Main Event Report 10-7-2014

First off, I'd like to apologize for there being no Raw Report yesterday. I had an incredibly busy day and was unable to get to it and for that, I'm sorry. I'm back with the Main Event Report however, so let's dive right in. We start with the Intercontinental Title being on the line. I guess a pin and some DQ wins over Mark Henry earn you a shot as Bo Dallas took on Dolph Ziggler. Cesaro is on commentary for this and, even though moving him from the US Title to the Intercontinental Title is lazy booking, his eventual shot at Dolph should produce a good match. Cesaro is great at putting over both guys on commentary and Dolph wins in about nine minutes. The best match of Bo's main roster career so far.

A recap of the Today Show on Raw is show, which nobody cares for. Tyson Kidd asks Kane for a match because he's more than just "Nattie's husband". Not if you ask the NXT crowd. Kane laughs and says that Nattie already asked for a match for him. Nikki Bella came out next with socks that said "Tough Tatas". It would be her, Cameron and SummerLay in a four on one handicap match. I'm still not sure if SummerLay are officially faces or heels. Brie Bella comes out and actually has a decent little match. Nikki uses the numbers advantage to hit the Rack Attack on Brie and win. The feud continues and this was a good way to do so as it plays into Nikki being put into handicap matches while Brie was out.

Tyson Kidd's headphones are back, making their first appearance since NXT TakeOver: Fatal Four Way. I love it. Zeb Colter badmouths Tyson's manhood saying that it's kept neatly in Natalie's small purse. Tyson Kidd vs. Jack Swagger is a match that I don't think we've seen before and I'd love to see them get more time. This only went about three minutes and Tyson won with a rollup. I enjoyed this. We also get some Raw recaps of Breast Cancer stuff and then the Ambrose comedy.

The last match here on Main Event furthered the WWE Tag Team Title angle as Stardust, along with Goldust, took on I believe Jey Uso, with Jimmy. As usual on Main Event, we were treated to a solid little match that did it's job. I would've closed with Dolph/Bo as it was better, but this wasn't bad. Jey wins in about six minutes with a top rope splash. Another fun episode of Main Event that earns this show a 6.5/10.
