SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Revival def. Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins (Non-Title)
Yes, the SmackDown Tag Team Champions were on Main Event this week. In fact, I don't remember the last time they were actually on WWE TV. They rekindled their rivalry with Ryder and Hawkins here and produced the same match they always do. That isn't to say it was bad by any means (it had a nice pace), but it wasn't anything overly special, either. I've said it a million times, but The Revival deserve better.
Cedric Alexander def. Cesaro
I liked how Byron Saxton brought up on commentary that Cesaro stalled Alexander's momentum on Raw when he first moved there back in April by beating him. It added meaning to a match that otherwise would have meant nothing. They've always had quality chemistry together, but I can see these guys go at it only so many times. If nothing else, at least the action was entertaining and Alexander won as he should have. I really hope Alexander's push isn't over, while Cesaro continues to be wasted.
There was a bit more "star power" on this edition of Main Event than usual, but not by much. We haven't seen either of these matches in a few months, yet I still feel like I've seen them a million times before. On the bright side, they were well wrestled and I enjoyed them both, but it was also sad to see The Revival and Alexander return to Main Event after receiving renewed pushes on Raw and SmackDown. Neither bout is worth seeking out, and the Raw replays were nothing special. I'm curious to see if WWE will do anything different with Main Event after the Draft is over. I assume not, but a man can dream.
