6/14/12 Superstars

Zack Ryder vs. Michael McGillicutty: **

Titus O'Neil & Darren Young vs. Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso: *1/2

Hunico vs. Justin Gabriel: ***1/4

Ryder and McGillicutty go at it to start the show. Good, lengthy match following the usual pro wrestling match style. You know, face with the upper hand first, then the heel, then the comeback. Several good near falls after the Ryder comeback. Hot crowd. I still don't understand why McGillicutty doesn't just use the Hennig name. Seems like many sons and daughters of famous past WWE superstars have done so.

Titus now styling D-Young's hair before the match? Guess tag partners gotta go the extra mile these days. Anyway, match against the Usos was quite basic. Hot tag to Jimmy produced the usual Uso moves that basically bore me more often than not. Primetime Players (that'd be Titus and Darren) hit that Demolition-like finisher for three.

Yes, WWE is on YouTube. Nine different shows. I don't watch any of them. Although Santino's show is reportedly pretty entertaining....

It shouldn't be surprising that Gabriel and Hunico got the longest match. These two guys are pretty damn talented. They fly pretty frequently. Each guy with restholds focusing on the shoulders. It's these two guys I'd like to push for titles. Wish WWE would actually pull the trigger on that fairly soon. They give all those lights to Sin Cara and all the pyros/squash matches to Ryback, but I'd rather watch two or more guys work a great, competitive match every week. Camacho played a big factor at the end. Hunico with an impressive pinning move for three.

Yes, Gabriel pulled a move out of AJ Styles with that backflip off the ropes into a reverse DDT. Hunico showed some deceptive power. All that versatility, all those reversals and near falls, are gold to me. I just wish the crowd was into it a bit more.
