No Way Jose def. Curt Hawkins
Jose is the perfect person for these Main Event shows because he can get a crowd into the action and up on their feet before Raw even starts. He got a good reaction when he made his entrance and this was a nice little outing with Hawkins. Obviously, the outcome was never in doubt, but I enjoyed it while it lasted and Jose needed the victory after eating so many losses recently.
The Revival and Mike Kanellis def. Heath Slater, Rhyno and Chad Gable
Six-man tag team matches are a rarity on Main Event these days, so this was a refreshing change of pace. All six stars have been in action against each other on the program lately, so it made sense and the action was entertaining (albeit formulaic) for the most part. As much as I love Gable, the heels picking up the win was more important as The Revival aim to get back into Raw Tag Team Championship contention. Plus, Kanellis won his first match in almost exactly a year, so congrats to him (even though that's a sad stat).
The fallout from Extreme Rules wasn't the greatest this past week, at least on the Raw side aside from the two Triple Threats, but SmackDown Live was excellent on Tuesday night and thus the recaps aren't as much of a chore to sit through. But if you're just watching back the two featured Main Event matches on this show, neither of them are must-see but they were fun for what they were.
