Big E def. Titus O'Neil
I've honestly lost track of how many times these two have faced off in recent months, but they never fail to deliver in the ring. Big E has received mixed to no reaction as of late, so being in the arena for when this show was taped, I was surprised that the crowd was heavily behind O'Neil throughout the bout. This is the obligatory part of the review where I rant about O'Neil's current standing in the company and how he deserves better. This was a match that's been done to death, but at least it's always enjoyable.
Alberto Del Rio def. R-Truth
How sad and pathetic is it that Del Rio went from headlining a pay-per-view to competing on Superstars only a few days later? It really goes to show what WWE thinks of him at the moment and how he even landed a spot in that WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder match to begin with still boggles my mind. I don't know if the camera caught it, but there was a portion of fans at ringside that chanted Del Rio's name and he went out to greet them at one point in the match. Unlike Big E and O'Neil, these two simply don't work well together. It could have been much worse, but it was rather mediocre. The finish came across awfully bad as well.
First and foremost, congrats to Renee Young for landing a spot on the Superstars commentary team. Byron Saxton isn't bad at all, but Young brings a much fresher perspective to the table. Here's hoping this show is only the stepping stone to biggest platforms such as SmackDown or even Raw. Meet your replacement, Lawler! This episode featured some fun recaps from an epic Raw, but neither of the two matches are worth your time. However, I'd suggest watching the show if only to listen to Young on commentary.
