After a very impressive second episode of NXT, that brings us to tonight’s episode of WWE Superstars. Tonight’s main event is Chris Jericho v. Goldust, which should be an interesting match. Nice to see the World Champion has now worked both NXT and Superstars, which is better than Batista has done as a Champion. Then again that’s the best part of Superstars is no HHH, Batista, Undertaker, HBK or the rest of the egos. With that, let’s get to the ring for our opening match.

1. Kofi Kingston v. Chavo Guerrero. Is it just me or did Kofi’s push come to a screeching halt? Chavo with a quick go behind, into a snapmare, to a neckbreaker. Kofi counters to an armbar, and Chavo counters to a side headlock, nice little sequence there. Kofi shoots him in, and Chavo back with a shoulderblock, but Kofi kicks Chavo off and jumps over him twice. Kofi nails a big forearm smash and then back to the armbar. Chavo gets a knee in and takes down Kingston with a European uppercut, and Chavo is cut and the match stops. This is just pure crap when they do this, just kills the match dead. Chavo gets handed a towel and wipes himself and goes right back on Kofi. Kofi able to take down Chavo with a leg scissor and follows with a dropkick, then the corner mount. Chavo comes out of the corner with a nice rolling kick for a one count, called a two by the clueless twit Michael Cole. Chavo chokes Kofi on the ropes and continues the offense with an armbar of his own. Kofi able to fight his way up, but Chavo gets another knee in and tosses Kingston to the floor. Chavo dives over the top rope onto Kingston, which always looks cool; Chavo tosses Kingston in and slingshots himself onto Kofi for a near fall. Chavo with a hammerlock, with Kofi flips out of, sending Chavo out of the ring, and Kofi follows with a suicide dive then tosses Guerrero back in. Kingston comes back in via the top rope, but Chavo catches him and attempts a superplex, but Kofi blocks and knocks Chavo down. Kofi hits the cross body and follows up with a series of chops and a dropkick. Kofi connects with the Boom Drop and readies for Trouble in Paradise. Chavo rolls to the apron and Chavo gets a shoulder block on Kingston, and then rolls him into a single leg crab. Kofi able to get the ropes, and misses Trouble in Paradise but the second attempt connects for the win. 8.25/10 a great opening match, as Chavo is always impressive in the ring. All that talent is wasted so badly, as Chavo is a hell of an athlete and could be used so much better then what he is.

2. William Regal v. Evan Bourne. We start with a lockup and Regal quickly goes to a wristlock, and Bourne tries to twist out, and winds up on the shoulders of Regal. Regal shrugs him off and continues with the wristlock. Evan monkey flips out and takes Regal down with a head scissors followed by a dropkick. Bourne with a side headlock and Regal sends him to the corner and connects with a clothesline, slowing Bourne down. Regal shoots him in and nails the vicious clothesline followed by the butterfly Suplex for a near fall. Regal with a rear chinlock, as the crowd solidly behind Bourne, who counters out and eats a big left from William. Regal calls Bourne pathetic as he stands over Bourne and nails a kick for a near fall. Regal back to the rear chinlock, and bends Bourne backwards. Bourne tries to fight out as Regal keeps attempting the STF. Regal cranks the pressure on Bourne, who finally gets to his feet and sends Regal to the corner to break the hold. Bourne ducks under the clothesline and nails a kick to the back, but Regal comes back with a T-Bone Suplex but misses the Knee Trembler. Bourne hits a knee lift of his own and climbs the ropes. Bourne nails Air Bourne for the victory. 6.75/10 a solid match, but the ending came out of nowhere. It felt like someone said end the match and they went to the ending as it just happened. Regal dominated the entire match and really took it to the youngster. Would’ve been a higher rating had it ended better, either going longer or Regal wins via submission would’ve made more sense.

