The Viking Raiders def. Titus O'Neil and No Way Jose
It's worth nothing that for the first time in a long time, Jose didn't come out with this usual conga line. Did WWE finally eliminate it from the budget? In all seriousness, I thought that always held him back (especially since he never did it in NXT), so hopefully that's a permanent move. In other news, I completely forgot Viking Raiders were on the Raw roster until they resurfaced here. They have been gone from WWE TV for over a month now, which is sad considering how much momentum they had when they initially debuted. This was exactly what it needed to be with Viking Raiders going over in decisive fashion.
Natalya def. Sarah Logan
These two were actually on opposite teams in a tag match last week, so there technically was some buildup behind this bout. It's still baffling to me that WWE bothered to break up The Riott Squad if none of them have appeared on WWE TV since the split two months ago. It was cool to see Logan get as much offense over Natalya as she did and have a solid showing in defeat. This was very well-wrestled while it lasted.
As I've said every week for a while now, Raw and SmackDown Live have been devoid of any real highlights for months, so Main Event doesn't even serve its purpose as a recap show anymore because there isn't anything from those two brands worth watching back again. On the bright side, this week's two featured matches were a nice change of pace with Viking Raiders making their Main Event debut and Natalya and Logan working well together, so at least this episode wasn't a complete lost cause.
