WWE Superstars 8/5/10

Superstars open.  Todd Grisham and Matt Striker are the first announcers.  Tony Chimel is the first ring announcer.

Non-Title: Tiffany vs. WWE Women’s Champion Layla (w/ Michelle McCool).  They lock up.  Layla slaps Tiffany’s skirt or something.  Tiffany gets a sunset flip for 2.  They trade arm locks while LayCool act obnoxious.  Layla bails.  Tiffany follows, shoves Michelle down, and shoves her back in.  McCool kicks Tiffany in the leg.  McCool rams Tiffany’s leg into the apron.  Layla works the leg.  Layla applies an Indian death lock.  Fucking sweet!  Layla turns it into a pinning predicament for 2.  Tiffany makes her comeback and hits a bulldog headlock for 2.  Tiffany hits a suplex for 2.  Layla ducks a cross body and h its the neckbreaker for the pin in 5:11.  I want to punch Striker in the nuts every time he uses that obnoxious fake English accent. Typical crap, but the Indian death lock spot was cool.

NXT recap.  Because that horrid bullshit just HAS to be seen twice.

Tonight, Evan Bourne vs. Zack Ryder!  At least there might be something worth watching on this show.  The trailer for John Cena’s next movie that they also promise (threaten?) to show later will not be it.  Commercials.

They plug the SummerSlam song and WWE.com.

Curt Hawkins & Vance Archer vs. The Dudebusters.  Why the fuck are 2 lower-midcarder heel teams wrestling each other?  Hawkins and Barreta do some shit.  Croft tags in and gets a 2 count after a double team.  Archer tags in and beats up Croft.  Dudebusters double team Croft.  Archer knocks Croft out of the ring.  Commercials.  Hawkins and Archer get the heat on Croft.  Barreta gets the warm tag and runs wild.  Barreta hits a springboard dropkick, but Archer saves.  Clusterfuck ensues.  Croft low bridges Archer out of the ring and goes for a dive, but Archer avoids it.  Archer makes the blind tag and hits Barreta with a boot.  Archer hits the reverse DDT.  Hawkins tags in and hits the diving elbow drop on Barreta for the pin in 9:21.  It was fine, but who the fuck cares?  I mean, I actually go out of my way to watch fucking SUPERSTARS and even I don’t give a fuck about seeing these teams wrestle each other.  Or anybody else really.  Hawkins cuts a promo on the Hart Dynasty, because they want a title shot.

“Legendary” trailer.  Whatever.

Bourne vs. Ryder TONIGHT!  Commercials.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

The Miz hype video.

Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole are the announcers, which means Justin Roberts is now the ring announcer.

Raw Rebound.

Cole and Lawler hype the SummerSlam card.

The main event is next!  Commercials.

Evan Bourne vs. Zack Ryder.  Ryder stands on the middle rope and taunts.  They lock up.  Ryder backs Bourne into the corner and cheap shots him to get the advantage.  Bourne hits a sliding kick for 2.  Ryder hits a clothesline for 2.  Ryder works over Bourne.  Bourne lands a dropkick and a rana… and another dropkick.  Bourne clotheslines him to the apron and kicks him to the floor.  Bourne goes for a dive, but Ryder moves and Bourne hits the guardrail.  Commercials.  During the commercials there’s one for Superstars featuring Cryme Tyme, who broke up 4 months ago.  Bourne tries to fight out of  a rear chin lock as they randomly show another shot of the announcers introducing themselves.  Ryder covers for 2.  Ryder hits a neckbreaker for 2, then grabs another chin lock.  Bourne fights back.  Ryder hits a kick in the corner for 2, then locks in a crossface.  Bourne lands a kick and gets an inside cradle for 2.  Bourne hits a dropkick to the corner for 2.  Bourne tries to go up top, but Ryder grabs his leg.  Ryder hits a sit-out spinebuster for 2.  Ryder goes up top.  Bourne cuts him off, backdrops him to the mat, and hits the Shooting Star press for the pin in 13:02.  Okay match.

Mediocre show this week, which is depressing.  The main event was solid, though.
