Sin Cara def. Jinder Mahal
I still don't understand that for all the trouble you hear Sin Cara is backstage why they bother keeping him around. It's not like he's making them any money or is of any real value to them. The character has been damaged goods for years. Anyway, this was a relatively decent match, but I couldn't care less about either one of these guys right now, so I didn't have too much of an interest in the match.
Bo Dallas def. Curtis Axel
Of course, I was already aware of this, but hearing the commentators acknowledge that both of these guys are second-generation stars blew my mind. And yet they're considered jokes for how badly they've been utilized in recent years. I thought this was a better wrestled bout than Cara vs. Mahal and told a superior story simply because of the history they have together, but the fans sat on their hands throughout. And can you blame them? Axel is hardly a babyface and Dallas' renewed push flopped miserably.
This was a pretty standard edition of Superstars in that it featured two matches that weren't horrible yet the crowd was largely quiet for both bouts because we've seen them before. Worse yet, this was Canada, and they're almost always loud! That's when you know a match is meaningless. In so many words, no need to go out of your way to watch anything from the show this week.
