Kalito def. Rhyno
It wasn't until this match that I was reminded by the commentators that Heath Slater pinned The Miz last week on Raw, so where's his Intercontinental Championship match? Speaking of Slater, he wasn't in Rhyno's corner for this matchup, which was weird. In fact, this whole match was weird because it was pitting two babyfaces without any established issues against each other. The match was decent, though, and Kalisto scored the victory as he should have.
Tony Nese def. Gran Metalik
As I've said countless times before, Metalik has basically been an enhancement talent during his time in the Cruiserweight division, which is a shame given how tremendously talented he is. He wasn't able to showcase his skills too much in this match, and the in-ring action never left first gear it seemed. It was fine for what it was albeit largely flat because the crowd couldn't have cared less, despite WWE's best attempt to make Nese a credible heel. Sadly, it might be too late for that.
One thing I complain quite a bit about when it comes to Main Event is how we tend to get the same matches every week, but I should commend WWE for switching it up with two fresh bouts on this episode. However, neither of them were incredibly entertaining, nor were the Raw recaps anything special because the show bored me to tears this past week, so this edition of Main Event isn't worth sitting through.
