Expect to see some of the midcard storylines continue. I am staying optimistic after last night's awful Raw (besides when The Rock showed up of course) and hope that we get somewhat of a decent showing. Please, for the love of God, no more El Torito and Mini Gator.
We get an Intercontinental Title match right at the start! Didn't see this one coming. I am pleasantly surprised as Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring. Cesaro is on commentary.
IC TITLE MATCH: Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Bo Dallas
I love Bo Dallas; this dude is hilarious. The crowd is firmly behind Ziggler. Bo is doing fairly well here in the beginning; after all, he beat Mark Henry three times. Ziggler hits a couple arm drags and misses the patent elbow. Bo takes control as he stomps away at Ziggler. Dolph hits the splash in the corner, goes for a boot, but Bo blocks it and tosses Dolph over the top rope.
Is it weird that I want Bo to win this one? I mean, we all know he won't but for some reason I think he would look good with the IC Title. Both men are down as the ref begins the 10 count. Dolph is hitting all his patent moves. He misses The Famouser as Bo counters and covers for a 2-count. Ziggler hits a DDT and gets a 2-count of his own. Bo hits a double arm DDT for another 2-count. Bo tries to roll Dolph up by grabbing the rope, the ref breaks the pin, and Ziggler hits Zig-Zag for the win.
Winner: Dolph Ziggler (c) via pinfall
Why are we being forced to relive one of the worst segments in Raw history? No one wanted to see Kathie Lee and Hoda. No one. Even Adam Rose looked miserable out there.
Tyson Kidd talks to Kane backstage and demands a match. Kane says Natalya already asked him if Tyson could have a match with Jack Swagger.
MATCH: Nikki Bella, Summer Rae, Layla, & Cameron vs. Brie Bella
Summer starts the match, Brie kicks her ass, and here comes Layla. Layla hits a DDT and Brie kicks out at 2. I'm going to be a typical guy and say how hard it is to actually concentrate on the match. The amount of sexy in the ring is unreal. Cameron tags in and is in control. Brie hits the running knee followed by a missile dropkick. Nikki tags herself in, hits Brie with her own running knee, then pins her with the torture rack.
Winners: Nikki Bella, Summer Rae, Layla, & Cameron
Recap of The Rock's surprise return. Yeah, you're damn right I marked out! I fan-girled so hard you have no idea. The Rock vs. Rusev for Wrestlemania 31 please.
MATCH: Tyson Kidd vs. Jack Swagger
Zeb Colter cuts a promo before the match and says Tyson keeps his manhood in Natalya's purse. Kidd starts aggressive. Kidd is firmly in control until Swagger flips him flat on his face. Swagger misses the Swagger Bomb and tries to turn it into the Patriot Lock. Tyson counters with an awesome pin and wins! Nice.
Winner: Tyson Kidd via pinfall
Raw Rebound time. I love this Dean Ambrose and John Cena feud. Cena HAS to put Ambrose over. There's just no other option. It has to be Ambrose vs. Rollins in a Hell in a Cell. I'm sure Cena vs. Rollins wouldn't be bad but Ambrose vs. Rollins has much more emotional investment; it would also be the better match by far.
Stardust is in single's competition next.
MATCH: Stardust w/Goldust vs. Jey Uso w/Jimmy Uso
Jey is in control and hits Uso Crazy early. Stardust regains stamina and hits a neckbreaker for a 2-count. Things just became really slow, nothing important is happening. Stardust is still in control. I'm surprised this is so slow paced. Jey regains momentum as he nails the Samoan drop. Jey goes up top for a splash but Stardust knocks him off. Jey gets back in the ring, fights back, and hits the splash for the win.
Winner: Jey Uso via pinfall
This was a very decent edition of Main Event. It wasn't amazing, but definitely not horrible. There was no sign of El Torito or Mini Gator so that in itself is a victory for everyone. Match of the night has to go to Dolph and Bo. Their match was the most entertaining by far.
