re: Official General Superstars Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread
Finally, a good edition of Superstars!
And no surprise, really, considering that it is a three-match show and we've got Morrison, McIntyre, Tatsu, Kidd, Gabriel on the card.
Gabriel vs Mahal is a passable match. Nothing too bad about it, except Gabriel takes way too long pandering to the crowd before the 450. But it's nice to see the announcers sell the 450 like a huge deal, the unique camera angle for the finish, and that Striker highlighted that Mahal has knee-based offense.
Morrison vs McIntyre was good. Morrison had some awesome parking spots like the over the corner turnbuckles corkscrew plancha and a somersault off the ring steps. Nice to see McIntyre using the "Master of the Ring" schtick again. But it's pretty stupid Morrison fell for the under the ring trick when Morrison already fell for the trick... last year on SD to McIntyre. One problem is that McIntyre wasn't very focused in his psychology. First he seemed to work the neck, then the arm, then the leg? Hmm?
Tatsu vs Kidd was the best match. Unlike Mac after him, Tyson Kidd did a great job focusing on Tatsu's back the entire match. Good counters playing off their past history. Great final minutes and finish.
Tatsu and Morrison were over with the crowd, managing to get the crowd chanting for their name during their matches.
