I haven't seen anyone throw something up regarding tonight's WWE Main Event telecast so I thought I would.
WWE Main Event has a very different feel from RAW or SmackDown. Now, that's not good or bad per-se, but it is definitely different. There's a LOT of talking... and while you might think that that's bad, a healthy portion of it was directly related to the event/match itself. There was a short interview with CM Punk/Paul Heyman and Sheamus before the match, and Sheamus was given the mic immediately after the match and then it went to CM Punk/Paul Heyman again in the back.
The commentary was fairly good in terms of what was said, it was a lot like classic commentary from years gone past. On RAW and SmackDown a lot of commentary time is given to upcoming segments and things unrelated to the match, but for this one commentary if I recall was strictly about the match, and about its participants. Miz I can do without at the commentary table. He's not horrible, but he sounds like a child, and you can tell he's "green" when trying to bounce off of the other commentator.
The most phenomenal thing about the show was the two video packages they did for CM Punk and Sheamus before their match. It reminded me of what they were doing with John Cena and The Rock for WM28. The Sheamus one wasn't nearly as good as CM Punk's, and I attribute that to not believing that Sheamus' package really represents him as a person. Punk's video package was 100% him and totally real, and I was sitting there wondering why WWE doesn't do stuff like this on their flagship show. I hate to keep going back to this but I distinctly remember when they did one for Justin Gabriel maybe a year or two ago, about him being in South Africa and stuff, and I thought that stood out.
If you're interested in storyline continuation with RAW and SmackDown, this probably isn't worth the time, but I'm definitely tuning in next week and hoping they keep the same format with the pre-match interviews, the post-match interviews and the video packages.
Oh, and the rest of the show was a little bit about Hell in a Cell, hyping next week's Main Event(Randy Orton vs Big Show), the breast cancer thing, and a short tag match between International Airstrike(I think that's what they're called, Gabriel and Kidd) and Ryder/Santino.
I think it definitely could've been much worse, but there is room for improvement. Did anyone else catch the show tonight? Thoughts?
