Antonio Cesaro battle back against Dolph Ziggler.

Dolph Ziggler def. Antonio Cesaro by Disqualificaiton
What I love most about face turns is that we always get fresh matches out of them, and Ziggler vs. Cesaro was a prime example. These two hadn't met in a one-on-one match prior to this show, so with that in mind, it definitely delivered. Cesaro's nailed his flashy offense while Ziggler sold for it accordingly. I'm fine with the disqualification finish simply due to the fact that it saves the match for later down the line. The post-match attack from Cesaro and Swagger was awkward, but at least it helped Ziggler garner a positive reaction from the crowd.
Tons of Funk and The Great Khali vs. Team Rhodes Scholars and Heath Slater
I didn't have high hopes for this match to begin with, so I wasn't disappointed with the ending result. Of course, it was a throwaway bout, but it consisted of harmless action that didn't do damage to anyone involved. However, I question the move to have Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow lose to Khali and Tons of Funk. Maybe it helps build towards their inevitable split, but if not, then it was rather pointless.
After two solid weeks of WWE Main Event, I was a bit disappointed by this edition. Sure, the opening match was entertaining and very well wrestled, but the second match is usually more meaningful than it was on this episode. Also, ending the show with two Raw recaps was overbearing and the wrong call, especially since one of which was the firing of Vickie Guerrero. If anything, watch this edition only for the opening match.
