Chad Gable def. Mike Kanellis
Kanellis matches are far and few between in WWE these days, even on Main Event, but he really should be commended for getting into excellent shape over the last year. He had a good showing here, but this was largely a showcase for Gable. The guy can go and I really wish he had more of a chance to shine on Raw instead of losing to Jinder Mahal every other week. He is so much better than the company gets him credit for.
Bobby Roode and Breezango def. Curt Hawkins and The Ascension
It goes without saying, but Roode working Main Event with the likes of Breezango, Ascension and Hawkins is not a great sign for his future whatsoever. Didn't he recently compete in the final match on the Money in the Bank card, and now this? Anyway, this was fun while it lasted and featured some entertaining antics. It felt like a glorified house show much, sure, but at least the audience enjoyed it.
Main Event delivering two fresh matchups (as opposed to the same old tired matches we've seen time after time) is always appreciated, yet these two aren't exactly must-see. Gable scoring a victory was cool, though, and the crowd was fairly lively for both bouts. Meanwhile, the Raw and SmackDown Live replays from this past week were decent, making this an average edition of Main Event on the whole.
