No Way Jose and Zack Ryder def. Mike Kanellis and Mojo Rawley
These four guys have had countless singles matches against each other on Main Event in recent months, so instead of taking the tired route of having them face off one-on-one again, they were thrown into a tag team match together, which I thought was a much better idea. It was also way more fun as a result and it had a good pace to it. Ryder and Jose were a fun pairing as well.
Apollo Crews def. Tyler Breeze
Crews has quietly been picking up victory after victory and building momentum on Main Event in singles competition. As I've said on countless occasions in the past, he's an exceptional athlete and I'm happy to see him getting more opportunities to shine on his own. Even the commentators mentioned the roll he's been on since breaking away from Titus Worldwide. I doubt it will translate to anything on Raw, but a guy can hope. At any rate, this was a very entertaining match while it lasted. Crews and Breeze still have chemistry from their NXT days years ago, so I can't say I was surprised by that.
There really wasn't anything worth re-watching from this week's editions of Raw and SmackDown Live, so feel free to skip right over the replays. However, the two featured Main Event matches made this an enjoyable episode. The tag team match felt fresh because it was a combination of those four we hadn't seen before, and Crews and Breeze made the most of the time they had by contesting a great little matchup.
