Bayley def. Sonya Deville
I was actually surprised to see this match relegated to Main Event, if only because none of these girls ever appear on the program, but it was a nice get for Main Event since Raw was too stacked with other stuff this week. The match was actually solid with Bayley carrying Deville through most of it, though Deville held her own. Bayley is basically a glorified enhancement talent at this point, so I don't know how smart it was to have her beat Deville coming off Deville's recent clean win versus Sasha Banks.
Gran Metalik, Kalisto and Lince Dorado def. TJP, Gentleman Jack Gallagher and Ariya Daivari
I've really been digging the trio of Metalik, Kalisto and Dorado lately. Sure, they were probably put together because they're all luchadors, but their similar styles in the ring have led to them having great chemistry together. This was a fun little sprint, even if it didn't last long. Metalik pinned TJP to further tell the story of his recent losing ways, but this was taped before he advanced in the WWE Cruiserweight Championship tournament on the latest 205 Live.
As noted, I was stunned to see Bayley and Absolution show up on Main Event, so their presence on the program was a refreshing change of pace from the likes of Curt Hawkins, Goldust and Titus Worldwide. Their match was entertaining for what it was, and the subsequent Cruiserweight tag team match was also enjoyable. All in all, I'd certainly say (while far from must-see) this was an above-average show by Main Event standards.
