WWE Main Event results: Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins reunite

The Big Takeaway: Dana Brooke grabbed a rare solo win against Alicia Fox and Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins made their first tag team appearance together in nearly 10 years.


Dana Brooke defeated Alicia Fox (5:20)

Its sometimes easy to forget that Alicia Fox is the longest tenured female performer on the Raw roster -- and yet she’s only 31. Having been signed in 2006 and debuting in 2008, she’s been doing this for a very long time -- and yet there’s still no spot for her on this weekend’s Survivor Series card.

In Brooke’s case, you’d have to argue that she has really struggled since Titus Worldwide was disbanded. This was her first solo win since January and she pretty much stole it here in a match that felt like a long five minutes. 

They were supposed to trade small packages at the finish, after Fox rolled Brooke into one, but instead of Brooke rolling her over into her own, she essentially just covered her. It was an underwhelming finish, but Brooke showed her delight at finally getting a win.

Apollo Crews & Tyler Breeze defeated Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder (6:02)

For those still following along, Hawkins is still on his losing streak that began back in November of 2016. He is currently 0-236. He and Ryder are now producing their own YouTube content for WWE -- Figure It Out – where they hunt down vintage action figures.

Ryder and Hawkins' reunion as a tag team wasn’t quite met with the approval that you might expect. Given that this was their first tag match together since late 2008, its significance may well have been lost on some. Whatever anyone says, these are two men who have been around the block, fighting the mad and the bad and are good enough to still be filling a main roster spot.

Ryder and Hawkins took a lot of the match, were slick and smooth, and as a match it was perfectly good. It led to a finish where Hawkins was sent outside after he and Ryder looked to have Crews beaten. Ryder sent Breeze outside too but then got caught by Crews: first with a Gorilla press drop and then with the standing moonsault for the win.
