WWE Main Event is back and bringing a bevy of brilliant bouts!
Three matches tonight:
1. Antonio Cesaro vs. Sheamus
Antonio Cesaro hasn’t done much since his promo that promised a new, more intense, more unstoppable Cesaro, but a win over the Irish Warrior would go a long way in re-establishing Cesaro as a credible threat in the WWE.
2. The Usos vs. Team Rhodes Scholars
The Usos continue to get pushed! After giving the beatdown to the Primetime Players on Monday Night, Jimmy and Jey take aim at another well-established tag team in Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow. Also, will they continue wearing the facepaint?
3. Justin Gabriel vs. Curt Hawkins
The Prince of Queens makes his long-awaited return to Main Event and goes up agianst the high-flyer from South Africa.
In tonight’s episode, Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett makes his return to WWE Main Event, headlining a stellar three-match card.
1. IC Champion Wade Barrett vs. Sheamus (non-title match)
Fresh off of a beat-down from the Miz, Wade Barrett’s week doesn’t get any easier as a match with the Celtic Warrior awaits him. Luckily for Barrett, the prestigious Intercontinental Title is not on the line in what should be an entertaining matchup between two brutes.
2. Antonio Cesaro vs. Justin Gabriel
Main Event regular Gabriel takes on former US Champion Cesaro in what should be a terrific match. These two wrestlers had some memorable moments on WWE Superstats back when Cesaro had just debuted (and was still being accompanied to the ring by Aksana). Also, as Cesaro’s being featured less on Raw and Smackdown, he’s guaranteed to make the most of his lone televised match this week.
3. 3MB vs. R-Truth and Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay & Tensai)
Since 3MB (apparently) loves to makes music and Truth and Tons of Funk love to dance, it’s surprising that they’re always at odds. Despite that natural compatibility, don’t expect any new friendships to form during this trios match.
ALSO, *rumor* has it a certain “must-see” WWE Superstar will be making a cameo tonight!
This week’s edition of WWE Main Event primarily focuses on the World’s Strongest Man and former World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry, who gets a chance to shine both on the mic and in the ring.
First, Henry has an interview with one John Bradshaw Layfield. No doubt the focus of the one-on-one will be Henry’s burgeoning fued with Sheamus. A few weeks ago on Raw, Henry attacked Sheamus out of nowhere. Since then the Celtic Warrior has returned the favor, and the two have met in the ring as well as part of a tag-team match. Hopefully this interview will shed some light on Henry’s motivations behind picking a fight with Sheamus and what he hopes to get out of splitting Sheamus’ wig.
Moving along, Mark Henry will be participating in a rarely-seen gauntlet match! “Rumor” has it, the Usos will be making an appearance.
Finally, in the show’s only non-Mark Henry-related segment, Matt Striker sits down with Zeb Colter to discuss Jack Swagger’s upcoming triple threat match for the World Heavyweight Championship at Extreme Rules.
With no offense to Y2J, this was the highlight of my night.
I can’t help but notice so many people are down on this guy – and, well, taking all the bait WWE is clearly laying out to build heat on the most talented man yet to debut on the main roster.
Coincidentally enough, if Fandango and Big E. Langston can avoid having a scheduled match for the next two weeks, they will tie one another for being the first Superstars ever to debut on the main roster on the Wrestlemania card. Yeah. Stats. Know about ‘em.
Alright, so where were we…
Ah, the ever windy road the Wrestlemania 29. Here is what we have tonight:
Dolph Ziggler and Big E. will challenge for the Tag Titles against Kane and DB – buuuuuut what can that hellion AJ Lee do to throw Team Hell No off there game?
Alberto Del Rio is going to be looking to settle ALL the scores with Jack Swagger after he incapacitated Ricardo Rodriguez last week.
Will Randy Orton and Sheamus accept Big Show as their teammate against Shield at WM?
Chris Jericho and the Miz are still pursuing Randy Ortons IC title.
CM Punk has reaaaalllly irked the Deadman. It seems he may be trying to play head game with the Undertaker to force a mistake that could result in a DQ win and culmination of the streak.
Triple H and Brock Lesnar are booked, going no DQ – no holds barred. Expect recap and discussion.
And the Rock has (finally) arrived in Philly for tonights RAW and will be confronting John Cena with a heated… I don’t know. They’ll posture around for a bit, but have a lot of work to do to explain why they are the main event.
All this and, well, yeah much much more. So much to do – in so much time.
