WWE Main Event results: Daivari & Nese battle Metalik & Dorado


The Big Takeaway --

Titus O' Neil scored a win over Curtis Axel, and the team of Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik came up short by losing to Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari.

Show Recap --

Titus O'Neil defeated Curtis Axel

Curtis Axel runs out fired up to face Titus O'Neil. Corey Graves talks about The sky being the limit for the Titus Brand. Axel circles O'Neil before getting tossed into the corner. O'Neil slaps his head before eating kicks and then a mudhole stomp in the corner. Axel lands a running shoulder block in the corner before kicking him down out of a corner charge for two.

Graves talks about how a good showing on Main Event might mean that you can eventually get title shots or move higher on the card -- offering up two valid reasons for this show being around still despite its prime being long gone.

O'Neil slugs Axel down before tossing Axel's shoulder into the buckle. O'Neil dominates for a bit, but Axel lands chops and kicks to regain a bit of an edge. A dropkick sends O'Neil down before a Perfect neck snap gets a nice pop. A running knee lift hits and gets two for Axel.

Axel goes up top, but gets taken down by O'Neil with the Clash of the Titus to win. The finish looked impressive, and he does the Sky High quite well.

A recap then aired of the past two Raw angles between Dean Ambrose and The Miz. The women's fatal four-way from Raw aired as well.

Ariya Daivari & Tony Nese defeated Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado

Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado come down to face Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari -- so this is 3/4 of the main event from last week's show. With Daivari being switched in, I'll guess that he eats the fall here.

Dorado starts off hot with a sunset flip off the shoulders of Daivari to get two. Nese comes in to face Metalik, who uses a variety of backflips to get a rana and uses that to get a springboard elbow off the ropes for two.

Nese hits a running trip near the ropes and gets pulled to the floor. Nese hits a leg drop for a near fall before Daivari tags in and clubs away. Nese comes back in to kick away at Metalik before his cover is broken up by Dorado. Metalik flips onto Nese's shoulders to hit a big DDT.

Dorado and Daivari come in, with Dorado hitting a series of lariats before hitting a big overhand chop to the chest. A quebrada gets two for Dorado.

Nese tosses Metalik out before Dorado hits a superkick to Nese and a spinebuster from Daivari gets two. Dorado hits the handspring stunner -- sending him outside, so the faces hit stereo Asai moonsaults. Dorado goes up, but gets tossed into the barricade by Daivari and eats a big lariat to win this. The heels have once again won on Main Event!
