Earlier  tonight,    ION  Television  (the  former  PAX  TV)  and  World  Wrestling  Entertainment  premiered  a  brand  new  show  entitled  WWE  Main  Event.  For  those  who  didn’t  see  it,  here  it  is:

From  The  BOK   Center  in  Tulsa,  Oklahoma:

Hosted  by  Michael  Cole  and  WWE  Intercontinental  Champion  The  Miz.

Before  the  start  of  the  Champion  vs.  Champion  Match,  two  videos  were  shown.  The  first  video  was  about  WWE  Champion  CM  Punk  featuring   Joey  Mercury,  Paul  Heyman,  and  “Freebird”   Michael  “P.S”  Hayes.  The  second  video  was  about   WWE   World  Heavyweight  Champion  Sheamus  featuring  Triple  H,  Chris  Jericho,  and  WWE  Tag  Team  Champion  Daniel  Bryan.  The  CM  Punk  video  was  very  well  done.

1.  A  CHAMPION  VS.  CHAMPION  MATCH:  WWE  World  Heavyweight  Champion  Sheamus  vs.  WWE  Champion  CM  Punk  with  Paul  Heyman.

THE  WINNER:  SHEAMUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOTE:  THIS  WAS  ONE  POWERFUL  MATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

POST-MATCH  INTERVIEW:  Matt  Striker  interviewed  Sheamus,   and vowed  that  CM  Punk  will  fall  to  the  Brogue  Kick.

CM  Punk  was  interviewed  by  Josh  Matthews.

Before  the  start  of  the  second,  and  last  match  of  the  show,  Michael  Cole  announced  that  next  week  on  Main  Event,  The  Big  Show  will  face  Randy  Orton.  In  a  backstage  interview  that  Matt  Striker  conducted  with  The  Big  Show,  he  stated  that  his  fist  will  be  the  last  thing  Randy  Orton  will  see.

2.  THE  #1  CONTENDER’S  TAG  TEAM  CHAMPIONSHIP  TOURNAMENT

MATCH  #3:  Santino  Marella  and  Zack  Ryder  vs.  Justin  Gabriel  and  Tyson  Kidd.

THE  WINNERS:  SANTINO  MARELLA  AND  ZACK  RYDER!!!!!!!!!!!

NOTE:  Because  of  their  victory  in  this  match,  Santino  Marella  and  Zack  Ryder  will  face  The  Rhodes  Scholars  (Damien  Sandow  and  Cody  Rhodes  in  a  semifinal  match,  this  Friday  on  SmackDown!.

ANALYSIS:   While  there  was  a  LOT  of  talking   on  this  show,  I  do  give  WWE  credit  for  returning  to   mainstream  network  television   (I  still  haven’t  seen  WWE  Saturday  Morning  Slam  on  The  CW  Network,  yet).  I  was  also  happy  to  see  post-match  interviews,  which  reminded  me  a  lot  of  old-school  wrestling  television  shows.

WWE  Main  Event  will  air  every  Wednesday  at  8  PM  ET/7PM  CT  on  ION  Television.
