WWE Main Event doesn't get much attention, but Wednesday's addition featured the Royal Rumble runner-up, the United States champion and even a face turn. 

Not too shabby for a show that continually flies massively far under the radar.

In addition to Ryback vs. Antonio Cesaro, fans were treated to a battle between Tensai and the always-energetic Titus O'Neil. 

Let's take a look at what happened. 


Ryback defeats Antonio Cesaro via count-out

Much like last week on Main Event, these two put on a good match with an ending that likely left most fans disappointed. 

Ryback, as he often does, dominated most of the battle, but when Cesaro actually gained control, he showcased his impressive strength and arsenal of moves.

Nevertheless, we were clearly headed for a repeat finish. 

After being chased down by Mr. Feed Me More on his first attempt to escape the arena, Cesaro, just moments later, slipped through the ropes, gave a swift boot to Miz's face and disappeared into the crowd as Ryback was crowned winner. 


Tensai defeats Titus O'Neil

Titus O'Neil predictably impressed with some high-flying, fast-paced action, but there was clearly more at work here. 

After a bit of back-and-forth, Tensai dropped Titus with a running senton and was able to get the pin. 

There was a short staredown between the winner and Brodus Clay, who was ringside for the match, but then Brodus' music hit and it turned into one big dance party.

But of course.  

Chalk this one up to a face turn for Tensai


Twitter reaction

Ryback vs. Cesaro once again ended with the Swiss Sensation bolting from the ring, but Wrestle Enigma has a hypothesis as to why he keeps leaving:

Of course, this fan wasn't nearly as dispirited with Ryback's performance inside the ring:

In fact, despite the shoddy ending, the match even led to certain reactions as positive as this one from wrestling fan Clinton Uba:

With the night's developments, it's never too early to start thinking of potential names for the Tensai-Brodus Clay duo that seems to be brewing. This fan might have had the best:

I'm not sure if the WWE world is ready.
