WWE Tag Team Champions Gold & Stardust and The Usos Participated in 'How Well Do You Know Your Bro?'
I refuse to even bother giving my (expert?) analysis of this, as it just might have been one of the dumbest I have seen on WWE TV in a long time. Everything about it was ridiculous and I can't believe the people who wrote this thought it was a good idea. Needless to say, it was a weak way of furthering this feud going into Hell in a Cell, and if anything, it probably made me less excited for their upcoming match. It's almost as if it was intentionally bad because you need to really try in order to get a segment that horrendous.
Tyson Kidd def. R-Truth
This was essentially the exact same match we saw from these two last week and it was fine for what it was. It's just incredibly hard to get invested in anything R-Truth is involved in these days. He's so irrelevant that I take nothing he does seriously. That said, I continue to enjoy what they're doing with Kidd right now and am glad he's getting more TV time. It was nice for him to get his win back over Truth, but I'd like to see him engage in a real feud with someone sooner rather than later.
Big E def. Bo Dallas
What the hell has been up with Dallas of late? He had his undefeated streak snapped by R-Truth (don't even get me started) a few months back and it's been all downhill for him since. He engaged in a forgettable feud with Jack Swagger for a while and now he's back to losing random matches. Did his three wins over Mark Henry accomplish anything? This match lasted all of three or four minutes and I can't say it did anything to benefit Big E, either, considering he's hardly on TV. What a meaningless match.
Seth Rollins def. Jack Swagger
We saw this exact same match last week on Raw, but I can't complain about enjoyable wrestling. They work well together and have good in-ring chemistry, so it wasn't a complete lost cause. The ending outcome was never really in doubt, but it was a nice final momentum boost for Rollins as he heads into his Hell in a Cell match with Dean Ambrose.
With the featured matches having so little of significance, this was easily one of the worst editions of Main Event in recent memory. Rollins vs. Swagger was solid, but everything else ranged from fine to forgettable to atrocious. There's nothing worth going out of your way to see from this show, as it did virtually nothing to get viewers excited for Sunday's pay-per-view.
