From Austin TX…

Sasha Banks is out to kick off the show but she’s using Naomi’s music? Booty. Faction warfare continues in the Divas division on Main Event this week as Sasha goes against one of the stars of Total Divas…

Sasha Banks vs Brie Bella

Brie takes the early lead and mocks Sasha. Banks comes back with some moves of her own, mocking Brie with a “YES” chant. They almost botch a tilt a whirl headscissor spot but Sasha hits it anyway. Lucha style armdrag by Sasha and she goes for her double knees in the corner but Team Bella pulls Brie out. Baseball slide by Banks sends Brie almost to the announce table. Back inside, Sasha looks to go up top but Brie grabs a leg and sends her crashing to the mat as we go to break…

…Brie is kicking away on Sasha as we come back to the show. BRIEEEE MOOOODE and a knee to the face by Bella gets a 2 count. Russian leg sweep also gets a 2 count and Brie is firmly in control. Brie looking for snake eyes but Sasha turns the tide. A series of clotheslines followed by a pair of knees in the corner gets Banks a near fall. Brie fires back with a missile drop kick for 2! Seated roundhouse kick misses and Banks rolls up Brie for 2. Some real back & forth down the stretch here. Brie looks for the X-Factor but Sasha reverses into the Banks Statement! Brie taps!

WINNER: Sasha Banks via submission

Tag team action next on ME and it’s time to hit that MILLIONS OF DOLLARS dance! The PTP won’t be dancing long as 2 monsters emerge to challenge them this week…

Prime Time Players vs Erick Rowan & Braun Strowman

Young & Rowan to start. Rowan with the early advantage; Young gets a discus elbow but Rowan comes back with a spinning kick. He drags Young over to Strowman but he’s able to get away and tag Titus. Braun simply overpowering O’Neil so Titus uses some agility to gain he advantage. He tags Young back in, who fires off some lefts & rights. Braun just runs right through him though and tags Rowan back in. Big knee drop gets 2. The ol’ knuckles to the temple has D Young crying out in agony so he grabs Rowan’s beard and fights out of it. Enziguri by Young and he makes the tag to Titus! He’s throwing heavy shots at Rowan–URAHURAHURAH–and a big boot gets a pinfall attempt. Blind tag to Braun and he mows down Titus. Elevated sleeper finishes things off moments later. Not as fun as it would’ve been with Luke Harper in there, but still some fun hoss-like stuff.

WINNERS: Rowan & Strowman via submission

A preview of Brock vs Taker, the final chapter.

It’s main event time on Main Event and here comes the Intercontinental champion! He attempts to take down the man that gravity forgot in this week’s featured bout…

Kevin Owens vs Neville

They trade wrist locks to start. Neville uses his quickness to gain an advantage. Tilt a whirl headscissors spikes Owens right on top of his head! Owens heads out to the floor and Neville gives chase, Back in, Neville hits yet another headscissors that sends Owens fleeing to the outside, looking for refuge behind the announce desk as we go to commercial…

…Owens begging off but he’s met with a series of kicks. He avoids the last one and launches Neville outside under the bottom rope and all the way into the guardrail! Ouch. Neville tries to cimb back in and gets met with a superkick, sending him back to the floor. Owens rolls outside now and hits a fall away slam into the barricade before rolling Neville in for a 2 count. Rear chinlock slows the pace down and Owens is in control. Fireman’s carry gutbuster by KO gets another near fall. Owens puts the bad mouth on Byron Saxton before going back to kicking away at Neville. Owens hits a short arm clothesline and goes for another fireman’s carry but Neville counters into a DDT. KO tries charging in the corner but gets backdropped to the apron. Hangman by Neville, followed by a sliding dropkick on the apron. Owens is on the floor and Neville goes up top–he hits a BIG moonsault to the floor! Neville looks for a dropkick back inside but Owens holds on the ropes and hits a senton after Neville’s crash landing. Neville rolls to the corner and KO charges in but it’s countered and Neville hits a German suplex out of the corner! Kneeling dropkick gets 2 and Neville sets him up for the shooting star press but Owens rolls out of the way. Moments later, KO catches Neville in the pop-up powerbomb and that’s all she wrote!

WINNER: Kevin Owens via pinfall

Another strong week for Main Event, featuring a solid Divas match and hell of a main event. Kevin Owens’ run on this show the last month or two has been so much fun and he’s had good to great matches with such a variety of opponents. The ladies have also seemingly gotten more time to shine on this show since this whole “Divas revolution” started. The tag team match wasn’t bad either this week and when you put it all together, you get the best show in WWE once again this week.
