WWE Superstars 08/23/12 Review.
Justin Gabriel against Cody Rhodes was a fun little main event match with some epic psychology. Rhodes worked the arm. Gabriel had some nice little high flying offense right out through this match. In the end, he was foiled.
Damien Sandow continued to really shine on the microphone. Yoshi Tatsu was the perfect opponent for him. Sandow had some impressive moves and hopefully will move to that Intercontinental/United States Title level before too long.
Drew McIntyre against Alex Riley just did not do it for me. McIntyre continued to get buried something fierce. The finish was out of nowhere and Riley scored a win. This bout was intriguing to show who rested where on the WWE Pecking Order.
WWE has yet another show on Saturday Mornings on the CW at 9:00 AM Eastern time. That show goes against both Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice in the fall. Therefore, that's not going on my must watch list. Then again NXT and ROH are so close to going on the boycott pile as well with Smackdown because those shows are getting to be a bit useless these days.
Matt Striker dragged Scott Stanford down as usual. His commentary really has gotten bad. They should throw Regal on Superstars with Stanford, that would have made an interesting commentary duo.
