6/30/11 Superstars

Beth Phoenix vs. Gail Kim: **

Chris Masters vs. JTG: *3/4

Alicia Fox vs. Kaitlyn: 1/4*

Trent Barreta, Jimmy Uso, & Jey Uso vs. Tyson Kidd, Heath Slater, & Justin Gabriel: ***1/2

We start off with a divas match here. Wow, that was actually very good stuff. Very action-packed. I really liked it. Each played to their strengths. Nice sportsmanship at the end...felt almost like ROH for a sec.

JTG with a hell promo. Not a bad match here with Chris Masters.

Andy Leavine (Tough Enough winner) with a small video package update. Apparently, from what I've heard, he's still too green and is in FCW for more training. We'll see over time if Luke should have been chosen the Tough Enough winner instead.

Divas match time. Kaitlyn gets her time to shine tonight against Alicia Fox. I preferred Rosa Mendes with lighter hair, really. Finish was botched a bit.

Six-man tag match. They got a lot of time, so should be good.

Again, Usos doing the haka before the match. I like it because it establishes an identity for the Usos, makes them stand out. Tyson Kidd got rid of his little crown of hair in the front, as a note. Usos no-sell the headbutt...VINTAGE SAMOAN!

During the mid-match TV commercial, Mark Henry gets a featured video package. I guess Henry is finally being pushed as a reward for his years of loyal WWE service.

Nice spot with Heath Slater doing a Kurt Angle-like spot, springing to the ropes and doing a top-rope powerslam on an Uso. A "Holy Shit!" moment with a Barreta superplex to Kidd to the floor onto the other four guys. Incredible finish, especially for a Superstars match. Amazing match here to finish up the show. Probably the best Superstars match I've ever seen.
