Humberto Carrillo def. Shane Thorne
As I've said before, Thorne has been a staple on Main Event for the past month or two and has looked good every time he's been in action. Having an equally talented opponent in Carrillo helped as both guys got to showcase their skills. I just wish they had been given more time. Carrillo winning for a change was encouraging, but he needs more character development on Raw for fans to truly care about him.
Andrade def. Ricochet
Andrade has been in a pretty prominent role on Raw these past few months, so I wouldn't consider this a "demotion" for him. Rather, I thought of it as extra exposure. Ricochet, on the hand, has been a regular on Main Event for a while and is in desperate need of some direction. Andrade vs. Ricochet could be a killer pay-per-view match, but instead, it was randomly thrown out on this show. On the bright side, they worked well together and produced a super fun bout. Andrade and Zelina Vega showed no signs of dissension despite what we've been seeing from them on Raw recently.
The fresh matches are appreciated on Main Event. I like to think WWE is rewarding longtime viewers of the show for having to sit through the brutal Dana Brooke vs. Sarah Logan matches last year. In all seriousness, this was another solid edition of the show with two quality matches. Carrillo vs. Thorne was enjoyable while it lasted and Ricochet and Andrade got to rip it up in the time they were allotted as well.
