Ricochet def. Eric Young
Yes, Ricochet has already been relegated to working Main Event after losing to Brock Lesnar in a matter of minutes at Super ShowDown and failing to beat Riddick Moss for the 24/7 Championship on last week's Raw. The burial has indeed begun. In all seriousness, this was a solid, well-wrestled match. Young can always be counted on for a quality contest and Ricochet is an excellent athlete in his own right. If Ricochet isn't in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania, I'll be shocked.
Humberto Carrillo def. Shelton Benjamin
Carrillo is coming off a loss to United States Champion Andrade at Elimination Chamber, but I assume he'll still be a part of the rumored United States Championship Fatal 4-Way at WrestleMania with Andrade, Rey Mysterio and Angel Garza despite losing a lot lately. As for this outing, it was entertaining. Benjamin has been busting his butt on Main Event for a while now and put in a great performance before falling to Carrillo as he should have.
If nothing else, this edition of Main Event featured more star power than usual. And no, by "star power" I'm not referring to Randy Orton or Kevin Owens but rather some notable names from Raw's midcard in Ricochet and Carrillo, who aren't regulars on Main Event (at least as of now). Both of their matches were enjoyable for what they were, and considering Raw featured its fair share of highlights on Monday night, I'd chalk this up to being an above-average show by Main Event standards.
