Natalya def. Alicia Fox
One advantage to having WWE Superstars is that it gives performers, specifically the Divas, more time for their matches. However, that opportunity felt completely wasted here. The match between Natalya and Fox was fine for what it was, but the finish seemed to come out of nowhere. It was only mere minutes long, probably the same length it would have been on Raw or SmackDown. So, what was the point? This show constantly consists of Raw recaps, so why not cut one out to allow the women to go longer? Based off Natalya's post-match interview, this match was nothing more than a plug for the return of Total Divas. As good as Natalya is in the ring, her mic skills leave something to be desired.
R-Truth and Xavier Woods def. 3MB
Putting two teams that no one particularly cares about at the moment against each other might not be the smartest idea, but this is Superstars after all, so I can't say I'm surprised. The in-ring work was good, so take nothing away from the in-ring action, but it's just so difficult to get excited about any involved in this match right now. 3MB is a complete joke, Truth has been stagnant for years, and Woods is damaged good at this point. One can only hope that McIntyre being clean-shaven and the fact he inadvertently knocked Heath Slater off the apron could be a sign that he'll be leaving 3MB sooner rather than later, but that is mostly wishful thinking on my part.
After a few weeks of solid shows, this edition of Superstars failed to keep that strong streak intact. This show didn't feature any top talents like in past weeks, nor were either of the matches all that memorable. They weren't terrible by any means, but they failed to pack a punch and do anything to boost the momentum or credibility of anyone involved. In other words, don't bother checking out this week's episode unless you desperately have some time you want to kill.
