24/7 Champion R-Truth Interrupted Elias
You know all those reports you read about Jaxson Ryker being on the chopping block and that the company was waiting to fire him? Well, apparently they aren't true, because if they were, why would they bother to bring him back? Granted, being Elias' bodyguard isn't a prominent role by any means, but it's still something and I wouldn't be surprised to see the act on Raw one of these days. This felt like a test run, even though he didn't do much aside from stand menacingly behind Elias. Truth eventually interrupted Elias' shtick and that was all there was to it. Pretty basic stuff here that felt pointless unless this is building to Elias vs. Truth, which feels like a significant step down following his feud with Jeff Hardy.
Keith Lee def. Angel Garza
Have those Garza vignettes aired on Raw recently? Because I don't remember seeing them, though there was one that went up on WWE's YouTube channel this past week. What's weirder is that WWE would promote that WWE 24 documentary on Lee so heavily and then not even feature him on Raw the next night. Instead, he's relegated to Main Event. How does that make any sense? On the bright side, he and Garza had a very good match in the time they were allotted here. Lee needed the momentum boost and Garza was able to look credible in defeat, so this was a win-win situation for both men.
Main Event has felt much more important since the Thanksgiving episode, at least by Main Event standards. I wouldn't recommend dropping what you're doing to watch the show, but as someone who watches every week to review it, it's become much more bearable. Ryker's return was notable and Lee vs. Garza was enjoyable for what it was, so this edition of Main Event easily gets a thumbs-up from me. As always, the replays of Raw and SmackDown can be skipped over. Few things that happen on WWE TV these days needs to be seen more than once.
