WWE Main Event results: Bianca Belair, Moss-Carillo rematch

The Big Takeaways:

  • Bianca Belair was back on Main Event this week, but remained undefeated since being called up to the main roster.
  • Riddick Moss and Humberto Carrillo had a rematch from last week’s show with Moss going over once again.

Bianca Belair defeated Jessi Kamea (4:30)

There had seemed to be hope.

Last week, Belair had some Raw TV time in a tag match with Ruby Riott and, not only that, she won. Yet this week, she was back on Main Event and up against an opponent who isn’t really in the same league.

Kamea made her debut last week in a squash at the hands of Shayna Baszler. This time out, she was outclassed by a performer who is significantly more able at this point in their respective careers. She did get a lot more in against Belair, but is probably not ready for this kind of in-ring action just yet. Her move set appears limited and she was a little off the pace at times during this one.

Belair used this as an exhibition, repeatedly showboating and, at one point, doing squats while she had Kamea up for a scoop slam. In the end, Belair finished her by slamming her face first into the turnbuckle and pinned her after the KOD.

Riddick Moss defeated Humberto Carrillo (6:06)

This was a rematch from last week’s Main Event. It ran a little shorter and unfortunately wasn’t quite as good.

Watching this match made me realize how much improved MVP has become in his role in the announce booth. With no real agenda, other than to be more inclined towards heels, MVP was easily as good as a sports color commentator as you are likely to hear. 

One issue MVP pointed out -- that Carrillo almost immediately righted -- was that Carrillo was trying to wear down Moss when his strength lies in his speed and agility. The best parts of this relatively short bout came when Carrillo quickened his pace and tried something creative.

In the end, the finish was identical to last week with Moss spearing Carrillo into the corner before nailing him with his modified neckbreaker. There is still a fluidity between these two that is intriguing to watch and, if given the opportunity, they will work well together further down the line.

Final Thoughts:

There was nothing special about the show this week.

The stuttering start to Belair’s main roster run may be frustrating, but they are at least protecting her. Although she hasn’t really been tested against a highly rated in-ring performer, she ran her record to 11-0 since her call up with the win. Kamea has a fantastic look, but doesn’t seem to have it quite yet.

Moss would benefit from a manager or a tag partner to work off. He is constantly trash talking to someone on the hard cam side of the ring and it would be better directed elsewhere. I do fear that Carrillo has hit a career roadblock at this point, but at least he is still in his early twenties and time is on his side.
