MVP def. Carlito (PHOTOS | WATCH)
As NXT Rookie Michael Tarver's WWE Pro, Carlito's job is to show this newcomer how it's done in the ring. Tonight, however, the Puerto Rican Superstar failed to teach his NXT Rookie a lesson. Instead, he ended up on the receiving end of a devastating Playmaker from MVP and lost his bout. What's even more frustrating for Carlito is that it was Tarver's botched interference that led to his loss. How will the apple-spitting Superstar deal with his winless NXT Rookie?

Evan Bourne & Yoshi Tatsu def. Chavo Guerrero & Zack Ryder (PHOTOS | WATCH)
Two of Raw's most exciting Superstars joined forces this week as Evan Bourne & Yoshi Tatsu teamed to take on the arrogant duo of Chavo Guerrero & Zack Ryder. While the self-proclaimed "Mexican Warrior" and The Long Island Loudmouth proved to be worthy opponents, the two simply weren't able to keep up with the explosive offense of Bourne & Tatsu. In the end, "Air" Bourne nailed Chavo with a breathtaking Shooting Star Press to pick up the victory for his team.

Beth Phoenix def. Layla (PHOTOS | WATCH)
Beth Phoenix would like nothing more than to get her hands on Women's Champion Michelle McCool, but at the beginning of this week's "WWE Superstars," Vickie Guerrero made it clear she'll make sure that never happens. Claiming that The Glamazon is "too manly" for a Women's Championship opportunity, the Official SmackDown Consultant said Beth would never get near the title.

Unsurprisingly, Vickie's controversial statements enraged The Glamazon, resulting in a rough night for the always annoying Layla. Battering her opponent with serious power maneuvers and a devastating Glam Slam, Beth picked up the victory and made it clear that she's coming for McCool's Women's Championship — whether Vickie likes it or not.
