Yes, Main Event still exists.
The show broadcasts in international markets, and is exclusive in the U.S. on Hulu for a few weeks before getting uploaded to WWE Network.
It’s where Ricochet worked this week, defeating Shane Thorne in his third ever match on what has to be considered the company’s D show at this point (it isn’t even listed on their “Show” page online). Not where many expected him to land when promotions were champing at the bit to sign him the second his Lucha Underground contract expired.
But here we are. To Ricochet’s credit, he’s doing the best he can with the hand he’s been dealt.
And before you all start complaining about anyone being on Main Event.— Pretty Ricky (@KingRicochet) May 22, 2020
I will say that Main Event has some really good matches on there by a lot of good workers.
He’s heard what you’re probably thinking, and he has some thoughts of his own.
Maybe they should start caring. ♂️— Pretty Ricky (@KingRicochet) May 22, 2020
Maybe be if everyone would start watching more they’d put more into it? ♂️— Pretty Ricky (@KingRicochet) May 22, 2020
Before you make any jokes, let’s be serious for a minute.
In a lot of ways Main Event, Sunday Night Heat (back in the day) and evening Live Events are a lot alike. Many fans write them off because they don’t think they are as “important” but some really great fun stuff happens on them.— Lance Storm (@LanceStorm) May 22, 2020
Personally, I’m still trying to figure out why MVP is managing Thorne & Brendan Vink instead of Ric & Cedric Alexander. But at least they’re not throwing axes at the ren faire?
It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
