WWE Main Event results: Hype Bros make their main roster debut
Posted On July 19, 2020
The theme song for Main Event remains unchanged post-brand split. No need to worry though, as the superstars featured in the intro reflect the SmackDown brand only.
Mojo Rawley makes his main roster in-ring debut as one half of the Hype Bros to kick off Main Event, seemingly killing off some of the momentum his partner, Zack Ryder, has been gaining as a singles wrestler since WrestleMania. We’ll see.
The Hype Bros defeated The Vaudevillains
The Hype Bros have a lot of energy. There is a sizeable Mojo Rawley fan base tonight in Buffalo. Ryder and Gotch start it off, trading strikes and dropkicks. Ryder tags in Rawley and traps Gotch in the corner. Rawley whips Ryder into Gotch, then whips Gotch and hits a lariat.
Gotch fights him off and tags in English. They double team Rawley, but Rawley hits a crossbody off the ropes, and starts telling everyone that English ain’t hype. English charges but Rawley catches him with a back body drop.
Rawley tags in Ryder, who sends English into the corner. He warms up for the Broski Boot a little too early as English slides out of the ring. Ryder just worked up a lot of energy and now he’s got nowhere to put it. Something’s got to give.
He jumps through the ropes feet first. Gotch pushes English out of the way and gets sent into the barricade for his troubles. English, in turn, pushes Ryder into the barricade.
Back from commercial, English and Ryder are in the ring. English has Ryder on the canvas. Ryder, after taking a beating, escapes to the outside to regroup. English and Gotch both attempt an attack and both are taken down by Ryder.
Ryder creeps back into the ring and starts making the long, slow crawl to his corner for the Hot Tag™. But he’s too slow. English cuts him off at the pass and covers for two.
English tags in Gotch and locks in an arm stretch. Ryder tries to reach for the tag, but Gotch stops him and knocks Ryder off the apron as well. Gotch tags in English, who charges at Ryder. Ryder, with his last ounce of strength, digs deep and makes the Hot Tag™.
Hot Tags™ don’t come any hotter than they come with Rawley. He hypes all over English, tossing him, punching him, clotheslining him. Until he goes too far and English kicks him in the gut. But before long, Rawley is back to his original hype level and he’s off tackling and running around again.
In all the confusion, Gotch, who is not the legal man, is taken out in the corner just long enough for Ryder, also not the legal man, to neutralize him with a Broski Boot.
Rawley tags in Ryder and they hit the Hype Rider. Ballgame.
The Hype Bros win their first main roster match.
