Alicia Fox def. Dana Brooke
Fox has seemingly been a heel (or possibly a very unlikable face) during her recent love triangle with Cedric Alexander and Noam Dar, while Brooke is an established heel as well. Thus, who was the crowd supposed to cheer for? I honestly forgot Brooke was on the roster until this match because she hasn't wrestled on Raw in ages. It was a fairly subpar match with nothing special about it, and the only good thing I can say is that it was over relatively quickly. Fox's finisher still looks as awful as it did years ago. Why not just adopt a new signature move?
Epico def. Darren Young
Young has been facing off against The Shining Stars in tag team action on Main Event in recent weeks, so from a storyline standpoint, this match made sense. Unfortunately, it wasn't much of a match as it was only mere minutes into it that Young suffered a serious injury. It isn't as obvious the first time, but once you watch the replay, it's cringe-worthy to see his elbow bend in a way it shouldn't. Not only do I feel for him, but Bob Backlund now has to sit on the sidelines as well. Here's hoping he's healthy soon.
Between a very forgettable women's match and a match that featured a freak injury, you can't get a more missable edition of Main Event than this. That isn't to say the show is normally worth watching because I personally preferred the program when the stars of SmackDown Live wrestled on it, but this episode in particular was below-average even by Main Event standards. Don't waste your time checking it out and instead hold out hope next week's edition is better.
