Superstars: Masters continues to roll
MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling
Tonight on WWE Superstars: Once again, Zack Ryder and Primo steal the show on Superstars. In action from the Raw brand, Ryder and Primo team up once again to face the former WWE Tag Team Champions Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov. Also on the show, Chris Masters looks to continue his winning ways against Curt Hawkins. Should be a good one!
This show is presented in WWEHD (TV-PG, V)
Match #1 - R-Truth (Charlotte, NC) vs. William Regal (Blackpool, England)
Scott Stanford is the early highlight of this match, signing Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" From many moons ago. Then singing some lines from Grease, apparently. What a great man.
Regal with a headlock. Exploder suplex and an elbow drop for Regal for two. Truth, though, gets rolling with a drop kick but he goes for the Lie Detector and misses. Regal goes for a double underhook suplex but Truth counters and hits the What's Up and that's it.
Winner via pinfall: R-Truth
Match #2 - Santino Marella (Calabria, Italy) & Vladimir Kozlov (Moscow, Russia) vs. Zack Ryder (Long Island, NY) & Primo (San Juan, Puerto Rico)
Hot start between Santino and Primo. They exchange some moves and Primo offers his hand but pokes Santino in the eye. In the corner, Santino floats over and threatens the Cobra and Primo bails to the outside and tags in Ryder. Santino gets the best of him and brings in Kozlov. Headbutts to Ryder's chest by Kozlov and then he kicks him to the outside. Primo comes in and gets thrown to the outside as well.
We're back and Primo has turned the tide. He has Kozlov in a headlock but then goes for a springboard crossbody but Kozlov catches him and hits a fallaway slam. Kozlov misses a corner headbutt and Primo brings in Ryder, who comes off the top with a missile dropkick. Primo in now and he hits a corner forearm. Kozlov gets going and brings in Santino as Primo brings in Ryder. Hip-toss and diving headbutt for Santino but Primo breaks up the pin. Kozlov in and he sends Primo flying over the top and Ryder then dumps Kozlov to the floor. He lines Santino up for the Rough Ryder but Santino uses the splits to avoid it. He lines up the Cobra and hits it.
Winners via pinfall: Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov
Match #3 - Curt Hawkins (Queens, NY) vs. Chris Masters (Los Angeles, Calif.)
Masters goes off the ropes but Hawkins runs with him and clips him as he slides under the ropes. Hawkins with a rear headlock but Masters picks Hawkins up and runs him into the corner. Then he hits a slingshot into the turnbuckle. Hawkins reeling. Two big clotheslines by Masters. He goes to the second rope and hits a flying shoulderblock for two. Then he locks in the Masterlock and that's it.
Winner via submission: Chris Masters
Masters only gets a brief celebration when he is attacked by Tyler Reks, the man he had defeated for two straight weeks. Reks lifts him up and hits the Burning Hammer.
And the main event of the show is a replay of The Rock's promo on Raw from Monday. So I guess that's it. Good night everybody!
