Superstars: Swagger headlines four-match show
By MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling


Tonight on WWE Superstars: Former World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger makes his first appearance on Superstars in quite some time as he headlines tonight's show against Trent Barreta. Also on the show, Natalya tunes up for her Divas Championship match with a bout against Alicia Fox. Should be a good one!

This show is presented in WWEHD (TV-PG, V)

Match #1 - Natalya (Calgary, Alberta) vs. Alicia Fox (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.)

Natalya runs wild early and Alicia takes over briefly before Natalya actually puts Natalya in the Surfboard. Haven't seen that in quite sometime.

Natalya tries to suplex Fox into the ring from the apron but Fox pulls Natalya down onto the top rope. She comes in with a clothesline for two. Body scissors for Alicia but Natalya rolls over. Fox with some slaps but Natalya uses her power to pick Fox up and go for a bearhug but Fox flips her and gets a cover out of it for two.

Fox goes for a modified German suplex but Natalya stops that. Then they come at each other and hit a double clothesline. Alicia up first. She misses a knee drop and Natalya slaps her and hits a suplex. A clothesline and then a delayed vertical suplex for Natalya. She then counters Fox, grabs her legs and locks in the Sharpshooter and gets the tap.

Winner via submission: Natalya

Well, I guess they didn't have enough for this show because they now are replaying all the big Nexus things from Raw and now the CM Punk-John Cena match in its entirety.

Match #2 - Handicap Match - The Great Khali (India) vs. Jimmy & Jey Uso (San Francisco, Calif.)

Both Usos in the ring at the same time here. After a brief Khali run, they hit a chop block and then a double superkick. They go for a cover but Khali pushes them off. They try to wrap up his arms but he fires out. Clotheslines for everybody. One gets the chop and then the Punjabi Plunge. Thanks for coming, Usos.

Winner via pinfall: The Great Khali

Match #3 - Tyler Reks (Laguna, Calif.) vs. Curt Hawkins (Queens, NY)

These two meet after Reks attacked Hawkins following their win in a tag team match last week.

Reks is all over Hawkins in the early going. Hawkins rises up from a chinlock and lands some punches and flying forearm. Dropkick for Hawkins. Reks picks Hawkins up for Hawkins counters with a flatliner. Hawkins goes to the top for the big elbow but Reks crotches him. Reks goes up to the top, puts Hawkins on his shoulders and then falls to the mat while dropping Hawkins onto the top rope. Wow. Haven't seen that. One Burning Hammer later and that's all she wrote.

Winner via pinfall: Tyler Reks

Match #4 - Jack Swagger (Perry, Okla.) vs. Trent Barreta (Mount Sinai, NY)

Swagger takes it to Barreta with amateur wrestling early. He goes for another takedown and Barreta almost catches him with a sunset flip. Swagger with a Vader Bomb for two. Swagger goes to work on the left arm but Barreta punches his way out and hits a dropkick. Barreta goes for an enziguri but Swagger ducks and grabs Barreta's ankle for the ankle lock. Barreta fights it but has to tap.

Winner via submission: Jack Swagger
