Main Event Review: 2/6/2014


Main Event time again. A 10-man tag match gave an exciting open in this one, but a slightly forgotten intellectual and a masked man may have stolen the show.

Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Los Matadores and El Torito vs. 3MB and Rybaxel/Heath Slater promo

Really fun match. Not the best, definitely a bit silly, but if you don’t put too much stock in it, it was really fun.

El Torito was pretty exciting as usual, his athleticism continues to amaze. Slater was also a bright spot in this one. Slater and El Torito were in the ring at the end, after the match broke down, and they ended up in a bit of a dance-off before El Torito hit a hurricanrana for the win.

After the match, Slater cut a promo about how he’s sick of stuff like this. The promo seemed very similar to the type of promo a Superstar would cut when he was set to be repackaged. Time will tell on that.

Eva Marie and Natalya vs. Alicia Fox and Aksana

This is the environment Eva Marie needs to be in if she’s going to be getting in the ring. She worked mostly with Alicia Fox, who is pretty good. Eva Marie was allowed to take things slow, not try and do too much, and it did a good job of hiding her flaws.

This one ended when Natalya accidentally took out Eva Marie, and while she was showing concern for her friend, Aksana hit Natalya with a spinebuster for the win.

Interesting to see the Total Divas take the loss. Nothing came of Natalya hitting Eva Marie, but who knows what the future holds for them. Not sure about Total Divas, but on in-ring shows, Eva Marie is much better suited hanging around Natalya.

Bad News Barrett promo

Barrett connected Spring Break to the decline of American society, which brought him to the future, where we will be the United States of China.

I’ve not been a fan of this character from the beginning, then he started to win me over at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, but he lost me again. Back to square one.

Darren Young vs. Titus O’Neil

This week on “What were they thinking?”, we have Darren Young beating Titus O’Neil with a roll-up in a rematch from Sunday’s pay-per-view.

This I don’t get at all. If WWE sees Titus as a star, than they should have had Titus beat Young on Raw, then move on to bigger and better things. Now it seems they don’t know what to do with Titus.

His charisma should have been enough, but a bad performance on the pay-per-view may be the cause for the hold up now.

Titus seemed ready to take off, now it’s time to reevaluate.

Sin Cara vs. Damien Sandow

Best match of the night here. Hunico might just be getting the character back on track. Ever since he took over, the character is having the matches that the WWE always envisioned him having.

Unfortunately for Sandow, he was on the losing end. Best case scenario for him right now is to take a seat. Sit on the bench until after WrestleMania, and see what opens up.

Things change after WrestleMania, the company becomes more willing to try new things. Sandow seemed on the rise after his Money in the Bank win last July, if he can revive his character, there’s no reason he can’t do it again come that pay-per-view’s newest edition in June.
