WWE Superstars Results
May 1, 2014
Taped 4/28 in St. Louis, Mo.
Report by Justin James, PWTorch contributor
Superstars is back on Thursdays, at least for this week.
1 - SIN CARA vs. DAMIEN SANDOW
It's the battle of "wrestlers who can't get a win." Sin Cara with early pin attempts, frustrating Sandow. Neither man can sustain momentum for more than a minute. Sandow gets sent out of the ring to send it to break.
[ Break ]
Sin Cara in control out of the break hitting a slingshot senton for two. Sandow dodges a springboard clothesline to rally. Sunset flip from Sin Cara gets two, but Sandown responds with a dropkick for two. Side Russian Legsweep and the Elbow of Disdain for two. Sin Cara with a comeback. Sin Cara manages a one-armed powerbomb for two. Sandow gets knees up to block the Swanton Bomb and hits the You're Welcome for the win.
WINNER: Damien Sandow in 8:56. Dull match, which is a bit of a shame since I've seen some very good matches from both of these wrestlers before.
2 - NATALYA vs. TAMINA SNUKA
Of note, Snuka is still wearing an A.J. Lee shirt, and Lee's name is mentioned many, many times by the announcers. Back-and-forth action to start. Natalya tries the Black Widow, then slides down for a pin. Snuka tries a butt splash but Natalya rolls under. Snuka counters the discuss clothesline with a Samoan Drop. Stretch of offense from Snuka until Natalya gets some distance. Double underhook suplex for two for Natalya, then a backslide. Natalya wants the Sharpshooter, but Snuka gets to the ropes, Natalya pulls her away and a jackknife gets two. Superkick drops Natalya for three.
WINNER: Tamina Snuka in 4:12. That is one of the best matches I've seen Tamina Snuka in. I really liked the back-and-forth action, reversals, and counters. This felt more like an NXT women's match than a WWE Divas match.
