WWE: What You Missed on Superstars, NXT & SM Slam Last Week

With the recent expansion to a three-hour Raw and a new Saturday morning program for children, the current WWE television lineup includes seven and a half hours of programming each week, if you count the newly re-branded NXT.

For some people, that's just too much wrestling to take in every week.

If you don’t have time to watch shows like NXT, Superstars and Saturday Morning Slam, then you probably don’t have time to read lengthy reviews of each show, complete with commentary, predictions and cynical sidetracks. My Notes version of all three shows is below.

If it piques your interest enough to read on, the slideshow breaks down the shows individually, segment by segment, complete with my questions and predictions. 

BONUS: There's a quick trivia challenge regarding former Intercontinental Champions on the Saturday Morning Slam slide. If you're a true wrestling fan, it should be cake. 


Notes:

On NXT, Trent Barreta returned from injury to defeat Johnny Curtis, and Paige got a clean win over Alicia Fox in a Divas match that was at least as good as any match I’ve recently seen on Raw or SmackDown.

Conor O’Brien (of the Ascension) defeated Jimmy Uso to further the feud between their respective tag teams, and Kassius Ohno makes Oliver Ray tap out twice in the first ever “NXT Sparring Session.”

The main event saw NXT Champion Seth Rollins get a clean win over Rick Victor in a non-title match.

On Superstars, in one of his first matches since returning from injury, Ted DiBiase got a clean win over JTG and Jinder Mahal fell to Drew McIntyre, who received a favorable reception from the audience and is being booked as a face.

David Otunga got a victory over Tyson Kidd, and in the main event, the Prime Time Players defeated the Usos, who received a better pop from the live audience than I would have predicted.

On Saturday Morning Slam, the only match saw Zack Ryder defeat William Regal, and the theme of the episode was “Championships,” with a special emphasis on the Intercontinental Championship and a few segments with the Miz.

Now, if you care to read more about any of these happenings, please enjoy the slideshow.
