12/22/11 Superstars

Justin Gabriel vs. Heath Slater: *1/2

Hunico vs.Ezekiel Jackson: *

Alex Riley vs. Michael McGillicutty: *

Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne vs. Tyler Reks & Curt Hawkins: **

Eden Stiles' final show as ring announcer, I believe. Not bad, just not memorable.

I'm really wondering if Slater and Gabriel will get back together in 2012. They're floundering as midcard talent (if that) as singles stars. Look what happened with Primo...when he started teaming with Epico, Primo became relevant again. This match really didn't get much reaction early on (and even during the ring entrances). At least Gabriel got to fly in this one. The match went longer than I thought it would not by much.

Whoa, Big Zeke got a little hair on his head now! Meng's son (Donny Marlow) again with Hunico this week...and his WWE name is Camacho. Not bad...they gave Hunico a relatively clean win over Zeke (the only time Camacho interfered was to swing momentum).

McGillicutty, when he came out for his ring entrance, almost did a Randy Orton-like "greatness" pose. I wish creative actually had a gimmick and a feud for this guy. A-Ry has been in the doghouse, just from what I've read. It's either not totally accurate, or A-Ry is bouncing back. Average match here.

Good main event. Match had a nice flow and the crowd liked what they saw. Figure WWE also has to let Air Boom win matches as well. It would make a Primo/Epico tag title win a bit more impressive.
