Yeah, i really like when Main Event opens by setting up a story for the main event of the show. I love one-show storylines, that strings a show together from start to finish. They've done a good job of that lately, by setting up something in the opening segment. Then they interview the two competitors between undercard matches before they meet in the main event. It actually really surprises me that they put that much effort into the show.

I thought the international TV rights for WWE Main Event would have been sorted by now.

The referee made the right call stopping the Rusev match.

I'm hopeful that the PPVs being blacked out in India means they could then black out Main Event in the UK and return it normally.

Watched the Becky vs Sasha match on Main Event and it was an okay/good match. It was basically the Takeover match with less heat. The crowd was pretty quiet throughout the match.

The live reports said the crowd were pretty loud for it. Raw and Smackdown were mixed really weird last week too. Obviously this was a good match especially for Divas standards, but it was almost underwhelming in a way knowing what they can really do with storyline support and better build. Becky pretty much never appealing to the crowd annoyed me no end in that match. Maybe WWE producers have told her not to but I made sure that the BIG APPEAL message got through to Becky in any case.

Bryon Saxton did a good job coming up with a story for the match citing Becky's lack of confidence playing off real life deal. Prior to Becky getting on NXT TV you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who supported her more down here

Given Becky and Sasha's current lot/status in WWE this was a pretty nice way to mark the six month anniversary of their Takeover match and the three year anniversary of Becky's WWE tryout in any event. I love the style Becky works in her matches with Sasha as her normal TV 1-2-3 Kid tribute offence does little for me.

I've really warmed up to Bryon Saxton. He really gets the storylines across on commentary genuinely cause of how campy he is but in a good way. Tom Phillips, Saxton and Jimmy Uso have become my favorite commentary team in WWE cause of Main Event. Didn't like that Cole was on for the last show but I understand why.

Tyler Breeze/Swagger wasn't much of a match - only went about five minutes - but was basically just the C-Show MVP of 2015 welcoming Ty to the Friday afternoon show.

Glad i watched Main Event.. this was such a fun hour of TV. Owens/Swagger was good and Ryback/Rusev was surprisingly great!

Dying at Breeze jobbing to Titus O'Neil on superstars. What a geek.

Ryback/Rusev is my WWE match of the month. I'm going ***3/4on it. Rusev looked as good as ever and that was easily the best I have ever seen Ryback work a match. He brought the backpack stunner out (which the announce team whiffed on) and hit a bunch of shit he normally doesn't. I would not mind a prolonged program between these guys and see what else they can do.

Neville/Viktor was too short to amount to much on Superstars this past week, but I would like to see more Viktor singles matches.

There is a Heath Slater/Zack Ryder match on 2/9 Main Event that goes about ten minutes and is very good. Contender for the C-Show top ten of 2016.

It's on the Network now. They have up to the 2/16 show.

Breeze/Ryback was a whole lot of nothing.

It's so weird how all these guys basically don't exist outside of the C-Shows.

Breeze. Ryder. Fandango. Riley. Young. Ascension.

If you don't watch Main Event it would be as if they aren't even in WWE. You would think with five hours of main show to kill they could do something with more than a handful of people.
