In what is becoming a weekly assurance, WWE Main Event was chock-full of exciting, compelling action inside the ring
The hour-long event isn't always crucial for storyline development—although Triple H vs. Curtis Axel was officially confirmed for Raw on this week's episode—but it usually tends to provide fantastic technical wrestling and entertaining matches.
This week not only featured Antonio Cesaro putting on a show in an epic, thrilling match with Sheamus, but also The Usos vs. Team Rhodes Scholars and Justin Gabriel vs. Curt Hawkins, as well.
Let's take a look at the full results from Long Island, New York.
Sheamus defeats Antonio Cesaro
As it usually tends to go with the main event of Main Event, this was a fantastic match with lots of offense and some spectacular spots.
And while both wrestlers were great, Cesaro was undoubtedly the star.
First, the Swiss Sensation went deep into the record books and pulled out this historic move:
Later, he landed a massive uppercut on Sheamus in the air as well as a beautiful, high-flying knee drop from the top rope. Overall, he continued to showcase a tremendous combination of athleticism, strength and technical ability that can make him a joy to watch.
As a result, he had fans buzzing:
Believe me: That is only a very minuscule snippet of the majority of fans who were praising Cesaro.
Unfortunately, much to the chagrin of many, it was Sheamus who departed the ring victorious after landing a Brogue Kick. That's not to say the Celtic Warrior wasn't also terrific—because he was—but Cesaro doesn't deserve to be jobbing:
While Sheamus is seemingly headed for a battle with Damien Sandow at Payback, a feud with Cesaro in the near future would be welcomed from a wrestling perspective.
The Usos defeat Team Rhodes Scholars
This was a solid match, and with yet another victory and more talk from the announcer's table that they are a legitimate tag-title threat, it would appear The Usos are in the midst of a push.
The twins are not only unique characters, but their athletic ability and high-flying ways are incredibly fun to watch inside the ring:
Of course, the win came at the expense of Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes, who many also believe deserve a push in the division.
Nevertheless, as Sandow continues to feud with Sheamus, there is still hope they will both soon be in singles action where they could make a greater impact in the business.
Justin Gabriel defeats Curt Hawkins
This was a short match, and in the end, Gabriel was able to win after he landed his exhilarating 450 Splash.
