The 53rd edition of WWE Superstars came to you from the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ and from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. Just four days before the 2010 WWE Draft, WWE Superstars would feature an inter-promotional battle as John Morrison from SmackDown would go one-on-one with Carlito from RAW. Three nights before he faces former friend and tag team partner, JTG, in a Strap Match at WWE Extreme Rules, Shad Gaspard would be in action on WWE Superstars as he would go one-on-one with “The Bizarre One” Goldust. Also, the lightning-quick Yoshi Tatsu would go one-on-one with New England’s own Zack Ryder.
- Shad Gaspard def. Goldust by pin following Thugnificent.
- Yoshi Tatsu def. Zack Ryder by pin following a spinning heel kick off of the top rope.
- John Morrison def. Carlito (with Michael Tarver) by pin following the Flying Chuck Kick.
When it looked like John Morrison was about to win the match, Michael Tarver got on the apron of the ring and distracted the referee. However, while this was going on, Carlito had managed to roll Morrison up, but the referee was distracted by Tarver and did not see the roll-up. Morrison would come back and hit the Flying Chuck Kick en route to picking up the win.
With a new look to accompany his new attitude, the show opens with Shad Gaspard who, with the leather strap he will be using this Sunday at WWE Extreme Rules when he faces JTG in a Strap Match, went one-on-one with “The Bizarre One” Goldust in the opening match of the night! In the end, it was Shad Gaspard hitting Thugnificent on Goldust en route to picking up the win! What will happen in three nights’ time when Shad Gaspard and JTG will go one-on-one in a Strap Match at WWE Extreme Rules?
Yoshi Tatsu was in action on WWE Superstars as went one-on-one with “The Long Island Loudmouth” Zack Ryder. In the end, it was Tatsu with an impressive spinning heel kick off of the top rope that allowed Tatsu to pick up the win!

Then it was time for the inter-promotional main event as SmackDown’s John Morrison would go one-on-one with RAW’s Carlito, who was accompanied to the ring by his NXT Rookie, Michael Tarver! During the match, John Morrison looked like he was ready to put Carlito away, but Carlito managed to roll Morrison up. Unfortunately for Carlito, his NXT Rookie, Michael Tarver, thought that Carlito needed some assistance so Tarver got on the apron of the ring and distracted the referee. However, Tarver actually distracted the referee from seeing Carlito’s roll-up on John Morrison! After this missed opportunity, Morrison hit the Flying Chuck Kick on Carlito en route to picking up the win! How will Carlito respond to the constant mistakes made by Michael Tarver?
