- Team Rhodes Scholars make their entrance to a sea of jeers. I really like the facepaint on the Uso's. It's a subtle addition but it adds so much to their presentation. The Shield, The Wyatts, Punk, Bryan, etc...it is slowly becomming fun to be a wrestling fan again.
Team Rhodes Scholars vs. The Usos
The two teams mix it up rather evenly with back and forth. Usos take a small lead as we take a quick break. We return to action as Josh quizzes Miz on how to tell Jey and Jimmy Uso apart. The Usos make quick tags and keep control of Cody Rhodes. Miz brings up Josh's Tough Enough days after he suggests match between Josh and Ricardo. Josh quips back about The Real World. I am guilty of having watched both seasons of said shows. The Miz was actually doing "The Miz" character on that show before he ever became a wrestler. It was basically a play on "The Rock."
Back to ring action as the announcers also come off their tangent. Cody comes back as he sidesteps Jey in the corner and drops him with a neckbreaker for 2. Cody tags Damien Sandow who hits aggressive strikes on Uso in the corner. Sandow hits the Elbow of Disdain on Uso for 2. More quick tags from The Rhodes Scholars. Jimmy makes the hot-tag in and he goes off on Cody. He hits the Running Stinkface and makes the cover but Sandow makes the save. Jey takes Sandow's head off with a superkick. Cody hits the Disaster Kick to Jimmy but Jey breaks the count. Jimmy hits Cody with a superkick just as Jey slaps his brother in the back to tag in. Jey flies off the top and hits the Superfly Splash for the victory.
Winners by pin: The Usos
- We go to a Ryback highlight package.
- Justin Gabriel makes his entrance. Curt Hawkins makes his entrance with a backward hat and it looks like he is sporting a new short haircut. I had all but forgotten about this chap.
Justin Gabriel vs. Curt Hawkins
They lock up and Gabriel hits a nice deep armdrag. Hawkins hits a vicious clothesline and I don't even think the ref counted to 1 before Gabriel popped his shoulder up. Hawkins goes to work with a rear headlock. Miz says Gabriel goes night-surfing. Gabriel comes back with a flurry of kicks. Gabriel hits a sit-down slam for 2. Hawkins and Gabriel trade a couple of hard shots to the face. Hawkins gets 2. Gabriel creates some space in the corner, taking Hawkins down with a double boot to the chest. Gabriel pulls himself up top Shawn Michaels-style and comes off with the 450 for the win.
Winner by pin: Justin Gabriel
- Josh signs off as he reminds us to tune in to SmackDown on Friday.
