Cesaro def. Heath Slater
Poor Cesaro. The guy got himself organically over after his series of matches with John Cena a few months ago, and now WWE is too stubborn to acknowledge his popularity and instead relegates him to Superstars. I normally say that a star being featured on Superstars is a promotion for the show more than a demotion for the star, but this has to be seen as a demotion for Cesaro, and all we can do is hope that it's only a one-off. I'm no Slater fan, but I'm sure fans of his were disappointed to hear he was on Superstars this week instead of Raw on his "Appreciation Day." Nevertheless, they produced a fun little match, and you could obviously tell Cesaro wasn't pleased with being left off Raw.
The Lucha Dragons def. The Ascension
Yes, it's a match we've seen a million and one times in the past, but they always work well together and produce quality matchups. This was another enjoyable encounter between the two tandems, but the absence of Stardust and Neville at ringside made it feel inconsequential from a storyline standpoint. The ending outcome was never in doubt, but it was a good match for the time it was allotted.
I'll rarely say that any edition of Superstars is "must-see," but this this week's two featured matches were above-average. Cesaro, despite how wrong it was for him to be on this show, was a treat to watch wrestle, while the tag team match was entertaining for what it was. If you have some time to kill, check out the two short matches, but skip over everything else.
