[TV Review] WWE Superstars – 11/22/2012

This week on Superstars, Zack Ryder/Santino Marella square off against 3MB and in the “main event” Darren Young is in singles action against Justin Gabriel.

Since this is a short show, check out my review of it right below. If you’re looking for a more full and detailed recap check out my coverage over at Lords of Evolution.

*****

Match #1: 3MB (Heath Slater/Jinder Mahal) [w/ Drew McIntyre] defeated Zack Ryder/Santino Marella in 8:48.

  • This was billed as a “Survivor Series pre-show rematch” but to be honest this is more like a rematch of the last 5,000 times they’ve worked together since 3MB first began. That being said the two teams do work well together and this was another decent match with the highlight being Marella showing off some of his actual wrestling talent in the midst of his normal comedy routine. The guy has way more talent than any of us probably realize. Also as a side note, I think McIntyre might be the highlight of 3MB; he’s really taken a shine to the gimmick and is outshining even Slater at this point on presence alone. (C+)

Main Event: Justin Gabriel [w/ Tyson Kidd] pinned Darren Young [w/ Titus O’Neil] in 9:08.

  • Considering that last week’s Superstars main event was The Great Khali Vs. JTGI automatically consider this an upgrade (I also didn’t watch last week but I can assume it was pretty terrible because, seriously, The Great Khali). This turned out to be a pretty decent singles match that was given a good amount of TV time thanks to the fact WWE overlooks this show and probably doesn’t regulate it at all. O’Neil was fun acting as Young’s coach, blowing a whistle and yelling “TOUCHDOWN!” after a particularly brutal move. And if you’ve seen Gabriel in action before you know he can bring the thunder and did so here. Even though this was a singles match and Gabriel has far more singles experience (and wins), I was still surprised to see him get the nod here; seems like The Prime Time Players are higher on the WWE food chain so I just sort of expect them to win against lower level talent no matter a singles or tag team match. But I’m not disappointed in who won at all. (B-)

Other Points of Interest:

  • Scott Stanford and Matt Striker handled commentary and yes Striker’s creepstache is still in full effect. Shudder.
  • The show featured two RAW Rebounds: the first showed the Vickie/AJ/Cena/Ziggler in-ring confrontation in its entirety and the second was a video package that highlighted CM Punk’s celebration of being WWE Champion for one year (including Ryback getting sent through a table once again by Ambrose/Rollins/Reigns).
  • No mention was made of Thanksgiving on this episode since Superstars mainly (if not exclusively) airs in foreign markets.
