Full Preview for WWE Main Event Featuring Damien Sandow and Dolph Ziggler

The Doctor Chris MuellerFeatured ColumnistOctober 23, 2013


After a few weeks of lackluster shows, it would appear that WWE has once again started putting some effort into the matches featured on Main Event.

This week's show will feature four matches, three of which have real potential to be great bouts.

Hell in a Cell is just days away, so WWE is probably going to feature a handful of video packages along with these four matches, which means less time allocated to each match. But considering who is involved, that might not matter as much as it would on a less star-studded show.

Let's take a look at the matches that are scheduled for the show, spoiler-free.


Goldust vs. Roman Reigns

One-half of the current tag champs will take on one-half of the former tag champs when Goldust locks horns with The Shield's powerhouse Roman Reigns.

This will be a solid match, as both men are very capable of producing a great performance every time they step in the ring.

Goldust is in the midst of a career resurgence. He is in great shape, the fans are totally behind him and you can tell that he is really enjoying being back in WWE alongside his brother.

Reigns, on the other hand, is just getting started in WWE. He has been on the main roster less than a year, but he has already created quite a name for himself with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.

Hopefully, The Shield will keep their distance for a little while, so that this match will have the chance to live up to its potential.


The Real Americans vs. The Prime Time Players

WWE's tag team division has a lot of talent right now, and these two teams represent some of the best talent in the division.

Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro have really found their groove as a tag team. Their chemistry gets better with each passing week, and that can only lead to great things for Zeb Colter's boys.

PTP have also become hot commodities in WWE. Darren Young has become one of WWE's more vocal ambassadors, and Titus O'Neil is someone who we have literally watched go from green to gold since his debut on NXT.

Putting these four men in the ring together is by no means a fresh match, but they always manage to have very physical encounters, which usually leads to a good match.


The Funkadactyls vs. Aksana and Alicia Fox

If history tells us anything, it's that this match will be short.

Naomi might be one of the more physically gifted Divas WWE has seen in years, but all that talent cannot make a Divas tag match good if she doesn't have equally talented opponents.

Aksana has potential, and Alicia Fox is decent, but Cameron is still mediocre at best. Let's just hope that Naomi does most of the heavy lifting in this match.

On an slightly unrelated note, Alicia Fox may hold the record for most bounces from heel to babyface with no storyline turn in WWE history.


Damien Sandow vs. Dolph Ziggler

This could have been the featured match any other week on Main Event, but match placement won't matter for the Show Off and Mr. Money in the Bank.

Sandow and Ziggler are quite possibly two of the most useful talents WWE has at the moment because they always put their best effort forward, whether they are on Superstars or a pay-per-view.

We just saw this same match on the Battleground pre-show, but who cares? When you have two men with this much talent between them, the match can happen on any show and it will be good, so long as WWE gives them enough time.

Main Event should be a good show this week. Which match are you looking forward to the most?
