Last night’s WWE Superstars wasn’t too bad. In between three squashes, we had a solid main event between two mid-carders and the reemergence of two developmental talents, including a former WWE Tag Team Champion. Let’s take a look at WWE Superstars.

Maryse and Jillian Hall v. The Bella Twins

The Bellas need to stick with the guest host accompaniment position because their in-ring abilities are just awful. These two were just meat to the wolves, meaning Jillian and Maryse. After that video package with Maryse beating up her judo trainer, an angle where she feels inferior for the first time might be entertaining. In the mean time, Maryse wins with the French Kiss DDT. By the way, her trademark pin is pretty damn sexy.

Vlad Kozlov v. “local competitor”

Squash, plain and simple. Kozlov is floating and the only thing that seems to be on his radar is a comedy program with Santino Marella and possibly William Regal. At least he got some exposure. No exposure is bad exposure, I guess.

Curt Hawkins and Vance Archer v. “local competitors”

This was an intriguing match on paper (Well, one side of the match at least). Archer has not been seen since ECW folded a few months ago and Hawkins has been in FCW (per his request) and off of WWE television for almost a year. As Matt Striker mentioned on commentary, I was eager to see how Hawkins has matured since the La Familia stable disbanded last year. Both he and Archer looked solid and worked a fluid five-minute tag match. After the match, Hawkins said that he and Archer received 30 day contracts and had to make an “impact.” Archer is a great worker and Hawkins proved himself in FCW, even holding the FCW Tag Team Championship as part of the Dudebusters with Caylen Croft and Trent Baretta. Could a Hawkins v. Ryder feud be in the works? Probably not. But wouldn’t that be funny? A guy can dream.

Dolph Ziggler v. Chris Masters

I was surprised by how much time this match was given. Ziggler and Masters put on a 15 minute match that actually engaged the crowd. I am sour about the way Masters has been booked since returning to the WWE last summer, but if matches like this one are any indication, the Masterpiece can work with the best of them. The story of the match was the Sleeper v. The Master Lock (P.S. Nice dig on “cute names” for moves by Striker). Each man teased his respective move several times during the match, which built up to who would be able to lock it in first. With all that said, Ziggler wins with the Zig Zag, something unexpected, but as the motto for Superstars says, “Expect Everything.” Ziggler is on a roll, much like he was last summer in his program with Rey Mysterio over the IC Title. As long as Hornswoggle doesn’t resurrect from “Leprechaun Heaven,” Ziggler will continue to heat up and maybe will earn himself a championship by the end of 2010.
