Tyler Breeze def. Mojo Rawley
Breeze made a one-off appearance on NXT this week, challenging Ricochet for the NXT North American Championship. Although this was a well-wrestled match for the most part, it was nothing compared to what Breeze and Ricochet produced, so if you really want to see what Prince Pretty is capable of, check that contest out. At any rate, this was a perfectly solid match with a fun final stretch and the right result.
The Lucha House Party def. Curt Hawkins and The Ascension
The Cruiserweights have been off Main Event since the rebranding of 205 Live earlier this year, but I guess we might be seeing more of Lucha House Party on the show again now that they are a part of the Raw tag team division as well. They are a way better trio than The B-Team and Zack Ryder and surprisingly managed to get a decent match out of The Ascension and Hawkins. If it wasn't for them, this would have been a total dud. Their exciting aerial offense made this better than it had any right to be.
If you saw both of these bouts on paper, you would likely have zero interest in tuning in, but they were actually enjoyable on the whole. That isn't to say you should drop whatever you're doing and watch this show, mind you, but I wasn't as bored as I thought I would be. Unfortunately, the same can not be said about the Raw recaps, which continue to be every bit as dull as the original airing of the matches/segments on Monday nights. Skip those at all costs.
