Jack Swagger def. Adam Rose
You could hear a pin drop when Rose made his entrance. How sad. He didn't do a single thing to elicit heat, either, other than signing his own name which was never explained. At least Swagger is still somewhat over with the audience. Neither guy cares at all anymore and it showed in this match. We've seen the match a million times before and it wasn't any different, nor was the outcome. In so many words, this was a waste of time.
Stardust def. Fandango
It's a shame both of these great wrestlers are being saddled with stupid characters. Stardust is much better off than Fandango at the moment, but neither gimmick is particularly over. Cody Rhodes has done all that he can with the Stardust persona, but he'll never get above a certain level with the way WWE has been handling him lately. Fandango won't get anywhere period as long as he's a ballroom dancer. Although it was a well-wrestled match, not even the Chicago crowd cared about it, which is saying something.
Usually Superstars gets a boost in front of a hot live crowd such as England or New York, but that was far from the case this week. Officials obviously phoned it in this week with matches we've seen before and putting stars on the show fans couldn't care less about. The only thing worth watching about this episode was Xavier Woods' over-the-top, hilarious commentary, which I'm sure was intentional to poke fun about how meaningless this program has become.
