WWE Main Event Results: Winners, Twitter Reaction and Analysis from August 21
In what is becoming a common weekly occurrence, Main Event provided fans with some great action inside the ring.
The hour-long show has never really been known to provide much storyline development, other than giving wrestlers some momentum here or there, but that hardly matters. If you're interested in good wrestling matches, it's a show to watch.
That was once again true on Wednesday, with The Shield vs. The Usos and Kofi Kingston leading the way.
Let's take a look at the complete results from the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, Calif.
The Shield defeats The Usos and Kofi Kingston
Sure, we've seen variations of this match several times in the recent past. But when you remember how good Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. The Usos at Money in the Bank was, it's hard to get upset about seeing it again.
Throw in Dean Ambrose and Kofi Kingston, and it wasn't surprising to see this turn into such an enthralling match.
The Usos and Kingston showed off their athleticism and high-flying ability early, and The Shield ended it with their power and impressive technical ability.
Unsurprisingly, the fans were happy with what they saw:
I wouldn't mind watching the shield vs the usos every week on #MainEvent to be honest, they have great matches..— #BelieveInTheShield (@WWE_TheShield12) August 22, 2013
Jimmy and Jey seem to have fallen out of the tag team picture with Big Show and Mark Henry looking like they are next in line for a title shot, but it's never a bad thing to see these guys in the ring together.
They simply know how to put on a show.
A.J. Lee defeats Naomi
When you see matches like this, it's hard to imagine why the Divas division gets so little airtime in this company.
The outcome was inevitable—A.J. is the current Divas champion—but this duo still managed to put on a very good battle featuring some impressive offense from both sides.
In fact, the reception via Twitter even seemed a little better than the opening match:
AJ & Naomi was a nice little pilot match for the future. Future PPV Title match, for sure. #WWEMAINEVENT— Jason Namako (@Jason_Namako) August 22, 2013
This just a taste of whats to come from Naomi and AJ, all in due time cuz when it really goes down its going to be great #MainEvent— Juvon Lewis (@JVLewis77) August 22, 2013
The Divas have been getting a little more airtime lately because of their new reality show, but hopefully talented women like Naomi soon get more time to prove themselves inside the ring.
The Great Khali defeats Jack Swagger
Eesh. Remember when Jack Swagger was this close to winning the World Heavyweight Championship earlier this year?
Well, that seems like something of the very distant past, as a loss to Khali is the newest low during his most-recent run.
Also, Khali has gotten a few wins over the past couple of weeks. Does it mean anything? Probably not.
Bray Wyatt defeats Justin Gabriel
Bray Wyatt's match with Kane at SummerSlam left many viewers feeling extremely underwhelmed. This fan put it simply:
bray wyatt's debut has been such let down so far. his promos rock but his matches have been awful.— jess (@shwaggerlicious) August 22, 2013
I'm still on board with Wyatt, however. His character in unique and he is unbelievable on the mic. He just needs better matches to gain more momentum.
A squash over Justin Gabriel doesn't mean much, but hopefully it points toward Wyatt wrestling more in the next month.
