WWE Main Event is a professional wrestling television program produced by WWE that originally aired on Ion Television in the United States and is broadcast on the WWE Network. It debuted on October 3, 2012 and ended its domestic broadcasting on April 2, 2014. After the final domestic TV broadcast the show moved to an internet broadcast format. The show features lower to mid card WWE wrestlers and complements WWE's primary programs Raw and SmackDown.

Production/presentation[edit]

The show is produced on Tuesday evenings, immediately before the SmackDown taping. Though its airing on the WWE Network that same evening is billed as "live", it actually airs on a slight tape delay.[1] WWE commentator Michael Cole and Byron Saxton are the broadcast team, and Eden Stiles is the ring announcer. It uses the same HD set and the all-white ring ropes as all other WWE programming (though for the month of October 2012 and October 2013, the middle rope was pink, to promote WWE and Susan G. Komen for the Cure's breast cancer awareness campaign). From October 3, 2012 to January 22, 2014, "Diamond Eyes (Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom)" by Shinedown served as the official theme for Main Event. Since January 29, 2014, "On My Own" by CFO$ now serves as the theme song.
