Now, your full WWE Superstars Review for May 31st 2012.
Beth Phoenix defeated Alicia Fox
The thing about the Divas on Superstars is that they get a bit more time to show what they can do. Whether or not that is a good thing, depends on if you are a fan of the WWE Divas. Battle between two former WWE Divas Champions, with Beth Phoenix wanting another title shot at Layla and being unhinged slightly because of it. Alicia Fox gives it a fight, but we know where this goes in the end, the Glam Slam gets the pin and Beth Phoenix picks up the win to open up WWE Superstars.
Tensai defeated Alex Riley.
Return match from Tensai's debut where he obliterated Alex Riley back on WWE RAW. Riley fares a little bit better, given that this is Superstars, he gets some offense. The inevitable happens, with Tensai catching Riley and bringing him down with a tree slam, before he squashes Riley with a huge senton. Tensai picks up a win on WWE Superstars against Alex Riley.
Jinder Mahal defeated Yoshi Tatsu
This is the third time we have seen this particular match on WWE Superstars. Yoshi is an awesome fiery babyface, the perfect opponent for someone like Mahal. The end is inevitable, with Mahal slapping on his camel clutch after a knee. Another win by Jinder Mahal over Yoshi Tatsu, and I find myself feeling great apathy.
Christian will take on Drew McIntyre in the main event of WWE Superstars.
The Big Show's rampage from this past Monday is featured on the RAW Rebound.
Christian defeated Drew McIntyre
An amazing main event match to conclude this week's action. It is almost like Drew McIntyre was fighting to prevent his inevitable future endeavors with this career best performance. Match really rocked, with lots of nearfalls. McIntyre hits a sick snap reverse power bomb out of the corner. Christian hits his WWE 12 signature and a leaping DDT for a nearfall. Spear is countered into a kind of F-5 but McIntyre can't put Christian down. Future Shock is blocked but Christian is reversed into the corner. McIntyre charges in but Christian moves and McIntyre flies shoulder first into the post, with an audible smack. Killswitch engaged and Christian finishes things up with the Frog Splash.
I loved this main event, it was one of the best matches on Superstars since McIntyre and Chris Masters last May. Christian has the win as WWE Superstars concludes with an epic main event.
