WWE Main Event results: Dorado & Metalik vs. Daivari & Gulak

The Big Takeaway: Curt Hawkins lost again, this week to Kalisto while Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik beat Ariya Daivari & Drew Gulak in a solid main event.

**********

Kalisto defeated Curt Hawkins (4:27)

Here’s one for you: since he returned to the company in September of last year after the brand split, Curt Hawkins has put over countless people in around 113 matches and he has only had one televised win. He defeated Apollo Crews on the night of his return on SmackDown and since then has been on quite the losing streak. It also means, of course, that he has never won a match on Main Event.

Here, he beats down Kalisto early on, mocking Kalisto. It catches up with him and he is booted in the face and tossed outside. Kalisto teases the suicide dive, making Hawkins look like a wimp in the process. Kalisto goes up top but Hawkins sweeps out his leg and slaps on a read chin lock.

Hawkins nails him with a spinebuster, confidently counting the pin to the crowd, but Kalisto kicks out at 2 7/8ths. Hawkins tries a split leg moonsault, but Kalisto rolls out of the way. From here, Kalisto gets the heat, spinning around the ring and finally planting Hawkins with the Salida del Sol for the win.

Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik defeated Ariya Daivari & Drew Gulak (4:50)

Daivari and Dorado start off together and Dorado quickly tags in Metalik so that they can double team Daivari. Dorado launches Metalik over his head in a leapfrog so that he can plant Daivari with a drop kick. Daivari rolls out of the pin attempt and tags in Gulak.

Gulak tries to slow things down with his no-nonsense style but Metalik cannot be contained for long. He whips Gulak across the ring with a springboard arm drag and then does a rope walk missile drop kick. Gulak kicks out of the cover at two and rolls outside for a regroup with Daivari as we head to a break.

Dorado hurricanranas Gulak as we return and then comes off the top rope with a clothesline. Gulak again survives the cover, kicking out at two. He then nails Metalik off the apron and after a cheap shot on Dorado locks in an inverted Sharp Shooter on Dorado. Dorado looks done for but Metalik steams back in and drop kicks Gulak in the back.

The finish is aesthetically very pleasing: Dorado does a double springboard stunner on both Daivari and Gulak. Dorado and Metalik both go up to the same top turnbuckle and Metalik swoops down onto Daivari outside with a moonsault while Dorado hits a shooting star press on Gulak for the win.
