Summer Rae and Cameron def. Naomi and Emma
It's not often we get Diva tag team matches on Superstars, so this was a nice little treat. I mean, there wasn't any storyline reason behind it (especially since Summer was seemingly a babyface in her match with Brie Bella on Main Event), but it was a refreshing change of pace. Cameron was limited since Summer did most of the in-ring work for her team, which is all one can really ask for. It was also great to see Emma get so much support from the live crowd. Is Colorado Emma country or something? The match was nothing memorable, but I appreciated it being out of the ordinary and everyone involved played their part well.
Fandango def. Adam Rose
Did anyone else feel like they were watching a repeat of SmackDown? It was almost the exact same match, only longer. I will say this, though: as meaningless as I felt the match was, I enjoyed their encounter more here than I did on SmackDown. They were actually allowed to showcase their in-ring skills and have a decent match, and Fandango went from having the crowd boo him when he came out to having them cheer him by the end. He managed to get the behind him in the final few minutes, so they weren't as dead for this bout as the SmackDown crowd was. I don't know if the Fandango face turn is here to stay, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.
This was one of the better Superstars editions in recent weeks. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a good show, but they managed to take two matches I wouldn't have cared about otherwise on paper and turn them into something decent. The tag match was fun while it lasted and Fandango vs. Rose wasn't as deplorable as I originally thought it was going to be. If you're the type of person who likes to sit through the Raw recaps (I can't imagine who would want to), Raw was rather enjoyable this week (in my opinion, anyway) so I can't imagine they're too terrible to watch, either.
