Santino looks for revenge on Jack Swagger, Christian locks up with Zack Ryder in ECW’s final Superstars match, and JTG is in singles action against Dolph Ziggler in tonight’s main event
Santino Marella vs. Jack Swagger
Santino has a message for Jack Swagger. He says Swagger jumped him from behind and intentionally tried to take him out of action. That’s a makin him a so mad. He’s going to teach Swagger a lesson so good he’ll call him professioray. Swagger grabs a side headlock at the outset, and hits the ropes delivering a shoulderblock. Swagger does some pushups, and Santino screams at him “don’t do that again!” Swagger takes Santino over with a side headlock, but Santino is able to reverse into one of his own. Santino hits the ropes and delivers a shoulderblock and dropkick sending Swagger to the floor allowing Santino to do some pushups of his own. Swagger comes back in and immediately regains control with a right hand. Swagger hits a belly to belly suplex, and whips Santino into the corner. Swagger delivers a Vader Bomb for two, and hammers Santino down in the corner. Swagger drives Santino into the top buckle, but that only serves to rile up Santino who starts to Marella Up. Santino delivers a series of right hands, and hits a hiptoss. Santino delivers a flying headbutt for two, and calls for the cobra which of course misses. Swagger delivers a clothesline, and finishes with the gutwrench powerbomb at 4:39. Pretty standard Santino match post face turn, and a strong showing for Swagger who needs a little momentum.
Winner: Jack Swagger (Pinfall-Gutwrench Powerbomb **)
Zack Ryder (w. Rosa Mendez) vs. Christian
Josh Mathews tells us this is indeed the final ECW match ever on Superstars. Zack pushes Christian into the corner off the lockup, but after a shove gets a smack in the face. Christian schoolboys Ryder for two, and grabs a side headlock. Ryder counters out of that with a back suplex picking up a two count, but then gets hit with a flapjack from Christian off the ropes. Christian delivers a clothesline sending Ryder to the apron, and a dropkick sends him all the way to the floor. Christian threatens a crossbody from the second rope, but Zack bails for cover down the aisle. Christian goes out after him, and brings back ramming him into the apron. Ryder catches Christian though and DDT’s him on the apron which sends us to break. We return with Zack still in control taking down Christian with a back heel trip for two, and locking in a chinlock. Ryder delivers a standing legdrop for two, but gets caught coming in to the corner with a back elbow. Christian goes for a sunset flip off the second rope, but Ryder rolls through and turns it into a slingshot under the bottom rope for two. Ryder goes to the second rope, but his dive meets the feet of Christian. Christian hits the ropes delivering a forearm, and then stands on the back of the neck of Ryder who’s throat sits across the second rope. Christian hits a missile dropkick for two, but Ryder comes back with a kick. Ryder goes for the Ruff-Ryder leg lariat, but Christian counters into a powerbomb for two. Ryder rolls the apron, and they fight over a suplex which Christian turns into a backdrop bringing Ryder back inside. Christian goes to the top rope for a crossbody which misses, and Ryder connects with the leg lariat for two. Christian comes back to go for the killswitch, but that is countered into a rollup from Ryder for two. Christian comes back with the bicycle kick in the corner, and hits a back elbow off the top rope. A second killswitch attempt this time connects and picks up the fall at 10:00. Fantastic match that really makes me hope that Ryder continues to get a chance to shine in the post ECW era. Christian should be fine, but I could see big things for Ryder if given the opportunity. Christian meanwhile continues to be arguably the most consistently good performer in the entire company.
Winner: Christian (Pinfall-Killswitch ***1/2)
Dolph Ziggler vs. JTG
Ziggler bails to the corner avoiding a lockup at the outset, and comes back with a body slam. JTG answers with a slam of his own, and the exchange ends in a standoff. Ziggler again bails to the ropes, and comes back inside where JTG hits a back elbow for two. Ziggler suckers JTG in with an offer of a test of strength, and gets a cheap shot kick in. Ziggler connects with a back elbow, but JTG answers with a flapjack. JTG hits a blockbuster off the ropes sending Ziggler to the floor as we head to break. We return with Ziggler in control of the match with a rear chinlock. JTG fights to his feet only to get taken back down by Ziggler for a one count. Ziggler delivers an elbow drop for a one count, and locks in reverse chinlock. JTG elbows free of that, but Ziggler comes right back with a Rocker Dropper for two. Ziggler hits a snap mare, and follows up with a Mr. Perfect style neck snap for two. Ziggler goes back to the chinlock, and then goes for a Stinger Splash which comes up empty. JTG comes back with what Stryker calls The Box Cutter, and that leads to Ziggler and JTG trading blows. JTG gets the better of it and delivers a shoulderblock and dropkick. JTG hits a mugshot out of the corner for two, but an attempted back suplex is countered by Ziggler into a rollup for two. JTG hits a leg lariat off the second rope a two count when Ziggler gets a foot on the bottom rope. JTG charges into the corner, but misses and that allows Ziggler to hit the Zig Zag to win at 13:04. This match was really slow and just didn’t seem to click for me. It wasn’t terrible, but just kind of underwhelming.
Winner: Dolph Ziggler (Pinfall-Zig Zag **)
