Heath Slater def. Dash Wilder
I thought I was watching last week's episode of Main Event when this first started considering this is the third time they have faced off one-on-one in the last month. While there wasn't anything technically wrong with this match, it was easily the worst of their three encounters to date. The crowd didn't seem to care much, either, and although I realize this is merely Main Event, I wish this "rivalry" was better balanced out with Wilder winning at least once.
Rich Swann and Lince Dorado def. Noam Dar and Tony Nese
This was our obligatory weekly Cruiserweight tag team match on Main Event, but thankfully it featured a few different faces this time. Swann is such an exciting performer to watch that he makes whatever he's involved in enjoyable and this was no exception. All four wrestlers had solid performances and Swann especially shined, making me wish WWE was doing more with him than they are at the moment. I can't even remember when he last appeared on 205 Live.
As noted, we've seen Slater vs. Wilder on three separate occasions by this point, so I wasn't exactly excited to find out they had yet another match on this show. Their bout was totally forgettable, but at least the Cruiserweight tag team match was fun while it lasted. That said, the Raw recaps were nothing to write home about, so I'd suggest skipping this edition of Main Event and hoping for something better next week.
