The Lucha Dragons def. The Ascension
It's been several months since we last saw these two teams square off, but it still feels like not enough time has passed because all of their matches blend together. At the very least, they work well together, so I can't complain. I continue to hope that The Lucha Dragons will be split up in the upcoming WWE Draft so Kalisto can get back on track as a singles star and won't be held down by Sin Cara.
The Golden Truth def. Breezango
It delighted me to finally hear David Otunga actually acknowledge that FaBreeze is a much more fitting name for the heel duo, as well as how they would likely run into copyright infringement if they went with it. That was pretty much the only thing that stood out to me during this match because it was basically over before it even began, but that might have been for the better since I had virtually no interest in this Money in the Bank rematch, anyway.
The Shining Stars def. Zack Ryder and Jack Swagger
This was The Shining Stars' first appearance since their debut in late May, so I don't think it's a stretch to say that officials have already lost faith in this new act. Similar to when they initially arrived, their pre-match promo failed to elicit any heat whatsoever, and I still struggle to figure out what is worth booing about them to begin with. The match was fine for what it was, but it served as another reminder for me that The Shining Stars have a very short shelf life.
Enzo Amore and Big Cass def. The Dudley Boyz
This was easily the best tag team match on the entire show simply because it isn't something we've seen a million times in the past in addition to how they have very good chemistry together. The Dudley Boyz are exceptional at getting under the skin of fans, and while I realize they haven't been winning many matches since they returned, they're doing what they set to do in putting over the younger talent. Additionally, this was a nice win for Enzo and Cass as they ascend in the tag team ranks.
I really liked the idea of having a tag team-themed edition of Main Event this week because if nothing else, it was something unique and different from what we're used to seeing on this program. The first three matches were serviceable and the main event was entertaining, so the change in format resulted in a better show than usual. It was further proof of how deep of a tag team division WWE has at the moment, even if not every tandem is credible.
