The WWE always tends to put together a very solid show for Main Event, and on Wednesday Night, that trend continued.
It's not exactly a surprise, either.
After a spectacular pay-per-view and follow up Raw, the WWE creative team is clicking on all cylinders right now, and with The Shield and Antonio Cesaro both making appearances, it would be difficult for the weekly show not to continue being good television.
Let's take a look at what went down from the Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio.
The Shield defeats Usos and Justin Gabriel
The Usos spent the last month mostly building up wins on Main Event shows, leading many to believe that they would soon establish themselves as the next threat for the Shield's tag team titles.
This tweet by the WWE only further strengthened that belief:
Wednesday's match, although won by the Shield, should fuel the speculation.
It was an exciting, back-and-forth match that featured solid offense from both sides. Jimmy and Jey got their moments to shine, came close to winning and didn't look weak or overmatched despite going up against the hottest trio in the company.
Moreover, in the end, it was Dean Ambrose who pinned Justin Gabriel, leaving the storyline open for the tag teams.
It will be intriguing to see if this turns into anything in the future, as there is plenty of in-ring potential with these two duos.
Antonio Cesaro defeats Sin Cara
Antonio Cesaro with Zeb Colter has a lot of potential.
The Swiss Sensation has always had a terrific blend of power and technical ability inside the ring, but as a heel, he has never been able to draw much heat on the mic. Colter changes that:
It's still unclear where the seemingly inevitable push will take Cesaro leading up to Money in the Bank, but his match on Wednesday with Sin Cara was up-tempo, highly entertaining and well done:
Cesaro is clearly on the way up.
Kaitlyn defeats Aksana
This wasn't an overly long match, but it's good to see the WWE giving the Divas—and especially Kaitlyn—some air time.
Kaitlyn and AJ proved on Payback that if they are simply given time to operate, they are capable of putting on a good show. Now if the WWE starts giving some opportunities to other ladies, such as Aksana, the Divas division has lots of potential.
At the very least, this is the first time in a while there has been intrigue surrounding the division.
