24/7 Champion Dana Brooke def. Fallon Henley (Non-Title)
During her (awful) pre-taped promo, Brooke mentioned she missed singles competition and issued an open challenge to anyone in the WWE Universe, which was answered by Henley. She's been the manager of Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen this year on NXT and recently faced off with NXT Women's Champion Mandy Rose in non-title action. She's been impressive but is far from ready for a main roster call-up. Brooke wasn't the best opponent for her considering how abysmal she is, but they wound up having a fairly average outing.
Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen def. R-Truth and Shelton Benjamin
With Henley making her Main Event debut, it only made sense for Briggs and Jensen to be in action as well. Benjamin and Mustafa Ali did the "unwilling partners" bit two weeks ago, so although it was more of the same from Benjamin and Truth, they were an entertaining duo and played off each other well. Briggs and Jensen haven't been my favorite team in NXT as very little of what they've done has stood out as special, but this was solid stuff. Like Henley, they would benefit from more time in NXT (not that I think they'd be successful on the main roster, anyway).
There was a time at the beginning of the year where we were getting NXT stars on Main Event almost every week. All of them ended up getting moved to either Raw or SmackDown, so hopefully that's not the case with Briggs, Jensen and Henley. It's way too early for them, but they did perfectly fine on this show and Main Event always benefits from having fresh faces in the mix. The matches were basic, but I continue to appreciate that we're getting more promos and backstage segments on this show to make it more worthwhile.
