Mike Kanellis def. No Way Jose
It's actually ridiculous how many matches these two have had against each other over the last six months on Main Event, but if nothing else, they've built up a nice chemistry as opponents. Granted, this wasn't much more than a basic bout, but at least the crowd wasn't completely quiet for it. Congrats to Kanellis, who hasn't a won a singles match since July 2017 when he beat Sami Zayn (his only other one-on-one win in WWE). How insane is that? By the way, the recent reports that WWE has "given up" on Jose are comical considering there were never any plans to push him on the main roster in the first place.
Tyler Breeze def. Mojo Rawley
Similar to Jose and Kanellis, Breeze and Rawley have also faced off a handful of times in the past, but they too work well together and this was another entertaining encounter from them. Once they picked up the pace in the second half, this turned into a damn good match that the crowd was shockingly into. Breeze has been an enhancement talent for so long that it was nice to see him score a victory for a change.
On paper, I would have assumed that this edition of Main Event would be no different than any other from recent memory, but it ended up exceeding my expectations. No, the recaps from Raw and SmackDown Live weren't terribly newsworthy (aside from the stuff with Shawn Michaels, Triple H, The Undertaker and Kane), but the two matches for this week were enjoyable and had surprising finishes. Throw in a lively crowd in Seattle as well as some video packages hyping up Super Show-Down and you have yourself a perfectly solid show.
