10/4/12 Superstars

Wade Barrett vs. Tyson Kidd: **

David Otunga vs. Michael McGillicutty: *1/4

Tensai vs. Yoshi Tatsu: 1/2*

Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow vs. Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso: **1/2

Barrett and Kidd start Superstars off. Barrett with that striker and street-fight style, while Kidd comes back with quick, high-flying stuff. Wade's offense is fairly simple, but believable and effective. Souvenir gets three for Wade in a nice match.

Otunga and his excess body oil get wrestling time against McGillicutty. Frankly, both of these guys are supposed to be heels, but the fans seem to at least care about this. Honestly never woulda thought a couple years ago that Otunga would have a seemingly more secure place on the roster (in terms of character development) than McGillicutty. Verdict (spinebuster) wins it for Otunga.

No Sakamoto again as Tensai comes out for action. Tensai's spot on the roster a bit more in question, especially after the whole deal with Ryback on RAW. But hey, he still gets short wins over guys like Yoshi Tatsu. Not really saying much, though. Yoshi's barely won anything lately. Short statement on the mic in Japanese.

Main event is Usos and Rhodes Scholars in a rematch of the tag title tournament match. Announcers mention Usos being a natural team as brothers, while Rhodes Scholars are new as a tag team. In other words, Rhodes Scholars find a way to win, right? Somewhat lengthy match here for free TV. Rhodes Scholars had a few shining moments as a tag team. A bit of chaos at the end. Sandow pins Jimmy with his hangman's neckbreaker for three. Nice momentum for Rhodes Scholars as they continue their march in the tag title tournament.
