WWE Superstars 2/18/10

Superstars open (no WWE open in my video this week), pyro and ballyhoo.  Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are our first hosts.  Tonight’s main event will see Rey Mysterio take on Mike Knox!

Evan Bourne & Primo vs. Carlito & Chavo Guerrero Jr.  Bourne and Carlito lock up.  Bourne kicks the fuck out of Carlito’s leg in response to being slapped.  Bourne with an awesome diving arm drag and another move for 2.  Carlito cuts him off and tags in Chavo.  Guerrero does some stuff with Bourne and Bourne hits him with a rana.  Awesome, quick paced action.  Chavo cuts Bourne off from making the tag and hits a backdrop suplex for 2.  Bourne hits Chavo with some kicks and makes the tag to Primo.  Primo runs wild on Chavo.  Primo goes for a springboard, but Carlito pushes him to cause him to crash and burn.  Carlito tags in to beat up his little brother.  Primo avoids the springboard elbow and hits a springboard cross body for 2.  Carlito sends Primo out of the ring.  Insta-commercials!  Primo plays face in peril.  Chavo knocks Bourne off the apron and hits the Gory Bomb.  Bourne makes it back in to make the save.  The bad guys continue to get the heat on Primo.  Primo fights back on Carlito.  Carlito avoids a leg drop, causing Primo to bust his ass.  Bourne gets the hot tag and runs wild on Chavo.  Awesome rana.  Bourne hits the double knee thing on Chavo, dropkicks Carlito off the apron, and hits a diving kick on Chavo.  Carlito saves.  Primo hits the Back Stabber on Carlito.  Bourne turns the Gory Bomb into a sunset flip for 2.  Bourne knees Chavo in the face and hits the Shooting Star press for the pin (8:51 shown).  Awesome little match.

Gail Kim is in action NEXT!

Gail Kim vs. Katie Lea Burchill.  Katie has new music.  It’s awful.  They lock up and trade some holds.  It’s actually pretty decent.  Gail gets a couple of quick 2 counts off of cradles.  Katie avoids one such cradle and sends Gail into the post.  Schoolgirl gets 2.  Katie works over Gail’s shoulder.  Gail makes her comeback.  Cross body off the top gets 2.  Gail hits a missile dropkick for 2.  Katie avoids Gail’s move and hits an enzuigiri to the shoulder.  Gail Kim rallies and hits her move (it’s apparently called the Eat Defeat.  Cool name.) for the pin in 4:15.  Maryse comes out to the stage and claps for Gail.  They show highlight of Gail’s shoulder getting punished, so maybe that’ll come into play at the PPV.  The match was pretty decent.

Elimination Chamber hype video.

Todd Grisham and Matt Striker take over commentary duties.

Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Mike Knox.  They lock up.  Knox backs Mysterio into the corner.  The referee forces a break.  Knox mauls Mysterio.  “Mauls” is an apt word because Knox very much resembles a bear.  Mysterio tries to fight back but gets killed with a clothesline.  Knox hits a leg drop for 2.  Mysterio hits a head scissors, then eats Knox’s boot.  Mysterio tries to springboard, but Knox bear hugs him, then transitions it into a backbreaker.  The mauling continues.  Mysterio gets a shot in and sets up the 619, but Knox bails to avoid it.  Mysterio tries the Bombs Away off the apron, but Knox powerbombs him into the post.  Insta-commercials.  Knox works over Mysterio’s back.  Knox puts Mysterio in the Torture Rack, then turns it into a big backbreaker for 2.  Knox goes to a bearhug on the mat.  Knox continues to abuse Mysterio’s back.  Mysterio kicks at Knox, low bridges him out of the ring, goes up top, and wipes him out with the Bombs Away.  Mysterio hits the springboard leg drop for 2.  Knox hits the Flying Bear (awesome name for his cross body) for 2.  Mysterio avoids a knee drop and hits the 619 and the springboard splash for the pin (9;33 shown).  Really good little match here.

Really fun edition of Superstars, with 3 matches ranging from decent to very good.
