1 - U.S. champion SANTINO MARELLA vs. JINDER MAHAL - non-title match

Santino starts by threatening Mahal with the Cobra, then a display of the Marella Martial Arts. Mahal tries to be serious, but Marella lands a duo of arm drags to keep Mahal down. Marella continues to fend off Mahal's offense. Marella rubs his success in Mahal's face and Mahal uses the self-distraction to get the upper hand. Marfella gets his feet up on a jumping stomp, and takes control with his typical offense. The sock puppet comes out and Mahal walks into the Cobra for the loss.

WINNER: Santino Marella in 4:45. Both Marella and Mahal have an issue where their matches always follow the exact same script of sequences. While the execution is just fine, it is tough to be excited about the matches.

2 - ALEX RILEY vs. CODY RHODES

Rhodes's arm is heavily taped up post-MITB. The larger Riley gets the best of Rhodes in a lock-up. There is some back-and-forth and Riley keeps Rhodes on the mat by controlling the arm and wrist. Rhodes uses a ref break to get an edge.

[ c - "Falls Count Anywhere" DVD ad ]

Rhodes is still dominating out of the break. Riley finally builds a comeback. Spinebuster gets a nearfall for Riley. Riley comes off the top rope, but eats a dropkick, and the ref starts a double ten count. Rhodes recovers first but Riley with a schoolboy when Rhodes tries to take advantage. Riley wants the Final Score but Rhodes counters into Cross Rhodes and picks up the win.

WINNER: Cody Rhodes in 9:45. The booking makes no sense. First, Rhodes should be on Raw or Smackdown, not Superstars. Secondly, he went way too long against Riley, who has not been presented as a serious threat for the last year. Good match, but the booking was odd.

3 - THE USOS vs. JOHNNY CURTIS & DERRICK BATEMAN - Tag Team match

Curtis mocks the Usos's dance and eats a slap in return. Bateman immediately comes in and gets stuck in the corner. One poor fan keeps screaming for Bateman. Bateman tags in Curtis, but Curtis accidentally elbow drops Bateman's arm instead of Jimmy's and Bateman writhes in pain. Curtis and Bateman work together behind the ref's back to regain control. Unique tag team move at Bateman hits a top rope elbow drop followed by a top rope leg drop from Curtis, but Jey moves out of the way of the leg drop. Jimmy cleans house on Curtis with his usual moves set. Curtis walks into a Samoan Drop and Jimmy lands the Superfly Splash for the win.

WINNERS: Usos in 4:30. Good match, but Derrick Bateman doesn't work as a heel. In fact, if they just dust off the NXT Redemption scripts from the last six months and use it on the new three-hour Raws, they'll have a winner. Bateman and Curtis play against each other well, not with each other.

4 - SIN CARA vs. DREW MCINTYRE

McIntyre with early offense, but Sin Cara's speed takes him out of the ring. McIntyre catches Sin Cara's haracarana and throws him into the barrier, and a bunch of folks cheer for it. McIntyre tortures Sin Cara in the ring a big. Sin Cara has to jump to elbow McIntyre in the face like he's Lil' Mac. Striker says that he is finally on Twitter (@Matt_Striker_). McIntyre doesn't give Sin Cara any room to breathe.

Sin Cara finally hits a funky faceplant and gets some separation to speed things up. Sin Cara knocks McIntyre down and hits a springboard corkscrew plancha for a nearfall. Sin Cara to the top but McIntyre catchs the move and turns it into a powerslam for two. McIntyre to the top, but Sin Cara hits an enziguiri and goes up, but McIntyre pushes him off. McIntyre comes off the ropes, but Sin Cara gets around him and lands his jumping tornado DDT finisher for the win.

WINNER: Sin Cara in 7:45. Very watchable match, with McIntyre on sustained offense for quite some time. He has really developed since his feuds with John Morrison and Matt Hardy.
