8/9 Kester's WWE Superstars Live Coverage Review: Santino Marella vs. Michael McGillicutty, Tensai vs. Zack Ryder, and Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins vs. Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd
Aug 9, 2012 - 03:00 PM


By Ryan Kester

Superstars on WWE.com
Taped earlier in San Antonio and Houston, Texas.


1. Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins vs. Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd. Gabriel and Hawkins controlled the early action, but Hawkins and Reks gained control in short order. Hawkins and Reks worked over Kidd for the majority of the match…

[C] Back from the break, Reks and Hawkins continued to work over Kidd. Kidd eventually got the hot tag to Gabriel, who stormed the ring and took out both heels. The finish came when Kidd and Gabriel hit a double team move on Reks and Kidd covered Reks for the pin…

Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd defeated Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins in 10:15.

Ryan's Reaction: Good match. Standard WWE tag team formula, but it was well executed here.

[C] 2. Santino Marella vs. Michael McGillicutty. The two men effectively did a pose off and Santino chased McGillicutty out of the ring with the threat of The Cobra…

[C] McGillicutty had control of Santino and he wore Santino down for the majority of the match. Santino made his comeback and put McGillicutty away with The Cobra...

Santino Marella defeated Michael McGillicutty in 8:56.

Ryan's Reaction: Well, that happened. Santino can be fun in short bursts, but this match just dragged on and on and felt like a waste of time.

[C] The Raw Rebound aired…

[C] 3. Tensai vs. Zack Ryder. Tensai smash. Tensai manhandled Ryder in the early going and worked him over with a series of slams and drops.

Ryder had a hope spot late in the match, but Tensai put him away put Ryder away with a double-handed chokeslam and a senton splash.

Tensai defeated Zack Ryder in 5:15.

Ryan's Reaction: That was a notch or to above a squash. Tensai has potential but WWE needs to give him some more flattering attire and an actual feud. Overall, this was a skippable edition of Superstars. The tag match was fun, but the latter two matches were rather irrelevant.
