Living up to its name, Main Event once again showcased a couple of main event-worthy matches. 

OK, so maybe only one of Dolph Ziggler vs. Antonio Cesaro and Tons of Funk/Great Khali vs. Team Rhodes Scholars/Heath Slater was main event-worthy (I'll let you guess which one). But that one match was so good that it was worth two main events on its own.

With next week's Money in the Bank on the minds of many, let's take a look at the action from Wednesday's entertaining show. 


Dolph Ziggler Defeats Antonio Cesaro via DQ

Hopefully this was the WWE planting an early seed for a future Dolph Ziggler vs. Antonio Cesaro feud, because it's quite clear that these two know how to put on a show. 

And really, it's a feud that doesn't have to be that far away if Ziggler wins the world heavyweight title and Cesaro wins the world heavyweight title ladder match this Sunday. 

The Swiss Sensation received most of the early offense in what turned out to be close to a 30-minute match. He showcased his overpowering strength, turning heads with two massive uppercuts:

But for someone so strong, he also has quite a bit of athleticism and high-flying ability, as evidenced by an unbelievable superplex late in the match:

Of course, this isn't to take away from Ziggler, who continues to establish himself as one of the elite in-ring talents in this business. 

Although The Showoff spent a majority of the match successfully making Cesaro look strong, he still looked fantastic himself and got the win when Jack Swagger got involved after a Zig Zag. 

The future is strong with these two. 


Tons of Funk and Great Khali Defeat Heath Slater and Team Rhodes Scholars

This one, well, wasn't exactly met with quite as much acclaim:

The attention, of course, was on Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow, who are both a part of Sunday's WHC ladder match. But the match ended when the duo abandoned Slater and left him to be pinned by the Great Khali. 

You can read into that and say this made both wrestlers look weak heading into the pay-per-view, but I don't think it meant much.  

Still, despite how underwhelming it was, it didn't come close to taking away from the scintillating first match of the night.
