WWE Superstars Redux (September 30th, 2010): Twintuition Comes Through Again

The Divas return to WWE Superstars as The Bella Twins take on Alicia Fox and Jillian. Check it out below:

Alicia (accompanied by NXT Rookie, Maxine) with her Tina Turner esque outfit, and Jillian are the first tag team to make their way down to the ring. Jillian, of course, begins to speak to the audience about the laryngitis rumor being completely untrue and tries very hard to prove it to those watching by showing off her redonkulous singing skills. Her song of choice? “Love the Way You Lie” by Eminem and Rihanna.

This may be my very first time being excited to see the Bellas. My ears are thanking them for interrupting the drowning cat… err, I mean Jillian. They are accompanied by their NXT Rookie, Jamie, looking prepared for a war with their camouflage get up. Can’t say I’m a fan of the curtain like material covering their boots, though.

Alicia is in the ring to start the match with Bella #1. Bear with me, you guys. I have no idea which twin it is and of course Cole & King didn’t bother to help. Alicia and Bella #1 lock up before Alicia pushes her off. Alicia tries to go after her with the clothesline, but she is monkey flipped by Bella #1. Numero uno delivers a couple of forearms to the face of Alicia, who tries to counter by ramming her head into the turnbuckle, but Bella #1 is able to block it with her foot and throws Alicia into the turnbuckle face first. She gives Alicia a kick in the gut for good measure before tagging in Bella #2.

The twins take advantage of the tag and execute a modified monkey flip on Alicia. Bella #2 tries to finish Alicia off early with the cover, but Foxxy ain’t having it as she kicks out and kicks Bella #2 in the head before tagging in Jillian. Jillian goes right after #2 Bella, but is slowed down by a sit down jaw breaker. Jillian scurries to the ropes and tries to catch her breath. Bella #2 doesn’t want to waste any time, goes after Jillian, and gets kicked in the gut for her sense of urgency.

Jillian irish whips Bella #2 in the corner and gives the crowd another wonderful performance of her excellent vocal range before attempting the handspring elbow into the corner. An attempt it was because Bella #2 plants both of her feet right into the back of Jillian. Bella #2 sneaks a quick elbow to the face of Alicia, snaps Jillian’s face to the canvas, and front rolls to the opposite corner for a tag to Bella #1.

Both Bellas are in the ring and proceed to scramble Jillian’s brain with their asses. The ass shaking is put to a halt when Alicia tries to save her partner, but runs right into a double elbow from the Bellas. Alicia and Jillian are now on the outside where Alicia happily assists Jillian back into the ring where she is hit with a couple of forearms by Bella #1. Bella #1 tries to send Jillian to the ropes, but she reverses and Alicia grabs Bella #1 causing her to trip face first onto the mat and drags her out of the ring leaving Bella #2 alone.

Jillian wastes no time going to the outside and rolling Bella #1 into the ring. Well what do you know…

King: Is that Brie?
Cole: … I’m not quite sure. It’s hard to tell.

Thank you, captain obvious. I really appreciate the help -_-. Back to the match, where Jillian now has Bella #1 hooked for the pin. The Bella is able to kick out at two and Jillian awards her with a nice yank to the hair followed by a slam face first for her efforts. Jillian tags in Alicia who straight to Bella # 1’s hair and pulls her to the middle of the ring for the cover. Bella #1 kicks out and a furious Alicia begins to club her in the face before locking her in an arm bar. Bella #1 is able to get a quick elbow to Alicia’s midsection before Alicia sends her into the nearest turnbuckle. Alicia comes right after her but Bella #1 moves out of the way causing Alicia to hit the turnbuckles knee first.

Even with her bum knee, Alicia is able to get the tag on Jillian who grabs Bella #1 by the foot, but not before she is able to tag in her twin. Jillian tries to take the quick shot at Bella #2, but she ducks and head butts Jillian in the head stomach before coming into the ring. Jillian tries to get her revenge with a clothesline. Bella #2 ducks and takes Jillian down with the head scissors followed by a series of drop kick and slam down to the mat, face first. Bella #2 goes for another pin, but Jillian kicks out again!

