WWE Superstars Thoughts - September 10, 2009

Keeping this short, we've got a lot of things to get to before the PPV

Kane vs. Jimmy Wang Yang
to start us off? Well that's just mean. In all fairness, Kane going nuts with the Singapore Him was pretty brutal, but not enough to get me to care about the feud with Khali or their match tonight.

Sheamus vs. Yoshi Tatsu up next, apparently Thursday wasn't a good night to be Asian in WWE. I'm surprised Mike Knox didn't beat up Funaki. Anyway, decent match, the crowd still loves Yoshi Tatsu, despite the fact that he's been on quite a losing streak, which did not come to an end in this match.

Nikki Bella vs. Katie Lea Burchill was there to remind us that The Bellas are on ECW, but does anyone actually care? Another lame Bellas match where they cheat to win, which does nothing except tell me that Katie Lea is the superior competitor. The only thing of note to come out of this match is the fact that Katie Lea has her own theme music now.

Dolph Ziggler vs. Slam Master J was much better than J's match a few weeks back against Charlie Haas, but nothing that's going to be remembered next week. Lot of glorified squash matches on this week's episode with Ziggler unsurprisingly picking up the win. Damn shame we won't get to see him compete tonight at Breaking Point.

The Miz & Jack Swagger vs. Kofi Kingston & Primo saved this show from being completely forgettable, I loved this one. Monday night's awesome crowd carried over into Superstars, staying on their feet throughout this entire contest. The Miz picked up the victory by pinning Kofi Kingston, and that's what I assume led to their US Title match being added to the PPV tonight.

Five matches? Really? A bit overkill, especially when three of them were squashes and the other one was a Divas match featuring the Bellas. Still, with the main event being as good as it was, it made this show worthwhile. Smackdown review on the way!

  1. Katie Lea had that music the last time she wrestled, just this time it has lyrics.
