WWE Superstars 6/4/09 (Repost)

WWE open, Superstars open, pyro, then Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler welcome us to Superstars!  Tonight, Jeff Hardy & R-Truth take on Chris Jericho & Dolph Ziggler!  But first…

Goldust & Hornswoggle vs. Brian Kendrick & Jamie Noble.  If there was any justice in this world, Kendrick and Noble would be a top tag team, because they’re both awesome.  Unfortunately, they’re just here to job to the freak family.  Hornswoggle puts on Kendrick’s ring jacket and parades around in it while Goldust starts the match.  Goldust gets the better of Noble, so Kendrick tags in the show him how it’s done and gets the his arm punished.  Hornswoggle tags in and gets beat up by Kendrick.  Noble is reluctant to beat up Hornswoggle, so Kendrick continues to bully him.  Hornswoggle makes a comeback and makes the hot tag.  Obligatory “Vintage Goldust” line from Cole.  Goldust suplexes an interfering Noble out of the ring.  Kendrick goes for the Kendrick, but Goldust hits the the spinning brainbuster (I forget what he calls it) and tags in Hornswoggle, who hits the tadpole splash on Kendrick for the win at 3:40.  Fun little match, I guess.

John Cena/Big Show video package, then commercials.

Back from break, Matt Striker, Josh Matthews, and the ECW Champion, Christian, are at the commentary table.

David Hart Smith (w/ Tyson Kidd & Natalya) vs. Tommy Dreamer.  Smith controls early.  Tommy gets a quick schoolboy, then nails Smith in the face and starts to build momentum with some unorthodox offense.  Smith starts to get the better of it on the outside, but he takes his eyes off the ball to look at Christian, which allows Tommy to dive off the apron and nail him as we go to commercial!  I try to sneak a quick restroom break, and when I come back Smith has the advantage.  Dreamer fights back and applies the Texas Cloverleaf, which is incorrectly identified by the announcers as a Sharpshooter.  Christian accidentally provides the distraction for Tyson Kidd to interfere with a kick to Dreamer, which allows Smith to get the pin at 8:45.  Commercials.

Jim Ross and Todd Grisham take over commentary duties.  They introduces a Jeff Hardy/Edge video package, then pimp the rest of the Extreme Rules card.

Chris Jericho comes down for the main event, but first cuts a promo on Rey Mysterio.  Commercials!

Chris Jericho & Dolph Ziggler vs. Jeff Hardy & R-Truth.  Ziggler gets the better of Hardy on the opening exchange.  Jeff fights back, but Jericho attacks him from behind and sends him into the guardrail to let the bad guys get the advantage.  Lukewarm tag to R-Truth, he comes in against Jericho.  He’s fired up to start, but gets taken down as we take what is hopefully our final commercial break.  We come back to Truth playing face in peril.  He takes the beating for a while, then makes the hot tag to Hardy, who hits the Twist of Fate and the Swanton Bomb on Ziggler for the win at 11:36.

Fun show.  Should I punish myself by watching Impact now?
