Cedric Alexander def. EC3
This was a really cool clash of styles between two guys who should be doing a lot more on Raw right now. Alexander just arrived on Raw in the Superstar Shake-up, while EC3 has been a mainstay on Main Event for the better part of the past three months. I enjoyed this outing while it lasted and would love to see more from them in the future. EC3 can be great when given the chance to shine and Alexander always brings the best out of his opponents. Between this victory and his win over Cesaro last week, Alexander appears to be a bit of a roll at the moment.
WWE Women's Tag Team Champion Peyton Royce def. Nikki Cross
The IIconics wrestled on last week's episode, so it'll be interesting to see if they become regulars on the show going forward. I surely hope not, because that would mean that neither Raw nor SmackDown Live have plans for them or their titles. Anyway, Royce and Cross worked against each other plenty of times, so it was hardly surprising that this was a good match. It's strange that The IIconics win on a show no one watches but rarely on the main roster brands. By the way, is Cross technically a member of the Raw roster now?
After featuring a whopping three matches last week, Main Event was back to the two-match formula for this week's episode. Both bouts were a nice change from what we usually get on this show and were fun for different reasons. Alexander vs. EC3 was an entertaining little sprint and it was a treat to see Cross back in action against one-half of the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions. The Raw and SmackDown replays were a waste, but I liked the two matchups for what they were.
