Angel Garza def. Humberto Carrillo
The commentators mentioned the personal rivalry between these two, but is it really much of a rivalry if Garza wins almost every single time? I'm not saying Carrillo should have won here, but it's pretty predictable at this point. Garza really should be a regular on Raw by now. If nothing else, these two always work well together and this was no exception. They made the most of the time they had and produced an entertaining affair.
Elias and Jaxson Ryker def. Ricochet and Jeff Hardy
It's pretty damn sad that Hardy has been relegated to wrestling on Main Event. It's a waste of his star power and he's so much better than that. Ricochet is, too, but he's not a multi-time world champion like Hardy. On bright side, Hardy and Ricochet made for a fun team here and had a good match with Elias and Ryker that didn't feel as formulaic as most WWE tag team matches. Elias and Ryker winning didn't make much sense considering the babyfaces needed the win more and that Elias and Ryker have been teasing tension lately. There was no sign of that dissension here.
As much as I want Garza, Ricochet and Hardy on Raw in featured roles, their presence on this show undoubtedly added to my enjoyment of it. Main Event is rarely what I would consider a "must-see" show for obvious reasons, but this was one of the better episodes in recent memory with both bouts being a blast. Garza vs. Carrillo was more of the same from them, but it was quality stuff. Meanwhile, the tag team match was pretty good for the time given. Skip over the recaps and replays as always, but these two matches are worth sticking around for.
