Cedric Alexander def. Tony Nese
It's interesting that these two faced off considering it looks like they might be headed for a feud with each other based off their interaction on 205 Live this week (though this was taped before that happened). It was a quality contest with both men having strong showings. I appreciate Nese starting to show more signs of personality, but Alexander is the real star in my opinion and should ultimately be the one who beats Neville for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
Apollo Crews def. Kalisto
As a babyface vs. babyface bout, there wasn't any incentive for the fans to cheer one guy over the other, but they weren't sitting on their hands the whole time and it was a good match, nonetheless. Both of these guys are suffering from a lack of direction at the moment (where was Titus O'Neil to support Crews?), but they are excellent athletes at the end of the day and can be counted on for enjoyable matchups such as this one. I liked how the finish came out of nowhere with Crews catching Kalisto in mid-air and hitting him with his finisher.
With Raw being entertaining this week and both of these bouts being fresh, this edition of Main Event gets an easy thumbs up from me. The Cruiserweights produced a fun match in the opener that likely served as a preview of what to expect in their upcoming feud. Meanwhile, Crews and Kalisto gave it their best effort in a nice little match, so this was an above-average episode by Main Event standards in my book.
