Matt Hardy def. Curt Hawkins
Jeff Hardy's injury really should have opened the door for WWE to start pushing Matt on his own, especially considering how over with the audience he still is, but instead he's been relegated to meaningless matches on Raw and Main Event. It's a shame to say the least, but he did look good in this fun little sprint against Hawkins, who always excels at losing. The crowd was engaged in the action, too, so that helped.
Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows def. Titus O'Neil and Apollo Crews
It isn't often we see O'Neil and Crews work as a tag team, but they would be a welcome addition to Raw's tag team scene at the moment (although I would much rather prefer Crews teaming with Akira Tozawa). This was a decent match while it lasted, but it never seemed to reach that next gear before abruptly ending coming out of the commercial break. Anderson and Gallows desperately need some wins, but Crews needs direction and/or character development just as much.
For the first time in many weeks, we were not given any sort of combination of Heath Slater, Rhyno and Dash Wilder in a match together, so I appreciated WWE switching it up for a change. In fact, both of these bouts were fresh, though I only really enjoyed Hardy vs. Hawkins. The tag team match was fine albeit uneventful. Also, please do skip over the Raw recaps as Monday's show was beyond awful this past week in my opinion.
