With "WWE Superstars" on WGN American emanating from Canada, things were certain to be big, and an explosive main event teaming the United States Champion Kofi Kingston & Divas Champion Mickie James against Carlito & Rosa Mendes definitely delivered. Add in a homecoming for Canada natives Natalya and David Hart Smith with the latter taking on John Morrison, and a heated battle between ECW Superstars Sheamus and Goldust, this may have been the most explosive edition of "WWE Superstars" to date.

Just 24-hours before facing CM Punk on SmackDown, The Friday Night Delight defeated the impressive David Hart Smith, which wasn't what Natalya wanted to see happen in Smith's homecoming match. At many times in the match, the Hart Dynasty member seemed just half a second from walking away the victor, but in the end, Morrison proved he wanted it more. After having already countered one Starship Pain, Smith fell to a second and the ensuing three-count did not please the Canadian fans in attendance.

It may seem that The Bizarre One used his experience to claim victory over The Celtic Warrior, but we think Sheamus would say otherwise. The saying goes that the Irish have bad luck if any luck at all, and after a match that seemed to be firmly in The Celtic Warrior's grasp slipped away due to an inside cradle, there's no doubt that the native son of the Eire would agree. Goldust may have won this round, but we don't think things are over between these two by a long shot.

In a huge upset, The Caribbean Superstar pinned the United States Champion giving him and Rosa Mendes the victory. A win over any champion is a big one, and even though things weren't looking good for Carlito, he made the right move at the right time dodging one of Kingston's high-flying maneuvers and reversing it with a Backstabber. Oddly enough, The Jamaican Superstar and Mickie James weren't the only ones to leave the ring with a sullen attitude. Despite securing victory for his team, The Caribbean Superstar retained the same bad attitude with which he initially entered the ring.
