7 WWE Main Events You Won’t Believe Didn’t Close A PPV

WWE.com

The term ‘main event’ has a certain aura that comes along with it. As a sports fan it immediately brings to mind images of Michael Buffer famously announcing the opening of a high profile boxing match.

If you are a fan of the Ufc you can hear his brother Bruce doing the same thing inside the octagon with, It’s Time! But in wrestling, the term ‘main event’ has meant something completely different lately.

For about the last ten years WWE announcers have used the term ‘main event’, to describe multiple matches on card. During an era where there were still two world titles the term ‘main event’ was used rather loosely.

10 Popular Ufc Fighters That Will Never Be Champion

Julie Jacobson/AP/Press Association Images

Let’s face the facts, it’s an amazing feat of athleticism just to make it to the Ufc. However, everyone worth their salt as a competitor wants one thing: to wear the championship belt. Unfortunately for the athletes on this list, chances are that they will never hear Michael Buffer refer to them as the New Ufc Champion.

Olympic competition, collegiate wrestling, championships in other organizations, being in the best Mma camp in the world; none of these things guarantee even a title opportunity in the Ufc. This is a list of popular fighters. Most of them have the charisma to put butts in the seats. Many of them are knowledgeable enough to coach. But the hard facts say they just aren’t going to get that Ufc belt.
