Summer Rae def. Alicia Fox
When was the last time anyone cut a promo on Superstars before their match? Summer running down Fox on the mic was a refreshing change of pace and what she said was actually somewhat truthful. Okay, so maybe not the part about Summer bringing change to the Divas division, but definitely the part about about the "Divas Revolution" and the massive flop that it was. The match wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but it's great to see Summer back in the ring after all this time. I have referred to her as damaged goods in the past based off how she has been booked in recent years, but there is hope for her yet as a wrestler.
Stardust def. Zack Ryder
These two have had no less than a dozen matches in recent memory and I'm desperately waiting for something new. At the very least, they work extremely well together and their matches are always enjoyable. This "feud" would mean more if the commentators acknowledged how they have been trading wins, but since that was never brought up, this felt like just another outing. If WWE plans on doing Stardust vs. Stephen Amell at WrestleMania, they are going to have to start building Stardust up now, otherwise no one will care.
While the match itself wasn't worth going out of your way to see, Summer vs. Fox had a different feel to it, perhaps because of Rae's pre-match promo and how she surprisingly won the match. Meanwhile, Stardust vs. Ryder was more of the same, making this an average edition of Superstars on the whole. If anything, stay tuned for the replay of Shane McMahon's Raw return from Monday night. I'm still getting goosebumps from that.
