The 47th edition of WWE Superstars came to you from the Rose Garden in Portland, OR and from the Key Arena in Seattle, WA.

Following the recent rivalry between his NXT Rookie, Heath Slater, and fellow WWE Pro, Carlito, Christian would team up with MVP to face the team of Carlito & Chavo Guerrero. Santino Marella would also be in action against “The Long Island Loudmouth” Zack Ryder.

- Christian & MVP def. Carlito & Chavo Guerrero by Christian pinning Chavo Guerrero following the Killswitch.
The show kicks off with the opening match of the night as two of the eight competitors in the Money-in-the-Bank Ladder Match in seventeen days at WrestleMania would go one-on-one as Shelton Benjamin would face Dolph Ziggler. After his patented Zig Zag did not do the job, Dolph Ziggler instituted his “plan B” and locked in the legendary sleeper hold on Shelton Benjamin, which led to Benjamin being put to sleep and Dolph earning the win!
Two of the most bizarre SmackDown Superstars went one-on-one on WWE Superstars as “The Bizarre One” Goldust faced off with Mike Knox. In a stunning feat of strength, Goldust managed to lift Knox up and deliver the Final Cut en route to picking up the win!
Santino Marella was in action on WWE Superstars as he went one-on-one with “The Long Island Loudmouth” Zack Ryder. In the end, it was a timely distraction by Ryder’s girlfriend, Rosa Mendes, that led to Ryder hitting the Zack Attack on Santino and picking up the victory!
Then it was time for the main event as Christian would be looking to avenge his NXT Rookie, Heath Slater, following his “run in” with Carlito last week as “Captain Charisma” would team with fellow Money-in-the-Bank Ladder Match competitor, MVP, to face the team of Carlito & Chavo Guerrero. In the end, it was Christian hitting the Killswitch and pinning Chavo Guerrero en route to winning the match for himself and MVP!
