WWE Main Event Recap (W/ Video): Christian Vs. Sandow, Cara Vs. Swagger, Hawkins' Biker Gimmick
- The opening theme kicks us off this week and leads directly to Christian's entrance. Damien Sandow cuts a promo during his entrance. It's the usual, albeit good, stuff from Sandow.
Christian vs. Damien Sandow
They trade some holds but Christian finally gets it going with the first decided advantage. Christian holds on to a headlock and then gets 2 consecutive near falls. Sandow begs off for a breather. By the way, Sandow is wearing grey tights instead of his signature purple. Sandow does a cartwheel and comes back with intensity. Cody Rhodes defends the cartwheel from commentary and says it took Christian off his game.
Sandow comes out of the corner but Christian face-plants him for 2. Christian kicks Sandow to the floor and sends him back in; Christian goes up top but Sandow moves and Christian kisses the canvas; Sandow gets 2. We return from a commercial and it is still pretty much back and forth. More near falls. Sandow hits the Elbow of Disdain and gets a 2 count. Sandow fights with Christian up top but is able to bring him down in a superplex. The ref counts as the slowly get up. They hit a double clothesline and Christian gets up first.
Christian starts a flurry but gets only 2 on the cover. Sandow avoids Christian and dives into an impressive neckbreaker for 2. Christian goes for the Killswitch but Sandow counters and only gets a 2. Christian connects with the finisher and gets the pin.
Winner by pin: Christian
Jack Swagger vs. Sin Cara
The lights go down and Cara starts off strong and fast. Swagger quickly slows him down with vicious knees to the gut. Cara starts to fly again and lowers the ropes for Swagger to fall out. Swagger catches Cara on the follow-up and drives him into the security wall. Cara makes it back in the ring as we go to a commercial.
Swagger hits a big splash out of the corner and covers his heart. Swagger continues with the punishment. Cara mounts another comeback and connects with a crossbody for 2. Swagger hits a vicious powerslam and applies the Patriot Lock as Cara immediately taps.

- Big E Langston makes his entrance led by AJ Lee. Another Wyatt promo runs during the break. AJ has joined commentary. AJ Styles has joined Aces & 8's and he makes his entrance. Oh, wait... That is Curt Hawkins... But he is still in a biker cut. Odd. He actually looks like Mr. Anderson.
Big E Langston vs. Curt Hawkins
Big E takes control with power moves but the focus of the segment is obviously AJ on commentary as she talks about her and Ziggler's relationship. She basically says they are going through some things. Hawkins gets in some offense but Big E quickly shuts him down. Langston hits a leaping splash to the back of Hawkins and takes down the straps. He hits the Big Ending for the win.
Winner by pin: Big E Langston
