If you're interested in WWE's C, D and E programs, but barely feel like you have enough time to watch Raw and SmackDown every week, this article may be just what you're looking for.
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 the vainest of superstars from WWE's past and present and a pop quiz about Iron Man matches on the Saturday Morning Slam slide. If you're a true wrestling fan, it should be cake.
On NXT, Mike McGillicutty continues to climb the NXT ranks with a victory over fellow third-generation superstar Bo Dallas. Vader's son Jake Carter gets a clean win over Leo Kruger.
Ryback made a special appearance to destroy a pair of local wrestlers whose names weren't even announced. This was followed by the main event, Kassius Ohno vs. Richie Steamboat.
Steamboat got a clean win after Ohno dominated most of the match, but Ohno destroyed Steamboat post-match, so the feud is far from over.
On Superstars, Heath Slater was accompanied to the ring by Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre before getting a clean win over Yoshi Tatsu. Post-match, Tatsu suffered the finishers of Mahal and McIntyre. Heel stable established.
Ted DiBiase got a clean win over Mike McGillicutty, and Layla defeated Eve in a nontitle Divas match that left plenty to be desired.
The main event was a rematch from Raw that saw Dolph Ziggler get another clean win over Kofi Kingston in a match that was solid, but definitely not as good as their match on Raw.
On Saturday Morning Slam, the only match saw Santino Marella get a victory over Heath Slater. They also did some segments reviewing the most vain superstars, superstars with athletic gimmicks and bits with Cody Rhodes and John Cena.
