OFFICIAL RESULT: Emma @ 4:00 via pin MATCH THOUGHTS: The match was decent for the little time it got. The biggest question though is what they are doing with people losing constantly yet getting more character than other people who win constantly. Alicia Fox keeps losing and throwing tantrums.

OFFICIAL RESULT: No Contest @ 13:00 via double countout MATCH THOUGHTS: If this feud continues the double countout result is the right one. The match itself was hot and got the crowd into the show. Great match between these two. Let's hope this feud continues on.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Good main event tonight. I have few complaints. I only hate that they do not use the full hour allotted for Main Event. The other two matches could have used a few more minutes; nonetheless, good show. Check out Cesaro and Sheamus if you want to see hard hitting wrestling. They should stick with the three match format because it makes the show far more interesting. Also, thanks to anyone who read the recap.
