WWE MAIN EVENT 8.5.14
Alberto Del Rio enters the ring to a good ovation. He notes that we are a few weeks ago from Mexico. He addresses the crowd in Spanish (sadly, I do not know Spanish and cannot translate). The crowd seems into what Del Rio is saying. He says thank you all of you, for your support over the years. Jack Swagger's music interrupts.
Zeb Colter demands that the music is cut. Zeb didn't understand a word he said to boos. Zeb says we speak English where he comes from not Spanish, Spanglish, or Mexican. Zeb says he might as well be in Russia with the Mexican flag in the ring.
Del Rio addresses Colter and says he cannot think of a better place to have a fight. Colter compares Del Rio to Rusev. The crowd still goes along with the We the People chant.

OFFICIAL RESULT: AJ Lee @ 3:00 via submission MATCH THOUGHTS: That was great for the 2 or 3 minutes it lasted. They really should have given that more time. I think an extended match between these two could turn out to be great. Either way decent match for what it was.
AJ is interviewed after the match. She wants to tell us a fairytale. An adorable woman became a Queen after winning the Divas title. Then an evil witch came and stole her throne from her. AJ says she has to be her own white knight. She came back and took what belonged to her and ruined Paige's fairytale.
Paige is thrilled to see AJ back on her feet. Paige can be her white knight because they belong in the ring together at Summerslam because Paige respects and loves her. They are frienenmies. She will take her championship back at Summerslam and they can be friends.
AJ likes her style but she won't like how the story ends. AJ calls Paige her crumpet and says this is her kingdom. Paige looks on pleased while AJ is pissed.

OFFICIAL RESULT: Jack Swagger @ 13:00 via pinfall MATCH THOUGHTS: This match was as good as expected between these two. They got a lot of time unlike the other matches, which was good.
FINAL THOUGHTS: I have to admit that this edition of Main Event was a little weak compared to the past few weeks. There were too many recaps and promos not enough wrestling. All the matches were good but shortchanged in time except Del Rio and Swagger; however, that match was interrupted by a commercial. This one was an alright edition of Main Event. Nevertheless, thanks to any who read the recap!
