Karl Anderson def. Curt Hawkins
As soon as I heard Anderson and Luke Gallows' entrance music hit at the start of the Main Event taping, I immediately felt bad for them. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Thankfully, they have since moved over to SmackDown Live in the Superstar Shake-up. Here's hoping the change in scenery does wonders for them, though Finn Balor not going to Tuesday nights with them is interesting. At any rate, this was a pretty basic bout where the crowd was solidly behind Anderson and it was decent enough.
Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado def. TJP and Ariya Daivari
As well-wrestled as these matches with the Cruiserweights are on Main Event, I feel like we've seen every possible combination of the Lucha House Party against the meaningless heels of the division. It's beyond obvious the babyfaces are going to win every time, and knowing this, I left for a few minutes during the match to check my phone. I don't think I missed much. What I did see was fine, yet nothing worth going out of your way to see.
I arrived at the Raw taping on Monday night in time to watch the Main Event matches, but I wouldn't have regretted missing them in retrospect. Both bouts were average at best but were marred by predictable outcomes. The mediocre crowd reaction was no different than usual, either. Then again, that is fairly standard for this program. Raw just picked up a slew of Superstars from SmackDown Live in the Superstar Shake-up, so expect to see some fresh faces on Main Event starting next week (hopefully, anyway).
