WWE Superstars – December 20, 2010

Well, I just finished Impact and so now I’m it’s time to watch Superstars. After that horrible ending to Impact, I’m hoping for some good wrestling on this show. Let’s get to it.

1. Jillian Hall v. Kelly Kelly. Well, Jillian always makes me happy, so at least we’re starting with something good. Jillian graces us with her version of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA”, am I the only person who enjoys this gimmick? Kelly looks nice, but Jillian much hotter and at least she has a ton of ability. Jillian with an armbar and Kelly climbs the ropes and flips out. Kelly with the Hurricanrana for a pin attempt, and now Kelly mounts Jillian. Jillian catches Kelly’s boot, but Kelly flips backward, and Jillian catches her with a clothesline for a near fall. Jillian tosses Kelly across the ring by her hair, at least her hair stayed attached; same can’t be said for Tara half the time in TNA. Jillian with a submission hold, and Kelly fights out, as Lawler just keeps talking about Kelly’s hotness. Hey King, there’s a match going on, quit staring at Kelly assets. Kelly avoids a clothesline and hits a pair of her own, then the spinning headscissor, which looks cool. Kelly misses a charge, but catches Jillian with the back elbow, and then climbs Jillian for a victory roll, but Jillian counters and Kelly lands on her coconut. No, not her coconuts, her head! Jillian gets a near fall, and continues the offense on Kelly, as she whips her in the far corner, but misses the handstand elbow as she gets a knee to the back from Kelly. Kelly with the Kelly Kick on Jillian for the win. 3.25/5 a good diva match, Kelly tries I can give her that. Hell, watch old Trish Stratus matches and you’ll see she was worse than Kelly, and look how good she became. If Kelly keeps training, she might be as good as Trish was one day, and Jillian is always amazing. Look at Jillian matches in OVW, she used to do the 450 that Evan Bourne does, if they let Jillian loose, she could dominate. It’s sad they really only have about six divas worth watching wrestle, Mickie, Beth, Jillian, Gail, Katie, Maryse and Melina, with Kelly and Eve improving slowly. As opposed to McCool, Bellas, Layla and Rosa who need to stay out of the ring and are eye candy. At least the Bella’s are smart enough to understand that, and basically all they do is escort people to the ring.

2. Shelton Benjamin v. Vance Archer. Shelton, the best pure athlete in the WWE, or so Josh says, and I have to agree. Why is he not a World Champion, seriously? Shelton & Charlie Haas could’ve been the next Kurt Angles, but don’t get the chance. Archer really should’ve come out in a Robin Hood outfit, which would’ve been too fun. We need more 80’s style characters around here. They lock up as the bell rings, and both men in the ropes, the ref pulls the apart, and they lock back together. Archer gets Shelton in the corner, and Archer with a cheap shot, Shelton fires back. We get a slugfest and Shelton with the advantage hits a running forearm. Archer botches something and sort of runs into Shelton, whatever. Archer with a kick, and runs in, but Shelton takes the legs out. Archer to the corner, and pulls Shelton face first into the buckle then fires a big clothesline on Shelton. Launched himself like an arrow! Archer goes for the reverse DDT, but Benjamin rolls him up for two. Archer tosses Benjamin over the top, and Benjamin hold the rope and pulls Archer out as we go to commercial. I hate commercial in the middle of a match, kills the pace. We come back and Archer twisting the head of Benjamin. Benjamin fights back, but whipped to the corner, as Shelton runs in, he eats a size 16 boot from Vance. Archer with a chicken wing sort of submission, slowing Benjamin down, Benjamin tries to fight back, but Archer over powers Shelton. Archer drapes Shelton on the middle rope, and drives the leg in the back of the head, then mounts and punches Benjamin in the back of the head. The crowd sees indifferent to the match, as they’re not too into this, sadly, it’s not a bad little match. Archer now with a rear choke/body scissor combo on Shelton, who fights his way out, as Benjamin is quite the scientific wrestler. Shelton fights to his feet, but one sledge from Archer takes him down. Byron asks Josh if he’s falling asleep, nice and classy, way to show guys respect. Archer lifts Shelton, but Shelton slides down, and nails Archer with a leg whip, giving Shelton time to recover. Shelton throwing right hands at the big man, but whipped to the corner. Shelton with the nice jump to the second rope and hits a flying forearm, then a pair of clotheslines. Shelton whipped in, and hits the spinning kick for a near fall. Shelton goes for a Boston Crab but Archer powers out, so Shelton with the German but Archer kicks out. Archer whipped in, holds the ropes as Shelton goes for a dropkick, and Shelton hits the mat. Vance follows up, and whips Shelton in the corner, then sets Benjamin on the top rope, and ties Shelton to the tree of woe! As Archer runs in, Shelton gets a boot up and locks in an Oklahoma Roll on the big man for the surprise win!!! 3.25/5 that was a very impressive match with a very unique finish. Who knew Lance Hoyt/Vance Archer had this much potential, he could be the surprise star of 2010. Benjamin continues his lateral movement through the WWE, never upward just side to side. Now the stupid Ask the Divas, just makes the women look like such dimwits.

