Fandango def. Adam Rose
What is WWE obsession with putting these two up against each other? I've said it after each of their encounters and I'll say it again here: If they're trying to turn Fandango face, it's obviously not working. The crowds don't have any incentive to cheer for either one of these guys, so there's no real reason for me to care about the match. Worse yet, their Superstars match from two weeks ago was a vast improvement over this, making this a throwaway bout that accomplished nothing.
Jack Swagger def. Curtis Axel
Both of these guys are very skilled wrestlers, so it's a shame not more is being done with them. Unlike Axel, though, Swagger is actually over with the audience and could be a solid midcarder if WWE bothered to put him on Raw once in a while. To Axel's credit, he's got a fun little thing going with this "#AxelMania" silliness, so that's encouraging to see. Anyway, the match itself was pretty good and featured enjoyable action from beginning to end. There wasn't much suspense behind the finish, but it was a nice win for Swagger (even if it doesn't mean much).
While Fandango vs. Rose was an exact repeat of what we've seen from them before, Swagger vs. Axel was a solid of a match as you'd expect from them. It wasn't anything worth going out of your way to see, but if you happen to come across it on the live stream on WWE Network, you might enjoy it. In a nutshell, this was a pretty standard edition of Superstars and nothing more.
