Top 4 of Superstars 12/6/12
I picked an awful week to come back for these blogs.
4. Raw Recaps
AHHAHAHAHA, I’m kidding. Screw these recaps taking up 30 of the 43 minutes of the show. But David Otunga vs. Brodus Clay was hardly a match so it doesn’t deserve to be on this list because the focus went to…
Let’s randomly throw Khali, Natalya, and Hornswoggle together and try to pass it off as a brilliant storyline. Rosa coming out and just beating down Hornswoggle was the best part of this, but I do not understand why Khali is still being used. It was funny, but it was funny in a sick way.
2. Zack Ryder vs. Tensai
I jumped off the Ryder bandwagon way after everyone else did, but not because he was awful as a wrestler. He just got stale very quickly. Tensai is good at being brutal but that doesn’t make a good match with someone who fights like Ryder. Yet. YET! These two pulled it off. At 6:24 this wasn’t the squash match I anticipated it was going to be. The two actually had some great back and forth and besides one part where Ryder went for the Broski Boot and didn’t actually go for it because he knew he was going to get blocked, I would say this moved smoothly. Few rest holds and great action. Color me surprised.
1. Scott Stanford and Matt Striker
Yes, this spot is usually reserved for Scott alone, but this week I have to give the commentary duo props together. When Striker and Stanford first seemed to be the go-to team for commentary I was hesitant. This was when Sandow was making regular appearances and Striker focused more on intellect and being a superior to Stanford than an equal. I heard enough of Cole and Lawler constantly bickering, I didn’t need it on every show. Now Striker and Stanford play off of one another, and while they have their jabs at one another the flow is a nice measure that makes anything entertaining. And on episodes like this… it’s desperately needed.
