Rezar def. Curt Hawkins
The commentators noted that Rezar has actually never been beaten in singles competition before, so that was a fun fact I was not previously aware of. Needless to say, that didn't change here, as it would have been dumb for Hawkins' lengthy losing streak to end on Main Event in such an inconsequential match. The crowd came alive for Hawkins' hot comeback down the stretch, but the outcome was never in doubt.
Lucha House Party and Titus O'Neil def. Raw Tag Team Champions The Revival and The Ascension
What a weird mash-up of talent this was. I realize The Revival were left off Raw this week (for whatever reason), but to put them in a random eight-man tag team match with glorified enhancement talent was a questionable call. To make matters worse, this was over before it ever had the chance to get going. The commercial break happened soon after it started, and then it ended a minute or two after they came back from the break. In total, this couldn't have been more than three or four minutes long. In other words, this was total throwaway.
Cherry-pick what you'd like from the SmackDown Live and Raw recaps, because you might be willing to re-watch some segments and matches more than me. Meanwhile, the two featured matchups were completely forgettable. To their bout, Rezar and Hawkins produced a better bout than I originally expected, but it's not worth going out of your way to check out by any means. However, it was way more entertaining than the multi-man tag team affair, which felt like a glorified waste of time.
