Humberto Carrillo def. Drew Gulak
These two have worked together plenty of times, both on Main Event and 205 Live, so it was no surprise that this was a quality contest. I've said time and time again how it's a shame that they're being relegated to Main Event and not doing anything of note on Raw at the moment, but at least they're having enjoyable matches on this show. Gulak dominated a majority of the match before Carrillo stole the win, so it was fun while it lasted.
Angel Garza def. Ricochet
I love Hurricane Helms, but the fact he was in the men's Royal Rumble over a guy like Garza is sad. He debuted on Raw almost exactly one year ago but has been kept off the show since the Draft essentially. What the hell ever happened to the vignettes they were airing for him? Nonetheless, this was a strong match from two terrific athletes. Ricochet is creatively damaged at this point, but he can still go in the ring and thus this was a blast. I didn't expect Garza to pick up the win, but I hope this isn't the last time we'll see these two go one-on-one.
Two entertaining matches made this edition of Main Event better than most. It wasn't a shock to see any of these guys on Main Event as all four of them have been regulars in recent months, but they're making the most of it and producing some superb matches. Monday's Raw was a significant improvement this week, so the Raw recaps aren't as skippable as they usually are. This was a thumbs-up episode.
