3MB def. Tons of Funk (3-on-2 Handicap Match)
With both of these tandems being absolute jokes, it was hard to care about anyone involved in the match. The action was decent, but nothing notable in the slightest. The commentators did a nice job of conveying the message of how Tons of Funk had the weight advantage over 3MB despite being against the odds. The ending outcome with 3MB going over was surprising, but neither team couldn't mean any less at the moment, so it won't make me take 3MB any more seriously. Whatever happened to Drew McIntyre returning to his "Chosen One" gimmick?
Tamina Snuka def. Aksana
Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't Tamina and Aksana both heels? That being said, it was hard for the crowd to cheer for either competitor, but the match was fine for what it was. Aksana's offense was actually better than expected given her limited in-ring skills, but in the end it was nothing more than a showcase for Tamina. I like her pairing with AJ, but wouldn't be surprised to see them eventually part ways in order to feud over the Divas Championship.
Big E Langston def. Zack Ryder
These two have collided in one-on-one action in the past, but to my knowledge this was their best outing yet. The fact the bout received 10 minutes was pleasantly surprising and allowed both competitors to showcase their tremendous talents. Ryder wasn't completely dominated, but it was more or less a glorified squash match for Langston. Langston has a lot of untapped potential, so I hope he either turns babyface soon or is actually utilized correctly.
While none of the matches were necessarily bad, none of them were worth watching, either. The opening match was medicore and the subsequent matches were decent yet forgettable. That was the overall theme of this week's edition of Main Event, not to mention the fact that more Raw recaps were shown than usual. This show has been on the air for over a year now, and it is sad to see it reduced to WWE Superstars 2.0 after being a fun alternative early on.
