What should have been the usual night of action-packed battles featuring WWE Superstars on WWE Main Event turned into the Ryback show. “The Big Guy” made sure the entire WWE Universe had its eyes on him as he marched to the ring during every match.

Aside from Ryback’s strange attention-grabbing ploy, there was plenty of star-studded action on Wednesday night. Kofi Kingston took on former Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel and Sin Cara clashed with Damien Sandow. 3MB had quite the tall task on their hands, as they not only faced The Prime Time Players, but the high-flying trio of Los Matadores and El Torito.

Kofi Kingston def. Curtis Axel
The Wildcat is riding high after his huge victory over WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton on Raw. A big win like that makes the target on Kingston’s back even bigger, though. Curtis Axel definitely wanted to put himself back in the title hunt with a win over Kingston on WWE Main Event.

Though Axel was able to temporarily slow down Kingston with a few well-placed elbows, Kofi soon rebounded, leaping up, over and around his opponent to gain the upper hand. The former Intercontinental Champion soon focused his attack on Kingston’s back, hoping to keep The Wildcat from taking flight. Kingston used his agility to avoid being driven into the unforgiving apron, leaping back into the ring before darting out with a dive through the ropes.

Kofi’s time on the attack did not last long, as Axel grounded him once again, landing a snap mare reminiscent of his father, WWE Hall of Famer Mr. Perfect.  Wrenching Kingston’s arm, Axel got Kofi back to a standing position before drilling him into the mat with a back suplex. The third-generation Superstar looked to be in control of things as he pummeled Kingston.

However, The Wildcat could not be tamed on this night. Kingston battled back, landing a twisting dropkick off the middle rope to stun Axel. Kofi unleashed a flurry of strikes on Axel before connecting with the Boom Drop.

It looked as though Axel had the bout won after evading Trouble in Paradise at ringside. Kingston kicked the steel ring post instead, a sickening thud echoing through the arena. The third-generation Superstar tossed Kingston back into the ring, only for Kingston to use momentum to roll up Axel and claim victory.

The Wildcat was ready to pounce as Ryback’s music hit after the bell and the monster stomped to the ring. Surprisingly, “The Big Guy” simply trudged a lap around ringside and back up the ramp, leaving everyone confused.