Bella #2 pulls Jillian up, trying to send her to the nearest turnbuckle, but Jillian reverses and comes back with a kick in the gut. She then hoists Bella #2 on her shoulder and drops her right back down with the Samoan drop. Feeling that the end is near for the Bella Twins, Jillian goes for another, but yet again, Bella # 2 kicks out! Jillian takes a moment to chastise the ref, before pulling Bella #2 up by her hair, and sending her to the ropes where she is able to hold on and kick Jillian in the face! Alicia tries assist her partner on the apron, but Bella #2 is already aware of her sly, foxxy ways as she delivers a forearm to her face.

While Alicia is down on the apron, Bella # 2 gives Jillian the sunset flip. She tries to get Jillian down for the pin, but Jillian doesn’t comply. Alicia tries to help her, but Bella #1 comes into the ring and drop kicks her. The ref is distracted while Jillian is getting the pin on Bella #2 so you know what is next. Bella #1 does the sunset flip on Jillian while Bella #2 quickly slides out of the ring. Finally, the ref takes his attention off of Alicia and back to the action, counting Jillian down for the 1-2-3. The Bellas celebrate leaving Alicia and Maxine to argue in the ring, but Jillian plays the mediator and breaks it up before a lengthy NXT Recap is shown. Too bad they didn’t even mention that the show was going to be broadcasted on WWE.com. Cole says that the switch was a “little bit of magic!” and “double trouble!” Okay, how about a “little bit of cheating!” and “double cheaters?” *Sips tea* I don’t like cheaters.

I found myself wishing that Matt Striker and Josh Mathews were on commentary during the entire match. At least they would’ve cared enough to call it play by play and would’ve known which Bella was which. Although, the Bellas put 100% into this match, I felt the other two were holding back a little bit. Maybe it was because they were working with wrestlers who don’t have a lot of in ring experience and wanted to be extra careful? I don’t know, but I just felt like they could have given more. Speaking of giving more, I’m assuming you all know about Jillian being taken off of TV to train women in FCW. I felt like the WWE could have given more to her. She was able to take a not-so-good gimmick and make it work. It would’ve been nice to see her in some of those Michelle/Mickie/Melina/Beth feuds. Hopefully we will see her on TV sometime again in the near future, but until then I’m going to miss her screeching some of America’s top songs.

    I thought this was a pretty decent match, I like the Bella’s, i know they can get annoying with there switchin and all that, but i think they can pull off a good tag team match, there superstars matches are always awesome, and Nikki is clearly the better wrestler, and Jamie looked hot, and Alicia and Jillian did good as well, i am glad Jillian is gonna be a trainer and she is gonna make the girls alot better, and Maxine was kinda just there and forgetable

  • fanboy

    I thought the match was like any other Bella Match.. but the ending was nice…

    I wonder if what jillian said about the rumors of her and her laryngitis was not true sort of like another way of saying her rumors of her being retired was not true.. hope so.. I wanna see Jillian on my tv… I have to admit… I just started liking Jillia early this year cause I just realized what a great performer she is… (Im 17 and I’ pretty much attracted to eye candy girls and faces) but Jillian is my fave HEEL…

    i think this was a good match the bella have come along way and they can wrestle maybe not like other divas but at least they know the stuff they have to

  • mah

    I always belived that the twins are not bad at all but they should be used better thats all…these two can be put in a true storyline but it wouldn’t be WWE if it happened!!
    gonna miss Jillian more than anything :(

  • NT86

    The Bella’s are much better in the ring than they get credit for, but they need a better gimmick. This has been going on for 2 years now and they’ve not really had anything to do in that time. That mini feud they had could have been interesting, but it’s about time they are given more individual looks/appearances. That way at least one of them could break out as a single’s star rather than both remaining as two lower-end Divas.

  • GailKimFan09e

    Awesome Review Shanti loved the captain obvious bit to micheal cole lol and completely agree with u jillan did deserve more i felt like she is the Alissa flash of the wwe in the sense that they never really used her right and both Jilian and alissa flash are really impressive girls.

  • Aksana

    And this is why Jillian should be a FCW trainer, shes thought as a joke in WWE. Shes the Bellas jobber, and her gimmick is just terrible…

  • shameronstar

    LMAO you know from Naomi’s Booty Call to the Bella’s Bella Bumper or what ever the hell that was it’s nice to know some of the divas know how to use their ASSets to their fullest advantages

  • LaceyVonErichFan

    I never took the Bellas as bad wrestlers they were always decent to me but you know what ruins them for me.. its them acting like “whores” around male guest hosts and they makes there division look like a bunch of prancies.

