Kick-Out's Superstars Thoughts - May 14, 2009

Really? Hornswoggle vs. Big Show? Really WWE? Superstars flew by last night, after fast-forwarding through all the video packages and commercials, I think I watched the entire show in less than a half hour.

Rey Mysterio vs. Shelton Benjamin is the front runner for TV Match of the Week, really good stuff between these two. John Morrison was good on commentary, and I hate to sound like a broken record, but it's still just so strange to listen to him as a good guy. JR mentioned on his blog that Mysterio got banged up in this match, he definitely wasn't moving too gingerly after he won, but you'd never know it when he's actually wrestling. Mysterio has just been absolutely phenomenal these last few months, the guy definitely deserves a run with the World Heavyweight Title somewhere down the line.

Christian vs. Mark Henry was actually way better than I expected it to be. Christian took a nasty bump with that big clothesline towards the end of the match, thankfully he was okay. I liked the ending too, kept Henry looking strong (he is the World's Strongest Man after all), and kept Christian looking like the smart, wily veteran. One gripe, not about this match in particular but all Henry matches, I'd like to see more from Tony Atlas. I'm glad WWE has been utilizing managers more, but whenever Mark Henry wrestles, Atlas is just kinda there. Give him something to do!

Funny thing last night, I had not yet watched Superstars, but I suggested on Twitter that Goldust, Festus and Hornswoggle should form a stable... how crazy that Goldust came to the rescue during the Hornswoggle/Big Show match? I think there's potential for a lot of comedy gold (get it? Because Hornswoggle's a leprechaun?) between these two and I hope this wasn't just a one time thing.
