Sin Cara def. Jinder Mahal
The Cara character is dead in the water at this point and I couldn't care less about Mahal, so as you could likely assume, this match was nothing of consequence to me. It wasn't terribly wrestled, but I don't at all blame the fans for not being invested in the action. I was slightly surprised to see Mahal lose in his first official back match, to Sin Cara no less, but I guess that goes to show he was simply brought back into the fold to serve as an enhancement talent to the rest of the roster. What a waste.
The Hype Bros def. Breezango
In a matter of three weeks, The Hype Bros have already run through all of the heel tag teams on SmackDown. That's nice and all, but that means we'll be forced to see them engage in rematches from this point forward. Ugh. At any rate, this was a fun little match and Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley continue to gel well as a team. The live crowd wasn't all that into their act here, but hopefully they get more over with the audience once they start to receive more television time on SmackDown.
The two match format for Main Event continues, and despite my belief that the show would become more meaningful week-to-week due to the Brand Split, that has yet to be the case. If anything, Main Event is more meaningless than ever before because the two featured matches are largely forgettable. The tag team match was decent, but aren't Mahal and Cara Raw guys? Why were they on this show? Oh, whatever.
