9/20/12 Superstars

Ted DiBiase vs. JTG: **

Drew McIntyre vs. Jinder Mahal: *3/4

David Otunga vs. Tyson Kidd: *1/4

Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso vs. Titus O'Neil & Darren Young: *3/4

Ted DiBiase returns to TV after all those injuries (ankle. shoulder, wrist) and now hails from Mississippi. Same gimmick. JTG's still from Brooklyn, and the new ring gear hasn't done anything for his career. I wanna go to one of those DiBiase Posse parties. Pretty good match here, DiBiase must have shaken off most of that ring rust. Dream Street wins it for Ted.

Drew McIntyre has a great entrance theme, but he's been stuck in the midcard ranks ever since his whole "Chosen One" gimmick and feud with then-Smackdown GM Teddy Long ended. He seemed destined for a nice rise to the top, but perhaps it's been a blessing in disguise. Drew's had some awesome matches with various opponents since and I find he's one of the more underrated guys on the roster. Decent win for Drew with his Future Shock DDT.

Otunga actually WON against Tyson Kidd? Amazing. Pretty basic match, and thankfully, Kidd's offense made it much more watchable.

Usos and Primetime Players in the main event. Another great tag match with nice crowd reaction. Fairly formulaic as usual, but with a few tag team moves thrown in. Primetime Players with the win. Striker calls it Devastation Inc. Nice name. "Millions of dollars!"
