Bo Dallas def. Sin Cara
This was a pretty basic matchup for the most part with Dallas on offense, Cara making a comeback, and Dallas ultimately scoring the victory. It wasn't a good match, it wasn't a bad match (and no, it wasn't THE match), it was just kind of there. Par for the course is what this contest was, essentially. Cara continues to be punished presumably for his fight backstage with Chris Jericho a few weeks ago while the serious side of Dallas doesn't do much for me. I appreciate him changing up the character, but I believe he's damaged goods by this point.
The Shining Stars def. Curtis Axel and Darren Young
It was kind of cool for Tom Phillips to point out on commentary at the start of the matchup that Axel and Young were once members of The Nexus (just not at the same time). As an avid fan of The Nexus, I apppreciated him acknowleding that. This match was a bit better than Dallas vs. Cara if only because it was something different. Axel and Young are an interesting tandem, but I doubt it will be permanent. The Shining Stars bore me to tears, but I didn't hate that they won here given they're an actual tag team.
In case you haven't heard, after almost eight years, WWE Superstars is finally no more, so Main Event will be taped in its place before Raw. As a result, the show will feature the undercard of Raw and not SmackDown Live, which is disappointing because Main Event was always better than Raw because it has a more exciting undercard. This was a decent show with two well-wrestled albeit fairly forgettable matches, and I assume that will be the case going forward.
