Sin Cara def. Bo Dallas
Needless to say, Cara vs. Dallas is a match we have seen countless times in the past, so this really wasn't anything new. It wasn't a bad match per se, but it was merely a retread of their past encounters. Both of these guys are beyond directionless at the moment and thus none of their matches interest me in the slightest. There was a small Sin Cara chant from four or five people at one point down the stretch, so he had that going for him, I guess.
Gran Metalik def. Ariya Daivari
This was the match I was actually looking forward to on this show because we haven't seen much of Metalik in WWE outside of the Cruiserweight Classic. He made his 205 Live debut a few weeks back and hasn't been seen since. Maybe the minor botches during his re-debut scared off officials similar to The Bollywood Boyz and how crowds weren't responding to them? At any rate, this was a fun match and Metalik was able to showcase some of his skills, but I wish the matchup had lasted a little longer.
Definitely do not waste your time watching this edition of Main Event in its entirety because Cara vs. Dallas was inconsequential, but check out Metalik vs. Daivari when you can, especially if you have yet to see much of Metalik's work. The guy can go and I hope he is featured more prominently on 205 Live in the future. This was also his premiere appearance on Main Event, so this episode is slightly newsworthy in that respect.
