Bianca Belair def. Ruby Riott
These two have already worked together a handful of times on Main Event, and while they have great chemistry, it's starting to feel like the never-ending Dana Brooke vs. Sarah Logan rivalry from last year (albeit more entertaining). It would mean more if Belair was winning these matches on Raw where people more people could see them. Riott actually resurfaced on Raw this past week and teasing getting the band back together with Liv Morgan (sans Sarah Logan, of course), so it looks like she may be landing a regular role on the show before Belair despite her lengthy losing streak.
Murphy and Austin Theory def. Cedric Alexander and Ricochet
Raw's tag team division needs as much help as it can get at the moment, so why the hell would WWE relegate this match to Main Event instead of airing it on Raw? It was great stuff and an absolute blast from start to finish. Ricochet and Alexander have been underutilized so far, whereas Murphy and Theory work wonderfully as partners. This was a good win for the heels and I'd love for there to be a rematch eventually on Raw.
You probably thought you were watching a rerun when Belair vs. Riott started, but on the bright side, their matches are enjoyable, so I didn't mind seeing it again. Better yet, Murphy and Theory had an awesome outing with Alexander and Ricochet that is worth checking out as well. All in all, this was a quality edition of Main Event with two fun matchups, though the replays from Raw and SmackDown can be skipped over per usual.
