3/29/12 Superstars

Alex Riley vs. Heath Slater: *1/2

Justin Gabriel vs. Tyson Kidd: **1/4

Riley and Slater start things off. A-Ry is getting better on the comeback offense. Slater's finisher doesn't impress me at all.

Long video packages with Punk/Jericho and Taker/HHH are shown. All about the WM buildup anyway. That, and the WWE Hall of Fame. HOF ceremony will be on Monday night before RAW.

Too bad they won't actually promote divas matches like Beth/Eve vs. Kelly/Menounos. Granted, they got "Extra" to help with this, but regardless, WWE actually cares about it.

Edge is in some movie called "Bending the Rules." Straight to DVD? Lovely.

Lord Tensai vignette is awesome. He'll debut after WM. Should be interesting to see how he's used.

Kidd and Gabriel in the main event. Two faces here, so expect a fun bout. Great stuff, very fluid moves throughout the match. Big moves and counters. Gabriel even has a bloody lip/mouth. Battle scars! Rollup for a finish, but a good decision to do that here. I hope to see more from these two.

Oh, I like how Striker is now supposed to be "kidnapped and missing" on NXT but he's still doing Superstars commentary. WWE doesn't always make sense anyway.
