The fifth edition of WWE Main Event came to you, on Halloween Night, from the Cumberland County Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, NC. Three nights after losing to Randy Orton at Hell in a Cell, Alberto Del Rio would have a shot at redemption as “The Mexican Aristocrat” teamed with The Prime Time Players to face the team of “The Viper” Randy Orton, Sin Cara, & Rey Mysterio in a 6-Man Tag Match!
- 6-Man Tag: Randy Orton, Sin Cara, & Rey Mysterio def. Alberto Del Rio & The Prime Time Players by Randy Orton pinning Alberto Del Rio following the RKO.
- Wade Barrett def. Tyson Kidd by pin following the Souvenir Elbow.
The show kicks off with an update on the man who has become known as the “rogue referee”, Brad Maddox, as Michael Cole & John “Bradshaw” Layfield reveal that Maddox has been located. The rogue referee has been suspended indefinitely and has been summoned to WWE Headquarters to appear before a Board of Inquiry on Thursday.
The opening match of the night was a big one as, in 6-Man Tag action, “The Viper” Randy Orton teamed with Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara to face “The Mexican Aristocrat” Alberto Del Rio & The Prime Time Players. In the end, it was a hurricanrana by Sin Cara that set Alberto Del Rio for the 619 from Rey Mysterio and, finally, Randy Orton plants Del Rio with the RKO en route to picking up the win for his team.
“The Bareknuckle Brawler” was in action on Main Event as Wade Barrett went one-on-one with Tyson Kidd. In the end, it was Wade Barrett putting Tyson Kidd down with the Souvenir Elbow en route to picking up an impressive win. After the match, Wade Barrett says that he is not surprised that Sheamus lost his World Heavyweight Title at Hell in a Cell, saying that, if Sheamus ever defended that title against him, then Barrett would be the champion, not Big Show. This brings out the former champion himself, Sheamus, who says that he simply does not like Wade Barrett and he cannot wait to step into the ring with Big Show again. Sheamus continues that, in the meantime, he has no problem putting Barrett in his place. Sheamus then challenges Barrett to a match on Main Event next week and Barrett reminds Sheamus that next week’s show is in his home country of England and he does not lose in England. Sheamus then decides not to wait until next week as the former champion rushes the ring, but Wade Barrett manages to dodge the Brogue Kick before making a quick escape from the ring!
