1. At the start of the show when Team Raw and Team Smackdown announced their mixed brand matches it was fresh and exciting to see people who wouldnâ€™t usually have matches put together. Perhaps it is time to end the brand split as just think of all the new feuds and excellent match-ups we could potentially have: Sheamus/Big Show, Big Zeke/Rey, Morrison/Alberto â€“ the list could go on and on.
Actually, hang-on, wasnâ€™t that what Superstars was originally supposed to be all about? â€“ exciting mixed brand matches? – rather than glorified jobbers on the same brand battling each other every single week.
2. The opening 3 man tag was excellent and completely different to what we have come to expect nowadays. Usually 3 vs. 3 matches are just a full out-blown stomp fest but this match-up was full of heart-stopping and spots and showed off each competitorâ€™s abilities. Plus, the Big Show/Rey finisher was totally reminiscent of Andre/Snuka which I loved â€“ they should team up more often.
3. RAW havenâ€™t actually had the upper hand on both RAW and Smackdown this week so this obviously means that RAW will win at Bragging Rights â€“ oh how I love it when WWE keeps their fans guessing.
4. I wish The Miz would stop going on about how Smackdown is the â€˜B Showâ€™ â€“ erm which WWE show is it that has endless goofy segments, more often than not terrible matches and â€˜celebrityâ€™ guest hosts nobody gives a fudge about?? â€“ yes itâ€™s RAW. Smackdown has the best talent who they use to their advantage to produce great matches rather than having them dance with Divas.
Perhaps if Smackdown did go live on a Friday night it could potentially and letâ€™s face it easily become the â€˜A Showâ€™ which it so rightly deserves to be.
5. If there is one thing I hate on Smackdown more than stupid Hornswoggle segments itâ€™s the RAW rebound â€“ it takes away five minutes of my life that could be spent on doing more interesting things like reading an academic journal on the digital divide (and I hate being made to read academic journals by my lecturers.)
The funny thing is RAW doesnâ€™t tell the viewers anything about Smackdown even if something major does go down. If you only watched RAW there would be a possibility that you wouldnâ€™t even know that Smackdown existed.
6.Â I thought we had seen the end of the Hornswoggle/Chavo feud? Obviously not when we seen the final ever cruiserweight champion attack the Swaggerâ€™s feathery mascot *sigh* – Hey, Smackdown can you please stop with all the nonsense asap – you’re better then that. Oh and was that a Hornswoggle chant I reluctantly heard the crowd shout? â€“ ergh.
7. John Morrison needs a rejuvenation asap â€“ a completely new moveset, his finisher needs to go â€“ what happened to the brilliant and fresh one he used a few weeks back? â€“ plus a makeover wouldnâ€™t go amiss so he could get rid of those unfortunate bedazzled pants and beard, oh and a personality transplant. We all know he definitely has the potential to go far but with the way he is right now itâ€™s not going to happen anytime soon.
8. What did CM Punk say when Edge tired to hit on him? â€“ Iâ€™m straight Edge *ba dum tsshh* – if anybody else has a really lame wrestling joke please leave a comment.
9. Â I fast forwarded through the Kane/Orton match as I had a presumption that it would be horribly slow and long â€“ was I right? Iâ€™ll never know as I donâ€™t plan to go back and rewatch it anytime soon.
I did catch the ending though. Seriously that was a barrelful of laughs â€“ Kane must not feel embarrassment at all, because that was mega cringeworthy. I once had to give birth in a play before in front of only 300 people and I hated doing it so god knows what Kane felt like screaming to high heavens whilst getting pulled underneath the ring.
10. Â Best Match: 3 vs. 3 tag team match.
Worst Match: Jack Swagger/Santino.
Best Segment: Probably the whole McCool dressed up as Bret Hart segment because it was so bad it was good. She does make a good man though â€“ must be down to the incredibly deep voice.
