Zack Ryder def. Tyler Breeze
It's a shame Breeze means next to nothing at the moment because the crowd might have been more invested in this match had he not already been established as an enhancement talent. He and Ryder worked well together and produced a very fun matchup. I liked how both competitors executed new moves we haven't seen from either of them before, including Ryder's El-bro Drop that he won with. And yes, he won the match. That surprised me, but it shouldn't at this point given Breeze's massive demotion since arriving on the main roster. Good for Ryder, though.
Ryback def. Bo Dallas
Ryback has spent the past two weeks on Raw and Main Event running through every member of The Social Outcasts, so it was only inevitable before he decimated Dallas as well. It was a standard squash match for the most part, but I'm enjoying this aggressive side of Ryback. He can use all the momentum he can get going into this apparent program with Kalisto for the United States Championship, so these dominant wins have been effective in that respect.
Team B.A.D. def. Paige and Natalya
Naomi referred to her pairing with Tamina as "Nao-mina" in their pre-match promo backstage, but I'll continue to refer to them as Team B.A.D. until I officially hear otherwise. Speaking of which, I'm glad Paige acknowledged her past issues with Natalya because from a storyline standpoint, it makes absolutely no makes for them to be teaming. Nevertheless, it was a solid women's tag team match with Naomi shining more than anyone else with her crisp in-ring execution and entertaining antics. That said, I was happy to see her score the victory, though it was weird for Natalya to eat the pinfall loss days before her Divas Championship match against Charlotte at WWE Roadblock.
Although this wasn't a must-see show by any means, it was enjoyable hour of wrestling with a little bit of everything. Ryder vs. Breeze was better than you would expect it to be and is worth a watch, Ryback vs. Dallas was short-lived fun and the women's tag match capped off the evening on a high note, so if you have the time to kill, this edition of Main Event is enjoyable for what it is.
