Jason Jordan def. Curt Hawkins
If it isn't already apparent, the Jason Jordan experiment (as a babyface, anyway) just isn't working. Fans like him based off the reaction he received from the audience here, but probably not as much as officials had hoped when they paired him off with Kurt Angle. Meanwhile, Hawkins never ceases to make his opponents look good, so this was a successful showing for Jordan where he was able to pick up an easy win.
Cedric Alexander def. Tony Nese
I've always enjoyed Alexander and I was happy to see him shine in singles action against a talented opponent in Nese. They worked well against each other and produced a nice little match with the crowd gradually getting more and more behind Alexander as the bout progressed. He's one of the few Cruiserweights I could see thriving outside of 205 Live, so here's hoping he either captures the championship or escapes the division before it's too late (see: Austin Aries and Neville).
I don't believe Jordan has wrestled a match on Main Event since breaking off on his own over the summer, so I appreciated seeing a fresh face on the show for a change. His match with Hawkins was what it needed to be, while Alexander and Nese was a more competitive contest and was entertaining while it lasted. Some Raw recaps are worth watching and others can be skipped over, though this edition of Main Event was a bit better than average on the whole.
