Quick hits on WWE Superstars 02/17/11

I thought that since I watch the show every week, I might as well give my thoughts on it.  Here’s a rundown of what happened on Superstars.

Chris Masters def. Tyler Reks
It was truly the contest of the behemoths of Superstars, as neither Chris Masters nor Tyler Reks tend to lose matches on the C-Show.  Well, make that Chris Masters who never loses on the C-Show as he caught Reks coming off the top rope and locked on the Masterlock to get the win.  The commentators claimed that since returning to the WWE no one has broken the Masterlock and as long as he sticks to Superstars, that claim will remain true.

The Usos (Jey and Jimmy Uso) def. Yoshi Tatsu and David Hart Smith
Remember when David Hart Smith was a tag team champion?  Losing on Superstars in no big deal – the lower card seems to shuffle around with who wins and who loses – but losing to the Usos is kind of embarassing.  Not only did these guys make absolutely nothing out of their debut and feud with the Hart Dynasty, but they lost their valet to Santino Marella of all people.  But fortunately, they happen to be identical twins and as stated in the rulebook of tag team wrestling if twins are tagging (or even similar looking partners – the Headbangers used to do it), then they must pull the ol’ switcheroo.  Jimmy exchanged with Jey and pulled the win.  Or at least that’s who Josh Matthews said it was, so I’m taking his word for it.

Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov (w/Tamina) def. Zack Ryder & Primo
Woo woo woo, you knOW! YOU JUST HIT ME WITH THE COBRA, BRO!  I know at least one of this blog’s writers is DZP (hint: it’s manof1004gimmicks) but their efforts at tag teaming has been pretty abysmal thus far.  In an effort filled with miscues and botched moves, the tag champs made Zack and Primo look silly.  ZP became the first pairing I’ve ever seen miss the arm-held-slam-off-the-ropes move when Santino of all people simply pulled Primo out of the way with his held arm.  The ending was never in question and with the loss goes any chance of a DZP tag title opportunity.


An All-American American Homecoming – ECW 12/22/09

The night opened up with the All-American American Jack Swagger returning to ECW.  The former ECW Champion stated it was good to be back where he got his start and to see changing faces in Land of Extreme but that the more things change the more they stay the same referencing his distaste in ECW Champion Christian and ECW Original Tommy Dreamer. With that he said he looked forward to winning the ECW Homecoming, facing Christian at the Royal Rumble and becoming the ECW Champion once again.  Read more of this post

The Superstars Rundown 11/5/09

This week on Superstars:

Santino Marella vs. Chavo Guerrero

It just hasn’t been a good past few months for the “Mexican Warrior” as Santino reverses a pin into a win this week. I guess that’s why John Cena says not to mess with leprechauns.

Jack Swagger vs. Primo

The All-American American kept his promised winning streak alive this week with a counter into a Gutwrench Powerbomb for the pinfall…pinfall.

Paul Burchill vs. Tyler Reks

With a fight against a superhero next week on ECW, Paul Burchill put on an impressive showing against the laid back surfer Tyler Reks using the Dangerous Buster to pick up the win.  T. Reks got busted open at some point during the match but I’m not really sure how or when.

Chris Jericho vs. Finlay

The “Man Who Loves To Fight” went up against the “Best At What He Does” in an epic back and forth contest. Finlay was very agressive as to not show effects from the brutal attack he suffered from Drew McIntyre the week before. As Finlay went for the Celtic Cross, Jericho grabbed the ropes and escaped then hit Finlay with the Codebreaker for the win.

And that’s your Superstars Rundown for the week.

The Superstars Rundown 10/29/09

This weeks Superstars rundown:

Jack Swagger vs. Primo

The All-American, American kept his winning streak alive picking up the win against the fast-paced offense of Primo.

Kelly Kelly vs. Alicia Fox

Kelly Kelly couldn’t keep the momentum from her hometown win this week falling to the brutal scissors kick of A Fox.

Zack Ryder vs. Tyler Reks

A new webshow couldn’t help T. Reks this week as Ryder hits the Zack Attack for the win. Woo! Woo! Woo! You know it!

Cryme Tyme & R-Truth vs. The Hart Dynasty & Mike Knox

Six man tag action closed the night with R-Truth helping give the hood life duo that extra little bit to defeat their evenly match Canadian counterparts The Hart Dynasty.  Mike Knox has an amazing beard.
