2/9/12 Superstars

Justin Gabriel vs. Heath Slater: ***1/2

Yoshi Tatsu vs. Johnny Curtis: *

Primo & Epico vs. JTG & Michael McGillicutty: 3/4*

Jack Swagger vs. Santino Marella: *3/4

Gabriel starts off yet another Superstars. Not that I'm complaining. One of the guys that actually shows promise to be a star. On the other hand, Slater has yet to impress me in a significant manner. Good stuff again from Justin. Several near falls in this one for JG, which actually got the crowd involved. Heath with a AA spinebuster?! WTF? Slater really showed flashes of Kurt Angle here. OK, the guy finally impressed me. How many times did Slater counter Gabriel?! Good show fellas. I really enjoyed this.

Oh fun. So Curtis can get off NXT now? I mean, I know he's an NXT alum, but eh. He hasn't shown me anything, really -- other than fairly bad acting. Then again, WWE hasn't given Johnny much of a shot yet. Average match here. Yoshi's kick to the head has to hurt. Heck, any of his kicks should hurt.

Since when does JTG and MM team up? Gotta love just throwing people together. Numbers game from the cousins and Rosa. It's been a while since JTG had a hot tag. Hot tag didn't last long. Blind tag and backstabber out of nowhere!

Main event with Santino and Swagger. Heck man, I forgot Swagger was U.S. champ. Shouldn't he actually be defending this title at some point? Ha, Swagger has to grab Santino's ass while doing pushups. Santino with a good comeback. OH, it's Mr...Cobra! Aw, good counter from Swagger. Ankle lock finishes it.

I'm still scratching my head why the hell Khali's in the chamber. I mean, he's the LAST guy I'd want in there. Argh.
