10/24/12 Main Event

Ryback vs. Dolph Ziggler: *

Alberto Del Rio vs. Sin Cara: *1/2

Miz and Cole hype Ziggler/Ryback scheduled for later in the show. The usual awesome video packages air, plus some backstage promos. Ryback's promo is short and to the point. Big Hungry is starving. Ziggler has no comment. Yeah, he looks worried.

Crowd is really behind Ryback. As of this post, the guy has over 160,000 Twitter followers. Ziggler tried to run but Ryback caught him. Ryback virtually no-sold when he ran his shoulder into the post. Ziggler offense no effect. Ryback with a dominating win.

Since Cena isn't actually wrestling at Hell in a Cell, he'll be facing the WWE Universe in the preshow. Guess he'll be addressing the "AJ Scandal" that has its own Twitter hashtag deal.

Miz and Cole talk with Paul Heyman regarding Punk/Ryback at Hell in a Cell. Heyman praises Ryback's accomplishments, but believes Punk will have the intelligence advantage inside the cell.

Sin Cara and Alberto Del Rio close the show. Hey, Sin Cara threw some punches in this match instead of solely doing the spotfest lucha stuff! ADR gets the knees up on the senton and slaps on the cross armbreaker for the submission win.

Not as good of a show this week regarding match quality. HIAC is in a few days anyway. Still thinking it's possible that Lesnar appears to help Punk retain -- or they can go a no-contest route after both guys escape the cell somehow.

ADR says he doesn't need to do the "millions of dollars" chant. Enter Primetime Players. ADR says he isn't the enemy, Sin Cara is. The three beat down Sin Cara. There's no Mysterio tonight, which can also help explain stuff if Sin Cara does turn heel for his eventual storyline with Mysterio (I say keep Rey as the face in all this because he moves so much merchandise). Orton comes down for the save. RKOs to Titus and D-Young.

Next week on Main Event is the Halloween edition. Featured match is Orton, Mysterio, and Sin Cara in a six-man tag against ADR, Titus, and D-Young.
