WWE Main Event results, live blog (July 29, 2014): Dean Ambrose vs. Alberto Del Rio

WWE Main Event comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Tues., July 29, 2014) from the American Bank Center Arena in Corpus Christi, Texas, and we'll have complete results and a live blog for the show right when it kicks off at 8 p.m. ET on the WWE Network.

Tonight's show will feature Dean Ambrose vs. Alberto Del Rio.

Be sure to come back here at 8 p.m. ET for the Main Event live blog.



Sean here. 'Sup?

Lots of fireworks in Corpus Christi.  And you'll get a replay of the Stephanie McMahon-Brie Bella face-off from Raw!

But before that, have the best new entrance them in's the Lunatic Fringe in a stylish gray leather jacket.  Seth Rollins beatdown from Smackdown causes Dean to roll his neck.  He mocks the "promotional tour" that The Authority sent him on, saying that kissing babies has never been his thing.

Ambrose calls out Rollins, who he says is probably backstage eatingp protein bars with Triple H.  Awkward silence.  No dice.  He's going to go through everything The Authority puts in front of him - even El Torito, apparently.

Here comes Alberto Del Rio and his puffy eye to remind us that he's a former WWE and World Heavyweight Champion, and tell him to focus that.  ADR sees that Dean's shoulder is wrapped up like a present for him and his cross arm breaker.  He kicks Ambrose in the shoulder, and our main event's psychology is set!

John Cena and Paul Heyman's promo duel...even the champ said the b-word last night!

The Usos vs. Rybaxel

Here's a fresh match-up for you.  At least Xavier Woods is commentary, and he says he will explain himself.

X says that what he, Big E and Kofi have in common is that they are upset with how they've been treated by fans and WWE.  He can work with that, and he will reveal their plans when the time is right.  Woods makes some comments about strength in numbers, and how they will have each other's backs as they strive for the individual success that they deserve.

In the ring, Ryback and Curtis Axel work over one of the twins.

The silver-suited Xavier tells us not to make assumptions about his new unit.  He blames the "distractions" that were put in front of them that causes them to think pandering was a good idea.

Ryback misses a top rope elbow drop, and both teams tag.  Jimmy gets the upperhand against Axel...and I kind of lost the action trying to listen to XW, but it was pretty good.  Curtis takes the pin after a Samoan Splash.

Jimmy and Jey stare at Big and Kofi, showing them their titles as the three men glare back at them.

Geno Mrosko's early pick for the 2015 Emmy Awards, Stephanie McMahon, gets the WWE video team treatment.  Apparently, you can't say the b-word before 9AM on the Network, so these two call each other 'bits' a lot.


It's weird to get a commercial for an edited version of WrestleMania on NBC on the service I pay for at least in part so I can watch all of every PPV whenever I want to.

SLATERGATOR inset interview.  Heath is excited, Titus is not.  Tom Phillips keeps calling them Slater and the Gator, which isn't as good a name as SLATERGATOR.

SLATERGATOR vs Zack Ryder & Tyson Kidd

More proof WWE and NXT Creative teams don't watch each others shows.

Tyson clowns Heath and sends him to the floor, Ryder gets some offense in before Titus SMASH.  He has no interest in tagging Slater back in, and ends up eating a chin full of knees on a charge.  He ends up tagging his partner, who lets Zack slip out of back body drop for a tag.

Kidd attcks with his educated feet, and hangs Heath in a tree of woe.  O'Neil gets kicked in the head when he tries to interfere, and then takes a Broski Boot.  Slater takes a running drop kick, but when Titus distracts and he shrugs off the Iced Z - Heath get a big slam from the top and SLATERGATOR WINS!

Randy Orton's viperiffic beatdown of Roman Reigns is highlighted.

Of course Dean's theme is called "Retaliation".  Surprised how dead the Texas crowd is for Del Rio.

Dean Ambrose vs. Alberto Del Rio

Dean immediately rubs Del Rio's stitched up eye on the top rope.  The only appropriate response to injury targeting is more injury targeting.  A quick enziguri in the corner lets Alberto get some offense in, but Ambrose answers with a high knee and starts throwing the Mexican around the floor.

Ambrose ties him up with nifty submission, but then misses a charge and goes shoulder first into the ring post.  Del Rio with a stiff sounding kick to the dome while he's still prone in that position, and then he comes in and starts working over the bad arm.

With a little separation, Dean goes up top, but gets racked.  He fights off Del Rio by clawing at his eyes, and then hits the missle drop kick.  They brawl in the corner, but Alberto lands another head kick to knock his opponent to the floor for the commercial break.

Rest hold from the former world champ when we return.  The former US champ crazies up, but a kick to the gut is answered with a big clothesline.  ADR throws Ambrose shoulder first into the post again.  Superplex to Dean, one-two-NO!

Back to the chin lock, but the Lunatic Fringe gets up and escapes with a suplex.  Strikes with his good arm, and a cross body downs Del Rio.  ADR back up, but Dean dodges a charge and then dives onto the floor and sends Alberto into the seats!

Roll-up gets two for Ambrose, and a big German suplex counter gets two for Del Rio.  Dean scouts the corner head kick, and catches him for a big DDT for one, two, NO!

Dean sets up for something, but Alberto hits a backstabber on the shoulder and knocks the spit from Ambrose's mouth with a kick.  But he still can't get three!  Looking for the cross armbreaker, Dean escapes and dives head first at Del Rio.

And here comes Seth Rollins.  They brawl and DQ.  BOOO.  That was a great match that deserved a finish.

Good back-and-forth between the former teammates, but Dean fights him off.  When Del Rio tries to take advantage after Seth has retreated up the ramp, he gets caught with Dirty Deeds.

End scene.
