WWE Main Event promises another clash of the miniature titans, when Hornswoggle and El Torito meet again.
Big E vs. Alberto Del Rio/Bad News Barrett promo
Del Rio went for a Tornado DDT, but Big E used his strength to counter it and hit the Big Ending for the win. Decent, pretty quick match. Remember about a month ago when Del Rio was being positioned to challenge Big E for the title?
Barrett came out and told Big E he had some bad news. He said Big E only had 12 days left as champion, and that he was a bad champion. He then insulted Big E’s personality and intelligence, before comparing him to the audience. Good promo from Barrett, as he appears set to become the #1 Contender.
El Torito vs. Hornswoggle
El Torito went for a Bullsault, but Hornswoggle moved out of the way and hit a Tadpole Splash for the win. These two have had some “better than you’d expect” matches, and they appear set for a rubber match.
Sheamus vs. Titus O’Neil
Sheamus hit a Brogue Kick on Titus for the win. This was a really physical match, and another good match from Sheamus.
Jimmy Uso vs. Ryback
Ryback wins with a Shell Shocked and that should mean that Rybaxel will get a tag title shot at Extreme Rules. This was a good match, The Usos’ style seems to work well with Ryback’s.
More in-ring time than usual. Main Event is usually filled with more recaps of big moments of Raw, but that did not really happen on this week’s show, despite some important developments on Raw. Not only was there more in-ring work than usual, but that work was pretty good. If you’re missing Main Event, you’re missing out.
