411’s WWE Superstars Report 06.08.13

June 9, 2013 | Posted by Marc Elusive

Commentators: Matt Striker & Tony Dawson

Championship’s roll call: WWE Champion: John Cena… World Champion: Dolph Ziggler… Intercontinental Champion: Wade Barrett… United States Champion: Dean Ambrose… Tag Team Champions: The Shield… NXT Champion: Big E Langston… NXT Tag Team Champions: The Wyatt Family… Diva’s Champion: Kaitlyn

Tons of Funk (w/The Funkadactyls) vs. Primo & Epico:   Clay and Primo opens the contest and Primo tries a sleeper right off the bat but Clay backs him in the corner and gives him the André treatment followed by a delayed slam. Primo fires back with a headlock but gets caught in another bodyslam. Tensai tags and they hit tandem chops on Primo. He works the arm but Primo flips free and reverses; it does not last long as Sweet T uses his power to counter a monkey flip in the corner and reverses into his own. The delayed butterfly suplex hypes the crowd up and eventually lands for a one count. Primo retreats to the floor with his cousin as we segue into a break. We return with Clay dropping an elbow to Epico. He hits the Funky Avalanche but a blind tag allows the Colóns to take over. They quick tag on Clay and Epico hits a Hilo for two. Brodus tries to fight back but eats a dropkick; they team up to suplex the bigman but Primo misses the follow up top-rope splash. Tensai gets the hot tag and Sweet T’s all over everyone. He takes out Epico with the Cannonball in the corner but Primo breaks up the pinfall. Clay comes in and they hit a tandem suplex/neckbreaker and a running senton from Tensai gets the pin.   3.5/10 Essentially a squash match for Funk with the Colóns getting basically zero O in in defeat. I hadn’t seen them in a while and was wondering if they’d been released.

Here are your winners… Tons of Funk via running senton pinfall

The first set of Raw highlights is all about the Shield defeating Randy Orton and Team Hell No.

Natalya Neidhart vs. Tamina Snuka:   Tamina works the arm; Nattie flips free. She tries the Sharpshooter as the commentators discuss the upcoming Father’s Day and Jimmy Snuka and Jim Neidhart. They head to the floor where Tamina takes over showing Nattie in to the ring apron and the lassos her in a chinlock back in the ring. Tamina hits a running knee in the corner and then goes to a double armlock. This goes on for a while. Nattie frees herself but Tamina keeps the advantage with a legdrop. She makes another comeback, this time with palm strikes, and clotheslines. A backdrop is counters but Tamina manages a neckbreaker, for two. Nattie counters the Samoan drop into the Sharpshooter and gets the submission.   3/10 Sort and bland; all Tamina did was a few chinlocks. I actually am pretty surprised at the outcome since the WWE likes to protect Tamina, for some reason. I like Neidhart and is probably my favorite diva on the main roster.

Here is your winner… Natalya Neidhart via Sharpshooter submission

The show ends with John Cena and Curtis Axel from Raw where Ryback interfered.

OVERALL 3/10   A tag squash and a boring divas match leads to a pretty humdrum episode of Superstars.
