Gran Metalik def. Tony Nese
I'm curious as to whether Triple H is in full control of the Cruiserweights now, or just 205 Live. By that I mean, is he booking these matches with the Cruiserweights on Main Event and Raw as well? Anyway, while not incredibly lengthy, this was along the lines of what you'd see on 205 Live nowadays. It was very well-wrestled and the crowd was invested in the action more than I expected them to be, so I enjoyed this and I was happy to see Metalik score a victory.
The Revival def. Heath Slater and Rhyno
These two teams have clashed on a number of occasions on Raw over the last few months, but they've largely been squashes, whereas this was an actual competitive contest. It was fairly formulaic for the most part, but it was still a good match where the crowd rallied behind the babyfaces throughout. The Revival won as they should have, but I can't help but think that they deserve in contention for the Raw Tag Team Championship at Elimination Chamber this Sunday and not Apollo and Titus O'Neil (even though that has yet to be confirmed as of this writing).
A lively crowd makes all the difference, and the fans in attendance for this edition of Main Event definitely made it a more entertaining viewing experience than usual. The two matches weren't anything too out of the ordinary, but they were fun for the time they were allotted. The Raw recaps consisted of the six-woman tag team main event from Monday night as well as highlights from that great Gauntlet match, so all in all, this show was above-average by Main Event standards.
