WWE Main Event
August 19th 2014
Report by Mike Killam for Wrestlezone.com

United States Champion Sheamus starts the show. Michael Cole is making a rare appearance on commentary with Byron Saxton. As we get ready for the first match, Cesaro makes his way out in a suit and tie, and takes a seat at commentary. 

SHEAMUS vs. CURTIS AXEL

Cesaro puts over the WWE Network in over 170 countries, as Sheamus starts beating the heck out of Axel. Curtis battles back with a few right hands in the corner, but Sheamus hits the Irish Curse for a two-count. He tries for his Ten Beats move on the apron, but Axel drops down over the ropes. Axel continues his attack for several minutes with some pretty standard offense, as we go into a commercial. Sheamus recovers after the break and tries for the battering ram over the ropes, but Axel hits him with an uppercut, followed by the Perfect Plex for a nearfall. He starts slapping the crap out of Sheamus, who no-sells it and comes back fired up with clotheslines and running high knee strikes. Sheamus with a vertical suplex, followed by a shoulder tackle from the top turnbuckle. The Brogue Kick connects for the 1-2-3. 

Winner: SHEAMUS

After the match, Cesaro gets up and takes the US Championship. He looks it over, throws it to Sheamus, and walks off without looking at him.
