Zack Ryder def. Mojo Rawley
The only thing that intrigued me about this match was how the commentators mentioned Ryder's win-less record against Rawley. In the end, Ryder was finally able to score the victory over his former tag team partner, which was interesting because Rawley lost last week as well after going undefeated for a while. Unfortunately, if you've seen one Ryder vs. Rawley matchup, you've seen them all, so this was painfully bland.
The Revival def. Heath Slater and Rhyno
I'm still disappointed that The Revival had real momentum coming off their strong showing versus Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre on Raw two weeks ago, yet WWE followed up on it by having them lose to The B-Team in a matter of minutes. What a criminal waste of talent. At any rate, I feared this would be fairly formulaic simply because these two tandems have faced off on countless occasions in the past, but it turned into a really nice matchup down the stretch and the final few minutes were fun.
It was a fairly newsworthy week in WWE between all the happenings at Super Show-Down as well on Raw and SmackDown Live, so I thought the recaps on this show did a decent job of highlighting the most important angles and matches from the last seven days. Meanwhile, Ryder vs. Rawley was exactly what you'd expect it to be (just with a slightly surprising finish) and The Revival vs. Slater and Rhyno was enjoyable for what it was, so this was an average edition of Main Event on the whole.
