WWE Saturday Morning Slam 2/16/2013 Review

WWE Saturday Morning Slam 2/16/2013 Review

Last week's show is here:

Dolph Ziggler and Josh Matthews are at the booth:

Justin Gabriel vs Heath Slater
Battle of the former tag team champions here. They got into it last week with some arguing which led to this match. The last time these two met were on NXT 7/18/2012:
3MB got kicked out early.
"I came to see 3MB." - Dolph
"Well, they were out here collectively for a minute." - Josh
"And it was great. They left without giving an encore performance. Great rockband mentality." - Dolph
We got a don't try this at home ad with Heath Slater during the match.
"I talked with Heath Slater. He said he broke things off because he wanted to start a band and Justin Gabriel isn't muscially inclined." - Josh
The pin
Justin Gabriel got the win with a 450 splash. Good match here with Slater being a fun jerk heel and Gabriel doing his highflying. Dolph put the match over well on commentary and overall this had a little bit of everything. I really enjoyed it more than I thought and it was fun. Rating:***

Sheamus vs Cody Rhodes
These two have met up twice since July.

Their first match from Smackdown 7/27/2012 is here:

Their second match from WWE Main Event 2/6/2013 is here:

They said Cody won the spelling bee every year from Kindergarten to 5th Grade.
Sheamus greets a fan with a Sheamus sign
"Was that showing off Dolph Ziggler approved?" - Josh
"Absolutely." - Dolph
Sheamus won with White Noise. Decent match here with lots of mat work and Cody looking on level with Sheamus. Cody had some great facials here, but I just wish they could figure out how to work it into his gimmick. Not a bad effort at all.
Overall thoughts: Good show with 2 good matches. Can't ask for much more!
