REVIEWOverall, a very lackluster episode of Main Event. It was probably the most irrelevant edition since the show started airing live on the Network. The best part was seeing Barrett keep up his momentum coming off a victory on Raw the night before. The first match with Los Matadores and El Torito was silly. I don't know why they didn't just make it a 6 man tag match with Torito and Hornswoggle wrestling on their respective teams. The Divas battle royal was painful to watch. It was extremely sloppy although I was happy to see Tamina pick up the victory. As for Emma, she was better off staying on NXT because she is being wasted on the main roster. Anyway, Tamina and Paige should be a decent match at Extreme Rules. Big Show and Jack Swagger put on a good performance. I'm not sure what they're going to do with Swagger and Colter from this point forward, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a fairly heated rivalry with Cesaro.
