Lacey Evans def. Dana Brooke
Evans vs. Brooke didn't do a ton for me on paper, but I can appreciate a fresh match on Main Event when most of what we see on this show week after week is the same old stuff. It was also nice to see Evans back in action, as I don't think she has been featured at all on WWE TV since losing in the Extreme Rules main event over two weeks ago. Brooke has been making strides in recent months on Main Event, though I honestly expected this to be worse than it was. They produced a competent content and Evans winning was the right result.
Robert Roode, EC3 and Eric Young def. The Lucha House Party
It's sad to see three former TNA World Heavyweight Champions (who all had potential to go a lot farther than they have on the main roster) relegated to Main Event duty against Lucha House Party. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Lucha House Party on 205 Live, but they've meant nothing since moving to Raw late last year and have largely been mainstays on Main Event. That said, this was a nicely paced albeit brief bout that was fun while it lasted. Lucha House Party were on offence for a majority of the match before falling short to Roode, EC3 and Young as they should have.
Main Event has been such a drag for months (if not years) now that I'll attempt to offer praise whenever I can, so by normal Main Event standards, this was a solid show. Personally, I never watch the replays from Raw and SmackDown Live, but if you're into that type of thing, you might like this episode since both shows were better than usual this week. Plus, Evans vs. Brooke was passable while the six-man tag team match was a treat for what it was. Ultimately, you aren't missing anything at all if you don't watch this show, but hey, I'm just trying to be positive.
