Main Event Report 11-18-14

Much like the Authority opening Raw every week, I feel like Goldust and Stardust open Main Event consistently. To be fair, The Usos did come out first. This was match #437 in the non-stop series between them but it features Los Matadores and Miz and Damien Mizdow on commentary. This would build towards their upcoming Fatal Four Way Tag Team Title match at Survivor Series. They got about 11 minutes and did their usual thing. It was good, but just super repetitive. Nothing of note really happened on commentary except for Michael Cole taking a selfie with El Torito.

A new match for Survivor Series is announced and it will be a (mostly) Total Divas showdown. Paige, Summer Rae, Cameron and Layla will take on Emma, Alicia Fox, Naomi and Natalya. I would like to see the heels win on Sunday but that's very doubtful. Anyway, Paige took on Alicia Fox in yet another rematch. They met at Payback and twice in England. They have good chemistry and made the most of their four minutes. Also, I can see through Paige's bottoms somewhat, which made it just a bit better. Alicia wins with a rollup. Decent stuff.

Mixed tag matches are so 2013. It's all about the Interspecies tag matches and we get one here. Adam Rose and the Bunny take on Tyson Kidd and Natalya. Of course, Kidd amazes once again. While Natalya flirts with the Bunny for some reason, Kidd and Rose play their heel roles well. Kidd wins following a cheap shot and Sharpshooter on the Bunny. Rose could have broken it up but he decided against it. We move to the main event, where Bray Wyatt takes on Jack Swagger. This was another solid yet unspectacular match. It's odd that Swagger was basically killed by the Curb Stomp and the Authority, so he couldn't make it to Survivor Series, but he can be on the show before it? Strange. Bray wins.

In the end, I felt like the effort of this episode wasn't great. They put on Usos/Dust Brothers and Fox/Paige, which we have seen a bunch. The Bunny stuff is lame but Tyson is golden. Bray/Swagger was solid. Basically, nothing on the show was bad but nothing was really must see. 5/10.
