Titus O'Neil def. Justin Gabriel
It still boggles my mind all these months later that they haven't done anything with O'Neil. It's not even like he's a regular on Raw or SmackDown. He's just been making weekly appearances on Superstars. What a waste of talent. Anyway, at least his final match was a winning effort. This was a standard squash match that thankfully didn't overstay its welcome. Gabriel is also an excellent athlete, but he's damaged goods by this point and I don't think there's much that can be done with him.
Erick Rowan def. Cesaro
How did Rowan go from closing out Raw and feuding with Big Show to headlining Superstars? He could very well be back on Raw by next week for all I know, but it seems to me they've already given up on his push. I won't jump to conclusions, but I'll simply say that it'd be a major mistake on WWE's part if they've opted to stop pushing Rowan so early into his babyface run. The match was actually pretty good and better than their last encounter from last month on SmackDown. Most of that had to do with Cesaro, but Rowan deserves credit for holding his own as well.
The first match was total throwaway, but Rowan vs. Cesaro was actually half decent. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see it, especially considering it's Christmas (don't spend the holiday watching this show like a chump like me), but you're not wasting your time if you tune in. Additionally, you'll enjoy the Raw recaps if you liked Monday's Christmas Raw as much as I did.
