Pulse Wrestling Recap: WWE Superstars, 04.14.2011 – Chris Masters, Zack Ryder, The Great Khali

Welcome to another recap of Superstars, which can now be found on WWE.com. I’m not exactly sure when they posted it seeing as how I just made this discover about 10 mins ago. Either way, I’m pumped and ready to go!

Chris Masters vs. Curt Hawkins
The two men lock-up in the middle of the ring and as you would expect, Masters powers Hawkins to his back and into the corner. The ref breaks them up and Hawkins takes that opportunity to take control of the match. Hawkins goes for a suplex but Masters blocks it and lands one of his own. Masters go for a pin but only gets two. Masters gets pushed into the turnbuckle and the ref breaks them up and Hawkins takes over from that point. Hawkins has Chris in a headlock but that doesn’t last long as Masters gets to his feet but it was for nothing as he is kicked in the stomach and Hawkins lands a suplex for a two count. Hawkins puts in another headlock and once again, Masters is on his feet and lands a few chops. However, Hawkins trips up Masters as we take a break.
And we’re back from a 2 second break (gotta love the internet), and Hawkins has Masters in yet another headlock and as always, Masters manages to get to his feet and breaks the hold. Hawkins tries to keep his momentum going but Masters shifts that momentum into a Samoan Drop. Both men take a long time to get up as Masters crawls over to the turnbuckle. Hawkins runs full-speed but Masters gets out of the way as Curt meets the turnbuckle face-first and is then met by a series of chops and Striker loves the sound of flesh-on-flesh action as Masters hits an impressive spinebuster. Masters opts out of going for the pin but insteads climbs up on the 2nd rope and hits a flying shoulder but only gets a 2 count. Masters goes for the Masterlock but Hawkins manages to escape and nails a clothesline but gets a pin for 2. Hawkins whips Masters into the corner and then runs himself but gets flung over the top rope but lands on the apron. Masters reaches over the ropes and gets the Masterlock in. Masters lifts Hawkins back into the ring and we get some ragdoll action, this one is over.
Winner: Chris Masters

We relive Edge’s retirement announcement from this past Monday night in its entirety.

Natalya & Gail Kim vs. Maryse & Melina
We start off with Maryse and Natalya and Maryse right off the bat hits a slap and a shove and the lady bear has been poked because Natalya is not happy. The ref breaks them up seeing as how Maryse coward to the ropes. Maryse is preoccupied with the ref as Natalya runs out of the ring and drops Maryse from behind. Maryse scrambles into her corner to tag Ms. Non-Wrestlemania herself, Melina, who doesn’t have time to get in the ring because Natalya sprinted over and flipped Melina into the ring and goes for the Sharpshooter but Melina gets a slap in. Natayla grabs a handful of Melina’s hair and lands a slam and tags in Gail Kim. Natalya throws Kim onto Melina and goes for a pin but only gets two. Gail Kim takes over and basically flies around the ring and its shot after shot that lands on Melina, Maryse tries to get involved but gets kicked away but Melina manages to flip Kim onto the ropes and Melina starts screaming and taking control but while in the corner, Kim lands a kick to Melina’s head. Kim tries to crawl back to her corner but Melina drags her away. Kim gets whipped into the wrong corner and Melina tags in Maryse, who continues the momentum in her team’s favor, pulls a couple dirty moves in classic heel fashion before tagging Melina right back in. Melina locks in some weird submission move that shows off that she’s flexible…hooray her (it really looks it would hurt her more than her opponent…just sayin). Melina can’t keep the hold and awkward rolls over for what apparently is a pin but only gets a two count as Melina crawls back to her corner and tags Maryse. Maryse immediately runs over and takes a shot at Natalya and drags Kim back to the middle but Kim counters and tags in Natalya, who hits a spinning bodyslam and goes for the pin but Melina breaks it up at 2. Melina gets attacked by Gail Kim and those two land out of the ring. Maryse goes for her DDT but Natalya isn’t having it and lets Maryse land on the mat and locks in the Sharpshooter and Maryse taps.
Winners: Natalya and Gail Kim

We get a look at the announcers say is a new movie with Randy Orton but what we really get is the Awesome Kong spot from Monday Night and another babydoll loses its head.

We now rewatch another package from Monday night, this time its everybody talking about Taker vs. HHH.

Zack Ryder vs. The Great Khali
Before Khali comes out, Zack Ryder gets a mic and hypes his youtube show and t-shirts and threatens to fist-pump Khali’s face…ya that happened.

Ryder backs into the ropes a couple times before lands a kick to Khali’s legs and then gets thrown down. Ryder tries to say that he doesn’t want to fight any more and gets a cheap shot in and scrambles out of the ring. Ryder gets back on the apron and Khali gets his hands on him and throws Zack in the ring. Khali slaps Ryders chest twice and goes for a third but Ryder sweeps the legs and Khali is down. Ryder gets a headlock in but Khali gets up and slams Ryder back down and then lands a chop to the head and then hits the Punjabi Plunge and gets the pin. That was really short and awkward.
Winner: The Great Khali
