The Miz Hosted 'Miz TV' with The Usos
It's so typical of WWE to change something they initially advertised for Main Event at the last minute. It's one of the many reasons people don't take this show seriously and take everything they advertise with a grain of salt. This was far less newsworthy than an appearance from Mark Henry and a lot more pointless. I enjoy The Usos as much as anyone, but they've been overexposed as of late and this segment fell flat.
The Usos def. The Miz and Damien Mizdow
The two teams worked as good of a match as they did on Raw. It received a substantial amount of time, but it felt like a longer version of their previous encounter. The worst part about it was how the finish was exactly the same. Twin Magic is bad enough for a pair of babyfaces once, but twice? Come on, really? I can't complain too much since it's better than seeing The Usos in another six-man tag team match against Gold and Stardust, and at least it'll (hopefully) lead to Miz and Mizdow attempting it as well.
Paige def. Natalya
I was glad to see Paige and Natalya actually get decent time for once. Part of that has to due with the fact it took place on Main Event and not on Raw or SmackDown, but if that's what it takes, I'm content. Granted, most of the focus was on Tyson Kidd on commentary, but he was an absolute riot and he continues to shine as a heel. I'd like to see more of him on Raw, but his recent appearances on Main Event have been golden.
United States Champion Sheamus def. Bo Dallas (Non-title)
This was essentially nothing more than a glorified squash match, but it was fun while it lasted. If nothing else, it was a fresh matchup and not a retread of something we've seen a thousand times already. Dallas had a nice showing and I just wish WWE was doing more with him. Sheamus, on the other hand, isn't doing anything for me as champion. He hasn't been compelling in forever and he is in desperate need of a heel turn.
Noting of note occurred on this week's edition of Main Event, but it wasn't the worst episode to sit through. All three matches were either good or solid, making for an enjoyable hour of wrestling. WWE not delivering on their promised interview with Mark Henry was disappointing, though, yet not surprising.
