The Golden Truth def. The Ascension
Although these two tandems faced off last week on Superstars, this didn't feel like much of a sequel to that encounter (though I can't say I'm surprised). The only thing different about the bout was that it appeared to be more comedy driven. It's been well-documented that The Golden Truth do nothing for me and The Ascension are what they are, so the best thing I can say about this match is that it was kept relatively short and sweet and didn't overstay its welcome.
Baron Corbin def. Jack Swagger
These two have had a handful of matches in the past and have always worked well together. Thus, this was no exception. It's matches like this that should show the naysayers what Corbin is capable of in the ring and how he isn't a typical limited big man. Swagger scored an ample amount of offense, but not enough to make Corbin look weak. This was another enjoyable outing from Corbin and Swagger, but I hope WWE has a real direction in mind for Corbin sooner rather than later. He can be a very valuable asset to the heel side of the roster if utilized properly.
The more I hear Dolph Ziggler on commentary, the more he annoys me. It's painfully apparent he couldn't care less at this point and is making a mockery of this program (more so than it already is) in the process. At any rate, this was a standard edition of Superstars. The opening tag team match was a waste, and although Corbin vs. Swagger was entertaining, it wasn't anything regular viewers of the program haven't seen before, so I would pass on this episode until next week.
