Bo Dallas def. R-Truth
Is it just me or does it feel like we see this same match every other week on Superstars? As I always say, while the match wasn't half-bad, I couldn't have cared less about it due to Truth's involvement, and the crowd was unsurprisingly sitting on their hands the entire time as well. The only positive coming out of this was Dallas winning for once, which was a shocker considering Truth always wins against fellow enhancement talent. It won't change Dallas' place on the card, mind you, but it was a nice change of pace.
King Barrett def. Jack Swagger
These two had a damn good match on Superstars a few months back, but since then, all they've had are forgettable encounters. I figured that would be the case when they wrestled on Raw and SmackDown, but I thought we'd get more out of them on this show. It was slightly longer than usual, but not that much of it was out of the ordinary. The crowd was more behind Swagger than usual due to this show emanating from his home state of Oklahoma, but despite taking Rusev to the limit on SmackDown this week, he still couldn't beat Barrett. Strange.
There are some weeks when Superstars can feature fun, new matches we've never seen before and the show can be worth watching, but once they start to repeat those matches to no end, that's when it becomes a bore. This was one of those weeks as Truth vs. Dallas didn't interest me in the slightest and Barrett vs. Swagger, albeit decent, wasn't worthwhile.
