Video: WWE Superstars from Jan. 19, 2012, featuring Alex Riley vs. Jinder Mahal

Here's the latest episode of WWE Superstars from Thurs., Jan. 19, 2012. The show kicks off with a solid five-minute match between Natalya and Tamina, who they've essentially repackaged as the female version of her father, "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka.

Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins were beaten by the goofiest tag pairing of all time, Santino Marella and Mason Ryan. By the way, how happy are we all that Ryan is no longer a fixture on Raw?

The main event of the show is a short match between Alex Riley and Jinder Mahal, which Mahal wins with the Camel Clutch. I'm still convinced he can be a damn good heel if he's booked right. Having him win matches in this manner is one way to start pushing him there.
