Jack Swagger def. Jinder Mahal
Prior to the taping, I was talking to my good friend Seth Guttenplan and we were joking about who we would see on Superstars. Lo and behold, Swagger was the first one to come out when the show started. The match was hardly anything of note, and as solid as Swagger is, Mahal simply bores me to tears. It wasn't a bad bout, but it hardly held my interest. If nothing else, the match was kept relatively brief and didn't overstay its welcome.
The Golden Truth def. Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel
I cared so little about Golden Truth (whose entrance I did not partake in by the way) coming out that I literally left to go to the bathroom as soon as the match got underway. Unfortunately, it was still going on by the time I got back. What I saw of it was all right, and there were a few entertaining antics from both tandems, so it wasn't a complete bust. If Dallas and Axel are going to continue to team without Heath Slater, why not call themselves The Social Outcasts again?
Both matches got the crowd warmed up for Raw, but neither of them lit the Barclays Center on fire. I didn't hate the matches, and I tried to pay attention when I could, but it was a forgettable episode on the whole. That said, I can only imagine how mediocre it was for those watching on the WWE Network, so I wouldn't suggest spending the time to watch it.
