The Superstars video rolls, your usual pyro goes off and we are underway for the 5/12 Edition of Superstars! Jack Korpela opens us up and Trent Barreta Makes his way out. Matt and Jack welcome us to the show.

Tyson Kidd makes his way out with Michael Hayes?! Matt Striker asks the same question we are all thinking, why is Michael Hayes with Tyson Kidd? Hayes grabs the mic. He says his name is Michael PS Hayes and he is back in this business (presumably managing) needs him back and trust him, business is good. Business is real good, you know what’s ironic? The greatest planes in the world can’t fly without pilots, the greatest teams in the world cannot win without the a coach and a team can’t win without players. He says he has a real good player in Tyson Kidd. He says people like Trent Barreta lack the killer instinct, they are too friendly, too kind and unlike people like Tyson Kidd who don’t mind stepping on toes to get too the top. Because trust him on this, in life you either step on somebody or you be stepped on. Get ready because Tyson Kidd is about to get stepping. Hayes gets out of the ring and the ref signals for the bell.

Thoughts

Sorry about missing out on some of it guys, my stream paused at them sections and wouldn’t let me watch any further until a certain point, I tried several times but it just wouldn’t play. Thankfully I only missed a few minutes. Anyway I thought this Superstars was a little worse then the last few weeks.

The Kidd/Barreta match again was fantastic, both men are showing they have the in ring skills to be elevated to the mid card permanently Well maybe not Barreta, his corkscrew was a little botched and didn’t fully impact with Kidd. I really like the addition of Micheal Hayes with Kidd. Hopefully they re-introduce managers so people who haven’t got the best mic skills like your Kidd’s and Barreta’s and maybe even Daniel Bryan get more of a push.

WWWYKI bro! Ryder manages to get over Vladimir! What has happened to this man, he goes from being a human wrecking ball to toying around with Santino and being beaten on Superstars. Even though there may have been a distraction but personally I think this man has fallen a bit. Now don’t get me wrong, I like how they are using him now, it just shows how WWE can push someone so far and then let them fall all the way down. With this distraction by Curt Hawkins I can see them reforming there tag team which I really liked. Hopefully they challenge and win the gold!

The same goes for McIntyre, what has happened with this man, he has gone from the chosen one too being beaten by Chris Masters. I hope they are just repackaging him, or really trying too push Masters. Either Way I wouldn’t mind.

So that about wraps it up for this week. I’d give the show about a C. Maybe C+. Match of the night was definitely Barreta-Kidd.

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you all next week!
