Quick hits on WWE Superstars
• I was really impressed with Ted DiBiase Jr. in his win over Evan Bourne on Thursday's episode of WWE Superstars. He is so fundamentally sound for someone at his age (26) and experience level (three years), and he also is starting to show more personality. It’s just a matter of time before he becomes a singles star.
• Bourne takes a beating as well as anyone I’ve seen – and I mean that as a compliment. The clothesline he took from DiBiase in which he did a 360 looked awesome, and he landed hard on the back of his head when DiBiase hit Dream Street. I thought he was going to be knocked out when DiBiase swung him headfirst into the barrier. It looked devastating in real time, but on the replay you could see that Bourne got his hands up at the last second. Still, I’m sure it didn’t feel good.
• I think The Hart Dynasty has more upside than Cryme Tyme, which is why I hated seeing them do the job. At least THD has beaten them a few times during their program. I think these teams are giving Randy Orton and John Cena a run for their money as far as feuds that seem to have no end in sight.
• The more I see of Natalya, the more I think WWE is not taking full advantage of her talent. Not only is she a good worker, but she is probably the best on the mic of any of the women. I don’t see why she couldn’t get a run with the women’s title and manage THD at the same time.
• The Sheamus-Shelton Benjamin contest wasn’t much of a match, but it served a purpose. It got Sheamus over as a sadistic heel, and Benjamin as a gutsy babyface.
