Welcome to your weekly spoiler-free preview of WWE Main Event. Here, you will get a rundown of all the matches set to take place and the possible repercussions.
This week's show features the typical three-match card we have grown accustomed to, but unlike recent weeks, one of the matches actually lives up to the show's "main event" title.
The great thing about main event is that we usually get a break from the major storylines happening in WWE. It's usually just three matches between people who have no current rivalries.
The bad thing about main event is that there is nothing to keep the casual fan interested except the actual wrestling. Without the storylines, a lot of people just don't care. Hence the low ratings the show usually brings in.
But the pros and cons of angles and feuds are for someone else to weigh. As WWE fans, we just care if the show is good, and this week's show has the potential to be pretty good.
Let's take a look at the matches scheduled for the show.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Alberto Del Rio
No matter how many times Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio have a match, it never gets old. These are two of WWE's most technically talented performers, and they always pull out all the stops.
Just because this is the C-show doesn't mean they will put in any less effort. Ziggler and Del Rio pride themselves on being two of the best performers in WWE today, and a big part of that comes from giving it their all no matter what show they are booked on.
Their chemistry has produced several show-stealing matches, and main event will most likely be another example of their incredible skills at work.
There is no feud between them. Neither man has a title, and neither man is the top contender for a title. This match is just for the sake of entertainment value, and at this point, main event needs that kind of match.
Expect this match to be given a significant amount of time, and you can definitely expect it to steal the show.
Damien Sandow vs. Santino
Main event always offers a wide variety of matches, but this match will almost certainly be a quick squash.
Damien Sandow might not be the hottest commodity right now, but WWE clearly has faith in the outspoken intellectual. Santino, on the other hand, hasn't been near a real push in some time.
Sandow just picked up a hard-fought win over Dolph Ziggler on Monday, so it standS to reason that WWE wouldn't bring him back down by making him look weak in a match against Santino.
The master of The Cobra will probably get in a few offensive moves, but look for this match to be controlled by Sandow for the majority, if not the entirety of the match.
This might not compare to Ziggler and Del Rio, but not every match has to. Sometimes a match just needs to give a Superstar some screen-time and a win, and this will be one of those matches.
Kofi Kingston vs. Fandango
Kofi Kingston and Fandango have had some matches in the past. The quality of those matches have typically been mixed.
The amount of time these two men will be given will dictate how exciting the match is, but odds are good that it'll be passable as a closer.
Fandango is a solid performer, and Kofi is someone who can always get a good reaction from the crowd with his high-flying moves and quick offense.
This match could end up exceeding expectations, though. With two talented performers like these, you always have the chance to witness something special.
That's it for this week. Which match are you looking forward to seeing the most?
