The second episode of WWE Main Event aired Wednesday, Oct. 10. The format of the second show was nearly identical to the first episode, which is both a good and bad.
WWE Main Event looks like the WWE has finally found a way to have three great shows on during the week, but the show would be much better if it fixes a few minor flaws.
Both episodes of the WWE Main Event have featured a high profile match with two of the biggest stars on the WWE roster. There is also a second match between wrestlers that are not quite at the top of the WWE right now.
Wednesday's episode of WWE Main Event had a match between the Big Show and Randy Orton, and also had Kofi Kingston taking on Michael McGillicutty. This match format is the best thing that WWE Main Event has going for it right now. The WWE fans are brought in because of the match featuring the top stars, and then they also get to see some of the best up-and-coming talent in the company. It appears that this will continue on the third episode of the show next week because a match between Kofi Kingston and The Miz for the Intercontinental Title was announced Wednesday.
The only problems with WWE Main Event come before the start of the first match on the show. More than 10 minutes has been spent on interviews and video packages that have hyped the first match during each show. While these are a great way to get the fans interested in the match, the time spent on them needs to be, at least, cut in half. These five to seven minutes could then be spent to improve the existing matches or to add a third match to the show. Video packages are only really needed when you are hyping a match for a high profile event, but the interviews are a nice touch that you do not get on Raw or Smackdown.
WWE Main Event looks like it has a great chance to succeed unlike WWE Superstars and NXT, but these minor tweaks would make the show even better.
