This week on Raw, fans witnessed a stellar main event between Jey Uso and Ilja Dragunov. The stakes were all-time high, with a massive opportunity to advance into the King of the Ring tournament on the line. Ever since it came out that the Unbesiegbar would face Main Event Jey on Raw, fans were divided. Therefore, WWE had a huge task in hand to deliver with this match.

Both stars showcased some incredible work, bringing out the best moves from their arsenals. It was a highly physical showdown where, at one point, Uso also had blood dripping off his earlobe. However, when it came down to the closing moments, fans were left puzzled when Jey Uso pinned Ilja Dragunov fair and square after a spear and splash combo.

The Invincible has the backing of the WWE Universe. Therefore, the idea of him losing his third official main roster match left a sour taste in their mouths. However, the only explanation for this move might have been to avoid a clash between Gunther and the Mad Dragon this early in the scene.

Regardless of the outcome, this match against Uso has certainly established the former NXT Champion as a star on the main roster. With a nod to his iconic rivalry with the Ring General, WWE has teased magnificent plans for the Unbesiegbar. That being set and done, “Main Event” Jey is ready to face the former Intercontinental Champion next week on Raw to qualify for the finals in the King of the Ring tournament.
