The Usos Interrupted The Social Outcasts
How often is it that we having a talking segment to kick off Main Event to set up a match later in the night? We had something similar many months ago with Kevin Owens and Jimmy Uso I believe, but I couldn't tell you the last time that happened prior to that one instance. It really went to show what WWE thinks of this Social Outcasts group. They're not the next Shield or anything along those lines, but it's great WWE is giving all four men something to do finally. We'll see how long it lasts, though, as WWE tends to give these groups focus before losing interest in them over time.
Titus O'Neil def. Stardust
We essentially saw the same exact match earlier in the week on Raw, so this was nothing new. Stardust scored an ample amount of offense only for O'Neil to score the win i.e. the same finish from Monday night. For what it's worth, I thought it was interesting Stardust brought up his past monikers in his pre-match promo, but we've seen that before and it has yet to lead anywhere, so I'm not getting my hopes up.
Tyler Breeze def. Zack Ryder
Breeze continues to flounder on WWE's smaller shows, Main Event and WWE Superstars. It's a shame considering his tremendous talents, but what's worse is that his split with Summer Rae proved to be meaningless. I'm not suggesting they should have stayed together, but that was their chance to do something of note with him, but apparently not. This was a fine showing for him, but ultimately forgettable.
The Usos def. The Social Outcasts
Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, Heath Slater and Adam Rose don't have any obvious chemistry on paper, but they worked well together here, and I was dying of laughter when they ran around the ring together. The match itself was fun for what it was and The Social Outcasts lost nothing in defeat given they're already losers. In other words, they have nothing to lose!
For whatever reason, WWE showed a little more love to Main Event this week than usual. The Social Outcasts and their match with The Usos were especially entertaining, but the rest of the show held up well. O'Neil vs. Stardust wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but it furthered their feud. Meanwhile, Breeze scored a nice win, so this episode gets a thumbs up from me.
