Taped earlier in Uniondale, New York and Baltimore, Maryland.
1. Hunico vs. Ezekiel Jackson. Hunico dominated early and worked a heel offense with kicks and rest holds.
Jackson had a hope spot late in the match, but Hunico quickly came back with a high-angle senton for the pinfall victory…
Hunico defeated Ezekiel Jackson in 4:28.
Ryan's Reaction: Good work form Hunico. His match was really all about making Hunico look good as Jackson barely got in any offense.
[C] 2. Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks vs. Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd.Kidd an Gabriel outpaced the heels and took both out with a series of high-flying maneuvers. Reks battled back and dumped Kidd to the floor as the show went to commercial…
[C] Back from the break, Hawkins and Reks were working over Kidd. Kidd eventually got the hot tag to Gabriel, who stormed the ring and took out his two opponents.
Kidd covered Hawkins for the win after hitting a spinebuster/blockbuster combo on Hawkins...
Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd defeated Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks in 8:00.
Ryan's Reaction: Fun match, but there wasn't anything realty special about it. Standard WWE tag team wrestling.
[C] The Raw Rebound focused on John Laurinaitis getting his comeuppance at the hands of John Cena...
[C] 3. Zack Ryder vs. Drew McIntyre. Ryder worked the crowd into a frenzy early, but McIntyre controlled the action. Ryder had a few hope spots, but McIntyre maintained control heading into the break…
[C] After the commercial, Ryder was in control briefly before McIntyre pulled him into a steel post. McIntyre hit a release suplex on the ring apron for a near fall. McIntyre worked over Ryder with a series of power moves with intermittent rest holds.
Ryder eventually turned the momentum in his favor and scored with the Broski Boot. Moments later, Ryder put McIntyre away with the Rough Ryder from the second rope.
Zack Ryder defeated Drew McIntyre in 9:42.
Ryan's Reaction: Decent match. I continue to shake my head at the lack of utilization of McIntyre. The man has a ton of talent and it's being absolutely wasted on this show. This is a rather skippable edition of Superstars. Nothing terrible, but nothing special either.
