WWE Superstars Thoughts - December 17

Kicking things off with Smackdown's contribution to Superstars, it's Cryme Tyme vs. Mike Knox & Dolph Ziggler, the battle of guys who lost all momentum once the temperature started to drop and leaves began to change color. Cryme Tyme was doing so well when working with Shaq and feuding with JeriShow heading into SummerSlam; Knox was beginning to show some ability to be interesting with his Professor Death gimmick; and we all know about the meteoric rise and fall of Dolph Ziggler. A solid match, but I can't see it doing anything for any of these guys, especially Ziggy & Knox, who were on the losing end of this contest.

Vance Archer vs. Tommy Dreamer from ECW up next and I'm sorry, I just can't bring myself to care about Archer. He does the creepy stare really well, but that's about it... I really seem to remember Archer being fun to watch in TNA, especially when the "Hoytamania" gimmick was going on, but the intense monster just doesn't work for him, especially when he's doing the same stuff we saw Sheamus do just a couple months ago.

Main Event Time! MVP vs. Jack Swagger in a rematch from last week and from their feud from back in the summer; even though these guys have had a lot of matches this year, this one was undoubtedly their best yet. An awesome match, lots of back and forth action, the crowd was hot (this was before Dennis Miller and a terrible Raw put them to sleep) and served as a big reminder that both Swagger and MVP are being completely wasted on Monday nights and should be rising up the card much like Kofi Kingston and Sheamus. MVP picks up the win, giving both men a win over the other in this recent series, let's hope the rubber match can find it's way to Monday Night Raw.

Great main event saves a lackluster show; it wasn't even that the other two matches were bad, I'm just too distracted by how far Cryme Tyme, Ziggler & Knox have fallen lately and Archer flat-out bores me. Seriously though, if this main event doesn't serve as a wake-up call to the abilities of both MVP and Swagger, I don't know if they'll ever be pulled out of this rut.
