WWE Superstars Thoughts - July 17, 2009

Gonna keep this one short, I actually watched Smackdown tonight (usually don't until Saturday afternoon) and don't want to fall behind on the reviews.

Cryme Tyme vs. The Hart Dynasty is developing into a rather enjoyable little feud. But really, too much of the teams wrestling, I know I've been harping on this for two weeks now, but would it kill WWE to give us a singles match in this rivalry? That used to be a staple of the tag feud, having the members of the team square off in singles competition, but now we're just getting the teams wrestling every week! I'm begging you WWE, next week on Superstars or Smackdown, give us JTG vs. Tyson Kidd, I really feel like those guys could put on a really unique match.

Alright, I'm gonna level with you here, I fast-forwarded through Brie Bella vs. Katie Lea Burchill. Really, it's nothing against these particular Divas, I think Katie Lea is criminally underused and the Bellas are improving, but I don't see the point in this. There's no women's division on ECW, so I'm not seeing the point of these recent matches. Give me a reason to care about this and I'll watch. Give me a reason to cheer for the Bellas even though they're cheaters, and I will, but right now the whole thing is completely illogical.

Big Show vs. Kofi Kingston was a lot better than I thought it would be. These David vs. Goliath matches usually don't work when Big Show is involved because he's just so damn huge, it's hard to really get immersed. When I see Show, I just feel like all it would take is one punch and his opponent would be in a coma, but this match felt relatively believable. Kofi's a tremendous talent, perhaps the most underrated star on Raw, and it was a pleasant surprise to see him create a fun match with Big Show. But I guess this means Triple Threat at Night of Champions with Evan Bourne in the mix? Personally, I'd like to see them get crazy and have a big six-man clusterfudge (I'm still edgy!) and throw in MVP, Swagger and The Miz. Wouldn't count on that though.

  1. After his interaction with Show recently, I can't help but feel the reason they're giving him this big match is so that Kingston can start facing off against some of the bigger stars and this is the start of a push for him.

    He looked like a future star last week on RAW (I think) when he ran Show or someone off.
