Darby Allin def. Anthony Bowens
It feels like Allin has been involved in nothing but random matches since losing to MJF at Full Gear, probably because either AEW doesn't know what to do with him or they're waiting for his next program to kick off. Could it be with Andrade El Idolo, who walked out onto the stage afterward? This was an enjoyable opener from Allin and Bowens, who continues to improve and show signs of potential as a singles star. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't break up The Acclaimed, but he's doing better now than he was when Max Caster was suspended a few months ago. I assume Allin and Sting face The Acclaimed before Allin transitions into a program with Andrade.
Edris Enofe def. Guru Raaj
Enofe beating Von Wagner on NXT recently two weeks after Wagner ended Kyle O'Reilly's NXT career was baffling at the time and even now, but on the bright side, hopefully Enofe can benefit from it and he can actually capitalize on it. That remains to be seen, but he's talented and that was evident in this outing. This was around a five-minute affair and they made the most of the time they had. It served its purpose of keeping Enofe's winning ways going.
T-Bar def. Sal Sergio
It isn't often WWE uses "local athletes" on Main Event, but I assume WWE had no choice this week considering the vast amount of talent that had to miss the Monday's TV taping due to COVID. It's also rare T-Bar is booked to win, so that was nice to see. I don't believe I've ever seen Sal Sergio before, but he sold well for T-Bar's offense. This essentially served as a showcase for T-Bar, though i don't get the feeling WWE intends to build him up for anything significant. Rather, he's just there to lose to more important members of the roster. On the bright side, at least he's actually wrestling weekly unlike his former tag team partner Mace who we haven't seen since the Draft in October.
AAA World Tag Team Champions FTR and The H.F.O. (Matt Hardy and Private Party) def. Christian Cage, Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus) and AEW World Tag Team Champions The Lucha Brothers
The ultimate endgame of this match was to build to Lucha Brothers vs. Jurassic Express for the AEW World Championship. It was teased recently on Rampage and it was eventually announced later in the night for next week's show. They told the story of whether they could coexist and it was as silly as when WWE does it. It was entertaining from an in-ring standpoint and everyone had their time to shine, but AEW really needs to cool it with these multi-man matches because they no longer feel special and haven't in a long time. I don't see the heels benefiting from this win much and I surprised to see Christian take the losing fall given how protected he's been this year.
