12/29/11 Superstars

Yoshi Tatsu vs. Tyson Kidd: **

Darren Young vs. Trent Barreta: **1/2

JTG vs .Alex Riley: *1/2

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

Looks like Tyson Kidd is growing a faux-hawk like Miz. What is it with these faux-hawks nowadays? At this rate, he'll look like Miz in the next month or two. I'm glad he and Yoshi fought each other again. They seem to gel in the ring.

Hey, Darren Young finally gets a non-NXT match (again)! Young dropped Barreta suplex-style on the ring apron. Ouch. I'm liking what Young has shown me. He looks more comfortable in the ring and really embraces his heel character. Real impressive moves shown here. Young hit his finisher (a.k.a. what Roderick Strong would use) from the second rope. Didn't think I'd like this one, but I did. Just wish the crowd was more into it.

They finally gave a name to Riley's finisher: "The Final Score." Good name. Oh, and at least the announcing team explained Tamina's relationship with JTG a bit more. Not caring for Scott Stanford's announcing, although he has gotten better since he first debuted.

Main event was also a great one. Reks had a real impressive gutwrench suplex slam move in that match. Fluid match, especially at the end. A nice way to end Superstars in 2011!
