Angel Garza def. Humberto Carrillo
Garza came out sporting a new haircut and a suit, though of course it was one of those rip-away suits he took off beforehand. He's probably been watching some of Cesaro's matches from 2016. In all seriousness, this was the usual good match from the two cousins. It didn't have nearly as much time as it needed to be special (which I wasn't expecting given that this is Main Event after all), but it was fun for as long as it lasted. Garza has been cutting backstage promos on Raw for weeks. Can we please get him back in the ring on Monday nights?
Peyton Royce def. Nikki Cross
Cross getting interviewed beforehand in the ring by Sarah Schreiber about her recent loss to Alexa Bliss was a pleasant surprise. She was interrupted by Royce and Lacey Evans, who made comments about how maybe Cross and Bliss were never really friends in the first place. Man, they're a worse version of The IIconics, which I didn't think was possible. I'm a fan of both women individually, but there is zero reason for them to be teaming other than WWE not having any plans for either of them. The match that followed between Cross and Royce was way too short to be anything notable and what we got from them wasn't very good. At the very least, it was refreshing to see something different on Main Event than the usual meaningless matches that have no storyline significance whatsoever.
Last week's Main Event was the most "newsworthy" episode in years, at least in terms of how it broke away from the usual formula and featured bigger stars you'd see regularly on Raw. Garza vs. Carrillo was entertaining for what it was albeit more of the same, though the stuff with Cross was somewhat significant despite the subsequent match not delivering. Both bouts on this show should have been given more time, but it was still solid on the whole. I can't complain about getting a segment that mattered for once.
