Ricochet def. Gran Metalik
For what it's worth, Metalik and Lince Dorado came out to Metalik's old entrance music here now that they're separated from Kalisto. Main Event is exactly where I expected them to end up upon getting drafted to Raw last week, but hey, I'm not going to complain about getting a good match from Metalik and Ricochet. They worked a fun pace, got to show off their skills a bit, and made the most of the time they had. I was hoping Ricochet would get more a push following his (disqualification) win over Cedric Alexander on Raw last week, but him being relegated to Main Event this week doesn't give me a lot of faith.
Angel Garza def. Humberto Carrillo
It was the clash of the cousins here, so obviously their chemistry was great. They've had their fair share of matches against each other on 205 Live and on Raw in the last year, so while I know they can do better than this, it was still a quality contest that went longer than I thought it would (and I say that as a positive thing). Both of these guys are super talented and I was happy they had a chance to do their thing on this show. Garza's potential is limitless (with all due respect to Keith Lee).
I figured the Draft would give us some fresh matches on Main Event (if only for a little while) and that was exactly what happened here. We got Ricochet vs. Metalik for the first time ever and it was an enjoyable outing. Additionally, we've seen Carrillo vs. Garza a handful of times before, but they always work well together and they gave us another entertaining chapter in their rivalry here. Pointless replays aside, this was an above-average show by Main Event standards where both bouts more than held my interest.
