Aleister Black def. Leon Ruff
Ruff has been utilized as an enhancement talent on NXT before and is probably most well known for his work in EVOLVE. Before he and Black even touched, you could hear an alarm going off in the background, which was funny. The match was over within a minute following a brutal Black Mass from Black. I'm all for Black destroying dudes, but was this really worth setting up his the candles in his entrance for, especially if there wasn't anyone in attendance?
Raw Tag Team Champion Angelo Dawkins def. Murphy
Akam accompanied Murphy to ringside. Rezar reportedly suffered an injury during last week's Raw main event and may be out for a while, which may not even matter if WWE ends up having to stop production of their shows soon due to the coronavirus. At any rate, even though this was far from an instant classic, it was a much better than their original encounter on Raw a few weeks ago and had a nice pace to it. Even though he's one-half of the Raw Tag Team Champions, Dawkins going over was slightly surprising, if only because Murphy is the better wrestler of the two.
I'm honestly shocked they taped content for Main Event despite it being filmed in front of an empty arena at the Performance Center. Hardly anyone watches the show, so I don't really see the point. It was something different and I applaud their effort, but needless to say, this episode is entirely skippable. Black vs. Ruff was kept short and sweet while Dawkins vs. Murphy was fun for what it was, yet that doesn't mean this show is worth your time (unless you're just that bored from being home).
