The 48th edition of WWE Main Event came to you from the Thomas & Mack Center at the UNLV in Las Vegas, NV. Main Event would feature a battle between two sons of Hall of Famers as reigning Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel, with Paul Heyman in his corner, would go one-on-one with Cody Rhodes in a non-title match.
- Non-Title: Curtis Axel def. Cody Rhodes by pin following the Axel Cutter.
- The Prime Time Players def. The Real Americans by Titus O’Neil pinning Jack Swagger following the Clash of the Titus.
- Kofi Kingston def. Fandango by DQ after Summer Rae interferes.
With jobber turned part-time commentator Alex Riley filling in for The Miz on commentary for some reason, the opening match of the night would see “the man of 1,000 names, but only one gimmick”, Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel, with Paul Heyman in his corner, facing a guy who deserves better in Cody Rhodes in a non-title match. In a finish that could have been predicted without watching the match, Curtis Axel would hit the Axel Cutter on Cody Rhodes en route to picking up the win.
The “gee, I wonder why they are getting a face push” team of The Prime Time Players, Darren Young & Titus O’Neil, would face their rival tag team, The Real Americans, Jack Swagger & Antonio Cesaro, with Zeb Colter in their corner and, surprisingly, Colter does not speak. In the end, it was Titus O’Neil hitting the Clash of the Titus on Jack Swagger, pinning Swagger to pick up the win for The Prime Time Players.
Then it was time for the main event of WWE Main Event as the man who is, somehow, less popular since he returned, Kofi Kingston, went one-on-one with Fandango, with the real star of the show, Summer Rae, in his corner. During the match, Summer Rae would grab the ankle of Kofi Kingston and, in a delayed reaction, the referee decides to ring the bell for the disqualification, giving the peculiar win to Kofi Kingston.
