Welcome to Bleacher Report's recap of WWE Main Event. Here is where we take a look at what happened on the show, the winners and reactions from matches and any possible ramifications coming out of the program.

We had another live show this week that featured the Main Event debut of The Undertaker and the return of Layla.


The Real Americans vs. The Brotherhood

It looks like whatever injury Goldust suffered on Raw near his eye was not too severe, since he was wrestling in this match the very next night.

The match featured four very technical wrestlers who all have their own unique style, which allowed for this to be a pretty entertaining match overall.

Everyone got a chance to hit a signature move or two, but it was Cody Rhodes and Goldust who walked away with the win.

We have seen this match plenty of times in the past, but it always manages to deliver something different, so the repetitiveness is easier to take.

Winners: Cody Rhodes and Goldust

Grade: B+

Notes and Highlights:

  • When Cody Rhodes gets a hot tag late in the match, you know you are in for some excitement. His flurry at the end was flawless.
  • Cesaro catching Goldust in midair and flipping him over for a slam was very impressive.

Twitter Reaction:


Layla and Alicia Fox vs. The Funkadactyls

This was exactly what you would expect from a Divas tag match. There wasn't really anything wrong with what went on; it just wasn't anything special.

Seeing Naomi manage as well as she has in the ring with an eyepatch is impressive, and seeing as she is the one scoring the pins lately, it seems WWE is ready to keep pushing her.

Cameron is just along for the ride, but it would be cool if WWE actually kept them together instead of having a jealousy storyline like almost any tag team that has one person win a singles title.

Winners: The Funkadactyls

Grade: C-

Notes and Highlights:

  • The split-leg moonsault is a good finisher for Naomi. It allows her to show some agility without her having to take as big of a risk as she would with a springboard.
  • The lack of any storyline for Layla's return is not a good sign, and losing her first match back doesn't bode any better for her.
  • The commentators mentioned Total Divas a lot, but not as much as would be expected right after its season debut.

Twitter Reaction:


Titus O'Neil vs. Big Show

Titus looked good in this match, but it was short, and he still ended up losing. There's not much more to say.

Big Show took a few hits, got angry and hit the KO Punch for the pin and the win. Titus hit his finisher at one point, but Big Show kicked right out of it.

Winner: Big Show

Grade: C-

Notes and Highlights:

  • Titus is hilarious when he talks trash in the ring. He interacts with the crowd and has a certain type of swagger WWE hasn't seen in a while.
  • Seeing as neither man is getting a push, there really seems like no reason WWE should have broken up the Prime Time Players. Darren Young hasn't been seen in a little bit, and Titus is losing matches. Nobody benefited from the breakup, and we lost an entertaining tag team.

Twitter Reaction:


The Undertaker and Paul Heyman

Paul Heyman came out and addressed The Undertaker knowing full well he was in the building. Just as he was about to leave, we got the sound of the familiar gong that accompanies The Deadman.

The Undertaker grabbed Heyman by the throat and delivered a decent promo about slaying the beast, but the way he sounded was a bit different from the usual slow, demonic speech.

It was almost as if he were combining classic Undertaker with American Badass Undertaker and throwing in a dash of John Wayne, Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood from their countless cowboy roles.

This was a solid segment that hit on all the right notes and reminded all of us why The Undertaker is who he is in this business.

Winners: The Fans

Grade: A

Notes and Highlights:

  • Paul Heyman is always really good at acting surprised and scared, but he was hamming it up a little extra for The Undertaker.
  • The Undertaker's goatee and mohawk are an interesting look.
  • Taker also looks like he has packed on a bit of muscle since last year.

Twitter Reaction:


This week was a pretty good show, but it did not have the match quality of the past two weeks. The opening tag match and The Undertaker segment were the highlights, and the other two matches were just average.

What did you think of this week's show?
