Re: Official WWE Main Event Weekly TV Show Discussion
I thought this was a fun episode. In fact, I almost enjoy this type of show more than Raw because we get to see a lot of performers improve when they get a chance to develop their character.
Ryback is allowed to show a different side of his personality, which is great. Also, putting him in the ring against Cesaro will definitely help in the long run... I don't think it's any accident that they've been facing off recently, since Cesaro is a tremendous worker & Ryback will learn from that just by being in there with him. I also liked the finish because it keeps both guys strong & furthers Cesaro's feud with Miz.
And finally, any time the PTP get TV time is awesome in my book. I feel they're underutilized on the main shows & I'm glad they get a chance to do their thing somewhere on TV. I also enjoyed the Tensai & Titus match - two giants slugging it out & some nice comedy when Brodus got involved. Tensai's heel character never took off, so it's nice to see them doing something different with him.
