Kick-Out's Superstars Thoughts - June 25, 2009

Jack Swagger vs. Evan Bourne to start off the night? Awesome, I don't think I've seen these two in one-on-one action before. And what a match it was, the counters and moves that Bourne came up with were just insane. The springboard Asai Double Knee, flipping out of a hiptoss, landing on his freaking feet after Swagger rolled away from the Shooting Star Press?! Seriously, I'm beginning to wonder if the laws of physics apply to him or if he's just that good. Great match that could be a contender for TV match of the year, I just wish it would've went a little longer.

Dolph Ziggler vs. Jimmy Wang Yang wasn't bad either considering it was basically a squash match. Yang is highly underrated and great in his role, he made Ziggler look great. I really can't believe that a guy named Dolph Ziggler is one of the fastest rising stars in WWE, but the guy is playing his role to perfection (pun intended) and he's deserving of any success that comes his way in the future.

Kofi Kingston vs. Matt Hardy vs. MVP for the United States Championship was rock solid and a great main event for this week's show. Rumors abound that Matt Hardy tore an abdominal muscle during the match and may require surgery, but Matt's done a good job on Twitter telling people to not believe everything they read. Hope Matt's okay, since he was really the glue that held this match together. Shame these guys aren't on the PPV Sunday, but maybe that's another reason why WWE should re-think their schedule.

Overall, another great week for Superstars. We didn't exactly get any A-listers, but a Triple Threat match for the US Title, a nice showing for Dolph Ziggler and a tremendous opening bout with two of ECW's brightest young stars makes this one of the better episodes of WWE's newest program.


  1. Did John Morrison and Evan Bourne ever tangle one on one in ECW?

  2. Yeah, Morrison's last night on ECW actually. One of the best TV matches I've seen this year.
