Fandango def. Adam Rose
If you weren't the slightest bit depressed while watching this match, you may not be human. It's just so sad to see how far both of these Superstars have fallen in the past few years. Fandango is going through the motions at this point and Rose is at least attempting to make the best of what he's been given but to no avail. He is beyond damaged goods and I don't think even a return to the Leo Kruger character could save his career. The match was fine for what it was, but as something we've seen countless times before, I couldn't have cared less about it and neither could the crowd.
Bo Dallas def. Darren Young
I couldn't tell you the last time Young was in a singles match (probably before he returned from injury earlier this year), but it was certainly a refreshing change of pace, especially compared to the previous matchup. I understand the argument from fans that he isn't as charismatic as his partner Titus O'Neil, but he proved in this bout he can elicit a reaction from an audience with entertaining antics. It made this match more enjoyable as a result. I personally would have had Young go over, but Dallas winning didn't surprise me considering he's the singles star and Young isn't.
Rose vs. Fandango was a complete waste of time and if anything, a reminder of how badly WWE has screwed up their respective careers. Each of them had promise (not much, but some), but they've been reduced to nothing. Dallas vs. Young, however, was a surprisingly pleasant treat that made this more than a forgettable episode. It didn't at all make this edition of Superstars must-see, but I liked it more than I thought I would going in.
