It’s a night of Rematches! Tonight, Kofi Kingston invokes his rematch clause and takes on the NEWWWW United States Champion Dean Ambrose and the Miz finally takes advantage of his rematch with Wade Barrett for the Intercontinental Championship on Smackdown LIVE (on Tape) from Omaha Nebraska.
Also in action the focus of a lot of online chatter and latest Paul Heyman Guy, Curtis Axel takes on Sin Cara. Hopefully, Paul Heyman will grace us with a verbal soliloquy like I mentioned HERE.
In addition, Daniel Bryan faces Jack Swagger and Chris Jericho meets The Big Show.
And finally, Fandango and Summer Rae are the guests on Miz TV. Hey, I thought we were hinting at replacing this with The Damien Sandow Show. What gives?
Overall it sounds like a great card on paper, if lacking storyline development. Now if we could just shorten all the Raw Recaps we could get SmackDown back into ‘Must-See-TV.’ (That is not an invitation to make the Miz the focus, I repeat, not an invitation to push the Miz on SmackDown.)
Tonight’s episode of WWE Main Event is a three-headed monster of sports entertainment!
1. WWE Tag Team Champion Kane vs. Seth Rollins
The WWE’s hottest rivalry has spilled over into Main Event! People can’t get enough of the Shield/Team Hell No beef, and with the tag titles on the line this Sunday at Extreme Rules, things can only intensify from here on out. Don’t be shocked if there are appreances by Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns. This one has the potential to end in an all-out brawl.
2. WWE Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett vs. Sin Cara (non-title match)
Welcome back Sin Cara! The WWE Universe hasn’t seen the high-flying superhero in a few weeks, and he faces a tough match in his return against the IC Champ, Wade Barrett. Barrett hasn’t been involved in a proper feud in a while, so it will be interesting to see if this match is a one-off or develops into something more substantial. The answer could be determined by how well the disparate styles of Barrett and Sin Cara mesh in the ring.
3. Cody Rhodes vs. Justin Gabriel
In what should be a solid matchup, master technician Cody Rhodes goes one-on-one with the energetic Justin Gabriel. Cody’s mustache will be ringside.
Also on Main Event tonight, there will be appearances by The Miz and….THE USOS! Where does everyone’s favorite under-utilized tag team fit into the program? You gotta watch to find out!
Fans of Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett will definitely want to tune into tonight’s episode of WWE Main Event.
Tonight’s edition features a 10-man battle royal! The winner of which receives a shot at Wade Barrett’s Intercontinental Championship later in the show. Some of the “rumored” participants include Alex Riley, Santino Marella, and Heath Slater.
As was mentioned, the IC Champ himself is in action as well, facing the winner of the 10-man battle royal with his title on the line. Wade Barrett also appears on commentary during the battle royal and discusses his title reign and loss to R-Truth in a one-on-one backstage interview.

The Barrett Barrage is going to Wrestlemania.
Last night on Raw, The Miz picked up another non-title submission victory over a midcard champ. This time, Wade Barrett was the victim of the Awesome One’s inherited Figure Four. As a result, The Miz has a chance to win back the I-C title at the Showcase of the Immortals:
