WWE Saturday Morning Slam 4/20/2013 Results and Review

WWE Saturday Morning Slam 4/20/2013 Results and Review

Last week's show is here:

Mick Foley said he was a big fan of Jimmy Superfly Snuka and he said Kofi Kingston and Justin Gabriel were the two best high flyers today. He said they would go one on one. The two wrestlers argued over who would win and Foley made the joke of them going to the ring to "air out" their differences.

Kofi Kingston vs Justin Gabriel
Dolph Ziggler said this match should take place above the ring due to their high flying. Dolph also claimed they have had over 500 matches together and I'm calling BS on that. They traded holds and counters to start, while Josh Mathews said Justin Gabriel should be a member of 1 Direction. They both did dropkicks at the same time then had a stand off. Gabriel then went to the top and Kofi went to the other side of the ring to go to break. We came back and Gabriel had Kofi in a version of the abdominal stretch with focus on the right arm of Kofi. They then went to the mat.  Kofi then hit the boom drop and did a reverse springboard off the middle rope onto knees. Gabriel then did a legsweep into a standing moonsault. Kofi did another twisting dive off the top and hit it before nailing the SOS for the win. Good match here that followed the style of a 70's face vs face match. Rating:***1/4

They went to Natalya backstage with Primo, Epico and Rosa Mendes. Primo and Epico said they have been disrespected since Foley was in charge. They blamed Foley for putting them in against Khali. Rosa then got on Natalya's case. Rosa said she was "The true diva of Saturday Morning Slam". They called Khali clumsy and Natalya asked for Hornswoggle, The Great Khali and Natalya vs Rosa Mendes, Epico and Primo for next week. Natalya said Foley owed her a favor so this match would be sure to happen. This match happened on Smackdown last night.

Overall thoughts: Well, the one match shown was good and I'm fine with them setting up angles for next week. So it was okay.
