WWE Superstars 12/23/10

Superstars open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Scott Stanford and Jerry Lawler are our first announcers here on Christmas Eve Eve.  Justin Roberts is the first ring announcer.

Zack Ryder vs. David Hart Smith.  Ryder says “WOO WOO WOO!”  Smith does a headlock and a shoulder block.  Ryder bails, slaps Smith, and tries to bail again.  Smith throws him back into the ring and locks in a half crab.  Ryder gets a rope break and goes to the apron.  Smith hits him with European uppercuts and clotheslines for 2.  Smith works Ryder’s arm.  Smith hits the stall suplex for 2.  Smith beats up Ryder on the outside.  Ryder catches Smith coming back in and manages to get the advantage.  Ryder hits a missile dropkick for 2.  Ryder applies a face lock.  Smith tries to rally, but gets planted with a flapjack for 2.  Ryder keeps the heat on and applies a body scissors.  Commercials.  Ryder works an abdominal stretch.  Smith escapes and rams Ryder into the corner.  Smith hammers Ryder with punches, then charges the corner and rams right into the turnbuckles.  Ryder tries to set up a superplex, but Smith fights him off.  He’s woozy from headbutts, but goes for a diving fist drop.  Ryder gets his foot up.  Smith catches it, then misses an elbow drop.  Smith hits a suplex.  Smith makes his comeback and hits a powerslam for 2.  Ryder avoids a leg drop and misses the Rough Ryder.  Smith hits a backdrop suplex for the pin in 12:02.  I didn’t really get into this, but it was okay.

NXT recap.

Tonight, LayCool vs. Beth Phoenix & Kelly Kelly!  Commercials.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

Yoshi Tatsu & Darren Young vs. Jimmy & Jey Uso.  Yoshi & Young is a delightfully random team.  Jey and Young lock up.  Young wins.  Jimmy distracts Young so Jey can get the jump on him.  Yoshi tags in.  YoshiYoung hit a double shoulder block.  Yoshi lands a kick for 2.  Jey ducks a spin kick and bails.  Yoshi chases him back in.  Jimmy gets the blind tag and jumps Yoshi.  Jimmy hits a jumping headbutt for 2.  Usos get the heat on Yoshi.  Yoshi catches Jimmy with a crucifix holds for 2.  Jimmy cuts him off and clamps on a headlock.  Jimmy goes for a backdrop suplex, but Yoshi lands on top for 2.  Yoshi lands an enzuigiri.  Young and Jey tag in.  Young runs wild.  Jimmy makes a blind tag.  Usos hit the Alley Oop (double team Samoan drop) and Jimmy pins Young in 5:28.  Fun little match.

Tonight, LayCool vs. Beth Phoenix & Kelly Kelly!  Commercials.

TLC song!

Jack Korpela and Matt Striker are now the announcers.

Raw Rebound.

Tony Chimel is now the ring announcer.

The “main event” is next.  Commercials.

Michelle McCool & Layla vs. Beth Phoenix & Kelly Kelly.  McCool grabs Beth in a headlock.  Beth breaks free and hits a shoulder block.  McCool sells it hard and tags out.  Layala sells her beating like crazy too.  They’re selling their injuries from the PPV match.  Kelly and Phoenix take turns abusing Layla.  Beth channels Tully Blanchard and hits a slingshot suplex for 2.  LayCool sell on the floor.  Commercials.  Kelly does a handspring to the corner on Layla.  No elbows, just hits Layla with her back.  McCool tags in.  Kelly hits a flying headscisssors and a Thesz press, then does that head banging shit.  McCool hits a belly to belly suplex for 2.  LayCool get the heat on Kelly.  Layla works Kelly’s hair, of course.  Kelly avoids a diving leg drop and makes the hot tag.  Beth runs wild.  Beth his a diving lariat on Layla and covers.  McCool saves and pulls Layla over to tag her in, but Beth won’t let her.  Beth goes for the Glam Slam.  McCool interferes and accidentally kicks Layla.  Beth cleans McCool’s clock and gives Layla the Glam Slam for the pin in 12:40.  I’ll bet $1,000 dollars the match wasn’t actually that long, but that’s the risk you take giving times for a taped show with commercials during matches.

Okay show this week.  Not a waste of time, but totally missable.