3. Mike Knox v. Kane. Glad to see one of the best big men on TV, feels like it’s been a while. Of course with the opponent being Kane, Knox is screwed. Don’t understand the sudden and random push of Kane, as he does nothing for a while and then suddenly back to the top, seems odd. They lock up and Knox gets Kane in the corner and opens up on him. Knox walks into an uppercut from Kane, who follows with the snapmare/dropkick combo for a near fall. Kane sends Knox in and misses a clothesline as Knox comes back with the Flying Bear for a near fall. Knox nails a series of shoulders in the corner and hammers Kane before shooting him in. Knox eats a big boot from Kane, who sends Knox in the corner and follows with the corner clothesline/side slam combo for a near fall. Kane climbs the ropes and Knox catches him with a big boot, which looked impressive and should be the end for Kane. Knox drives the knee into the face of Kane and sends him to the corner. Kane catches Knox charging in and hits the chokeslam for the three. 5/10 basically a Kane squash, as Knox got some offense but then end was never in doubt. Why’s Kane being pushed again and Knox being buried? I’d rather see Knox in the MITB then Kane, Knox could be a future star.

4. Chris Jericho v Goldust. So Goldust is now on Smackdown, wonder how long till he gets future endeavored? They lock up and Goldust playing mind games causes Jericho to bail out of the ring. Jericho slowly gets back in and they lock up again, as Jericho with a side headlock and Goldust shoots him in. Jericho comes back with a shoulderblock, knocking Goldust to his knees. Goldust gets a kick in and sends Jericho in, but reversed and Goldust comes back with a butt bounce then clotheslines Jericho over the top as we go to commercial. We come back as Goldust misses a charge and hits the buckle, Jericho follows with an enziguri. Jericho quickly pounds and chokes the Golden One; Jericho does the Hulk Hogan hand to the ear. Goldust wildly swings and falls to the mat, as Jericho continues the offense. Jericho with a bottom rope hotshot, sending Goldust to the floor, as Jericho proudly poses in the ring. Goldust gets back in and Jericho goes for a slam and Goldust rolls him up for a near fall. This angers Jericho who comes back with a vicious clothesline, then rams Goldust’s head into the buckle. Jericho goes for a superplex, but Goldust blocks and sends Jericho down. Goldust dives down, but Jericho hits a perfect dropkick for another near fall. Jericho argues with the ref and then quickly goes back to Goldust with a rear chinlock, but Goldust fights out. Jericho charges in and eats two clotheslines then the dropping uppercut. Goldust follows with an inverted atomic drop but misses a charge and Jericho hits the bulldog. Jericho goes for a lionsault but Goldust moves and Jericho lands on his feet, but Goldust catches him in a powerslam for a near fall. Goldust goes for the Curtain Call, but Jericho reverses out and locks in the Walls of Jericho for the victory. 8/10 a great match, Goldust can still pull of a good match. Jericho’s the busiest man in the WWE as he’s on all four shows, that’s what you call the true MVP of WWE.

Match Recap:

1. Kofi Kingston beat Chavo Guerrero 8.25/10

2. Evan Bourne pinned William Regal 6.75/10

3. Kane crushed Mike Knox 5/10

4. Chris Jericho beat Goldust 8/10

A pretty good episode, but would’ve been better if they skipped the Knox/Kane match. I’m a huge Knox fan, but the match was pointless and I’d rather see Regal/Bourne get another 5 minutes. Goldust continues to be impressive with his comeback, as he keeps putting on good matches. Kofi and Chavo had a very fun enjoyable match as well. This is why I love watching Superstars, always a series of good matches.

You mentioned a “certain” torrent site that you couldn’t mention on Scott’s blog that you might be posting old Coliseum DVDs on? I’d love to know where that was. Also, are they DVD files, or do you also have AVIs?

Thanks for the reviews.

Hi, the Coliseum DVDs will get posted at
http://www.xwt-classics.net/index.php

Probably won’t be till May or June, posting SNME DVDs right now. They’ll be DVD files, not AVI. 🙂
