Dana Brooke def. Alicia Fox
These two had a handful of matches against each other on Main Event earlier this year and I thought we had seen the last of them in the ring together, but apparently not. It's almost comical how bad Brooke is at this point and how little she has improved during her time on the main roster. This match wasn't more than five minutes long, but it felt like it went on forever because of how atrocious it was. The crowd sitting on their hands for the entire contest didn't help matters, either.
Mustafa Ali def. Ariya Daivari
Similar to Brooke and Fox, Ali and Daivari have had their fair share of matches against one another in the past, too, but at least they work well together. This was a nice little match for what it was, and although the audience hardly reacted to anything they did, Ali never ceases to amaze me with what he's capable of in the ring. Daivari can hold his own, but virtually nothing he does interests me and it's already been established that he's an enhancement talent.
I was enjoying the fresh matchups we were getting on Main Event from week-to-week, but this was more of the same with an apathetic crowd to boot. Ali vs. Daivari was a decent match, but it was far from exciting, whereas the women's match was pretty terrible. Throw in how largely uneventful Monday's Raw was and this edition of Main Event should be skipped over, unless you want to watch the John Cena vs. Roman Reigns contract signing back in full (which was indeed excellent).
