It was only a matter of time before Tyler Reks returned to dominate on “WWE Superstars.” Absent from the ring for the past few weeks, the “Dreadlocked Demolition Man” came back tonight to make an example of the young Trent Barreta. Although nimble and talented, the highflyer is outweighed by Reks by more than 50 pounds. This size differential had a big impact on the bout as Reks used his brute strength to toss Barreta around the ring before finishing him off with the “Burning Hammer.”
It’s been said that misery loves company. No wonder Zack Ryder & Primo work together so well. After defeating David Hart Smith & Darren Young on last Thursday’s “WWE Superstars,” the egotistical Raw competitors found success again this week with a win over Smith & Yoshi Tatsu. Of course, Long Island Iced Z & the Puerto Rican Superstar didn’t gain their victory on fair ground. Using every underhanded maneuver in the book, the dastardly duo stole the match from their talented opponents and got another ego boost they didn’t deserve.
The truth hurts. That’s certainly what Tyson Kidd is thinking right now. The arrogant Superstar may believe he is the most talented competitor in the locker-room, but the truth is he lost for the second week in a row tonight. After falling to Yoshi Tatsu last Thursday, the Hart Dungeon-trained grappler locked up with R-Truth tonight and looked very impressive. But just like last week, Kidd’s ego got the better of him and he let his guard down, allowing the rapping Superstar to pull out the victory. The former WWE Tag Team Champion needs to get his head back in the game if he wants to make a serious impact.
