Something interesting happened on Superstars this week. It’s not common to see storyline progression on Thursdays, but this week, we saw the reunion of former Unified Tag Team Champions and an Extreme Rules rematch. Throw in a Divas match and you get a better-than-usual edition of WWE Superstars. Let’s take a closer look.

Carlito (with Michael Tarver) v. Primo

The action during this short match is not worth covering as much as the unlikely reunion of Carlito and Primo is. The first-ever WWE Unified Tag Team Champions decided to rejoin forces, probably turning Primo heel in the process. Carlito’s promo may have been the best of his career and that is saying a lot. Last week, I reported that the Colons were teaming against the Hart Dynasty for the titles at WWE house shows, so now this isn’t as peculiar. What this means is that the WWE has another tag team to challenge for the championship. Excluding the Dynasty, the WWE has the Colons, the Dudebusters, (possibly) the Miz and Chris Jericho, and R-Truth and John Morrison to utilize in a tag scene that has been on a steady decline for years. It will be interesting to see the Colons work as heels. It might also make Carlito part of a meaningful program for the first time in who knows how long (in my opinion, he hasn’t had once since he debuted and won the U.S. Title from John Cena).

Chavo Guerrero v. Chris Masters

One talented wrestler who has become known for comic relief and another promising wrestler who has also become comic fodder. Can you determine the difference between Chavo and Masters? Neither can I. I was at Master’s re-debut last July and he looked promising. Now he can jiggle his pectorals. Awesome. Same goes for Chavo. I am disappointed in the way the WWE has treated him. There were some cool spots in this match (Chavo’s jumping DDT, Masters’s backbreaker/sidewalk slam combo) and one botch (the big back body drop that left Chavo landing awkwardly on his knee). Masters wins with the Masterlock. Throw Chavo a bone, sometime? Please?

Rosa Mendes v. WWE Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix

A glorified squash. Remember when Rosa debuted as Beth’s biggest fan? Yeah, I’m surprised I did, too. Rosa gets some shots in, but Phoenix takes over. I was surprised that she won via roll-up and not a finisher,  but she did it to sell knee damage so I guess that works.

JTG v. Shad Gaspard

A solid main event and rematch from Extreme Rules. These two have obvious chemistry and it shows. There is not much else to say. Shad goes over with the STO. The question is where these two go from here.
