WWE Main Event results: Jack Gallagher vs. Noam DarBy James Cox | @JCoxF4W | Mar 19, 2017 12:29 pm
The Big Takeaway: Curtis Axel grabbed a rare win against Bo Dallas and Jack Gallagher’s fine form continued against Noam Dar.
Curtis Axel defeated Bo Dallas (4:22)
These two have had plenty of matches on Main Event over the last few months. With every week that passes, Dallas' beard gets longer, giving me the sense that they could be readying him for a program alongside his brother after WrestleMania.
They very quickly get into it and start trading falls early on. After dropkicking him out of his boots, Axel gets beaten up by Dallas. He goes straight for his finisher -- the rope-hung whiplash neckbreaker -- but is astonished when Axel is able to kick out at two.
After working his way out of Dallas’ cravat, Axel absorbs the clotheslines and knees from Dallas and is able to get some heat. He snapmares and clotheslines Dallas to the mat and, after escaping a small package on the first attempt, applies the Perfect Plex for the win.
Jack Gallagher defeated Noam Dar (w/ Alicia Fox) (3:33)
After Gallagher and Mustafa Ali teamed up to beat Dar and Tony Nese last week, in what was a super main event, it was good to see these two former European-based cruiserweights get the chance to go one-on-one.
That said, there’s been a disappointing trend of late with these cruiserweight bouts where they have been given less than four minutes, meaning that Main Event is just Raw rehash and two very short matches.
They have a very technical exchange to start. Gallagher works over Dar’s left ankle and applies a modified Achilles lock. Dar then locks in a variety of armbars. Gallagher balances in a headstand on the top rope and fends off Dar’s charges with the threat of kicks and then plants him to send him outside.
After the break, they go back and forth and it looks like it could go either way. Dar is deceptively strong; after a dragon screw leg whip, he slams Gallagher with a fisherman buster. Gallagher kicks out and goes straight for the finish, setting up Dar in the corner for his Shotgun Dropkick.
The win continues Gallagher’s excellent win/loss ratio in the company, which currently stands at 19-5.
