If someone on here ends up making a comp in the future from Main Event, I'm totally buying it. Punk/Sheamus, Cesaro/Kofi + Tag match afterwards, Miz/Ziggler, Cena/Sandow, Hell No/Rhodes Scholars, Sheamus/Ziggler, etc. Yeah, I want all that on dvd.
Dolph Ziggler v Sheamus - Main Event (1/9/13)
Yeah this was great. Got plenty of time to develop into a lengthy hard-fought battle and both guys looked really good. I find a lot of Dolph's 15+ minute matches have this formula where they go through a feeling out process, then a methodical control segment from Ziggler which usually isn't all that engaging but it's solid enough to hold your interest, then all of a sudden the match bursts into life with really good back and forth action and a great finishing stretch. It's a pretty basic formula but Ziggler's ability to shine down the stretch with his bumping and athleticism really makes it work well. Dolph fighting unsuccessfully to avoid Sheamus' clubbing blows in the ropes was perfect for Sheamus' comeback and came off as one of the best versions of that offense to me. Nice little touch. Everything after the second commercial break is awesome. Lots of sweet counters and nearfalls. The finish is good too. Nice to see something different, they don't use good countout finishes often enough. PPV quality stuff.
1. Dolph Ziggler v Sheamus - Main Event (1/9/13)
2. CM Punk v Ryback - Raw (1/7/13)
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
Yeah, I'm going to need to watch DOLPH/Sheamus. I haven't seen Main Event before. I always forget it's on. Not even sure what time or channel it's on tbh. I will need to set a reminder for Orton/CESARO, though. That could be great, especially if they're given some time.
Orton/Cesaro sounds great. I'm both relieved and overjoyed at the build Cesaro is receiving. I really like what they're doing with Main Event as well. Strong matches and a lot of focus on the midcard. I thought it was destined to be the next Superstars/Velocity/Heat.
