WWE Tag Team Champions Prime Time Players def. The Ascension (Non-title)
After a few entertaining matches from these two teams in recent weeks, they were back to delivering the same formulaic tag bout on this show. Ascension relied on too many rest holds and Titus O'Neil made his usual hot tag, so this wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I'm surprised there aren't any other heel duos in the tag team division that the Players can be paired up with, so hopefully that problem is fixed in the near future. I've enjoyed the Players' reign as tag champs so far, but I have a feeling it comes to an end this Sunday at Battleground.
Zack Ryder def. Adam Rose
Man, how many times did we see this match earlier this year? Rose continues to cut the same damn promo before all of his matches, and he's not garnering any true heat from them. Rosa Mendes was absent from programming this week, so that was a plus. The match wasn't terrible, but rather forgettable and no different than the million matches they've contested against each other in the past. At the very least, it didn't last too long as the abrupt finish cut the match short.
R-Truth def. Bo Dallas
Truth tends to bore me years, regardless of who his opponent is. I got a kick out of Dallas interrupting Truth's entrance with his pre-match promo, but the match itself was a total snooze fest. It felt like it would never end, especially considering how predictable the finish was. Truth mocking the king gimmick is terrible and I have my fingers crossed that his feud with King Barrett ends with their upcoming match.
Other than an appearance from the WWE Tag Team Champions (which isn't that rare considering how frequently they're in action on the show), this was a very mediocre edition of Main Event. All three matches were either repeats of what we've seen before, complete wastes of time or both. You're better off skipping this show and holding out for a future episode that isn't as lifeless.
