Fandango def. Heath Slater
Wasn't it just last week that Fandango was a heel in a match against Neville on Raw? And now he's back to being a babyface? I should stop asking such pointless questions because it truly doesn't matter. As much as I despise Fandango's dumb gimmick, he is an excellent athlete and he put together a nice match with the equally talented Slater. The match was meaningless, sure, but it was encouraging to see the crowd "Fandangoing" after his win. I still say he's due a gimmick overhaul, though. He won't be taken seriously as a competitor until that happens.
Jack Swagger def. Bo Dallas
It feels like these two have had a million matches against each other over the last year, and more often than not, their matches tend to bore. However, this encounter was much better than I thought it would be. It wasn't a stellar match by any means, but perhaps the crowd being livelier for Superstars than usual in addition to Dallas' entertaining antics added to my enjoyment of it. As always, Swagger and Dallas trade wins all the time, so no need to read into Swagger's victory here.
As noted in the Swagger vs. Dallas match, the audience was more invested in the action than the Superstars crowd we usually get, so that was rather refreshing. Neither match was worth going out of your way to see, but both made good use of the time they were given. I'd love to see Superstars become more of a wrestling-oriented show on a weekly basis, but I'd reckon we just got lucky this week with this episode.
