Heath Slater and Rhyno def. Curt Hawkins and Dash Wilder
I noted last week how I was sick of seeing Wilder face Slater one-on-one (they've had three singles matches on Main Event in the last month), but I actually appreciated them furthering their feud this week through tag team action. Unfortunately, Scott Dawson is still out injured (no word on when he's due back), but he and Hawkins gelled well together as partners and this was a fun matchup for what it was. Obviously, the babyfaces picked up the victory so Hawkins' losing streak could continue. By the way, is there a reason why Rhyno isn't using the Gore anymore as his finisher?
Akira Tozawa def. Tony Nese
The Cruiserweights have competed in tag team matches more often than not lately, so it was refreshing to get a singles match from them for a change. Despite being a talented wrestler, Nese does absolutely nothing for me, but at least he can be counted on for a quality contest and he had nice chemistry with Tozawa (who I always find to be a treat to watch) here. Of course, it wasn't nearly as exciting as it could have been considering what both men are truly capable of, but for a match on Main Event, I enjoyed this.
The two biggest highlights from this week's Raw, which were The Shield reuniting and the WWE Cruiserweight Championship main event, were replayed on this show, so it's worth watching for those alone. In all seriousness, this was an entertaining edition of Main Event featuring two matches that held my interest. The tag team match actually had some storyline consistency (gasp!) from recent weeks and Tozawa and Nese made the most of the time they were allotted.
