The Golden Truth def. The Ascension
Thankfully for Viktor, Konnor has finally returned from serving his 60 day suspension, so he can now go back to jobbing in tag team action as opposed to singles competition. In all seriousness, this was fine for what it was. The Ascension are hardly a threat, but they were decent foils for R-Truth and Goldust. As unbearable of a tandem as they are to me, some crowds have surprisingly taken a liking to The Golden Truth, if only the children. Thus, at least the crowd didn't sit on their hands the entire time and were somewhat lively.
The Lucha Dragons def. The Dudley Boyz
This was on the same level as their match on the Money in the Bank Kickoff show in that it was well-wrestled and The Dudley Boyz effectively elicited heat from the audience by teasing them with tables only to not deliver. It's a shame WWE isn't doing more with them at the moment, but I respect them for coming back and putting over the younger talent. I wouldn't be surprised if they got split up in the upcoming Draft, but I'd love to see them as tag team champs one last time before they officially part ways.
It was a tag team showcase on Superstars this week and while neither match was too memorable, both of them were servicable in the time they were allotted and the live crowd seemed to enjoy them. It's a true testament to how loaded WWE's tag team division currently is that four teams were relegated to Superstars this week and had enough talent left over for Raw. At any rate, this isn't a must-see edition by any means, but rather an average episode on the whole.
