April 22, 2010

NXT Rookie Michael Tarver can't catch a break. Not only has the aggravated young competitor continually placed in the bottom of NXT polls, but he has repeatedly been a thorn in the side of his NXT Pro Carlito. Tarver's woes continued on this week's "WWE Superstars," proving once again that making it in WWE is not an easy thing.

After the disappointing events of tonight's main event, Carlito might be ready to give his NXT Rookie Michael Tarver a failing grade. For the second Thursday in a row, the young competitor attempted to help his NXT Pro grab a victory on "WWE Superstars" and ended up costing him the match. Still, it's hard to say whether or not the Puerto Rican Superstar would have defeated John Morrison anyway. The Friday Night Delight was absolutely explosive in this main event, hitting Carlito with an array of dazzling maneuvers on his way to victory.

Few Superstars have been experiencing the kind of success in 2010 that Yoshi Tatsu has been enjoying. Since winning the 26-Man Battle Royal at WrestleMania, the Japanese Superstar has been kicking his way through the competition and continued to do so tonight. Going one-on-one with Long Island's Zack Ryder, Tatsu showed off the educated feet he's known for, destroying his opponent with a series of bone-shattering strikes on his way to victory. After tonight's loss, Ryder should add training into his daily schedule of "gym, tan, laundry."

Shad def. Goldust (PHOTOS | VIDEOS)
Since viciously cutting ties with his Cryme Tyme partner JTG, SmackDown's Shad has been competing with a newfound mean streak. While the WWE Universe may not respect the big man's underhanded actions, they have to appreciate the physical dominance he showed in his match against Goldust tonight. The Bizarre One used everything in his arsenal in an attempt to stop the behemoth from Brooklyn, but he simply couldn't overpower Shad. Look for the same brutality when Shad takes on JTG in a Strap Match at Extreme Rules on Sunday.
