Cedric Alexander def. EC3
It's worth noting that EC3 is now coming out like he couldn't care less, and while I realize that's part of his current gimmick seeing as how he can't win a match to save his life, I'm almost positive that reflects how he feels about his current position in the company. These two have had a handful matches on Main Event in recent week and their chemistry continues to get better and better. Alexander shined far more than EC3 did and took a majority of the offense of this matchup, but EC3 was held his own as always. I really, really wish we'd see these guys on Raw more often.
Raw Tag Team Champions Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins def. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (Non-title)
If you forgot Raw even had tag team champions, I wouldn't blame you whatsoever. Ryder and Hawkins haven't been on Raw in weeks, and neither has most of the division outside of The Revival and The Usos. I feel bad for them because I liked their title win at WrestleMania, but they have done nothing of note since. At any rate, they had a good match with The Good Brothers here and scored a nice non-title win. It also couldn't be more apparent that Anderson and Gallows want out of their contracts.
Main Event continues to suck as a SmackDown Live/Raw recap show, since there are fewer and fewer highlights of those programs by the week. I applaud the talent for their effort in these matches, but they're rarely anything out of the ordinary. This stupid Wild Card Rule doesn't help, because a lot of Raw's midcard Superstars are being bumped from the show and are relegated to Main Event. This was a perfectly fine episode of Main Event but, as always, nothing you need to see.
