-Main Event music video followed by full pyro, and Josh Mathews welcomes everyone to Main Event. The Miz’s music hits and he is competing tonight instead of being on commentary. Josh will be joined by Wade Barrett tonight!
Cody Rhodes makes his way to the ring. He is in action against The Miz in a re-match from Raw.
1 - THE MIZ vs. CODY RHODES
Wade Barrett makes a comment that could be construed as inside when he says that IC champions are treated like garbage. Barrett also corrects Josh Mathews when Josh informs him that he has a 66 percent chance of losing the title. He calls his math terrible! Miz works a headlock into a pin sequence, and the sequence ends with Cody on his back and Miz on top of him applying a headlock. Cody pops out of the hold and backs Miz into the corner and stomps away on him.
Cody tries a sunset flip, but Miz kicks him in the face as a counter. Cody nails Miz with a boot when Miz puts his head down for a back body drop, and a dropkick gets two for Rhodes. Rhodes fails a missile dropkick, Miz catches him and tries the figure-four, Rhodes counters and kicks Miz off as Main Event cuts to break 4:30 into the match!
Cody has Miz in a chinlock as Main Event returns. Miz sidesteps a charging Rhodes and sends him to the floor and follows up with a baseball slide. Miz slams Cody face-first into multiple surfaces around ringside, he then tries pulling Rhodes into the ring, but Cody slams Miz’s hand into the steel post!
Back in the ring, the referee checks on Miz, but Rhodes butts in and goes to work on the injured arm. Barrett is elated that The Miz will be seriously injured going into Payback. Cody stretches out the injured arm with a submission hold and then goes back to work on the left arm. Front face suplex by Rhodes gets a two count on Miz as Wade sings his praises and his family tree.
[Q2] Cody sets up Miz by the ropes and charges at him, only to get dumped to the floor again. Cody barely beats the count in and walks into an inverted atomic drop and a big boot from Miz. Miz gets his patented running clothesline in the corner and he goes up top, he hits him with a flying chop for a two count. Miz is selling the arm - he must have chopped with the bad one, then Cody sees this and attacks it again. Miz shrugs off the offense and does his neckbreaker, reverse backbreaker combo for another two count.
Skull Crushing Finale is reversed into a trip into the steel post and a Beautiful Disaster Kick for a close two count. Cody yells at the referee and stomps away on Miz while yelling, “That was three!” Miz then grabs Cody’s leg and hooks him in the figure-four and gets the tap-out for the win out of nowhere! That was one ugly set-up and execution of the figure-four. Maybe he should stick to moves he can do, like clotheslines and more clotheslines.
WINNER: The Miz by submission in 15:42.
-Miz and Wade staredown each other as Miz’s arm is raised in victory.
-Damien Sandow is walking backstage, he will be out, next!
-C.M. Punk returns to the ring this Sunday at Payback. A hype video for Punk is shown.
-Damien Sandow is out, he has a microphone, and he demands silence! He claims he be physically ill at looking at the people in the crowd. He calls them unwashed masses and he admits defeat in enlightening them and he thinks what needs to be done is he needs to lower the bar for them. Sandow starts talking slower and phonetically. To kick off his second year he will beat up Sheamus, their hero. IT will be a learning experience for everyone.
-Sin Cara is out next, he will wrestle Damien Sandow.
2. DAMIEN SANDOW vs. SIN CARA
Sin Cara mood lighting tonight, but it doesn’t bother Sandow, who takes down Cara and stomps away on him.
[Q3] Sandow side-steps a handspring elbow from Sin Cara, but Cara does a back flip. Sandow calls for a timeout and then goes for Cara and backs him into the corner and drives his shoulder into the midsection of Cara. Sin Cara counters out of a chinlock and he enziguri’s Sandow in the shoulder. Springboard dropkick by Sin Cara has Sandow abandoning the ring and he runs up the ramp to avoid Sin Cara all together.
(Commercial, including a spot for the WWE App. I think they want you to use it in all aspects of your life starting now...]
Sandow is in control when Main Event returns. He is driving a knee into Sin Cara's head, then he stomps the mid-section. Bodyslam by Sandow. He drags Sin Cara to the apron and drives the point of the elbow to his throat. Sin Cara tries fighting off Sandow, but runs into a back elbow and then the Elbow of Disdain for another two count.
Sleeper by Damien. Cara rallies to his feet and nails Sandow with his handspring elbow. Pinning sequence by Sin Cara and an armdrag to the corner, then he kicks Sandow in the back of the head and then misses a Swanton Bomb. Sandow then puts Sin Cara away with what looks like a Rock Bottom.
WINNER: Damien Sandow by pinfall in 8:39.
-Josh reminds Wade about being part of the expert panel on the Aftershow for the last PPV, but Wade seemed indifferent, calling it "a great time." Still to come, what have John Cena and Ryback been up to?
-A recap of the Cena vs. Ryback feud is shown. They face each other in a Three Stages of Hell match this Sunday at Payback!
-Tons of Funk dance their way to the ring. They are decked out in blue and they are in action next! Wade Barrett comments that this isn’t funky and once this act loses the guys, it could be something Wade is interested in watching!
-The Usos's entrance is similar to Tons of Funks's in that they dance, too, just not as wacky of a dance.
3 - TONS OF FUNK vs. THE USOS
Brodus and Jimmy Uso start things off. Brodus knocks him down and then dances. Jimmy laughs it off, then same thing happens. So, Jey tags in, followed by Sweet T. Tensai powers him into the corner and monkey flips him to the middle of the ring and dances. Side headlock by Jey. Tensai tries to break the hold, but The Uso hangs on. Tensai breaks it and gets a flying clothesline. The Usos dance to play mind games and Clay is tagged back in.
Tons of Funk double-team Jey, then Brodus misses an elbow drop and Jimmy Uso is tagged back in. Flying forearm by Jimmy takes Clay down, but he gets caught by a headbutt when he follows up. Clay takes out both Usos and he t-bone suplexes Jimmy across the ring. Big splash almost gets the win, but Jey breaks up the pin. Clay misses a charge in the corner and Jey is tagged back in. Superkick by Jey connects, then he goes up top for a Superfly Splash, which connects and The Usos get a huge win!
WINNERS: The Usos by pin in 4:50.
-The Uso’s dance in the ring as Main Event fades out.
Mike's Reax: Very bland and boring episode. The action didn’t do it for me at all and the matches came across like the type of matches that would be put on if the guys in the filler matches called in sick. Time to bring back the main-eventers and time to bring this show back to what it was when it launched!
