Reks, who shot to WWE stardom by participating in the Bragging Rights tag-team elimination match after defeating Kaval on SmackDown, had too much for his opponent, despite Masters being the larger and stronger of the pair.
The dreadlocked superstar managed to eliminate Santino Marella from the RAW team before succumbing to Sheamus’ Brogue Kick and suffering elimination himself against the team from RAW.
On Superstars, however, he made short work of Masters, countering the often devastating Masterlock and hitting a big boot followed by his finishing move, tentatively titled “T-Reks-Plex”, to get the three count.
His new persona, which resembles what has been described by some in the industry as a destructive looking Rob Zombie, has led to Reks catching the eye over the last few weeks and he will be looking to capitalise on his stardom on Friday Nights.
Breakdown
The other big story to emanate form the show is the continued breakdown of the former WWE Tag Team Champions, the Hart Dynasty.
Having found wins hard to come by in tag team action in recent times, the duo saw a further singles loss for Tyson Kidd to the “Long Island Loudmouth”, Zack Ryder.
Kidd was seemingly on the verge of disposing with Ryder, when suddenly his partner, David Hart Smith, decided to get up on the ring apron and try and get Kidd’s attention.
After this Kidd missed with a springboard elbow drop and was downed by the Rough Ryder to give the outspoken New York native a win on his return from a few weeks out of action.
The tag-team pair then nearly came to blows after the bell and had to be separated by Natalya as Smith left the ring, leaving their valet consoling Kidd.
Mark Henry also returned after being sidelined with personal troubles to easily defeat Jey Uso.
In a complete miss-match of size and power, Henry dominated the Uso twin and after only three minutes landed the “World’s Strongest Slam” for a confidence boosting victory. MVP also emerged victorious over Curt Hawkins, thanks to the Play of the Day.
Hawkins will need to improve if he is to make an impact on SmackDown now he has alienated himself from former tag partner, Vance Archer.
