Main Event Review: 1/22/2014

Main Event time, four days until Sunday’s Royal Rumble. Tom Phillips and The Miz on commentary.

Damien Sandow promo/R-Truth vs. Damien Sandow (Xavier Woods on commentary)

Sandow cuts a promo on his way to the ring. Sandow talks about the Royal Rumble and how he intends to win it, and the title at WrestleMania.

This match started fast, a lot of good early roll-up attempts. Sandow’s offensive-style is relentless, it’s pretty unique and he definitely brings something different to the match. Truth gets the win.

My Take: The commentary in this match was interesting. They spent most of their conversation on the Royal Rumble, but Woods kept saying he wouldn’t eliminate Truth until the very end, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Truth eliminate Woods and start a feud between the two. Good match here, Sandow deserves a push, and Truth deserves more air time in the right role.

The Bella Twins vs. Alicia Fox and Aksana

Good match here. Nikki pins Alicia Fox for the win.

My Take: The Bella Twins have reportedly been asking for a Divas tag team championship, this match showed there may be a reason for that. It feels like the Divas have been in tag teams more than singles recently, and I feel they are more impressive in that role.

Sin Cara vs. Alberto Del Rio

Good match here, their styles work well together. Del Rio gets the win in a back-and-forth match with the Cross Arm Breaker.

My Take: How many times have we seen this match? They do put on good matches, I will give them that, but it doesn’t matter. Seeing the same match too many times in a short time frame hurts the match, it becomes harder and harder to get into it.

Overall Impression

Not a bad show. WWE’s never going to impress with Main Event, but it’s a nice way to hold fans over from Monday to Friday.
