Akira Tozawa def. Ariya Daivari
It never ceases to amaze me how hot Tozawa was last summer during his feud with Neville over the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, and then how he completely fell off the face of the earth. He's still a lot of fun to watch in the ring, but the crowd sat on their hands for this. I partially blame Daivari, not because he's bad in the ring but rather because he's the ultimate enhancement talent in the Cruiserweight division. Thus, it's hard to care about anything he's involved in, no matter how decent it might be.
Goldust def. Curt Hawkins
We have seen this match a handful of times in recent months, so while it was nothing new, this mostly consisted of comedy that I enjoyed. For example, I got a good chuckle out of Hawkins laying down for Goldust only to reveal he was playing possum (to no avail, of course). I've seen that spot from them before, but it always makes me laugh. This was hardly anything worth going out of your way to see, but for the time it was allotted, it was a nice little matchup.
I thought both bouts from this week's edition of Main Event fell into the same category: there wasn't anything technically wrong with them, but because we've seen them countless times in the past, I can't recommend sitting through them again. It was an easy watch, yet far from mandatory. As for Monday's Raw, it was a solid show on the whole, but the Raw recaps aren't must-see, either.
