Jinder Mahal def. Curtis Axel
As if one Mahal match wasn't bad enough this week at Fastlane, we were "treated" to another on Main Event. Thankfully, this matchup wasn't nearly as long as Mahal's outing with Cesaro on Sunday night. He looks absolutely awful and I continue to question why he is kept around. Axel tried his hardest to make the crowd care, but Mahal simply does nothing for me. That said, it didn't surprise me he scored the victory considering he's more of a regular on Raw these days than Axel.
Mustafa Ali and Jack Gallagher def. Noam Dar and Tony Nese
Cruiserweight tag team matches are now a staple of Main Event, apparently. Hey, I'll take these over a throwaway Bo Dallas vs. Sin Cara match any day of the week, and as well-wrestled as they are, they mean next to nothing. Gallagher went from having the match of the night with Neville at Fastlane to competing in just another meaningless tag bout, and that's the issue with the division in a nutshell.
You can always count on the Cruiserweights for quality matches, but no feuds were furthered whatsoever, so it was largely a fun albeit an inconsequential match. As for Mahal vs. Axel, it wasn't a terrible match by any means, but you pretty much know what you're getting with that. Thus, this was an average edition of Main Event on the whole, mostly made notable by the highlights of Raw from Monday night.
