- Cody Rhodes, along with his mustache and perfectly plucked eyebrows, brings us this week's PSA to not try this at home. He says that even though he is "groomed for greatness," it took years of practice and hard work to get where he is and the danger is real. He mentions his shoulder injury and concussion. I was worried at first but in the end he came off serious and sincere.
- Barrett hits a backbreaker across his knee as we return to action. I must say it is odd to hear Kane's soft, "normal" voice on commentary. Bryan comes back with a dropkick in the corner but Barrett kicks out. Barrett goes for a pump handle slam but Bryan counters with a crucifix and pins him.
Winner by pin: Daniel "The Dazzler" Bryan
Bryan jumps on a seated Kane and hugs him at ringside as he screams, "YES!" Bryan seeks approval like a child as he stands on the announce table as Kane validates him and tells him he did good.
- We see the GM graphic with all the Superstars and Josh says that he just got breaking news that a decision has been made and the GM for the show will be announced next week.
- The "Battle for Boss" promo runs and we are encouraged to tune in next week to see who will "forever rule the Saturday Morning Slam Universe."
Final Thoughts: WWE really has a chance to carve out an interesting niche for this show and they started out with decent "kid" segments early-on but they have gotten lazy in the past months. I can remember being a kid watching the original Superstars. It was the flagship show for the most part if you don't count Prime Time Wrestling. My point is that I try to put myself in a kid's shoes when I watch this show and I see it's potential given the right format. It needs to be more exclusive and dymanic, maybe even interactive like Livewire used to be. I like the idea of a GM. It's a step in the right direction but we will have to see where it goes.
