Erik Rowan and Luke Harper def. The Prime Time Players
By this point, these two teams have clashed multiple times in the past, and it is almost always the same exact match every time. The Wyatt Family dominate most of the matchup, only for The Prime Time Players to get the hot tag but ultimately come up short. That being said, it was a formulaic tag team bout designed to showcase The Wyatt Family. The ending outcome was never in doubt, but The Wyatt Family couldn't have lost here after Harper lost to CM Punk on this week's Raw.
Nikki Bella def. Alicia Fox
I have been thoroughly impressed by how much The Bella Twins have improved in the ring in recent months. Granted, their in-ring skills aren't picture perfect, but their matches have at least become tolerable. Nikki performed well against Fox and the two had an exceptional matchup. It wasn't too short, but it didn't overstay its welcome, either. The Bella Twins received a nice reaction upon entertaining, so I am glad to see them gradually getting over as babyfaces.
The Usos def. Hunico and Camacho
At a time when the tag team division is hotter than it has been in years, it is great to see Hunico and Camacho back on television after a lengthy absence. They can add a lot to the division with their high-flying offense and unique attributes as a team. The match itself was solid and received much more time than I expected it to, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It is blatantly obvious that The Usos were going over, but Hunico and Camacho looked good in defeat. It was also nice to see the bike removed from the entrance of Hunico and Camacho, as I always found that stupid and stereotypical of Latinos.
After the train wreck that was last week's show, this was an immense improvement. While none of the matches were extremely entertaining, they all served a purpose and did their part in highlighting the tag team and Divas divisions, respectively. Furthermore, this was one of the better episodes of WWE Main Event I have seen in recent months and was a fun hour of wrestling. By the way, what ever happened to Big E Langton vs. Curtis Axel?