    Alicia looks so amazing, that attire she wore is officially my favourite of all time use to be Eve’s ‘over the limi’ attire but Alicia stold the glamorous look of the 6 divas there w/ the gold striped boots and the chinease like top, she is one of the only divas to actually match every single part of her attire even her hair is very organized and beautiful, hate it when people are ignorant and critisize her skirt for being ‘pinata’ like does it really matter, it actually goes good w/ her attitude runway walk down the ramp.

    About the match i just can’t believe it was 13 minutes. That is a record… i think that was the first time since like 3 years the divas got more than 12 minutes :O i thought the match was decent not the worst nor the greatest but still was entertained.

    @ LaceyVonErichFan … “hate it when people are ignorant and critisize her skirt for being ‘pinata’ like does it really matter, it actually goes good w/ her attitude runway walk down the ramp.”


    @ LaceyVonErichFan … “About the match i just can’t believe it was 13 minutes. That is a record… i think that was the first time since like 3 years the divas got more than 12 minutes :O i thought the match was decent not the worst nor the greatest but still was entertained.”

    › bell to bell it was like seven minutes, but yeah, that’s a long match for the divas, lol. but i wasn’t surprised .. they always seem to get longer on superstars because i guess wwe has “nothing better to book” ahead of them >_> and i love it when the divas matches are first because as some loser pointed out in an interview..the divas lose time for their matches when other people go overboard, so the divas going first means they are the deciding factor in whether if they want to use up all their time or not, and they can go over it. fight the power! >_> lol

    › any who, i’ll be the first to admit that i hated tiffany & the bella twins when they first debuted because they all seemed useless. i loveeee tiffany now, and the bellas, well they may still be useless, but they’ve really improved. the only way i got tired of the switcheroo bit was when it was revealed that they were twins yet they kept switching under the ring. Now-a-days, however, it seems that they’ve gotten a lot more creative with their switches and I love it. Some time ago in a Superstars match against Jillian, I absolutely marked out with Jillian didn’t allow them to switch, which was a first, yet they still found a way to do it and in quick fashion. This week was no different. While the referee’s back is turned you just leap over and take over in an instant second with a sunset flip .. didn’t see it coming. Would have expected the typical Bella #1 dropkicks Jillian into a reversal pin by Bella #2, not a switch, and they did it and it was good. Oh and just LMAO at Jillian being the mediator of Maxine and Alicia fighting, she’s so funny. She’s like the female Santino except she never gets boring, and it sucks that WWE treated her the way they did. Jillian had the characteristics to be just like LayCool, except for the fact that she was alone and maybe funnier and had a longer time with the gimmick. WWE wasted her truly .. hopefully she can teach the FCW girls a thing or too.

  • LaceyVonErichFan

    @unscripted & flawless

    well not literally a 13 minute match but 13 minutes w/ the divas being on TV.

  • Hamada+VonErich

    I think the Bellas have come a long way since starting out. People are always all “Ew, the Bella Twins! We want Tamina, or Beth or Natalya..” etc. At least they have actual moves! Not like Kelly, who does a frickin whirlybird and wins!

    oh and btw, about Tamina, she isn’t that great just yet. Her FCW matches aren’t really anything special, people just like her because she’s associated with Snuka :/

    Nikki > Brie
    The match was really nothing special. I think they should turn the Bella Twins heel. Their switches work into a heel factor. Plus Nikki was a good heel back before WM 25 so i think Brie would fit that role good.

    This was a really good match. The Bellas were great.
    The ending was great. I expected they’d pull that trick, but the way they did it surprised me.

  • pourquoi-bitch

    That was a clever switch-a-roo.

  • http://twitter.com/iTripp Tripp

    Nikki is definitely the better wrestler of the two. Always have liked her more :]

    Sooo gonna miss Jil but at least she finally gets to do something.
    the mini fight between Liviana [Sounds better than Maxine] and Alicia was a bit confusing. I thought that Alicia and Jil should of been arguing. But w/e

  • AdriRay<3Maryse

    The Bella’s can be annoying, but I agree, with a good storyline they can really shine!
    I would love to see one go heel personally!

  • melina prez

    Ok to good match and jillian should have won her last match !!!!!!!!!
