Kalisto def. Heath Slater
It was cool to see Kalisto in singles action for once instead of yet another tag team match against The Ascension. He's been impressing me since his arrival in NXT about a year ago and he continues to shine even on his own. Slater was the perfect opponent for him as well since he's WWE's resident jobber (sorry, Slater) and he sold very well for all of Kalisto's offense. It was a standard showcase for Kalisto and, again, I appreciated it was something different from the norm on Superstars. He'll be a breakout star once he breaks away from Sin Cara, mark my words.
Stardust def. R-Truth
Is it just me or have the matches between Stardust and Truth gradually degressed in recent weeks? That's saying something considering how insignificant their first match was. I don't think WWE intends for them to feud but rather they have nothing else for them to do so they pair them together on all of their shows (Raw, Main Event, etc). It's a shame because as I've expressed countless times before, Stardust/Cody Rhodes deserves so much better. As you can imagine, this match was boring, inconsequential and didn't benefit anyone involved. The only real losers were the fans for having to sit through it.
Kalisto's singles showcase against Slater was fun while it lasted, but Stardust vs. Truth was total filler. Thankfully, Raw was solid this week, so the recaps are enjoyable, and re-watching John Cena vs. Neville is certainly a treat. However, you can catch that on your own time and isn't worth sitting through Superstars for. Neither match was important enough to warrant watching this episode.
