WWE Main Event results: Tegan Nox vs. Nikki Cross

June 29, 2023 0 By JohnValbyNation

This past week’s WWE Main Event was taped at the Coliseum Complex in Greensboro, North Carolina, before Monday’s episode of Raw.

Dana Brooke defeated Emma (5:40)

This was a good 50/50 contest in which both worked well. Emma could certainly be working on much higher profile matches, because her in-ring work is strong.

They replayed Brooke being beaten by Rhea Ripley on Raw and suggested that it would be hard for her to come back from such an ugly defeat.

Emma had an inset promo where she wanted to remind us that she is the "real pioneer of the WWE women’s division" and that before there were the Four Horsewomen, the history books say "Emma."

Early on, this featured lots of back and forth as they traded side headlock takedowns and quick pinfall attempts. After what had looked like it would be babyface vs. babyface, Emma turned on Brooke and claimed that she was being disrespected.

There was really no separating the two and in the end, Emma just got caught up in complaining which led to an opportunity for Brooke to steal one.

Emma had nailed Brooke with a basement crossbody in the corner and was moaning to the referee when Brooke jumped up and pinned her with a small package to get the win.

Nikki Cross defeated Tegan Nox (5:27)

This was ok. The crowd was a little dead, but there was solid work on display here with Nox looking more than comfortable working with main roster talent.

The match marked the Welsh-born Nox’s Main Event debut. She has worked a few SmackDown tapings, as well as the 2020 and 2023 Royal Rumble matches on the main roster, but is otherwise no doubt a new face to many.

She got an inset promo here, which was good to see. She said that now that she was on the red brand, she would beat people up and enjoy doing it.

The crowd was quite quiet during this one, but did seem to be behind Cross. There were a few tepid "Let’s go Nikki" chants toward the end that never quite took hold.

Cross gave Nox a lot here as she worked her over methodically without relying on rest holds so the match felt a lot more fluid. She used a flapjack and a ton of strikes and kicks to beat her down. With the crowd fairly quiet, you could hear that Nox enjoys a thigh slap when she’s on the attack.

Cross fired up in the last minutes, using a tornado DDT off the second rope for two before countering a comeback to hit Nox with a spinning neckbreaker for the win.

Final Thoughts:

It was good for the women’s division to be so well represented on the show this week. Everyone was good here, but WWE is missing something by not building any momentum or storylines like they used to. It was at its strongest last year when they played out angles so that the show didn’t exist in a vacuum and had some semblance of continuity.
