By Chris Aiken for WrestlingObserver.com
WWE Main Event from Kansas City featured another long divas match and two wrestlers that frequently lose both got a win. The road to WrestleMania continues on this episode of Main Event.
Curtis Axel beat Jack Swagger
They started with chain wrestling and Axel mugged to the crowd. Swagger went to apply the ankle lock and Axel bailed out of the ring. Back in the ring, Axel cut off Swagger and got heat on him. Axel missed an elbow smash off the middle rope. Swagger started a comeback and ran wild including clotheslining Axel over the top rope and out to the floor. On the outside, Swagger rammed Axel into the barricade. Axel blocked the Swagger bomb and went for a schoolboy. Axel held the tights on a rolled up Swagger for the pinfall.
Naomi beat Alicia Fox
After some early exchanges, they both did a kip up for a stalemate. Alicia gained the early advantage as they worked a headlock. Naomi did a springboard off the top rope into a sunset flip. She then cut off Alicia with a hurricanrana. Naomi followed that up with a booty shake headscissors. Alicia took a powder and knocked Naomi off the apron before a commercial.
Following the break, Alicia hit a northern lights suplex with a bridge. Alicia got heat on Naom until a tilt-a-whirl into a crossbody led to a comeback. Both went down after a double slingblade of sorts. Naomi did a running bulldog into the turnbuckles. After going to the top, Naomi dove off with a high crossbody and Alicia floated over to reverse the pin attempt. Alicia ducked the rear view only to run into the finisher on a second attempt as Naomi covered her for the pin.
Zack Ryder beat Adam Rose (with the Rosebuds)
On commentary, Tom Phillips noted about this match that the “Twitter war [between Rose and Ryder] rages on.” Rose went for a rollup at the outset and argued with the referee about his count until Ryder hit him with a dropkick. Ryder then clotheslined Rose over the top rope and out to ringside. Rose gave Ryder a spinebuster on to the apron. Back in the ring, Rose grounded him. Rose gave Ryder another spinebuster after a hope spot. Rose delivered an elbow smash into a corner and mocked Ryder.
In mocking him, Rose went for a broski boot but Ryder slid out of the way. Ryder started a comeback that included a missile dropkick off the middle rope and an elbow smash in a corner to set up the broski boot for a nearfall. Rose cut him off with a lariat. Rose went up to the top turnbuckle but Ryder crotched him. Ryder did a Frankensteiner off the top followed by the rough rider for the pin. They are now 1-1 against each other on Main Event so THIS FEUD MUST CONTINUE~!
Ryback beat Miz
This was a rematch from a match between the two on Raw that saw the apparent breakup of Miz and Mizdow. No Mizdow in sight during this match. Miz tried a slugfest at the beginning of this match until Ryback hit a Thesz press and followed that with a gorilla press slam. Ryback caught Miz on a crossbody and turned it into a delayed vertical suplex.
Miz cut him off, gave him a DDT and put the boots to him. Miz jumped off the top with an ax handle. Miz applied a sleeper hold that Ryback broke up with a jawjacker. Ryback started a comeback and Miz bailed out. Ryback clotheslined Miz on the floor. Back in the ring, Ryback executed the shellshock for the pinfall.
