he's wrestling more. The crowd responded fairly favorably to Rawley and his "He ain't hyped line!", so it's good he's gradually getting over with the main roster audience.
This wasn't much different than last week's episode which also featured Jey Uso vs. Breeze and a Hype Bros match. Here's hoping that won't be the case every week because it will get old extremely quickly if it hasn't already. The long Raw recaps fill the rest of the hour, which makes zero sense since this is SmackDown's show, but similar to Superstars, it's best to avoid all that by skipping over them and watching only the matches.
