It’s Your Main Event
With Andrew B.
Welcome everyone, Andrew B here to look at everyone’s favorite Wednesday Night show, WWE Main Event. This week Sheamus will battle Wade Barrett in our feature contest. Plus in a 6 man tag 3MB will take on R Truth & Tons of Funk. Plus in a rematch from Hell in a Cell 2012 Justin Gabriel will battle Antonio Cesaro. So let’s begin right now.
We get the Main Event intro & theme song followed by the pyro & then sees that the commentators for the night are Josh Matthews, Miz & Ricardo Rodriguez.
Match 1: “The Great White” Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett:
What a damn good match. The start was a little slow but after Barrett clotheslined Sheamus outside the ring 3 minutes into the match & they went to break after the 1st break the match picked up big time. There were nice spots like Barrett hitting Sheamus with an elbow drop off the apron on Sheamus. Barrett worked on the arm & shoulder mostly off Sheamus. There was a moment when Barrett went for Wasteland & Sheamus counters & hit White Noise. Sheamus then went for the Brogue Kick but Barrett hit the Winds if Change & I thought it could have been over there. Another moment was when Sheamus locked Barrett in the Texas Cloverleaf & I thought it could have ended there. The crowd chanted “This is Awesome” during the match & I agree as Sheamus kicked out of Wasteland. In the end Sheamus won with the Brogue Kick after about 20 minutes.
Match Rating: **** out of 5
We then get a Raw Rebound of John Cena announcing the main event for Payback & then his match with Curtis Axel. Ricardo Rodriguez said he thinks Cena will leave Payback as champion.
We then see the creepy promo for The Wyatt Family that aired Monday.
We then see a recap of Paul Heyman on the Highlight Reel from last Monday’s RAW.
Match 2: Justin Gabriel vs. Antonio Cesaro:
This was a decent 4 minute match that saw both men give it their all. There were a few decent spots but Cesaro was mostly in control. In the end Gabriel went for the 450 splash but Cesaro crotched him & then hit the Neutralizer for the win. After the match Cesaro gave Gabriel a hard slap.
Winner: Antonio Cesaro
Match Rating: * ¼ out of 5
Match 3: 3MB vs. R Truth & Tons of Funk:
Slater start with Clay & Clay takes control & tags in Tensai. They give Slater a double clothesline. Slater manages to take control & 3MB makes quick tags to all 3 members attacking Tensai. In the end all 6 men are fighting & Tons of Funk hit a double body splash of Mahal & Truth hits Mahal with Little Jimmy for the win after about 2 minutes.
Winners: Tons of Funk & R Truth
Match Rating: ½ * out of 5
Overall Rating for the 5/29 Main Event: 4.5 out of 10
It was basically a one match card as Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett was the match of the night. It was amazing & worth watching. The announcer’s team was weird this week but it was alright. Hopefully next week they change it. Gabriel vs. Cesaro was good for the few minutes they received. The 6 man tag was short & bad because 3MB lost & it was a total squash. I understand the grade is low for this week’s show but the only thing worth watching is the first match.
Well that all for this week’s Main Event Review & I’ll see you all next week.
