The Lucha Dragons def. Heath Slater and Bo Dallas
The Lucha Dragons are such a blast to watch in the ring that I'm surprised they're not getting more television time than they currently are. They were given a decent push following their debut on the main roster the night after WrestleMania 32, but we haven't seen much of them since. Nevertheless, this was a nice little showcase for them against two quality opponents (in terms of selling, not in terms of them being credible) in Slater and Dallas. I wish they were doing more with Dallas instead of marginalizing him on Superstars. Hopefully we see The Lucha Dragons enter the WWE Tag Team Championship picture in the near future.
Cesaro def. Luke Harper
To my knowledge, this was the first one-on-one match Cesaro and Harper have had in WWE, so that alone made this match very cool. As expected, they contested a very good match with plenty of back-and-forth action. We also got a sneak peak at a few new maneuvers we haven't seen from either competitor before, so it added a special feel to the match. It's unfortunate both of their tag partners are currently out with injuries, but it'd be nice if WWE realize the talent they had in front of them with Cesaro and Harper as singles stars.
This was an above average episode by Superstars standards with both of the matches being worthwhile. The tag team match, while nothing too special, was fun for what it was and is enjoyable regardless of whether you're a fan of The Lucha Dragons or if you haven't been too exposed to their work before. Cesaro vs. Harper is the match worth seeking out this week and I'd love to see it happen on Raw or SmackDown one of these days. Raw wasn't too great this past week, so you can skip over a majority of the Raw recaps if you wish and watch only the exclusive matchups.
