WWE Main Event

Here are the results from yesterday’s edition of WWE Main Event courtesy of Jake Barnett over at

  1. Team Hell No (c) defeated The Rhodes Scholars to retain the WWE World Tag Team Championship when Bryan pinned Rhodes after a top-rope headbutt (26:15).
  2. The Prime Time Players defeated Zack Ryder/Santino Marella when O’Neil pinned Ryder following his finishing move which I guess doesn’t have a name yet (10:58).

[TV Review] WWE Superstars – 11/22/2012

This week on Superstars, Zack Ryder/Santino Marella square off against 3MB and in the “main event” Darren Young is in singles action against Justin Gabriel.

Since this is a short show, check out my review of it right below. If you’re looking for a more full and detailed recap check out my coverage over at Lords of Evolution.


Match #1: 3MB (Heath Slater/Jinder Mahal) [w/ Drew McIntyre] defeated Zack Ryder/Santino Marella in 8:48.

  • This was billed as a “Survivor Series pre-show rematch” but to be honest this is more like a rematch of the last 5,000 times they’ve worked together since 3MB first began. That being said the two teams do work well together and this was another decent match with the highlight being Marella showing off some of his actual wrestling talent in the midst of his normal comedy routine. The guy has way more talent than any of us probably realize. Also as a side note, I think McIntyre might be the highlight of 3MB; he’s really taken a shine to the gimmick and is outshining even Slater at this point on presence alone. (C+)

Main Event: Justin Gabriel [w/ Tyson Kidd] pinned Darren Young [w/ Titus O’Neil] in 9:08.

  • Considering that last week’s Superstars main event was The Great Khali Vs. JTGI automatically consider this an upgrade (I also didn’t watch last week but I can assume it was pretty terrible because, seriously, The Great Khali). This turned out to be a pretty decent singles match that was given a good amount of TV time thanks to the fact WWE overlooks this show and probably doesn’t regulate it at all. O’Neil was fun acting as Young’s coach, blowing a whistle and yelling “TOUCHDOWN!” after a particularly brutal move. And if you’ve seen Gabriel in action before you know he can bring the thunder and did so here. Even though this was a singles match and Gabriel has far more singles experience (and wins), I was still surprised to see him get the nod here; seems like The Prime Time Players are higher on the WWE food chain so I just sort of expect them to win against lower level talent no matter a singles or tag team match. But I’m not disappointed in who won at all. (B-)

Other Points of Interest:

  • Scott Stanford and Matt Striker handled commentary and yes Striker’s creepstache is still in full effect. Shudder.
  • The show featured two RAW Rebounds: the first showed the Vickie/AJ/Cena/Ziggler in-ring confrontation in its entirety and the second was a video package that highlighted CM Punk’s celebration of being WWE Champion for one year (including Ryback getting sent through a table once again by Ambrose/Rollins/Reigns).
  • No mention was made of Thanksgiving on this episode since Superstars mainly (if not exclusively) airs in foreign markets.

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 11/5/2012

On this week’s edition of Raw:

  • The show comes live to tape from jolly ol’ Birmingham, England so there’s a good chance you can find spoilers. Don’t though; this is a much better and cooler recap.
  • Brad Maddox will make his first appearance since costing Ryback the WWE Championship at Hell in a Cell. 
  • Vickie Guerrero will present video evidence of John Cena/AJ Lee‘s alleged “affair”. Expect Cena to retaliate and for Dolph Ziggler to also get involved.
  • With two weeks to go until Survivor Series, expect the WWE to continue building its already announced matches as well as (hopefully) add a couple more.

All this and much more on this U.K. edition of Raw. Click “read more” for a detailed recap of the entire event plus my own thoughts.

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 10/29/2012

It’s the night after Hell in a Cell and there are many questions left unanswered: why did Brad Maddox cost Ryback the match against CM Punk? What “photographic proof” will Vickie Guerrero unveil to further implicate AJ Lee and John Cena? What will new World Heavyweight Champion The Big Show have to say now that he has successfully ended Sheamus’ 6 month reign as champion? Will Cena and Dolph Ziggler get into it once again?

All this and more awaits you on this week’s edition of Raw. Click “read more” for full coverage of the show in all of its overly detailed glory.

[TV Results] WWE Friday Night Smackdown – 10/12/2012

Note: In addition to my actual TV coverage, I will also be trying to post results of TV shows that I miss on a weekly basis. These will just have the match results and important storyline notes, free of my droll commentary and opinions. In other words you’ll probably like these more. Let’s see how this goes.

All information on matches/storylines come straight from the coverage of the show (some of the storyline stuff will be taken verbatim from there, but not a complete hatchet job don’t worry).

[TV Review] WWE Raw – 10/8/2012

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 9/24/2012

Raw Preview:

  • At the end of the show last week, CM Punk berated a new referee for his loss during the big tag team main event (Punk’s foot was on the rope). Undoubtedly Punk is still steaming will have a lot to say (maybe even more) about the injustice that occurred.
  • John Cena underwent elbow surgery last week and is not cleared to wrestle, but will be on the show in some capacity tonight.
  • Michael Cole will conduct an exclusive on-air interview with Jerry Lawler, who’s still recuperating from his almost-fatal heart attack two weeks ago.
  • The Prime Time Players (Darren Young/Titus O’Neil) made their presence felt last week by taking out Rey Mysterio/Sin Cara after their match. The Players are now ready to “take” whatever they want; what will they do this week and will Mysterio/Cara try to extract a little revenge?
  • Kane/Daniel Bryan continue their mis-matched Tag Team Champions shenanigans.
  • After destroying The “MizTV” set last week, Ryback has caught the ire of WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz. Does Miz have something sneaky up his sleeve?

All this and much more on the latest 3 hour edition of Raw.
