22 September 2011
Match One: Jinder Mahal, The Great Khali & Tyson Kidd vs The Usos & Yoshi Tatsu
In this odd 6 man tag team match it was the heel team that started off the match the best, making the best use of Khali's size against Tatsu which allowed Mahal & Kidd to quickly tag themselves in and out in order to isolate and weaken Tatsu down. Kidd started to get to work on Tatsu's legs which would make the Sharpshooter the obvious finish but Mahal was more concerned with working on the neck for the Camel Clutch. This led to some bickering which allowed Tatsu to get the tag into Jey Uso who cmae in and cleaned house straight away along with his brother. Khali was knocked off of the apron by the Samoan brothers and Kidd thought this match was a lost cause because of the differences between himself and Mahal so he thought best to leave. This left Mahal high and dry right into a Samoan Drop from Jimmy and then a Superfly Splash from Jey which got The Usos and Yoshi a big victory to open Supertars.
Winners: The Usos & Yoshi Tatsu
Match Two: Alex Riley vs JTG
In this rather one sided match, JTG was able to get some offence in right at the start but ahead of his United States Championship #1 Contender's match with Drew McIntyre on Raw, Riley was not going to be denied. After countering an attempted Cross Body from J', Riley was able to lift him up and plant him with the TKO for the victory.
Winner: Alex Riley
Match Three: Curt Hawkins & Primo vs Local Competitors
In the first match with these two together as a team, Primo and Hawkins showed some pretty good chemistry with a series of double team manoeuvres. At the end of the match Primo set up to hit the Backstabber on one of the jobbers but at the same time Hawkins came in with a huge lariat which left the poor amateur down for the count.
Winners: Curt Hawkins & Primo
Main Event: Heath Slater vs Sin Cara
Before the match Slater entered dressed in his usual rockstar/Guitar Hero gear and proclaimed himself to be the 'One Man Rock Band' and Sin Cara better forget about Night of Champions because tonight he has a real test. Once the match got started, Slater was able to take advantage when Cara tried to do a Moonsault and Slater pushed Sin Cara off of the top rope and into the barricade. This allowed Slater to get a period of control over the Mexican but his showing off cost him as Sin Cara started to battle back with kicks all over Slater's body before eventually flipping Heath off of the top rope with the C4.
Winner: Sin Cara
