Notes In Observance – WWE Main Event 1/13/15: (Nothing) New Day

WWE Main Event“Notes In Observance” features random thoughts and analysis of recent television shows. Quick results can be found at the bottom of the post.






(Aired 1/13/15)

(Nothing) New Day

– Having no Raw highlight video to open was a nice change of pace as it went straight to the Gold and Star Dust-Los Matadores (w/El Torito) match. The insertion of Gold and Star Dust in the Royal Rumble match was also newsworthy. The match itself was okay, though short. Torito played into the finish as Goldust taunted Torito and got hurricanrana’d and swooped up in a pin.

– Anytime The Ascension’s music hits, you know it’s a squash. Pretty much a repeat of their last squash matches; they give a promo that tears down legendary tag teams, then they dominate local jobbers. More of what happened here. JBL making a big stink of why they’re not facing real competition can make you wonder if The Authority has purposely given them easy opponents to become their future henchmen?

– The highlight video of the Seth Rollins-John Cena match and the contract signing segment from Raw certainly made Rollins look like he had a brilliant night.

– The Rusev-Justin Gabriel match was more to showcase Rusev as United States Champion. JBL brought up the brilliant point of the crowd’s “USA” chants not working here. Being that Rusev has never been defeated, it was hard to believe his first loss would happen at a Main Event to Justin Gabriel. Sure enough, after about five moves of Gabriel on offense, he wound up in the Camel Clutch and tapped out. He superkicked Gabriel after the bell and jumped in celebration and slipped and fell, but quickly got back up. That so wasn’t supposed to happen. Live Stream, folks.

– The pre-taped New Day promo was more of the same “positivity” schtick as before. The match between The New Day and Tyson Kidd/Cesaro/Adam Rose (w/The Exotic Express, Natalya) had decent action for a six man tag. But this match just makes you wonder about The New Day. Why are they here? What do they want? How did they get together? The action considerably picked up once Big E got picked up for the hot tag. They were a little more over with the crowd here in probably their best outing to date. Credit had to go to their opponents too as they made it exciting.
