Here's the latest episode of World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) weekly Thursday show, Superstars, from May 24, 2012, featuring a main event of Zack Ryder going over on Heath Slater in a decent match for an Internet only show.
Really, Ryder should want to be on Superstars, as he's a big fish in a little pond when it comes to the smaller WWE shows. Once he gets on Monday Night Raw or Friday Night Smackdown, he quickly becomes nothing more than a jobber with no real creative direction.
At least here he's a star ... so to speak.
The same could be said, although to a much lesser extent, for R-Truth and Kofi Kingston, the WWE tag team champions who have struggled to find footing on the main shows. But again, they're style is perfectly suited for a show like Superstars that is heavy on in-ring action and light on angles. They were solid in going over clean on JTG and Michael McGillicutty here.
And if you want a glimpse at the future of the business, take a look at Antonio Cesaro doing his thing in the opening bout against Tyson Kidd. Cesaro is, to put it simply, a pleasure to watch and with his combination of charisma and in-ring abilities, he should be working with the big dogs sooner rather than later.
Enjoy the show, Cagesiders!
