Curtis Axel takes control of Cody Rhodes.

Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel def. Cody Rhodes
Their initial in-ring meeting on last week's SmackDown was underwhelming, but this match more than made up for it. They managed to create chemistry throughout the bout and provide some fun back-and-forth action. It received substantial amount and made Rhodes look good in defeat. Both Superstars need wins right now, but it was important for Axel to lose another non-title match for the second time this week.
The Prime Time Players def. The Real Americans
I've been enjoying the feud between these two tandems thus far and am proud of WWE for actually putting focus on their tag team division for once. While the crowd might not have cared for Titus O'Neil's bout with Jack Swagger on this week's Raw, this crown was much more engaged in this tag team affair. The Prime Time Players are getting over nicely and the various victories will only boost their momentum.
Kofi Kingston def. Fandango by Disqualification
These two work well together and they provided a nice matchup here. I took this as their rubber match in their mini-feud from a few weeks ago, but that was never mentioned on commentary. It wasn't a great match, but it was going well until the asinine finish. It seemed to come out of nowhere and didn't make any sense, as I don't see the logic in protecting Fandango at this point.
This was the most wrestling-heavy edition of WWE Main Event in quite some time. I mean, there aren't usually any promos on the show or anything, but all three of the matches on this week's episode were worth watching and were given time to shine. Aside from the lackluster finish to the Kingston vs. Fandango bout, all the right people went over and the action was entertaining as a whole. Nothing was worth going out of your way to watch again, but it was a fun hour of wrestling for those who tuned in.
