Big Show is fading quickly and looks like he nearly passed out. Big Show somehow gets out and gozzles Jack Swagger. The gozzle push and a knockout punch for Big Show. 1..2..3.
OFFICIAL RESULT: Big Show @ 7:00 via pin MATCH THOUGHTS: This was match of the night simply for getting enough time. The match was pretty decent and Big Show sold everything really well. The only complaint would be Big Show staying in the Patriot Lock too long.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Decent little show tonight. It was nothing too extraordinary just an average episode of Main Event. Thanks to any who read the recap.
