T-Bar def. Drew Gulak
T-Bar is obviously incredibly talented if you saw his work as Dominik Dijakovic in NXT and this RETRIBUTION gimmick is such a waste of what he can do. This would have been the perfect opportunity to let him showcase his skills against an equally excellent opponent in Gulak, but I guess I should have expected it would be a glorified squash with Gulak being relegated to the 24/7 Championship level for the last four months. There really wasn't a ton to this for as long as it lasted.
Jaxson Ryker def. Humberto Carrillo
It looks like WWE has already given up on the pairing of Elias and Ryker if their recent appearances on Main Event have been any indication. I can't say I'm too bothered by that, just because their ceiling for success wasn't very high to begin with. Carrillo carried Ryker to a competent contest here and the clash of styles was actually a plus. This loss all but confirmed that Carrillo isn't escaping undercard purgatory any time soon.
If you thought this would be a skippable show because it featured Jaxson Ryker and T-Bar, you weren't wrong. That isn't to say either match was bad (in fact, Ryker vs. Carrillo actually exceeded my expectations), but there is zero reason to go out of your way to watch either of them. I appreciated that both bouts this week were fresh and the Gauntlet match from Raw at the end may be worth sticking around for if you missed it the first time, but that's about it.
