8/30/12 Superstars

Ryback vs. Johnny Curtis: *

Primo & Epico vs. Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso: **3/4

Jinder Mahal vs. Alex Riley: *3/4

Ryback's starting Superstars? Cool. It's been a slow push for Ryback, as he's having more competitive matches with midcarders now. "Feed me more!" chants really over with the fans. Ryback nukes Curtis, no surprise.

Primo/Epico face Usos next. Longer match than I expected. Usos flew in this one early on. Good tag wrestling from both teams. Jimmy with a splash at least 2/3 across the ring, barely made it. Rosa-ference allowed the cousins to steal one.

Saturday Morning Slam will be on at 10 on the CW Network. Completely original programming? I'll probably give it a look if someone tosses it on YouTube or something.

A-Ry's left forearm taped up as he faces Jinder in the main event tonight. Mahal has been a very good midcarder; he put over Rollins on NXT (match was taped weeks ago, only shown this past Wednesday) and now he goes back to his matches against A-Ry.

Simple main event here, far from the excellent stuff WWE allowed for the NXT Gold Rush tournament finals. A-Ry with a fleeting chance to win, but Mahal's knee and Camel Clutch ends it.
