Superstars: Jericho takes a walk
By MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling


Tonight on WWE Superstars: It's business as usual this week on Superstars. WWE delivers up a women's match and an ECW match that is tough to care about. But the show does get a much-needed influx of star power as Chris Jericho faces Kane in the main event. Should be a good one!

And we are TAPED! Michael Cole and Jerry "The King" Lawler are our hosts. This show is presented in WWEHD (TV-PG,V).

Match #1 - Jillian (Lousville, Ky.) vs. Kelly Kelly (Jacksonville, Fla.)

Kelly gets off to a quick start, making Jillan pay for her awful rendition of a Miley Cyrus song, but Jillian quickly turns it around.

Kelly battles back with a spinning head-scissors. Kelly tries a roll-through but Jillian stuffs it. She whips Kelly to the corner and goes for the back-flip elbow but Kelly kicks her in the back and hits the Kelly Kick for the win.

Winner via pinfall: Kelly Kelly

Match #2 - Shelton Benjamin (Orangeburg, S.C.) vs. Vance Archer (Dallas, Texas)

This is an ongoing rivalry that nobody knows (or cares) about.

Archer works over Benjamin good. He slaps on a rear-naked headlock, but Benjamin fights out and fires up. He hits a springboard forearm and a spinning heel kick that puts Archer down for two.

Benjamin with a German suplex that connects. He throws Archer off the ropes and goes for a dropkick, but Archer hangs on and Shelton falls flat. Archer puts Benjamin in the tree of woe and puts the boots to him. He charges but Benjamin flips out and kicks him. Benjamin slides into an Oklahoma roll and gets the duke.

Winner via pinfall: Shelton Benjamin

Match #3 - Chris Jericho (Winnipeg, Manitoba) vs. Kane (Hell, Fire & Brimstone)

Jericho makes the mistake of gloating and Kane slams his head into the turnbuckle. Kane puts the boots to him but Jericho gets his foot up in the corner on a charging Kane. Again Kane charges into the corner and this time Jericho moves and shoves Kane into the post.

Jericho locks in a headlock but is flipped over. But again, Kane cannot sustain the momentum. Jericho locks in another headlock but Kane escapes. Jericho hits a back elbow and goes for a bulldog but Kane picks him up and slams him. Both men are down.

They get up and Kane hits two uppercuts and the sidewalk slam for two. Kane goes to the top for the flying clothesline but Jericho dropkicks him out of the air. Jericho hits a bulldog and follows up with the Lionsault, but Kane moves and Jericho lands on his feet. He runs into the big boot for two.

Jericho goes for the Codebreaker but Kane pushes him off and calls for the choke slam. Jericho goes up but doesn't come down. Jericho then hightails it up the ramp.

Winner via countout: Kane
