10/20/11 Superstars

Jinder Mahal vs. Ted DiBiase: *1/2

Santino Marella vs. Heath Slater: *

Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne vs. Drew McIntyre & Michael McGillicutty: **1/2

Mahal basically came out to very little crowd reaction. And "DiBiase Posse"? Really? Yay for rhyming, I guess. Not bad here. "Sands of Time" is a nice name for a finisher. The move itself -- a full nelson slam -- I don't care for it.

This was probably Slater's last match before getting hit with his 30-day suspension. I find it amazing how such a simple (and lame) move can get so much crowd reaction. Yeah, I'm talking about the Cobra.

McGillicutty apparently either has a new tag partner in McIntyre (Macs unite!) or could be buried in singles. By the way, Otunga now has a role that better suits him: being a legal advisor to Laurinaitis (although I'm unsure if that's official). Anyway, the son of Mr. Perfect is just that...he has not been able to escape the legendary status of his late father. Part of that is due to shoddy booking, but Michael needs some sort of spark, make a huge impact somehow. I think his current finisher is lame, and his mic skills are average at best. I guess WWE decided to put these two guys together for the hell of it.

As for the tag match, I really liked some of the tag moves Air Boom had. Some were really quite innovative. Good match here.
