Langston stalks Gabriel and it’s time for a BIG ENDING!
Winner via Big Ending: Big E Langston.
– Del Rio v. Cody Rhodes as your main event was one heck of a match. Del Rio as this ruthless a-hole and Cody playing the face in peril throughout this match worked wonders, and the crowd was solidly behind Rhodes.
– Are the Usos over, or are they OVER? I never thought I’d see the day, but I guess you would have to thank the Shield for that rub. That being said…
– The tag match was quite phenomenal. Heath and Drew as those stoogey bumpers really made the Usos look better, as if they really need to look any better than they do.
– Big E Langston is a beast. I’m extremely hyped for Big E Langston to do big things, and this match just proved it further. While it was simply a showcase match, it was an excellent showing from everyone involved, even AJ, whose facial expressions really added to the match.
– I’m not looking forward to Brock Lesnar v. CM Punk. At least not as much as I’m looking forward to John Cena v. Daniel Bryan. Taking my fandom towards John Cena away from the equation, this is the biggest match of the careers of both men. There will be a paradigm shift. You have your known variables, John Cena and Daniel Bryan, as well as Triple H, but what about Orton, Stephanie and Vince? Where will they play into this? There is a true air of mystique around this match, and I like it.
And this is it for WWE Main Event this week!
