24/7 Champion Dana Brooke def. Kiana James (Non-Title)
I'm convinced Triple H forgot Brooke was still on the roster and that's why the 24/7 Championship hasn't been deactivated yet. I mean, he's been running WWE Creative for three months now and it hasn't been featured on Raw once, so why is it still a thing? This was another open challenge from Brooke, and James might be the most random NXT name to appear on Main Event yet. She's far from ready for the main roster as she's incredibly inexperienced, so I'm not sure why she was even in this spot. To her credit, she did fine and the match wasn't as awful as I thought it would be, but James attacking Brooke afterward makes me worried a rematch is coming.
Cedric Alexander def. Von Wagner by Disqualification
Von Wagner was featured on Main Event once before in recent weeks and lost that match by disqualification, too. Why bother putting him on Main Event if he's going to lose by disqualification two times in a row? On the bright side, I was happy to see Alexander get a match in his hometown of Charlotte and the crowd was behind him. He carried Von Wagner to a serviceable match, but the non-finish killed any momentum they had.
It's been quite the week for R-Truth, who beat The Miz on Monday's Raw, appeared on Tuesday's NXT and showed up in a backstage segment with Shelton Benjamin on this show. They're still teasing a team, so we'll see where that goes. Nonetheless, this was a slight-below-average edition of Main Event with two mediocre matches. It's cool they're continuing to use talent from NXT to freshen things up and giving them a chance to shine, but I can think of much better people than Von Wagner and James who could be featured instead.
