The WWE's Main Event show took place on Wednesday night in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and featured Alberto Del Rio versus the Big Show in a match that renewed an old rivalry.

Also in action was the Usos against Heath Slater and Drew McIntyre, as well as Intercontinental champion Wade Barrett against Justin Gabriel. 

Let's take a look at the results of the show and the reaction on Twitter.


Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show

Del Rio continued to try and show his lighter side with some comedy. Before his match with Big Show, Del Rio cut a promo stating his love for the United States and even showed a video making fun of Jack Swagger and Zeb Coulter talking about Mexican food that was pretty funny.

Big Show started off by dominating Del Rio with his raw size and strength, but Del Rio quickly turned things around to even the score.

Swagger and Coulter would then come down to the ring to watch the match.

Big Show immediately regained control after Del Rio was distracted by Swagger's presence on the ramp and Big Show punished the World Heavyweight champion's arm repeatedly.

Big Show nearly landed a powerbomb, but Del Rio reversed it with a hurricanrana and nearly scored two pinfalls on the Big Show shortly after.

Show ended up tossing Del Rio out of the ring and while the champ was on the outside, Swagger came down the ramp and chop-blocked Del Rio, which clearly shook him up enough to get counted out for the loss.

It didn't look like Del Rio escaped the attack without getting injured, and that could have a lasting effect as WrestleMania approaches.


Jey and Jimmy Uso vs. Drew McIntyre and Heath Slater

Slater mocked the Usos and quickly paid for it as both Jey and Jimmy combined to punish him, nearly scoring an early pinfall.

Slater tossed one of the Usos out of the ring and McIntyre bounced his head off the side of the ring. After taking it back into the ring, both McIntyre and Slater double-teamed one half of their tag opponents to gain the advantage.

Slater came back in but lost control, and the Usos looked primed to take the match after a huge Samoan Drop, but Slater ran in to break up the pin attempt on McIntyre.

But that didn't help much as the Usos pulled off a Superfly Smash from the top rope to get the pin on McIntyre.


Justin Gabriel vs. Wade Barrett

Gabriel was looking for the upset in this match and did a pretty good job in his attempt. After some back and forth, Gabriel went for his move off the top rope, but was unsuccessful in landing it and got viciously kicked for his efforts.

After missing his finisher once, Barrett landed a Bull Hammer after Gabriel attempted another move off the top rope and flat-out knocked Gabriel out cold, which was good enough for the victory.

Barrett finished by sharing a staredown with The Miz at the announcer's table.


Twitter Reaction

WrestlingInc.com's Twitter page wasn't too thrilled about another match involving Del Rio and Big Show:

First match is @vivadelrio vs @wwethebigshow (for the 100th time) with @realjackswagger and @wwezeb watching by ringside. Quite eerie...

This wrestling fan was not happy about the way the Del Rio-Big Show match ended:

@wwe Swagger made Del Rio to lose to Big Show on a COUNT OUT. He lost by a half-a-damn second. Stuff like that... PISSES me off. #MainEvent

WrestlingInc.com also provided this juicy tweet for the show, which stems from the Rock-Cena WrestleMania promo we saw during Main Event:

A story such as.... WWE claims Cena losing to Rock at Wrestlemania was the cause of his divorce...? #MainEvent
