Main Event results from Atlanta, GA:
Days ahead of WWE Payback pay-per-view, WWE’s latest episode of Main Event aired on the WWE Network live on Tuesday, May 27. Here’s a look at the latest results including The Wyatt Family, Cody Rhodes and Natalya among those in action on the show.
Curtis Axel defeated Cody Rhodes via pinfall. A backstage altercation between The Rhodes Brothers and RybAxel led to the match. Ryback and Goldust were ringside and at one point, Goldust helped keep Ryback from interfering. Cody delivered a Disaster Kick to him for good measure, but Axel was able to take advantage. Axel took out Cody’s knee and was able to win the match.
R-Truth defeated Damien Sandow via pinfall. Following his appearance on Raw and loss to Adam Rose as “Davy Crockett,” Sandow came out wearing a “D-Sizzle” rap costume to face Truth. Sandow kept focusing on mocking old rap references and that eventually allowed Truth to get the takedown and winning pinfall.
Natalya defeated Brie Bella via submission. In a tune-up for her NXT Women’s championship match on Wednesday night, Natalya was able to stop an emotional Brie. At one point, the Bella sister, who is in danger of being fired on Sunday, was able to apply a single crab onto Natalya. However, the daughter of Jim Neidhart was able to reverse the hold and turn it into her Sharpshooter to make Brie tap out.
Luke Harper & Erick Rowan defeated The Usos via pinfall in a non-title match. A hot tag late in the match brought Jimmy in with momentum. However, it was a huge clothesline by Luke Harper that eventually won the match for The Wyatts. Post-match, the family attacked The Usos, sending a message to Cena ahead of Payback.