3. Kane v. Chris Jericho. Former tag partners at Bragging Rights a couple months ago, now going at it, should be good. The bell rings, and Jericho stalls before getting in the ring, as Kane goes at him, Jericho slides out of the ring. Jericho gets back in the ring, and they lock up, Kane overpowers Jericho, who slides out again. Chris back in again, and avoids Kane and slaps him, which just fires up Kane beats the crap out of him in the corner. As the ref tries to pull them out of the corner, Jericho with an eye poke ala Piper! Then comes off the ropes, but Kane with an uppercut, then snapmare/low dropkick combo for a near fall. Kane always does the snapmare and dropkick together, as Stryker makes a Genius comment! Kane with a wristlock slowing down Jericho, but Jericho makes the rope, and Kane breaks. Kane caught coming in with a kick, and a running forearm, then a nice dropkick. Jericho with a series of forearms on Kane then kicks him in the ribs. I miss Kane with the mask, was much cooler back then. Kane gets Jericho in the ropes, and Kane runs at him only to tumble to the floor as we go to commercial. We come back and Jericho is stomping Kane in the corner, the climbs the Big Red Machine and starts to pound his head. Kane pushes him off, but Jericho comes back quickly and tries to ram Kane into the turnbuckle. Kane counters and Jericho eats buckle, then whipped in the far corner, but Kane caught coming in. Jericho off the second rope, right into a bearhug, as Kane drives Jericho into the corner. Kane runs into the corner, but no one home as Kane hits the ring post shoulder firsts. Jericho starts to work over the shoulder of Kane, as Kane overpowers Jericho and tosses him over his shoulder. Kane uses his speed to hit an enziguri on Kane for a near fall, and now Jericho irate jumps on Kane and starts to pummel him. In the battle of forgotten World Champions, Jericho locks in a sleeper on Kane, like Ziggler has done the last two weeks. Kane is slowly fading away, as Jericho holds the sleeper in, Kane makes it to his feet and backs Jericho into the corner to break the hold. Jericho goes for the bulldog, and Kane catches him in the side slam, then the big uppercut takes Jericho down. Kane whips him in and follows with the corner clothesline/side slam combo for a near fall. Kane climbs the ropes, and goes for the lariat, but Jericho with a perfect dropkick on the diving monster for two. Jericho hits the bulldog and goes for the lionsault, but Kane moves, and Jericho lands on his feet. Kane catches Jericho with the big boot for a two count, Kane than lifts Jericho, but Jericho slides down and clips the knee. Jericho goes for the Walls of Jericho, but Kane powers out, however he misses the corner clothesline and Jericho goes for the Codebreaker. Kane counters and readies for the chokeslam, as he lifts Jericho up, Jericho slides out of the ring and runs up the ramp. Jericho takes the countout loss, as the match ends in the cheapest way possible. 3.25/5 was a great match, but the ending ruined it for me. Was really into the match, but I hate those cheap finishes.

Match Recap

1. Kelly Kelly beat Jillian Hall 3.25/5
2. Shelton Benjamin pinned Vance Archer 3.25/5
3. Kane beat Chris Jericho by countout 3.25/5

A good episode of Superstars, as usual as all three matches were very enjoyable. The diva match was impressive, as I said Kelly gets better each time and Jillian is an amazing wrestler. Jillian deserves to be champion for more than five minutes, plain and simple. Shelton pulled a great match out of Archer, even with what looked like a botched move at one point, can be forgiven as this was still a good match. Kane/Jericho was building to a great match, with some impressive counters but then ending was dumb. At least the ending wasn’t as dumb as TNA’s, but I digress.
