Mojo Rawley def. No Way Jose
I lost track of how many times I've seen Rawley and Jose face off on Raw and Main Event over the past year and a half. The sad thing is that their matches are always the same. To their credit, they successfully brought the crowd to life with what they were doing, but while I appreciated their effort, it was painfully mediocre on the whole. I doubt their fortunes will change coming out of the WWE Draft.
The Lucha House Party def. EC3 and Eric Young
Per usual, Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik represented Lucha House Party. Similar to Rawley vs. Jose, I couldn't tell you how many times WWE has run this match on Main Event over the past six months. It's almost comical at this point, yet it's not that funny. It was a nice matchup while it lasted with a fun, frantic pace, but it's incredibly difficult to care about anything thing they do when you know it won't amount to anything. All of these guys have been mainstays on this show for so long that it'd be almost impossible for them to recover.
Main Event's announce team officially consists of Byron Saxton, Dio Madden and Mickie James. It's a fine use of James while she's out injured and it gives Madden a chance to get more seasoned in addition to doing Raw, but this can't be considered anything but a demotion for Saxton (who was previously a color commentator for SmackDown Live). Hey, I guess he's in a better spot than Tom Phillips, who has since been moved to a "producing" role (whatever the hell that means), reportedly. At any rate, this edition of Main Event was forgettable as any other from this year and should absolutely be skipped over. Both bouts have been done to death and are a waste of time to sit through. As I've said before, with this "new era" in WWE in full effect, Main Event should be done away with once and for all sooner rather than later.
