Cesaro def. Bo Dallas
I don't know about anyone else, but I was rather disappointed we didn't get to hear from Dallas on the mic before the match. I don't care for his in-ring ability too much, but his promos entertain me. Meanwhile, I'm glad to see Cesaro back in singles competition after being off programming for a few weeks, and I'm hoping this was a rest run for him on his own. He's too talented to be set aside on Superstars and he has a bright future as a singles guy if they chose to give him the push he deserves. The match was actually enjoyable and I got a kick out of Dallas' mannerisms. Cesaro's small tribute to Tyson Kidd at the end by winning with the Sharpshooter was a nice touch.
Luke Harper and Erick Rowan def. The Ascension and Los Matadores in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match
When was the last time we had a Triple Threat match of any kind on Superstars? I couldn't honestly tell you, but it's been a few years at the very least. Granted, nothing was on the line, but the match peaked my interest when I saw what was on tap for this week's episode. Then again, the outcome was never once in doubt given who was interested, but I still appreciated that it was something out of the norm. The crowd didn't have any incentive to cheer for any of the three teams since they're technically all heels (I refuse to refer to Los Matadores as babyfaces), but it was a decent match on the whole.
While neither match is worth going out of your way to see, this was a better episode than usual. Cesaro vs. Dallas was entertaining and it's always a treat to see Cesaro in action. As for the tag team match, it was nothing special, but it was something out of the ordinary and fun while it lasted. Additionally, the live crowd was more lively than usual for a Superstars taping, so this isn't a bad show to sit through if you have some time to kill.
