Found December 06, 2012 on Wrestling Truth:
Originally scheduled to be Champion vs Champion, Wade Barrett and R-Truth just couldn’t keep themselves from interfering in Kofi Kingston vs Antonio Cesaro’s match. The result? An impromptu tag team bout. Kofi Kingston vs Antonio Cesaro ends in a No Contest: This week’s Main Event shifted focus on to the WWE midcard, pitting Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston against United States Champion Antonio Cesaro. One question fans might be asking is who’s the better Champion? Another question they might be asking is why do WWE have two midcard titles? Backstage Kingston said from time to time a “Wildcat” needs to show its teeth. After beating Miz, something intense was unleashed inside him and when Cesaro claimed to be the greatest champion in WWE history, Kofi said the intensity just took over. While the smiley Ghanaian could do with a mean-streak to add depth to his one-dimensional character, telling us he’s more intense is not as believable as showing us, and tonight he entered the ring still the same old Happy-Go-Lucky goof-ball. On commentary for tonight’s match is IC contender Wade Barrett and US contender R-Truth. While Barrett continues to carry himself like a legitimate star gunning for the belt, R-Truth remained whimsical. Where’s his heat for Cesaro? They’ve had two months to build a feud and there’s still no hook or reason to care. The battle remained fairly even early on, with Cesaro relying on his raw power and technical skills and Kingston displaying his agility and fast-paced style of competition. With momentum trading back and forth, the action spilled to the outside where the Intercontinental Champion stared down his WWE TLC opponent. From there, Kingston seemed somewhat distracted by Barrett’s presence and Cesaro capitalized, targeting “The Wildcat’s” arm and gaining an important edge in the contest. Each time Kingston tried to regain his composure and mount an offensive, The Swiss Superman fought back with devastating European Uppercuts. Battling through the pain and Cesaro’s overwhelming power, Kingston’s resilience was certainly on display — a fact Barrett was keeping in mind. “The Wildcat’s” toughness allowed him to regain control of the match and his speed was seemingly too much for Cesaro to handle as he landed a Boom Drop and prepared for Trouble in Paradise. As Kingston prepared to end the battle, however, The Bare-Knuckle Brawler ran into the ring and attacked his WWE TLC opponent. That also prompted R-Truth to go after Cesaro and chaos reigned supreme. The Champion vs. Champion Match ended in a no contest and R-Truth and Kingston — with Little Jimmy’s approval (seriously) — challenged Barrett and Cesaro to a tag team match. The challenge was accepted and an impromptu tag team match immediately got underway. R Truth & Kofi Kingston def. Antonio Cesaro & Wade Barrett: Although the physicality of Barrett and Cesaro seemed to be the dominant force in the bout, the former WWE Tag Team Champions pressed on, each displaying a resilience that will no doubt come into play in their respective WWE TLC title matches. In the closing moments R-Truth tagged himself into the match, executing a sunset flip from the top rope on The Swiss Superman. Struggling to put him down for the pinfall, Kingston nailed Trouble in Paradise, dropping the U.S. Champion and allowing Truth to secure the win over his TLC opponent. Conclusion: Not the most entertaining Main Event so far, purely for the fact that R-Truth and Kingston are stale and the respective feuds are not very intense. That being said if fans are to get behind the upcoming PPV matches the wrestlers need television time and tonight they got it. In that sense this week’s show served a valuable purpose. But it’s time for things to heat up!
