Full Preview for WWE Main Event Featuring Goldust and Ryback

The Doctor Chris MuellerFeatured ColumnistDecember 4, 2013


Welcome to your weekly spoiler-free preview of WWE Main Event. Here, you will get a rundown of all of the matches set to take place and the possible repercussions.

Viewers of Main Event have grown accustomed to two things: no major storylines being addressed in matches and a three-match format.

This week will be no different, as none of the matches involve any major rivalries and we have three bouts ahead of us.

The big difference between this week's show and previous weeks is that this week features three matches that all have the potential to be good as opposed to only one or two of the matches having any real likelihood to entertain the crowd.

Let's take a look at the matches scheduled for the show.


Goldust vs. Ryback

Monday night on Raw, it was announced that Ryback and Goldust would be doing battle in the match billed as the main event.

There are few examples of old school vs. new school better than this match. Ryback represents the current generation, while Goldust is one of the more seasoned veterans in the business today.

This match is one that is not easy to gauge ahead of time. Ryback's matches are usually more hit than miss, but Goldust as an opponent changes things.

Goldust is like a fine wine, only getting better with age. He has brought more moves into his arsenal, and he is in better shape than we have seen him in years, which has allowed him to really establish himself as one of the most versatile stars on the roster.

Cody Rhodes and Curtis Axel will be at ringside, which adds another layer of unpredictability to the match. That also means this could end up being our next tag title feud. 

The outcome of the match is not really that important, as there is really nothing on the line, so let's just hope the skill of Goldust can overcome Ryback's shortcomings to produce an entertaining match.


The Usos vs. 3MB (Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre)

There is no word yet on if 3MB will be using any other band names this week, but we do know they are facing WWE's most exciting tag teams in The Usos.

WWE's tag team division is overflowing with talent these days, and the four men in this match illustrate that point well.

With neither one of these teams looking like real contenders for the titles at the moment, this match could go either way.

The Usos are more accustomed to winning than 3MB, but that doesn't make a win a lock for them. 3MB could always end up getting the win, but the odds are not in their favor.

On a slightly related note, if 3MB are looking for more band names, there are some good suggestions in this video.



Damien Sandow vs. R-Truth

Damien Sandow is officially the No. 1 contender for the Intercontinental Championship after defeating Dolph Ziggler on Raw, so him losing a random match two days later seems unlikely.

R-Truth is slightly involved in a storyline with Xavier Woods and Brodus Clay, but he is sort of on the sidelines, which is where Truth has been spending a lot of time the past year.

But like the previous two matches, there's really nothing at stake in this match, which means the entertainment value is more important than who wins.

All three matches have the potential to be very entertaining this week, which is not usually the case on Main Event.

WWE has hit a plateau with regards to excitement lately, so hopefully this show produces some top-notch action to turn things around.

That's it for this week. Which match are you looking forward to seeing the most?
