Superstars: Tag champs not DZP
By MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling


Tonight on WWE Superstars: It's a double dose of Raw tag matches tonight. In the semi-main event, Yoshi Tatsu and David Hart Smith team to face The Usos. Then, in the main event, WWE Tag Team Champions Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov meet Zack Ryder and Primo in a nontitle affair. Should be a good one!

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

Match #1 - Chris Masters (Los Angeles, Calif.) vs. Tyler Reks (Laguna, Calif.)

Dragon Sleeper for Reks but Masters knees his way out. Reks responds with a reverse DDT and starts putting the boots to Masters. Masters, though, sends Reks over the top rope and to the floor. Reks gets on the apron and wrings the neck of Masters. He gets in the ring and charges him only to eat a Samoan drop. Shoulderblock for Masters, then a back elbow. Big spinebuster lands for Masters for two. He drives Reks into the corner but eats an elbow. Reks comes off the second rope but Masters catches him with the Masterlock. That's it. Big win for Chris Masters.

Winner via submission: Chris Masters

Match #2 - Yoshi Tatsu (Tokyo, Japan) & David Hart Smith (Calgary, Alberta) vs. Jimmy & Jey Uso (San Francisco, Calif.)

Usos in control and have Tatsu isolated. Usos completely in control here. Flying headbutt connects for Jimmy but Tatsu kicks out at two. Headlock for Jimmy. He tries to get going and does with a spinning heel kick. Jimmy tags in Jey and Tatsu brings in Smith. Smith on fire. Big boot connects. He follows that up with a dance and a leg drop. Then he hits a Batista Bomb but Jimmy makes the save. Tatsu comes in and eats a Samoan drop. As the ref rolls Tatsu out of the ring (and what a sight this was), Jimmy does the same to Jey, posts Smith and rolls him up with the use of the tights for the pin.

Winners via pinfall: The Usos

Match #3 - Santino Marella (Calbria, Italy) & Vladimir Kozlov (Moscow, Russia) vs. Zack Ryder (Long Island, NY) & Primo (San Juan, Puerto Rico)

Ryder working over Santino now. He and Primo utilizing quick tags. Primo with a kick to Santino behind the referee's back. Primo with a nice suplex for two. Primo trying to keep Santino away from Kozlov and he finally does after having to catch Santino in mid-air to do so.

More double teaming but Santino pushes Ryder and Primo into each other and Kozlov is in now and going wild on Primo. Huge boot and then a headbutt. He loads Primo up for a body slam but Ryder pulls him off. Santino blind tags his way in and Kozlov hits a double clothesline. Santino in and he loads up the Cobra and puts Primo away with it.

Winners via pinfall: Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov
