The Big Takeaway: Chelsea Green made her Main Event debut, pinning Sarah Logan in a solid opener. Mojo Rawley saw off No Way Jose at the end of the show to round off a pretty meager first Main Event of 2020.
Chelsea Green defeated Sarah Logan (5:20)
Chelsea Green came out as the heel here to make her Main Event debut. Having made her first appearance on Raw only a few weeks ago, 2020 could be a big year for Green.
Green has worked for most of the major US promotions despite only turning 29 this year. Like Logan, Green came up from NXT where she had mixed success, but they worked well together here.
Logan has certainly improved over the last year, but will still likely find it hard to find a role on the main roster right now. Objectively, it looks more conceivable for Green.
Green used a top rope missile dropkick and wasn’t afraid to trash talk Logan or posture to a crowd that was largely quite indifferent. She finished Logan off with an Unprettier to pick up her first main roster win.
Mojo Rawley defeated No Way Jose (6:36)
After having made a rare Raw appearance in a Christmas street fight against Kevin Owens in December, it was back to Main Event for Mojo Rawley.
Rawley came out and cut a pre-match promo. He buried the crowd, saying that they weren’t smart enough to understand what he meant and said that he was going to embarrass Jose, who he called a "clown."
They did plenty of back and forth. And for a match that has been on Main Event countless times, they did a few new things. Jose’s top rope crossbody looked really good -- even though Rawley needlessly kicked out at one. At one point, he also hit Rawley with a backstabber.
But even with numerous quick camera cuts, the finish looked poor. Rawley had whipped Jose into the corner and then completely missed him with a running forearm. Jose sold it well enough, but overall this was quite sloppy in spots.
