WWE Saturday Morning Slam returned as the sun rose yesterday (Dec. 1) to greet us with a tag team main event. International Airstrike pitted their speed against the power of The Usos in the main event of the show.
We also saw Ted DiBiase take on the "funny guy" of 3MB, Jinder Mahal.
Let's go straight into the reactions from yesterday's show!
- The main event featured International Airstrike and The Usos squaring off in a decent match. Nothing to write home about really, but it is good to see the WWE giving fresh faces to the kids watching this show. The Usos put away International Airstrike after a huge Samoan drop off of a press in the air. Not too shabby, but I can't say that you should go out of your way to watch it.
- In the opener, Jinder Mahal took on Ted DiBiase. Drew McIntyre and Heath Slater joined him at ringside and they managed to lend a helping hand to their fellow band member, allowing him to take home the victory. Again, another solid effort here, but nothing spectacular.
- This week's "Video Vault" focused on British talent in the WWE. First, the lovely Layla did a little segment comparing American and British words, such as an elevator being called a lift in the UK. The "Video Vault" featured British Bulldog, William Regal, Paul Burchill, and Wade Barrett. I am all for these history segments, but I could do without ever hearing about Paul Burchill ever again. Katie Lea, on the other hand...
- John Cena ended the show with a special announcement that he would make his in-ring debut on next week's show. He issued an open challenge and Heath Slater accepted. Let's all take a guess as to how this one will go.
This week's show did nothing for me, honestly. Apart from seeing a solid history segment and Layla, I can't say I was entertained by the show like I usually am.
However, nothing was done wrong here, so it still passes with a "C."
How did you Cagesiders enjoy this week's offering?
